Week Eighteen


Seffner (Tampa), FL


If you are one of our friends with a motor home or travel trailer, attending a rally at Lazydays Rally Park is a must.  Catered meals, great entertainment and lots of new friends!   We had a great time “kicking tires” and wandering through the new coaches.  Life is good in sunny, 75° weather!

Next Stop:  Vero Beach, FL


We left Lazydays on Thursday and drove east headed to Vero Beach on the Atlantic coast of Florida.  We couldn’t leave Florida without stopping in to visit with Bob and Janice.    These are the folks responsible for getting us hooked on the motor homing lifestyle. 


Good food, good drinks and GREAT Friends. . .


The weather was beautiful and it was great to be “on the road” again and visiting old friends.  We used this time in coastal Florida (Sebastian to Vero Beach) to check out housing and communities. 


We drove down the coast to a small waterway and saw our first manatee.  They swim just below the surface and all you can generally see is a shadow in the water and an occasion nose poking out of the water.   The Blue Heron was casually “fishing” along the shore not far from the Manatee.
