Moving on – to Wildwood,FL

11/16/14 Sunday in Wildwood,FL (Alliance Coach and RV Sales-free)

On the road by 8:30. Woohoo, Florida here we come! One thing about Walkabout, getting hooked up and on the regular road is the easiest you can imagine. Hook up in your site because you’re in a pull through, then it’s a very short way down the gravel road to the street. You’re also close to the bathrooms and office, because its a rather small park. You also don’t need to leave a card of any sort. I didn’t mention before but it may be a grassy field (with gravel roads) but it’s surrounded by woods, nice trails and marshy pond.

Because it was Sunday morning we took I-95S to I-295W (Jacksonville Beltway). No problems, light traffic. Turned off at I-10 exit, then onto US 301S. We prefer the Interstates (non commuter time) because they don’t have stoplights/intersections and slowing speed limits. We could have turned west at Yulee onto A1A, then US 301 to avoid the Beltway, for those who don’t don’t like Interstate roads. The parts of US 301S that we were on were all 4 lane with ample space on the shoulder (plus grass) to turn out for a restroom break. Nice trip for fuel mileage: over 9 mpg.

Near our destination was Ocala country: horses!!

We arrived at 11:30, got set up and enjoyed our lunch.  Spent our afternoon looking at the coaches for sale right here at Alliance.  We both got excited about a 2013 Monaco Knight-great interior-the layout and the quality.  Unfortunately it was built by Navistar, so had a Navistar chassis and engine.  Haven’t heard good things about these.  Not in an RV.  Back to Miss Zanizabar to relax in our “back yard”.  This place has the best campground experience for a service department we’ve seen.  50 amp power and water at each paved site.  We were amazed at how warm it was – around 80 degrees.  Shorts for the first time in ages!!  Ah, Florida.  Although the 2nd cold front will be coming through Tuesday night we hear.

About Patricia Elser

I've always loved the loose, flowing, transparent look of watercolors, of Chinese paintings and their calligraphy, but alas, no watercolor classes were available when I was in school, so that interest remained buried until my children were grown. Even then, I was afraid that I couldn't really paint, so upon my sister's advice, I actually started to take classes. I signed up for every class available, determined to learn no matter how afraid I was. I came upon a teacher, Stan Miller, who inspired me, who opened the door to success in watercolor. I love to look at beautiful images. I want to capture them forever. All my life, photography was how I gathered images of the beauty I saw. Thanks to all that photography, I enjoy composing pictures, especially up close. Watercolors allow me to add more of me in their translation of that beauty. My paintings reflect my love for music and dance, with their rhythm and flow. I am fascinated by the play of light, so it appears in my pictures as drama for they are filled with darks and lights. Maybe it's the challenge, maybe it's the beauty, but now, when a work comes together, it fills my soul.
