Wow this two month stay is sure going by fast! I wondered how we would handle staying in the same spot for two months especially since it is in a location we have been before.. For the most part we have enjoyed this stay as it has allowed us to fall into sort of a routine much like we had when we were working stiffs.The difference being that included in this routine, is quality beach time…
Our favorite beach to visit is on Little Hickory Island. Nestled among the million dollar homes is this nice white sandy beach with 10 free parking access points along the road. The parking is very limited so a bit of luck is needed especially in January yet we have found that if we go a little after lunch we normally score a free parking spot.
Along this beach most often do a little fishing and Sharon relaxes with a book. After I fish a bit we meander along the shoreline for an extended stroll to check out the shells, the surf, the ever present dolphins and to watch the abundant pelicans diving in to the “all you can eat sushi bar” nailing baitfish on nearly every attack into the water. We find it is always fun to watch and admire the skill these birds posses in sighting and catching the bait fishes.
As January approaches the mid point we have planned a small road trip that will include a stop at the Tampa RV show. The Tampa RV Show is one that we have always wanted to attend so this year we will do just that. Unfortunately it is 150 miles from here but lucky for us as some of our Illinois RV’ing friends are staying in Bradenton and asked us to come for a visit and to spend the night. We decided that was a great idea allowing for not only the fun reunion time with these good friends but the opportunity for all of usl hit the RV show together on Thursday..
Sharon’s cousin who we visited near Detroit this summer is staying near Vero Beach and wants us to visit as well. So after the RV show we switch Florida coasts and visit him as his sister, another of Sharon’s cousins, flies in Thursday. We will stay Friday and Saturday and then amble our way back over Bonita Springs. On the trip back we will be checking out some of the interior Florida RV parks.. We are actually looking forward to this little Florida getaway and a break from our new Florida routine… And who knows, maybe we will even be able see some of you at the Tampa RV show on Thursday!!!
