I like a little bit of Winter…cozy days by the fire, watching the birds at the feeders, the pretty snows that outline the branches, but I am always ready to head south in March.
I made my plans last year and got my reservations in order, but…changes.
We had to plan our departure date around the weather (we drive through Dixie tornado alley), so we left early to sneak through on days between storms. We managed to avoid winds or rain and it’s been warm and sunny since we arrived.
One of my complaints about trailer trippin’ is the lack of RV parks that have availability, especially this time of year in Florida. The Snowbirds start to leave in March, (having been here since November) but they amble out throughout the month. When we realized we needed to leave earlier than planned, there were few options, so we grabbed a convenient KOA here in Perry, FL.
There is nothing to do here…Nothing…seriously. And they close down all of Nothing on Sunday. It’s a decent campsite, though, and we’ve been organizing things in the trailer, which we couldn’t do in the 20-degree temperatures that we left behind.
I do love my Trailer…enough to name it Sonnystone2…but I was thinking about re-naming it “Like a Rolling sonnyStone”. We haven’t made the sign, yet, so what do you think?
We’re just relaxing, but there’s drama going on back in Evansville that I am dealing with. My uncle Jr is dying and had I been there, I would be with him at the hospital. I’ve spent quite a bit of time on the phone, but I could have been much more effective in person. I feel guilty, but keep reminding myself that many, many things are not in my control and I’ve done the best I can.
Tomorrow we’re packing it in and making a little 4-hour drive to St. Augustine Beach (our original destination) to stay for the week. There’s plenty to do there…
…So if you go from nowhere
On the road to somewhere
And you meet anyone
You know it’s me.
