Hi everyone, Most of what we have been doing is repetitive as we have ‘settled’ in our Fort Myers, Fl life. Monday a.m. meeting, followed by water aerobics for me, line dancing Monday evening, Flea Market early a.m. Wed., Bingo Wed. evening, yard sales early a.m. Thursday, Friday & Saturday followed by Flea Markets on Fri. Sat. & Sunday. We also have an ice cream social every Sunday evening (all you can eat ice cream for $1.50). We went to an RV show in Tampa and ‘ran into’ some of our friends whom we will see when get to Clermont, Fl. in March. We went to a large antique show in West Palm Beach, Fl. and saw some dealers whom we set up next to in Brimfield! (Small world for sure). In addition on Jan. 31 ... read more

So…..we left Biloxi, MS on Jan. 2. Our intention was to spend the night in a Wal-Mart parking lot about halfway to Fort Myers. The day was cloudy and drizzly, there was an accident in the tunnel we had to pass through in Alabama – so we waited in traffic for quite a while (long enough to turn the ignition off and just sit). We hit the Florida state line about 3 hours later. It was still cloudy and drizzly and since we had to switch back to EST, it was now an hour later. It was starting to get dark, so we found a small campground right off of I-10 and we pulled off the road about 3 pm. Good thing we did, as it was really cold that night and since we stopped at ... read more

Weather has been holding out, mostly cloudy but very pleasant and warm. Generally, we've just been heading out in the morning with no particular plan, sometimes spending the day with Miranda, Ben and the kids, other days just checking stuff out on our own. The other day, we found a Peruvian restaurant & bakery called El Patio. We can eat hamburgers and sandwiches anytime so wanted to try Peruvian food. We didn't know what to order so just asked the waiter, we found it similar to a marinated stir fry with herbs, served with rice, very flavourful. Ian liked the Peruvian beer called Cusquana. We drove out to Fort Myers beach one day, it was super busy, I mean crazy. We were stuck in at least an hour of traffic just getting there. Ian says it's ... read more

I am reminded why we don't generally travel during the holidays like we did on Christmas Eve. We work up at 4:45 am to over 20 people waiting for a shuttle to Spokane airport that holds only six, luckily a taxi got us to there on time. In spite of experiencing the busiest airports I have ever seen, our flights were on time, our luggage was there, our car rental worked perfect, what more could we ask for? I forgot our GPS at home so we winged it and got lost trying to find our hotel but eventually we figured it out with some help from Miranda who called my cell looking for us. The first two rooms they tried to put us in - the room keys didn't work, then the TV remote didn't work, ... read more

Florida’s Gulf Coast – Naples, Fort Myers and Sarasota We have spent the last two days watching the rain from our room in a small hotel in Fort Lauderdale – very Irish weather here in Florida! We were saddened to return Rudy V to its owners. We had grown very comfortable to our nomadic mobile home life on the road. We had driven slowly across Florida from Naples on the Gulf Coast, through the Big Cypress National Park and Everglades to Fort Lauderdale on the Atlantic Coast along Highway 41, also known as the Tamiami trail, the previous day. That’s where we stopped to take the photos of the basking alligators and get a genuine fright when two of them crashed into the water toward us a moment after taking the photo previously posted. They moved ... read more

We took a little explore of Fort Myers’ River District on a recent Sunday afternoon. Downtown has undergone some cool transformations making it very attractive. We avoided the many parking garages and valet parking opportunities and pulled the Jeep into a free space along the street. The annual boat show was in progress and the town was hopping. We ordered a pitcher of sangria at Los Cabos Cantina at 2226 First Street. We had a lunch date over in North Fort Myers so didn't order food; but the menu offers what looked like great Tex Mex cuisine. Our sidewalk table was a great vantage point for people watching and taking in the hustle/bustle of the palm tree lined street. It not yet Thanksgiving but the streets were beautifully dressed with green garland and red velvet bows; ... read more
