It's about time.

Many of you that can relate to this. Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" to follow our dreams.

Rainy Day Activities.

Our Location today is Crystal River, Florida.

Something was definitely wrong! We slept the entire night with the bedroom window open and that 61 F (16 C) fresh air just made us sleep like logs. By the time we had our breakfast and I had gone outside to dump the tanks the sky was starting to cloud over. I had no sooner gotten inside to check my E-mail and a light rain started.
By the time I finished reading the morning blogs we follow Kathy was already cleaning out the fridge which helped her to create our lunch. Kathy and I have a standing joke because neither of us likes to waste food and most times when you cook a meal you have leftovers. Lots of people just reheat those foods and it tastes like it making it somewhat not very appealing. Kathy recreates the leftovers into a totally new dish that unless you knew it was made from leftovers you wouldn’t believe it thus not wasting our money and keeping leftovers out of the landfill.
Italian Omelet.
Crisper Chips with Dip.
After the lunch dishes were finished we figured we needed some exercise and thought walking around the park would be good. Walking around the lower section of the park after a half hour we stopped to check the pool which didn’t seem too busy so we headed back to the trailer to get our swimsuits on. In the ten minutes we were gone the pool nearly filled.
The water was comfortable and soothing helping to ease a lot of our aches and pains. We struck up a conversation with Bill and Karen from northern Georgia and were the clouds building around us. At this point another younger gentleman standing on the deck behind Kathy starts telling her he’s going back to the motorhome to check the windows in case it starts to rain. As he turns around he runs right into his wife who was standing behind him. Her haircut and Kathy’s were almost identical and just seeing the back ofKathy he thought he was talking to his wife. We all had a good laugh but with the increased wind knew it was time to head back to the trailers.
This guy was on the other side of the park today.
It was still early and I needed some supplies at Home Depot so off we went. The lower seal on our shower door split allowing water to leak out. It may not be perfect by I bought a self-adhesive weather strip that I’ll have to cut to length but it should work.

From there we decided to drive back to Walmart for something we were looking for but only bought a coffee at the in-store Dunkin Donuts. Heading back towards the trailer we stopped at an Ace hardware just to look around. We found a water fitting that I had been looking for that Home Depot didn’t have. Isn’t that the way it always works?
Yesterday when we had been out visiting the Archaeological dig and the Marsh lands they were located down the road from one another. Another site we had planned on visiting the GPS insisted we were at when we were at the dig site. As we were leaving the Ace hardware store today there was a sign directing us to it two miles down the road. The site we stopped at was the Yulee Sugar Mill Ruins which is located in Homosassa. It was a thriving sugar mill and plantation until the great American Civil War after which it never reopened. It is also the oldest historic structure in Citrus County and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
By that time it was starting to get dark and we were getting hungry so we stopped at Kentucky Fried Chicken. Kathy order a two piece meal while I ordered a three piece because I was feeling hungry. My jaw nearly hit the floor because those pieces of chicken were so large the one piece was the size of what a three piece meal would have been back home. We are definitely not hungry after eating all that. Kathy was concerned when we had just sat down to eat our meal and the rain started coming down in sheets and thunder and lightning for effect. That did slow how fast we ate and it finally slowed a bit after an hour.
Back at the trailer Kathy was starting to think we might be needing our kayak if the rain doesn’t slow by morning. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. I am used to portioning meals from my restaurant days so we very seldom have leftovers.
    American chickens are much larger than Canadian chickens, did you not know that !

  2. Recently started reading your blog. My wife and I plan to begin our almost full time RV life in June of 2014. I was surprised to see you are in Citrus County! We live in Lecanto. Hope you enjoy you stay in our beautiful area!
