Vero Beach tour

We visited our friends Barry and Linda and got the full tour of Vero Beach... They have a love and a great sense of pride in what their home and city provide for them.  Here pictured is the Driftwood Inn.

Just got this photo in an email and I see the grandkids are making great use of our tree

Its hard to post to the blog with the connection we have, so will try later

This is one of many projects that Maureen dreams up and I get to do...the holidays are special to her and I get to share in her creativity!  I am going to cover the Home Depot legs with tree bark as soon as I can.

Good People make Great Friends

We met our first bloggers!  Barry and Linda dropped by and spent a couple of days with us at Lake Kissimmee, Florida.  Barry took this picture that I "borrowed" from his site RV Anytimers
You can go to his site for all the details.
My internet connection is bad so will publish this and try later.  God Bless the Veterans!! Thanks to Barry and Linda for being such good people!

Campground clue

This stone was used to build the Castillo de San Marcos and was quarried from the Campground where we are volunteering...

Here we see the stone in use....the workmanship has lasted hundreds of years.

We also "volunteered" to stay at our campsite which is only a 1/4 mile from the beach!

Our site is down this road...Can you guess the campground yet?

Here is Nellies lion.....:>)

Where are we?

We crossed this bridge guarded by lions!

We would run up these steps if attacked....

This is the view from the top

Can you guess the city we are in?  Bonus! Guess the campground

KOA life

Our manager is very experienced and well suited to get the job done...I was very impressed with his way of getting the young summer help to work and take pride in their efforts.  Look Mo up if you travel to the Myrtle Beach KOA

Our friends from Bulgaria
"Ziva" lives in  South Carolina
Great people...great time

We Are Here....

click to enlarge
No....we are not at Fort Wilderness Disney World yet!!
Sure looks like it though.  We are working here at the Myrtle Beach KOA in South Carolina and having a blast.
The managers are a husband and wife team with the wife using a experienced landscaping eye to maintain the grounds as the husband works daily to improve his vision of the ultimate KOA... giving this park its old southern charm right in the middle of a premier beach destination. Did I say we like it here?
click to enlarge
Here are some cabins that sit back into shade created by tall white oaks and pine trees. These trees produce oxygen and a gentle breeze that cools the campground so much better than the RV "parking lots" at other campgrounds
click to enlarge

This is the back of the campstore early am before the guests start to move can see the pool area and the forest of trees where the RV sites and cabins are well placed...our workcamping adventure starts here each morning.  We will be here until September 15th so drop by if you are in the area!

Finishing Touches

Here we see the typical encounter of the stallions during the mating season.  I of course never had a camera ready when these horses danced, but a visit to Assateague during April-June will give you a first row seat.  I just got the Verizon Broadband and a netbook for Maureen so we will no longer rely on local WiFi.  I will get back to visiting my Blog friends real soon!

On the Road again!!

We are in North Carolina headed towards Myrtle Beach, SC.  I have so much to report about our stay at Assategue so I will get at it as soon as we arrive.  To the right is a picture of the lawn maintenance crew!

This is Sham, King of the Assateague ponies.  He is 21 years old and has never lost his herd of mares.  In May, these horses are forever trying to get a herd of their own.  I saw some magnificent encounters.

Waiting for an opportunity

Birth Control didn't work this time!

I will get up to date and start to post regularly again...I am using the park WiFi in N.C. and will have access at the KOA in MB.

No Internet!

I will not have access to my blog until May 4th or 5th.  We will be on the move May 1st to Assateague.
Check out our next RV! Whoa!

Assateague is a barrier island

On the bayside of Assateague, you can walk the marsh and discover the large variety of shellfish and birds that call this reserve their home.  As my adventure unfolds, I will keep posting the events as they happen.  We will be here until July 1st.

Great Adventures

Click to Enlarge
We spent some time with two great young people last night and they really have it together. Kirsten's boyfriend Dane is planning a Grand Canyon hike soon and the pic to the right may be one of the trails he follows.  You can find more info on hiking the Canyon by going to this:  FAQ Page

Click to Enlarge
This waterfall at the bottom of the Canyon will be a welcome respite from the heat that Dane and his friends will encounter, among other things....!
This experience will not change his life, but he will have a greater regard for it...:>)

Love the hat...

We seldom post pictures of our grandchildren but in this case, our youngest grandson is properly disguised and loving the camera! With 10 grandchildren we feel so blessed that we can love such adorable spirits...
When we begin our travels, ample time will be given to staying within driving distance of our grandkids.  I hope he is not going to the racetrack!!

Maureen says that in a hostage situation, I would be released first.
I think that she could be right!  This week will be Humor week so until the full time life gets rolling, I am going to make Maureen laugh.

Leaving Home - Flying Away...again

All this preparation for the full time lifestyle brings you to the realization that you have to leave home... again. No make believe...everything real. Those days when living was an adventure and each day filled with possibilities of success and misfortune will soon be upon us....again. On reflection, life has lost some of its mystery, but our childlike curiosity has returned and we are excited about the quest...Its our story and it begins...again
