It has been a super long time since my last blog post! Somehow we ended up with another GB drought. Not sure where it all went, although I do have Windows 10 on my computer which may have been updated, plus I had to download an update for a program I have on my computer. All of a sudden we got the notice from Verizon that we were at 75% with about 2 weeks left to our month. So we have been nursing it along since then. We figure we spend enough on our internet already without spending another fifteen bucks for one measly GB. So now we are in our new month, and here I am!
This year is the first time that we have spent four months in one place down in Florida, and we have been enjoying ourselves. We basically decided to stay put since we are going on a cruise next month, but we weren’t sure whether we would get tired of being here for the whole winter. We’ve had a good time though, and like this park and the people so much that we have already signed up to come back here again next year.
So what have we been up to? Well, for the most part we’ve just been enjoying ourselves with normal everyday activities. We go for a walk everyday, and we’ve also been doing some running. Next week we start a training program for a half marathon (13.1 miles) that we’ve signed up for in June.
I saw this local resident one day when I was out for a walk.
Mike and Terri stopped by the park for a few days, and we enjoyed a lunch out at a local highlight – Jacaranda Hotel and Restaurant – with Jim and Dee.
Two or three times a week we spend the evening over in the clubhouse playing cards. We’ve gotten to know some great people and enjoy a lot of laughs while we’re playing.
We enjoyed a nice walk on Anclote Island and had a great time visiting, but unfortunately had no dolphin encounters.
It’s been a great few months down here in Florida and I just can’t believe that we are only three weeks away from our cruise. My sister and her family will be here for a few days before the cruise and I am really looking forward to seeing them!
