Where We Been? Having a Great Time, that's what!

 I figured I'd better get back to posting, it's been a couple of months and people are starting to message us to see if we are OK.

We have never been better, in fact, this has been the best Winter of my life in Florida, we have been on adventures everyday, or working on our favorite leisure pastimes.

Here I am making some bead necklaces, it's a challenge doing crafts in an RV, but if you stay organized and don't get too carried away with supplies, you can get a lot done in a short time!

Here are the necklaces I have put together, I have been collecting glass trade beads for years and it was either get rid of them or do something with them, so I opted to make some necklaces for presents and such...these aren't anything fancy, but it helps pass the time when the weather isn't letting us play outside.

Also, I have made three hide dresses this Winter, two for myself and one for a friend, below you can see my latest creation, we like to work on the messy projects outside, as you can see Doyle in the back round working on his shell carving.

We set our 10X10 Cabella tent up outside under the awning for better shade control, we sure have had a really nice warm Winter to play outside!


I'm sorry if we made anyone worry, and I promise to get back to posting more often in the future.

It's been wonderful to fully life life like there is no tomorrow, after Doyle's surgery last year we didn't know if we were even going to have a future together, so we've been living each day like it was our last and having fun while we can.

We've been all over Florida beach combing, visiting museums and doing historical research.

Below is a picture we took at Talbot State Park, just outside of Jacksonville. It's remarkable how a beach that is just five minutes out of town can be so primitive and beautiful!

One of the reasons I stopped posting is that my loyal camera of over 8 years has finally started to get glichy and fail me here and there, I have a new camera all picked out but am waiting for it to go on sale before I pick it up...also this time of year we really have to stretch the finances to sit around, so no new camera and if you look closely at my photos you can see there are a bit shaky...hate to let a loyal friend go after all these years...but I want to take the best pictures I can!

Here is the "Ole Man" sitting at his desk, working on carving a shell piece, he has really become good at what he is doing and is getting great advice from some really special friends who actually are famous for their work.

So I guess I've blathered on enough to let you all know we are doing great, loving our life on the road and every day is a new adventure we can't wait to check out!

See you on the road!

I just stumbled onto your blog yesterday and I'm so glad I did.

My husband and I are just about to take the leap. It's pretty scary. We're still trying to figure out how to do it and not starve :).

What I finally told him last night is if we know it's what we want to do, we just jump off the cliff and work like hell to fly.

Lots to do before we fly but there's a contract on the house soooooooooooooo guess we better get flapping.
