Weekly Wanderings #43 – Ft. Myers

When I last left you we were headed to Orlando for a Freightliner appointment. That appointment was for a 2-3 hour service beginning at 9 a.m. We left at 4:30! The bright spot of our day was finding an amazing barbecue place for lunch, but other than that it pretty much sucks to be at the mercy of a mechanic. Leaving at the time we did put us right in the middle of commute traffic as we … [Read more...]

5 Places to Eat Oysters in San Francisco

It's oyster season in San Francisco! And, along with the dungeness crab season that comes later in November, it is one of my favorite times of year in the Bay Area! San Francisco is lucky to have oysters all year round, but at this time of year there are far more varieties to choose from. I wanted to share my favorites so here are 5 places to eat oysters in San Francisco. And maybe, just maybe, … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #42 – On the Road in Florida

We left (ran actually from) Red Bay on Saturday. By all rights we should had stayed a few more days, but we couldn't take it anymore and the remaining things we wanted fixed can wait.  Because we needed to be in Orlando on Friday (for our engine to be serviced - getting an appointment was an ordeal in itself ) we decided to take the southern coast route.  A night in Mobile (Alabama), three … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #41 – Red Bay

Our third week in Red Bay.  And the last. We should be staying longer, but if we did we would lose our minds. So we're giving up some minor items we had on our wishlist and one item that can be done by a dealer.  Anything to get out of here. I am a reformed yeller, I gave that up in my early thirties. But like any bad behavior sometimes you can be placed into an environment where that little … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #40 – Red Bay

We completed our second week in Red Bay. Red Bay is in a very rural part of Alabama, right on the Mississippi border.  There is not a lot to do and we are basically sitting on an old airstrip that has been converted to a "campground" for RV's waiting for repairs.  There are 93 spots for RV's and at the moment the grounds are nearly full. October is a very busy month for them. Without (working) … [Read more...]

Currently

Currently | 10.18.16 Watching | Old movies > Our wifi is practically non-existent at the moment, so streaming isn't possible, leaving us with our own library of movies we have on a hard drive.  We have over thousand movies, but they all begin to look the same after awhile and we are looking forward to getting to an RV park that has decent wifi. Reading | Scarlett by Alexandra … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #39 – Red Bay

We made it to Red Bay where we will be here a few weeks for RV repairs. Jessica passed away this week, so I know you will understand if I am unable to write more in this edition. Current location: Allegro Campground, Red Bay, Alabama. Photo credit: RV Wanderlust Save … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #38 – On the Road!

On our last night in Yellowtone we were clouded out for star photography so we decided to do one last tour of Lake Yellowstone and find some place to have our dinner by sunset.  On the way to the lake we came upon a bear jam in Hayden Valley, something we had not seen the whole three weeks we were in the park. Boy, were we in for a treat!  A mama grizzly and her two cubs! They are so beautiful … [Read more...]

Glacier National Park

I have been struggling with writing this post. The whole time we were in Glacier, for eleven days, I pondered about what to say about Glacier National Park. Several people I know, friends and family, who have visited this park say it's their favorite. I can imagine that during the summer the scenery must be stunning. However, for our trip I guess we had just too much weather. Just about every … [Read more...]
