Largo, FL 2

85 degrees, low humidity and breezes from the Gulf of Mexico - are we in Heaven or what? We are camped only a few miles from the Gulf and it is breezy and comfortable all the time. Today we visited our daughter and her family who are vacationing in Indian Rocks Beach, near Clearwater. This is "between seasons" here and, although there are lots of people, not the jam that winter and summer have. Their condo is right on the beach and we watched the sun set into the water. We have only been gone for almost three weeks and already are running out of "oohs" and "aahs." The raw beauty of the Smokys, the peaceful, lush greens of the Peace River and the calming waves of the Gulf. We are looking for replacement words to describe the sights we have yet to see. The way that we are traveling now is so different from what we have done before. We are finally taking time to enjoy the journey and not warring so much about a destination. Tomorrow we take the Monty to a dealership near here to see if they can repair our crash damage. It is a dealership recommended by another MOC member so we should get good service.

The beautiful way you describe sunset on the Gulf sounds like memories of growing up on Lake Michigan! You're right, your journey is worthy of Oohs and Aahs at every turn. It's so good to hear all about your adventures!! We love you both!
