We continue to adjust to a life away from full time RV travel that we enjoyed so much. That is not to say that we are not enjoying our new normal, for we are. Never the less, there is still some adjustments that need to be made. Since our last RV trip we have engaged in any number of activities for our new normal.
First and foremost, we have had lots of time to enjoy our granddaughter, Victoria. I suppose there is some downside to spending time with these small and energetic creatures, for me that is mostly realizing that I am getting old and it is hard to keep up with her! For the rest , there is lots of fun, like introducing her to Santa Claus, Halloween outings, getting her to wash my car. Perhaps the best of all is just hanging out with someone who finds everything new and interesting.
Then there is the true reminders that I am living in a sticks and bricks. Nothing says permanent more than having to put together a big grill that has a 25 year guarantee. If only, I could get the same warranty for myself. Another new project is making our own doggie treats without any additives, luckily Halley seems to enjoy them.
Part of our duties for the RV club we have recently joined, was to find an RV park for our monthly campout. We found a nice, new place in Freeport. It is close to the town of Seaside, which was one of the first towns built in the style of New Urbanism. Every home is colorful and there is a varied style to be seen from many different ages of design. What makes it most notable is the fact that the movie "The Truman Show" was set in the village. You can still recognize scenes from the movie from just walking around the town.
I have no intention of getting into politics, but being in one place allowed us to plan to attend the Romney/Ryan rally in Pensacola, FL yesterday. I will only say that this is the first political rally I have attended in 65 years!
Tomorrow we pull the RV out of storage for a week trip including the Good Sam rally at the Daytona Speedway.
