Spring is here!!

Our last post was September. Sorry, but a lot has been happening.  Most of Oct/Nov was spent roaming through Florida then on to Big Pine Key for the winter.

Had a blast By ourselves on a Native Airboat in the Everglades.

And enjoyed some kayaking in the rivers and shallows of the Gulf.

When we were on our way we got to see some old friends who now live in Florida, John and Suzie, Lynne and Tom, Sue and Dan, and Lynn and Al, ‘NOK Bob. 

Al and Lynn came over Christmas and we fished and footballed…GO Pats..

Trisha and Paul visited the keys and we had fun beach hunting and bridge fishing.

Paul got then only keeper!

We had a great season at Royal Palm RV BPK such wonderful friends.  We will be back next winter.

We bought a house!  North Port, Florida.  Found it in November on line while we were in Boston.  Made an offer in December on our way back to the Keys.  Passed papers in April after a torturous wait (short sale), and moved right in!

Great private location on 3/4 of an acre… 26 minutes to the ocean… 10 minutes to the Myakka River… near Interstate 75, Venice, Sarasota, and Port Charlotte… all the shopping and transportation ever needed!

The house is awesome.  Three bedrooms!  A pool!  No furniture!  The furniture is coming in the fall… yes, after we sell our home in Quincy.  Life moves in funny ways. 

So with all these bedrooms and plenty of space for family and friends,  we hope to have many visitors.  Returning to Quincy in early June, we plan to see everyone… a busy and exciting summer awaits. 

Meanwhile the Airstream is taking a well deserved rest in North Port.  See you all soon!


Doug Sharp and Tom Wilson are building 2 Stripbuild Melonseeds. And Barbara and Tom's Camping travels.
