Like last year once again our daughter Katie flew down to visit for the Christmas holidays. She really seems to like hanging out with us and enjoys the RV as much as we do. She is going to need this break as she left her job and is returning back to school in January to pursue her Doctorate of Physical Therapy.
It has been a bustle of activity since her arrival beginning with the weekly Cornhole (bean bag toss) tournament. Amazingly Katie and her partner came in second. Those college games must have kept her game in top form. Our new friends in the park embraced her just as warmly as they have us so we are certainly glad we chose this location.
We also introduced her to the local farmers market and flea market nearby. At the flea market, Katie and Sharon found a free side table they had to have for our outdoor area to hold our happy hour drinks and snacks. They were so happy with their find even though they ended up carrying it all the way home since they walked to the market rather than taking the car. I am not a shopper so I stayed home fixing some of the items on the to-do list we made.
We have a few more ideas for entertaining Katie while she is here as this will be her last big vacation for awhile since she is starting her doctorate in January. For now we are simply savoring the Florida sunshine and it’s near perfect weather.
Our Christmas shopping is about done and we look forward to preparing a nice dinner here at home with Katie. In looking ahead to the New Year we have begun shaping up a travel plan as I am sure not long after Katie leaves, I will be feeling the “hitch itch” and be ready to hit the road again soon…
