Falling Into Our Florida Winter Routine…


We have traveled down to Bonita Springs for about four or five winters and as a result have gotten to know many of the the winter snowbirds and residents of Imperial Bonita Estates. While the park may not have all the amenities we would prefer to have at a  winter park destination it has enough of them and more importantly having friends here always has us looking forward to reconnecting with them


Shortly after we arrived an impromptu happy hour occurred at one of our Canadian friends who had just arrived as well. Heather and Paul, whom we first met here, are snowbirds who often travel through Mexico but were spending the winter here this season and so many of our friends had gathered to welcome them back/ Oddly enough last season we first met Paul and Sheren who were in IBE for their first season and later we found out they had known our friends Paul and Heather for years… small world!


Winter season is also the time to do some of the annual chores which RV life requires as well as some maintenace and repairs. I also took advantage of the opportunity to give the RV a good cleaning and washed her up nicely. Later in the winter I will give her a good waxing to shine her up for the upcoming spring and summer travels.


So as we settle into a routine of living life, getting in our morning exercise, taking walks around the park, playing cornhole, happy hour with friends and watching the Imperial River for Manatees we have time to fully relax and enjoy life.. I love strolling along the Imperial River as it offers a nice respite to our routine of living in a 55 and older RV park as I ponder our next season’s travels.


With Christmas on the horizon we of course had to decorate the interior of our RV with those little touches which remind us of the holidays and all the joy they bring. We are looking forward to Christmas as Katie and her husband Brooks will be coming down to visit us for the holidays. We hope the advent of Christmas is bringing you joy as well…..

NOTE: We are now at our winter site for the season in Bonita Springs, Florida…
