Quoted From A Fellow Traveler:

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

The Great Outdoors RV Resort

The Great Outdoors RV Resort was only about ten minutes away so we thought we'd check it out.We had to stop at the main gate and was told to proceed to the visitors center.

On the way to the visitors center we wanted to check out some of the homes.......BUSTED!!!! Security came up behind us with all the lights flashing, we felt like criminals. "Follow me to the Visitors Center, was what we were told" This guy had no sense of humor and thought he was a real cop. We followed him.
At the visitors center we met up with a sales rep. and proceeded to the homes.
There are variations of what they have to offer here but they are all based on RV ownership. You can get just a concrete pad or all the way up to a homes worth hundreds of thousands.
We wanted to look at homes with less than 1500 square feet of living space. We started here. The RV area has full hookups at each of the sites which also includes cable TV.
This home is a pre-owned and offered as furnished.

We like the open floor plan, and I like having my coach right on site and not in a storage area miles away.

This is like a second small bedroom but doesn't matter because your RV can be used to accommodate guest if needed.

The lanai is usually a screen room but this home turned it into a climate controlled extra room.

The master bedroom was of a good size.

Another shot of the master bedroom.

There's one area in the complex where you can bring your dog to play.

There's a good sized doggie play area.

The people paint the names of their dogs on concrete tiles.

This home is also a fully furnished pre-owned home that's for sale.

Living room looking out the closed in screened room.

Looking at the kitchen area from the living room area.

Another not very good shot of the living room area.

Just a shot of the area between the homes.

We like the fact that the homes are of mostly different designs and colors.

This resort interested us a an alternative to the Villages but we are still waiting for our home to sell but it's nice to check out different places.

Another Day

Took Casey to the beach, had to find a place where there are no Gators. So we stopped under the bridge that takes you over to Cape Canaveral. This cool van was parked in front of us.
Casey had a good time running around in the water. Must say that the water wasn't that clean looking.

On our way back we stopped to take this picture of this storm that passed.

Today Joyce washed the windows on the coach and I just had to get a shot of it. I had the hard job of moving the ladder around.......not fair!

Fish & Chips

Friday night is fish & chips so we usually try the local places. They gave us these to munch on while we waited for dinner. Powdered hush puppies.

World Famous Dixie Crossroads Seafood.
Joyce had the clam strips.

I ordered the Cod and got more than I really could eat.

We did have a few leftovers

I mowed this lawn at the entrance to the campground yesterday and noticed an area of pretty wild flowers.

Nice huh!

So we parked the Jeep while I did my thing.

And picked flowers for my honey. Joyce likes having fresh flowers in the coach.

Our New Location

We had to take a ride to Cape Canaveral, the shuttle came in this morning and announced it's presence with a double sonic boom that was loud enough to blow open the door to the trailer next to us.

We are only about ten minutes away so it was a short ride.
Info along the way.

I believe that this is one of the launch pads.

And here's the assembly building

Moving On

We have moved on to another campground close to the Villages so we could visit our friends John & Beth. There weren't many people here.
In fact, this is the row that we are parked in. You can see the hitch of a trailer to the right of the picture....he left about an hour later.
So we have plenty of empty room so Casey can play Frisbee.

We met up with John & Beth to do a little shopping in Spanish Springs at the Villages. That's John and Beth with the straw hats. They were having a live concert in the square along with a small flea market.

This shot was taken from the edge of the fountain that surrounds one side of the square.

The center of Spanish Springs is designed just like a real Spanish town.

It was great seeing our friends again but it was time to move on to our next destination. The campground that we were heading to had GPS coordinates so I plugged them in to our GPS and off we went.

Well I must have gone brain dead because two hours later we found ourselves on this road.

Oh Oh!!!!!!!

I should have known that something was wrong when the road turned to dirt. The problems is I had to continue on till I could find a place to turn around. Two miles later that place came up.

Unhook, turn her around on a one lane dirt road with a small side street. Lucky there was only that one tree.

Now to hook up and back track.

Turns out that we were only one street off from our turn off route 46.We made it to our location which is in Titusville and about 1/4 mile from interstate 95.

This is our camp site, not as nice as what we are use to but the price is right.

I will be talking to the manager this morning about work camping here for the next six to seven weeks, and the possibility of returning in January. This place is only about 35 miles from Disney so it's a good home base for things to see and do.
