Friday night the weatherman on the Channel 6 news out of Orlando said that yesterday (Saturday) was probably going to be our last good day in terms of temperature before summer hits us hard. Usually, from mid-to-late May until November, the temperatures here on the Central Coast of Florida are in or near the 90s, […]

Neighbors I Never Knew

We live in a friendly little subdivision called Terra Mar Village on the Intracoastal Waterway, halfway between Daytona Beach and Cape Canaveral. While it’s not a 55+ community like so many here in Florida, and there are some families with children, most of the neighbors we’ve met are in the 50+ age range. Besides two […]

I know that I said in yesterday’s blog that I hoped to knock out a couple more chapters in my new Tinder Street book, but that didn’t happen. The weatherman said we are looking at the last few decent days we may be able to expect for a long time, with temperatures supposed to be […]

Our neighbor Jesse Bolton came over the other day and reconfigured some of the changes he made to the kayak trailer, lowering the front bar so that the kayaks sit fairly flat and are easier to load back in from the water. So Friday, Miss Terry and I decided we should give it a try […]

We love our little community of Terra Mar Village, here on the Intracoastal Waterway halfway between Cape Canaveral and Daytona Beach. It’s nothing fancy, but we have access to the water and amenities that include two swimming pools, a clubhouse, boat launch, and a 300-foot fishing pier. Not to mention a lot of nice neighbors. […]

We live on the central Florida coast, just about exactly halfway between Daytona Beach and Cape Canaveral. If you have been reading the blog for very long, you have seen our pictures of rocket launches that we take from our yard, or sometimes from our private fishing pier on the Intracoastal Waterway. I was never […]

Note: This is an updated repost of a blog from April, 2015 on a topic I still hear a lot about from new or wannabe be fulltimers. I get a lot of e-mails from people who are just getting into the fulltime RV lifestyle and have questions about everything from which state to chose as […]

Yesterday I crossed two things off of my bucket list at the same time. Don’t tell me I don’t know how to multitask! I’ve caught lots of fish in my time; from docks, from boats, from shore, and a few years ago on an RV trip to Atlantic City, North Carolina, from a pier in […]

Yes, More Potpourri

This is the fourth collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I really don’t have anything else to talk about today. In case you didn’t know, potpourri is defined as 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous […]
