We were hoping to get a another week here at Jonathan Dickinson State Park but were only able to add two more days so our stay here totaled nine days. The down side is we won’t be here for Thanksgiving… However we have a list of places we will call this morning and a fall back position at a Martin County Park in nearby Stuart Florida called Phipps Park. It is not the best site in the world but it available and the sites are large and far apart. They are also within walking distance to a federal park called the Lucie Locks.
We will call one park midway between here and Ft Myers on the south side of Lake Okeechobee and we have a couple of leads for sites near Ft Myers that we will call. We only need to find a spot for a week since we have the month of December booked at a park in Bonita Springs. So we are site less but not homeless however I am sure we will end up somewhere for the holiday.
This will be our first big holiday with no family around in a long, long time. It is going to be a bit weird but we will have to get used to it fast because we will be in the same predicament for Christmas as we have no immediate family in Florida.
We knew when we partook in this lifestyle that these holidays would be “different” so we plan to simply chalk this up as a new life experience but it sure beats working… and I am sure we will figure out how to make the best of it.
So our last few days in Hobe Sound Florida have seen us in a bit of a routine… We wake up and enjoy some freshly brewed coffee, lounge a bit and then we have breakfast. We lounge a bit more and catch up on reading the news and some blogs on the web. We do a few errands around the motorhome and then we settle in for lunch. After lunch we have been taking a drive such as to see the “haves” along Ocean Blvd. in Jupiter Florida and then we go to Hobe Park to the beach for some sun and fun… A relaxing and enjoyable routine.
Well time to sign off as it is nearing 8:00 am and time to call some parks to get a site for the holidays… we have to check out by 1:00 so we will know soon where we will be staying for Thanksgiving!
