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.

Bath Day With The K9000

Casey, our dog was beginning to get really grubby so it was time for a bath. We noticed a car wash near by that also had a dog wash. This was all new to us but we thought it deserved a try. The K9000 operates just like the car wash....you put your money in the slot , select wash, soap, flea wash, rinse, and two speeds of blown warm air.
Casey really had a great time in the K9000, can't you tell! Soooo, the bottom line is although it was a little pricey...$8 - $10, it did do a pretty good job

Was a rainy day so went to check out the new Harley place at Daytona. Must have had a couple mil of inventory sitting on the floor.

Actually I am not a big fan of Harleys but I do appreciate a nice looking piece of machinery and this was one beautiful trike.

If I was to ever even think about a Harley, it would have to be the V Rod. Nice color, and only $17,700.00.

This is an older bike but new as a custom.

Another custom nicely done.

Anyone for ice cream?

Another classic

This is a real beautiful bike, note the front suspension!

Oh yeah.....and then there was Elvis.

In the parking lot there was this mega BBQ Cooker.

This was way cool

And it looked like the section at the end was actually capable of working. Must be great at cook-outs.

The alarm goes off at 6:30 AM and I drag myself out of bed. Casey always seems to have other ideas.
We have been painting the service post at each of the sites.....yea, that's me hard at work!

Took An Airboat Ride Today

We traveled to our destination, Midway Airboat which was about fifteen minutes away.

Inside the gift shop, Joyce found this pig. If you pat it, it squeals. Really cool!
This is the airboat that we went out on.
500 plus cubic inch big block with a four blade prop.

This Gator is approx. 10 - 12 feet long.
Gators were everywhere you looked.

Gators were even with the cattle that free range the area. The Gators don't bother trying to eat the cattle because they're too much work to eat. The fish and bird are very abundant and easier to catch.
A good shot of us and our friends Don & Lucy. No....I'm not sleeping.

Yes that's a real gator that Joyce is holding.
A short video on our ride which actually lasted an hour.

The grass at our site was in tough shape so we picked up some grass seed to see if we could brighten up the yard a little. Joyce also asked me for a palm tree so I did a transplant on a small palm. Now all I have to do is water......a lot.

Swim Time For Casey

Joyce found info on a dog beach in New Smyrna, Fl. so off we went to find it. There's a $5 charge and the dogs must be leashed at all times but Casey didn't mind.

The coastal lighthouse.

The intercoastal waterway connect with the ocean over by the lighthouse. Another couple came along with their dog that was afraid to go into the water. Casey put on a show and wanted to play. Before you knew it, the little dog was chasing Casey in the water.

Even the Dolphins came by to see what all the splashing was about.

Cocoa Beach

A day off from work so we took a ride to Cocoa Beach to see if anyone was at the beach. Lots of Surf shops in town.

There's a pier at the beach that is a real classic.

At the pier, the top rail seems to be a bit old
Some history of the pier but if you can't read it, click HERE
And yes.....there were people in the water.
Oh, and did I mention that Joyce has signed up at the local SPCA to do volunteer work.

Pot Luck Supper

We did the pot luck supper tonight, you have to bring a food item that matched the first letter of your last name.

These are our friends Maggi & Mike that we met at a campground we worked at last summer in Florida. We are working together again.
And our other friends, Don & Lucy are also working with us here in Florida. It's nice being able to work with friends.

Vicki's Birthday

Vicki's birthday ( Vick in the center) and we all went to Epcot. Jess our granddaughter (on the right) made shirts for us......cool. Everyone was trying to read our shirts.
We stopped for lunch and Vick got the special treatment and the Happy Birthday song from the staff.

The girls were having a good time.

We did the GM test track ride. WOW was it fast.

Car of the future design.

Birthday girl with Donald.

Oops......I forgot to smile. I think I was trying to hide.

The park was really nice.

Happy New Year And Beyond

First there was New Years and the party at the campground, I forgot to bring the camera.

And then there were the girls at Disney while I work camped.
Back at the campground we had to dig a trench to fix a broken water line.

Kind of reminds me of state workers, one works while the others watch.
