On the Key RV Waterfront

It has been a hectic few days getting settled into our RV site again. The RV itself was easy:  park it, hook up the utilities. The rest has been work.

We went to the UPS store to pick up our mail.  There were three months worth of bank statements and a bag full of other assorted mail to go through.  That took hours. The laundry hamper was overflowing.  In the tiny RV washer/dryer, that meant one and a half days of washing and drying. Then I started reconciling financial statements.  Sometimes I really wish that I was not a Quicken junkie.

Andy has been doing the hard stuff outside.  We have a small shed for the patio furniture and grill. He set up a small table and chairs out back by the mangroves so we would have a place to eat outside.  Then he struggled to get the propane tank hooked up. He swept up a lot of debris from our “little slab of paradise”.  He had to repair the push-broom to finish the job.  I saw him messing with the bicycles too.  All that only took three Band-Aids.  He keeps Johnson & Johnson in business.

Finally, in the late afternoon, we took a walk to the ocean to sit and relax. I had not realized how beautiful a day it was, inside, with my face in the computer screen, most of the day.

Here’s another picture of the little lighthouse.

I noticed that the Century Plant is in bloom.

Here is a closeup look at the bloom.

There were at least a dozen more buds above the blooms.  They are almost as cool as the bloom itself.

Yes, it is good to be back home.

      I have loved my home on the water and now my home on wheels, but am really looking forward to a home with a bit more space!

      It is with the book designer. She is correcting the errors and typos I found the last time I read through it. I have not idea how long that will take. She’s had it for weeks. When she is done, I’ll get it back for one last look. Then it will be off to the printers. I got the impression that I would have books in about three weeks after that. We’ll believe it when we see it.

    Bet it is nice to be home! We just got home from the park ourselves today, there is a wildfire going on in the park and its getting bigger with the high winds! We are praying the predicted rain puts a stop to the fires! There was a big wildfire in our area that is almost contained now. It was scary, we came up and got a few things and were glad we were staying at Elkmont because the smoke was awful!

      I was wondering how the park is faring. It is hard to tell from the news/internet exactly where the fires are. It is scary. I can’t remember any wildfires up there before. It is hard to imagine with all the rain we get there in the summer, but we did see how dry it was when we were there in Sep/Oct. I read that there is a fire in Walland and hope it is not near any homes. You guys stay safe. I’ll pray for that promised rain.
