Magic Of Lights at Homestead-Miami Speedway

Earlier this week... Nikki and Misael took me to the Magic of Lights attraction at the Homestead-Miami Speedway in Homestead FL. Magic of Lights is a drive-thru Holiday lights experience.

North East Florida Coastal Sunrise Adventures

In early November, when the clocks were turned back an hour for Daylight Savings Time, I was in the Central Time Zone. A couple weeks later, I entered the Eastern Time Zone and the clocks moved forward an hour - which basically put me back at square one. I'm blaming the time changes but, for… Continue reading North East Florida Coastal Sunrise Adventures

I arrived in St Augustine FL on November 29. I'm staying at Stagecoach RV Park - one of several favorite campgrounds in the St Augustine area. Finally Relaxing!?!

In the past, when… Continue reading Christmas Lights – Cookie’s Final Resting Place – Homestead FL

Reminiscing About The Florida Sunrise

It's dreary outside, my work is done for the day and I sit here thinking about all the sunrises I experienced when I was on the road.  My bed (in the van) is across the back. Some mornings I'd roll over in bed, open the curtains and watch the sun rise. It amazed me that… Continue reading Reminiscing About The Florida Sunrise

Florida Keys Day Trip – The Aftermath of Hurricane Irma

This will be my third season in south Florida and the Florida Keys. My daughter (Nikki) lives in south Miami-Dade county and I visit her for a brief time during the winter when the weather is more tolerable. I sleep in my van no matter who I’m visiting. I don’t have air conditioning (other than… Continue reading Florida Keys Day Trip – The Aftermath of Hurricane Irma
