Marching Along

Another week or two have slipped away and we have managed to keep busy, you know, doing stuff.

Although, we didn't capture EVERYTHING in pictures, we did catch a few things, such as our rib meal we cooked up here at the campsite.

We went out on a canoe trip with people from our campground on the Myakka River, which is adjacent to this piece of property we call home.

It's a lazy river and we meandered for 3 1/2 miles and then back again.

We slid quietly past a few alligators that day.

One day, we bopped around Venice with Beth and Gary. We also celebrated Gary's completion of radiation treatments with a great party at their house. (No pictures, sorry!)

We went to a Twins game

at the Rays' stadium in Port Charlotte.

  We love spring training games. Paul likes being able to be so close to the action.

And, I like the Philly Cheese Steaks!

We were there with the McDougall clan when Keith and Lu were in town. It was so fun to visit with them!!!

We went to the Englewood Music Festival with Jim and Mary and had a really fun time watching people and listening to music. Here's Jim and me catching the view right by the stage.

The last act was a Motown review and we knew all the words!

Most nights, you'll find Paul and me sitting around our Florida "campfire."

We're enjoying our time, but we are talking about our trip home. It will be here before we know it! I suppose we'd better think about those taxes!

Where is Kent's Twins wear? What a good looking group. :) Looks like you are having a great time, no surprise there! If the start of March is any indication of what is to come, I think you'll come home to some really beautiful spring weather (fingers crossed).

Looks like you guys are seriously living the way we all should live during retirement! Awesome! How peaceful a canoe trip sounds! I can't believe how close to aligators you get!

Glad you are having such great weather and good times! What a blessing to have so many McDougall's in one place @ one time!

The picture of the clan made me wish we could have joined you! The weather looks gorgeous! The food, tantalizing! Enjoy every minute you have left!
Love to all!
