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.

Our Location today is Venice, Florida.

The forecast for today was for more rain but when we woke up this morning all we could see was bright sunshine. The temperature was back to a comfortable point away from the freezing mark but the wind was really rocking the trailer. Rather than staying in the trailer and getting motion sickness we gathered the GPS and cameras and headed out the door with a list of places to check out. Since this is a new to us part of Florida we wanted to familiarize ourselves as to where things are located. 
Clear skies starting to cloud over.
Next year when we return to Florida we’ll be spending the month of February near Punta Gorda so we thought that we’d check out the park today. It was quite the drive back south on highway 41 traveling back on roads we’d driven northbound to Venice on Wednesday. We drove for nearly an hour before reaching Sun’n Shade in Boca Raton. This is not something we normally do but we just drove into the park. 
We'd all like to live here.
It is an older park but is well kept with a few seasonal park models spread throughout. The rest of the sites were for mobile RV units. Each site has its own cement patio and fire pit with two cement runners to park your vehicle on which would save the wear and tear on the grass. The roadways were asphalt and wide enough for two vehicles to pass. There was a swimming pool, shuffle board and horseshoe pits. Since we didn’t enter the office we could not see any kind of store on site but there is plenty of commerce not far up the road in Punta Gorda. 

By the time we’d driven back into Port Charlotte we were starting to feel hungry so we pulled into the first restaurant we saw which just happened to be Bob Evans. It gave us a rest from driving and a refreshing but inexpensive meal. Kathy had chicken salad with fruit while I chose another breakfast type meal by having a southwest omelet with hash browns.

One of the things we had planned on going to see today was Muscle Car City that is located on highway 41 in a fairly large building but it appeared very busy and since it is close enough to Boca Raton we’ll save that for next year when we’re staying here for a month. 

We did find the Sun Flea Market Star in Port Charlotte. It is housed in a fairly large building as well and since this was Friday we didn’t have to put up with the weekend crowds which made it much easier to walk around and take your time looking. It also houses an extremely large Kids Star park attached to the food court which allowed the children to wear themselves out while mom or dad did their shopping. Kathy found a nice magnetic bracelet she liked and we found a new door mat for our trailer. He had all kinds of mats for every type of RV but only one was for a fifth wheel so it was meant to come home with us. 

After a quick stop at Winn Dixie for some supplies it didn’t take too long getting back to the trailer. While Kathy was putting the groceries away I was outside grilling a couple of hamburgers on the Weber Q. 
That's a lot of wet weather heading our way.
While we ate supper the weather forecasters were giving their opinion on the possible weather we’ll have to put up with for the next few days. No matter if we have nice or bad weather we’ll find something to do. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
