Across the road is a nice development with sidewalks that lead to a park that goes around a lake which is perfect for walking and riding bikes. We were lucky to get a spot in this area, The Treasure Coast, is very popular being right on the coast and so far the weather has been great. I was put on a waiting list as folks book a year in advance! Our site is on a corner with a very large tree and we get afternoon sun near the front of the rig.
Mark has wanted a popup shelter for a while to park his bike under so we scored one at Sam's Club
with side curtains. Well we put it up, set up the chairs and tables and voila...a wonderful outside living room. The first week the evenings were chilly so we turned on our outside propane heater, dropped the side panels and we were toasty warm. Needless to say the bike is not parked under it!
We made friends with a couple from Quebec, Pierre and Ann, and they ride a motorcycle. So after Thanksgiving we hooked up with Bill (we met him at Fontaineblue State Park in New Orleans) who was spending the holiday with his sister in Jupiter and planned a ride. Pierre and Ann joined us for a nice ride of the area as Bill knew his way around. We rode the A1A down the coast to Juno Beach where we watched windsurfers play in the waves. Then we visited a Marina checking out the huge yachts seeing how the other half lives. Lunch was enjoyed in Jupiter by the water front.
Thanks Bill for a wonderful day!
Our next adventure took us to Daytona Beach for our nephew Randall's graduation from Palmer Chiropractic College. We stayed at the Dream Inn where Marks brother and wife (Lynn and Susan) were staying. It was a small hotel with that old time feel. We had a slider door that opened to a patio that looked right out to the beach, it doesn't get any better than that.
Daytona Beach is one of the last beaches that you can drive your car on which of course I had to do!
Annelien's parents Christo and Alida and brother Andre flew in from CA. It's hard to believe that it was two years ago we spent the holidays with them in CA. We all had a great time playing miniature golf in the afternoon. That night for dinner we went to a wonderful German restaurant complete with a band that provided great entertainment.
Lots of beer, sauerkraut and sausages for everyone!
The next day was the one Randall had been waiting for......Graduation!!!
This is a post that he made to Facebook that morning and it brought tears to everyone's eyes.
