Leaving Raynham New Year's Day
Temperature was 4 degrees when we left at 6 am. We had over a foot of snow the day before. We are thinking of leaving before December next year.
Dave and I left Raynham on New Year's Day. The temperature was 4 degrees and lots of snow lay all around our Fifth Wheel. There were no teary eyes as we headed south out of Dodge and into warmer weather. We spent our first 2 nights out at my daughter and son-in-law's house in Maryland. Spending time with our three granddaughters there was exciting and entertaining as always.
Leaving Saturday morning and driving into the early evening, we found ourselves in 60 degree weather at supper time, where we put up for the night in the Georgia Welcome Center. By noon the next day, we were in Florida and wonderfully warm weather. We spent Sunday and Monday nights at a Martin County Park, Phipps Park at the St. Lucie Locks. The park is located next to the Army Corp of Engineers Park.
The locks are on the Intra-Coastal Waterway which connects the Atlantic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico through Lake Okeechobee. We had never seen the locks operated so up close and personal and it was very interesting to see.
