Florida Fun in Our New RV

Image
What a fun week I've had! We drove to Florida to pick up our new RV. Then we drove down to the Florida Keys and all of the way down to the southernmost point - something my husband and I had never done before. And something I had never seen before on a beach - an iguana. They run around wild on the Keys. Can you spot the iguana in the tree?


We stayed at a newer RV park on the Keys, Palms Keys Resort, in Key Largo that was really nice. Going for a swim and watching an iguana or two walk by - fun times!


The beach views were gorgeous on the drive down to Key West. The water was such a pretty shade of greenish-blue. We stopped at a couple of places and walked around Key West for hours. That walk included a stop for Key Lime Pie.



It was great to go back to the RV at night. Our new RV had some surprises for us, though. There was a hot day when I wondered if we'd ever get the air conditioner turned on. You have to turn off the generator first, or last, or... Oh, I don't remember…

They even told their friends and they came over, too. A friend let the music teachers in her music association know that we had a piano for sale. 2. We gave items away.  Sometimes you can match up friends with things you think they'd like.I donated my race medals at a local store. They'll be given to hospitalized children.Drop off items at a local charity. 3. We put stuff in the trash can and recycling bin. I didn't really need 20 w…
