Florida La La Land

Okay…enough of this laying around the pool, basking in the sun of perfect Florida days…get to blogging!!

We’ve been here two weeks come Monday and so far have been to a cocktail party at the clubhouse, a welcome back reception for us hosted by our next door neighbors Bill and Joanna:

Left to right - Marge, our hostess Joanna and Ellie (who lives in Pittstown!!). You can see our coach over the top of the hedge behind the gals.

Chris and host Bill behind the bar.

Super Bowl at Charlotte and Michael's place down the street, a more than wonderful dinner at next door neighbors Jenny and Paul's the first night we arrived and we have hosted two dinner parties at the coach.

WHEW! No wonder I’m tired!

We drove the l-o-n-g way down to Florida this trip. That’s go west on I-78 to I-81 south, eventually hooking up with I-95 in North Carolina. This route may add a few miles to the trip, but it is a beautiful, easy drive for us. All through Virginia we paralleled the Blue Ridge Mountains - gorgeous. Of course, one huge advantage of this route is it allows us to avoid Baltimore and Washington DC on I-95.

If you are wondering how Remy manages the rigors of long days in the coach, I offer you this…

Sleeping peacefully between the driver and co-pilot seats.
He likes to keep an eye on us.

Well, I have to sign off for now...we have to get over the Bill and Ann's for drinks. Can't be late...
