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.

Things Are Moving.....Slowly

They have poured the concrete.
 That indentation is our screened in room.
 They still have to do the pad for the coach and that will be where the car is.

Finally Broke Ground

We took a ride to our home site to see what had been done. In this pic, I am standing at the end of the pad where the coach will be parked.
 This is a shot of the footprint of the home.
 This is a street shot of the home pad. You can see the 5th hole green in the background.
 The plumbers will be laying pipe next week, then the concrete will be poured.

We say goodbye to this beautiful winter scene as seen from our window.
  Casey takes her last look.
And we pass through Providence on 95
 Three days of travel coming up.
The coach was due for oil filters and grease, and I was dreading having to make an appointment when we got to Florida. That's when I received a comment from one of our readers (thanks Jim ) about Speedco. This is like a Jiffy Lube for large diesel trucks and motorhomes. Had all work completed in about one hour and saved a bunch of money.
 Day three and we are pulling into camp at 2:00.
This was probably our smoothest, most uneventful trip yet. I wish they all went this good.

Here We Go Again

Back at our site in Florida there's a Cardinal that loves to drive me crazy by pecking at the roof over our bed every morning. I think he followed us here and I'm hoping to lose him on our way back.
Well, I guess there's no way that we are going to get out of here without having to deal with the snow. Started about 9 am and supposed to end after noon sometime.....ugh! Casey had a fun time with it.
Time to hook up the Jeep so we can make our 8 am departure tomorrow morning.

We'll Be Moving Out Of Here Soon

We are beginning to get things ready for our trip next Wed. back to Florida. Joyce has finished her Xmas shopping for the grand daughters, and will pass out presents before we leave.

I really need to get an oil change for the coach but will wait till we get to the warmer climate.
We will be taking the yellow Jeep Wrangler and the bikes back with us.

I am ready to get a move on before the really cold weather hits here. Besides, they have broken ground on our lot and I want to get pictures as things progress.

The Ladies Are Off Again

I had things to do today so the ladies took a ride to the Cape Cod Canal. Along the way they stopped to check out the Buddhist Temple along the way. When completed, this will be the largest Buddhist Temple outside of Thailand. This temple is being built in honor of the king of Thailand who was born in Cambridge Ma. while his father attended Harvard.
 Once at the Cape, they stopped at the famous railroad bridge along the canal.
 I have never seen the bridge in it's lowered position.
 Stephanie standing at the shore line of the canal with the Bourne Bridge in the background.
 I never realized there was a memorial erected to men that lost their life during WWII while serving aboard a sub.
 Stephanie at the start of the canal as it open to the ocean.
 There is a store at the approach to the Bourne Bridge that has this neat windmill.
La Salette Shrine started it's festival of lights Thanksgiving night. The girls went to check it out.
 S is for Stephanie
 Megan doesn't mind the cold, she's our grand daughter that lives here.

 Stephanie enjoying the displays.
 This is Clopper, he looked lonesome.
 Joyce looks like a bear with all the coats she has on.

 This year they Shrine changed to LED's to help lower their electric bill.
 Hard to get a good picture of all the lights.
Time to head home for the night.

Happy Thanksgiving

It's Thanksgiving and whereas we are in Ma. I guess it's only appropriate that I find a Pilgrim Thanksgiving poem. Not matter what problems or worries may plague us, we can always find a reason to be thankful if we take the time to look into ourselves.


The Pilgrims Came
by Annette Wynne
The Pilgrims came across the sea,
And never thought of you and me;
And yet it's very strange the way
We think of them Thanksgiving day.
We tell their story, old and true
Of how they sailed across the blue,
And found a new land to be free
And built their homes quite near the sea.
Every child knows well the tale
Of how they bravely turned the sail
And journeyed many a day and night,
To worship God as they thought right.

Storm Has Passed Us

The "Big" storm has passed us without any damage. So today is a lounge day for some of us.
If you look at the neighbors driveway, you can see the flooding. We only lost reception on our Dish when the wind moved it.

The Start Of Another Chilly Day

19 degrees at 8:00 AM, ah nothing like the crisp fresh morning air.
 But...not all of us were ready to get up. Yup....Casey is sleeping with the house guest.
 A late start (11:00 AM ) but we are on our way to Plymouth. We stopped on the way to see some of the cranberry bogs.
 Plymouth is only about an hour away so it was a short ride.
 We usually park at the pier where the Harbor Master is located.
There's a fish market on the pier that also has a restaurant where you can get fresh seafood.
 Stephanie had chicken for lunch??????
 Picturesque area.
 Plymouth Bay
 Kids had to play in the snow!
 Clicking on the picture will enlarge it.
 The Mayflower II is docked here in Plymouth and the ladies went in for the tour.
 That's them walking up the ramp
 And on their way out.
 A short walk away, is Plymouth Rock.
 There it is....just a rock!
 Some info on the rock.
 There are some really beautiful homes in this area.
 No.....we didn't let her go in the bar.
 We have some stormy weather coming tomorrow so not sure what we are doing. We'll see!
