Cedar Key FL

1 week stay at beautiful Cedar Key..very small RV Park but one of our favorites..they have a lot of little docks to fish from and watch gorgeous sunsets..lots of Michiganders here and most are about to migrate North just like us..it's nice to hear that Michigan is starting to warm up..we hope to scoot thru the Southern states and avoid any storms..got 1200+ miles to traverse and since we only do about 200 miles per day it'll be a week or more to get back..hopefully we won't see snow like we did last year on April 5th !!..We'll hold true to our 45F rule..if it goes below 45 we pause or head South..gonna be a bit more expensive this year as most gas prices are near $4/gal..it was $3.20/gal enrt South last fall..we usually budget $600 each way so 1200mls at 10MPG = 120gals x $4 = $480..still under budget !! ( our heat bill is usually $1500+ per winter at home )..we are travelling with Hooter Brown and so we stay entertained every day.. We find it hard to believe we've been on the road 6 months !!..Starting to daydream about bonfires and getting together with friends this summer..can't wait to see what kind of a mess we'll find in our yard from the winter, it usually takes a few weeks to clean it up..Keep checking in to follow our migration North...REMEMBER..LIVE YOUR DREAMS AS TIME GOES BY QUICKLY..Charlie & Heather

Another Florida day--Homosassa

Had a Snowy Egret join us for dinner tonight..it was even eating out of our hands!! How Cool !! Manatees & dolphins cruise our RV Park docks in the morning..A neighbor gave us a freshly caught Brown Speckled Trout and it got skinned and flipped right into a pan for dinner last night..YUMMEE!!..The pub here has nightly specials which means we don't cook too much while here..Went shopping this morning so we're stocked up til the end of the week when we move up the coast..only 1 more Florida stop then we dash thru the Southern states to avoid the spring storms..Glad to see it's getting warmer up North..hope there;s no more Artic blasts as we'd hate to have to turn South again..OKAY Michigan..get ready for a fun summer!!REMEMBER..LIVE YOUR DREAMS AS TIME GOES BY QUICKLY..Charlie & Heather..

Bradenton Florida

Got on the road at 12 noon and had a nice 1 1/2 hr drive up to Bradenton. Restocked the fridge and LP gas enroute. We'll be moochdocking in my daughter's backyard for a few days..After hello hugs we got a tour of her house and it's very nice. She just got done painting inside and out and it looks great. Bradenton has done a lot of growing since the last time I was here..I'm really tired tonite so I'm gonna keep this post short..Hope everyone sleeps well..REMEMBER...LIVE YOUR DREAMS AS TIME GOES BY QUICKLY...Charlie & Heather
