Living a life of leisure isn’t very conducive to writing a travel blog.
Our typical day starts early. Because of the heat & high humidity we make it a point to be up & out the door ready to walk by 6:30, 7 am at the latest. Although we only walk a scant 2 1/2 miles, we return to the Suite Pea drenched in sweat. We follow that up with breakfast & a refreshing, cool shower.
It’s during this time we hash over what we shall do with our day. With Don the answer to that question more often than not is to head for the beaches of Sanibel. We’ve become enmeshed in activities at Seminole as well. Don has enjoyed being part of a golf foursome & we have a small group that we play Euchre with regularly. Susan has introduced me to shopping at Beall’s Department Store & Outlet. And all the other park activities I’ve mentioned in previous posts. Tonight’s was the chili cook-off followed by a band, dancing, imbibing & a campfire.
We both are having a good time at Seminole Campground. Don, so much so, that he’d like to return for the 2014/2015 Winter season. If we were “just” Indiana Snowbirds I could easily agree to that BUT I’ve learned I have a restless spirit & just like the rolling stone that gathers no moss, I have the urge to visit someplace new next season. Since a good partnership is about compromise, I have conceded to wintering in Florida again in 2014, perhaps the eastern side next.
All in all, no matter what we choose to do with our day, we ultimately end it with another walk after the evening meal. The goal is to get 10,000 steps on my pedometer by days end.
Here’s lookin’ at you kid……………………….
