11/27/14 Thursday in Wildwood,FL (Three Flags-TT/MA)
Such a glorious sunny day. It’s so easy to feel thankful on a day like this – for our family, friends, health, and this life on the road. The hardest part of this life is not being near family for the holidays. We plan to be in Spokane July 2015, so we’ll be spending our family time in the summers instead of the wintertime. It’s that spending time that counts in the end.
Sleep-in, lazy morning as I made our cranberry salad for the campground potluck at 1 pm.
I got a swift reminder of something to be thankful for: eyesight! As I stood up (before our potluck), the lens fell out of my glasses. The plastic line that holds it in had broken. Hmm. It has been almost 2 years since my last prescription, about 4 years since I got new glasses. Besides eyesight, I am really thankful for having a spare pair of old glasses. I am REALLY nearsighted. May not be typing much for the blog until this is resolved.
Three Flags sponsored a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner, providing the turkey, potatoes and gravy while we all brought a side dish or desert. What a large group and what a spread!!! We had a great time, meeting new people and visiting with friends. For our afternoon we relaxed at our coach, then had a late and light supper. Life is good.
Here is a glimpse of the pond created by our 6 inches of rain.
