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.

Leaving the Keys and Friends Behind.

Our Location today is Miami, Florida.

Like we said in last night’s post our two week stay was over and we left Sugar Loaf KOA. As we got on Highway 1 at 10:00 this morning Kathy said she felt sad leaving this wonderful place as it seemed to be growing on us.

Besides we were leaving new found friends Karen and Al that we only managed to get together once with and our latest friends Doug and Nancy. Here’s praying that nothing bad happens to anyone and we’ll see Karen and Al again next year or maybe down the road in Georgia. As for Doug and Nancy we’ll hope they can stop in on their cross Canada trip for a visit. With wheels under our RVs through safe travels there is always that chance we’ll meet again.

Kathy and I had discussed a purchase we were going to make so once we reached the Marathon K-mart we pulled in. When we got to where the item was located we had to search for it even though the shelves had been overflowing with them just over a week ago. By this time it was nearly 11:30 so we walked to the other end of the parking lot to have lunch at McDonald’s. 
Start of Seven Mile Bridge.
We were on our way again by 12:00 noon and now we would start to see the last of the scenery we had become enchanted with. As the miles added on to each mileage post we watched the last of the mirror like clear water go by.

It was nearly 2:00 by the time we were escorted to our site but our neighbor John became a one person welcoming committee. We did share some interesting information that will definitely help us in some of our future travels. Our plans are to only stop here for two days so I only connected the water and electric. We didn’t even unhook the truck. 
Rough sky and calm waters.
For supper I grilled a couple of hamburgers on the Weber but Kathy had to fast think a way to serve them because the buns had gone bad. She’s very imaginative and still came up with a great presentation for the meal. 

Since the Miami area is expecting a line of thunderstorms later tonight after supper we spent some time in the pool. It was cold getting in but by the time we left it was colder (to us) getting out. 

Tomorrow we’ll relax a bit and finalize the next few stops on our way home. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
