Sunny Day in Paradise!

Oh, I am here to tell you that the sky is definitely bluer in Florida. All their palm trees and white clouds just reinforce the idea that you are in paradise. We also happen to be in the  Bread of Ormond Beach, FL.

We “unplugged” the RV to come to the local Walmart. When you are dumping the tanks in the RV, Florida does not use the screw-in adapters for your hoses so you have to buy this “donut”  to squeeze into the pipe. Well, unfortunately, Bob left his for some lucky person when we were at the Manatees SP. So, we had to go buy a new one. Bob loves Home Depot, Lowes and Walmart – the RVers friend! We stocked up on hoses, clamps, bleach and groceries. Rita has me looking for a hoodie that is lightweight and she can take to Israel. I don’t mind doing a couple of errands since we have been stationary most days.

We found a post office – Melissa and Kevin Smiley’s birthdays are coming up! For a time, there has been no obvious mailboxes or post offices.

After Panera, we are going to Catherine’s (for Rita) and then we will find the camp store, boat launch and nature trail at Tomoka State Park where Native Americans once lived. The manatees seem to be everywhere in Florida. Some on our bus tour even saw one at the Kennedy Space Center in one of the tributaries from the ocean.

Back to the Kennedy Space Center. I had already tagged a lot of pictures for you. Please check them out. You can also visit my website for lots and lots of pictures of everwhere we’ve been. Have a great day!
