March 2013

We leave Florida tomorrow morning. Here is a slide show of our past month. Music is "Sailing On" by the Derek Trucks Band. We are sad, but on to new adventures.

And another month flew past...

Where did February go? We had a busy month in retirement land. 

Here is my latest slide show. The music is "Under The Boardwalk/Sand in My Shoes" performed by the Persuasions. 

I missed taking pictures at the celebration for Kent's party to celebrate the completion of his master's degree, so I wasn't able to include that event. Make sure when you see him next, you tell him congratulations! I am so proud of him!

I miss my kids. That is all.

January in Venice, Florida

January passed quickly. Our goal is to post a slide show monthly with picture highlights of what we have experienced. It is a good way for us to organize our pictures and memories. Hopefully, you will enjoy it as well. There are quite a few pictures of orchids this month. Sorry, not sorry.

Other than missing the kids, it has been a great month here at Camp Venice Retreat

The music we have (appropriately) chosen is "Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes" by Jimmy Buffett.

Getting Settled

We are settling into our spot here at Camp Venice Retreat. We both were pretty exhausted by the drive down. Escaping ice and snow while pulling a camper is not easy. But, we were here in time to celebrate New Year's Eve with the Florida siblings. Good times.

A few orchids jumped into our cart yesterday. I vowed to curb the temptation to plant too many pots of flowers because I don't want to haul them back with us in April. So far, we have 12 pots. See how successful I am?

A couple who are also staying here stopped yesterday to introduce themselves. When I asked them how they found this park, the lady said, "Well, actually, through your blog." You could have knocked me over with a feather.

A herd of wild pigs has been wreaking havoc at night within a few feet of Betsy. They dig up the ground and make a real mess.  I think we might need to host a

There are banana leaves right here to wrap the pig before roasting. There has to be a butcher around here!

I'll keep you posted.
