Here's a link to a short video that Marty took of our week:
All good things must come to an end so very early on January 1st it was time for our visitors to head back north 😂. We had a wonderful week, the next time we see Elizabeth she'll be a college freshman!!
We were very luck with the weather - it was in the 80's all week and sunny. Alabama was rainy all week so we definitely did the right thing heading east.

When Liz was here she wanted to go to a flea market (gotta love that girl). We never made it while they were here but we did go to the Webster Market on Monday, 1/11. We bought a few t-shirts for 2.00 each and some lemon bread and enjoyed walking around looking at everything. I even got some ideas for possible future craft projects.
|FiestaWare - my favorite!|
We also made it to the Tampa RV Super Show (the largest in the U.S.). We had fun walking thru lots of new RV's ( we still like ours better than any others we've seen). We also walked thru the vendor area and talked to a few places about possible future workcamping jobs. We even saw Kelly, our boss from Amazon - no, we are not going back there!
Our park (Sumter Oaks Escapee Park) is small and quiet. We walk the park a couple of times a day to get our steps in (3 times up and down each row = almost 10,000 steps).
|These noisy sandhill cranes rule the park (there are two of them)|
|Tree faces are everywhere|
|We have some real "asses" for neighbors|
