Sunday - Friday December 30 – January 6, 2012
are still getting accustomed to living in one place again. This is now the longest stay we have had yet
at 18 days. However, this is what we really
wanted to do when we started. We wanted
to stay in one place for a week to a month at a time. We wanted to settle in and feel like a local
in as many places as possible, really get a feel for the area and the people. That’s happening here now, we are starting to
feel like part of the park community and we can navigate a lot of the surrounding
area without the GPS. I do have to say
though that moving around is very addicting.
I’m surprised that I like the driving as much as I do.

We celebrated New Year’s Eve here at the park. Patty caught my cold so we didn't stay long after dinner and went back to the RV. Patty fell asleep in her recliner and I watched the tribute to Dick Clark on TV. It’s always sort of sad when an icon dies like Dick Clark. As you get older there are fewer and fewer icons around. I guess at some point we will be the icons. That reminds me of the line by Mick Jagger when asked why he doesn't stay home and become a pillar of society; He said “We checked around and couldn't find any communities still needing a pillar”. I did make it to midnight and the New Year 2013. I woke Patty up and gave her a kiss. Then it was off to bed for us.

We decided that we would go to our favorite beach here on Thursday. One of our new friends here, Rose, came along with us. It was a really great day. The temperature was 83 with just enough breeze to make it very comfortable. Even the water was nice at 75. We met up with some old friends from Sandy Hook as well as many friends we have come to know over the years here in Florida. We got back just at dark around 6 pm. We ended the day with a meal of crab legs again and some hot tub time before bed time.
