Moving on – to Wildwood, FL!

11/20/14 Thursday in Wildwood, FL (Three Flags-TT/MA)

Moving on to Wildwood Fl you say? Aren’t you already there? Well we moved a whopping 3.7 miles down the same road!! That’s my favorite kind of move. Extremely short and simple.

We paid our bill to Alliance (for the entry door latch), then watched TV until 10 am when we left. Naturally we didn’t hook up the car. I got to drive behind the rig. Didn’t have to even turn on the GPS! Since we’d cased out the campground the day before, we had a good idea which spot we wanted and luckily it was still open.

We really like Three Flags. It has a wooded area for those who like that and an open area for us TV nuts. Nice asphalt roads to grassy pull through sites (in open area) with FHU, including strong 50 amps (free). Great Verizon and satellite TV receptions. Very helpful staff. Neat – you can’t tell where the annuals are (noted on the board in the office).

As we were setting up, we got to talking to Denise and John. They loved our coach, outside and inside. They are experts at negotiating and have lots of ideas to consider when purchasing an RV. They have sensitive noses, even determining if mold was growing in a rig. I asked them to “nose test” our rig. They concluded it smelled very clean; there were no mold, pet, smoke or strange smells. Yay! In excitement over the thought of trading in our oh-so-clean rig, we also cleaned up the shower and batteries.

At this point it was lunch time. I started our crock pot meal but needed a couple ingredients so John kindly dashed off to the grocery store only 3 miles away. Not a normal experience when camping. Grocery stores are often far away. Then we were did more RV research until we took a break and watched Gonzaga basketball. We finished off the evening with our Stroganoff and TV.

NOTE: Since are focusing on efforts to find “our” RV, I may have infrequent blog breaks due to that process or even because we’d found our new home.

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.
