Winter 2016 Port St Lucie FL

Our winter was spent in Port St Lucie FL at the same park as the winter before.  This winter was a wet and windy one, we were mildewing!  If I could find that guy named El Nino I would shoot him.  Anyway, our friends Linda and Allen Pencek at the park are bowlers and this year we bought our own balls and shoes.  We use to bowl on a league when we were first dating.  When Mark had some free time we went bowling and plan on bowling with them in April 2017 at the nationals in Las Vegas.  I joined the Rock and Gem Club taking 3 classes in silversmithing during Jan & Feb.  I learned so much from these friendly folks and will seek out more clubs out west.
                                              These are some of the pieces that I created.

I also did some art shows this winter.

Our friends Karen and Stuart came to visit for a few days and we had a great time.  

After lunch we took them to Sailfish Brewery then went bowling.
Thanks for visiting and you all are welcome anytime!


We have passed Yee Haw Junction several times but never were able to stop until this winter.

The Desert Inn was founded as a trading post in the late 1880s. The inn is located on Hwy 60 in Osceola county, really in the middle of nowhere.  This place is a step back in time and worth visiting.


Mark joined the Elks Lodge last winter and decided to volunteer his Tuesday mornings serving up tasty Ruben sandwiches. 

As always when Mark opens OnSite Mobile RV Repair he is busy day and night.  This year was no different but he loves to help people in need. 
This winter we stayed til the end of March actually staying a couple of days into April letting the most of the north bound folks get on road before we headed to Brandon FL.  We stayed at the Elks Lodge in Brandon which is south of Tampa (just another benefit of being an Elk) as I was flying home to Wilmington for Peep Week.

  Before I left my college buddy Mary Ann came to visit me.


Peep Week with my Sistahs as always was a great time!
  Love my Sistahs.

Sistah Gini (miss her everyday), her daughter Blair and her new baby came to visit us.

I swear when I looked into Blakley's eyes I was looking at Gini.


I spent some time with my grandson Reed, he is getting so big!

And we have a new addition to the family!

Upon my return to Florida we head out to the great west!

Thanks for following our travels.
