Our First Full Day




This is our first full night and day. We went out for the morning piddle break at 6.00am then tried to have quiet time for about an hour. Then I started to make coffee and looked out the window to see two beautiful creatures walking up the road. These are our prized Sandhill Cranes. They live together as a couple and just so graceful. What a way to start a day. Now I know why this is the life for us!!

Lola did call out to them but our insulation is amazing and they just kept on walking.

After coffee we walked to the dog park but it's so hot out today we came back quickly and rethought our outing to the dog beach in New Smyrna.

 
Don't laugh, I'm doing laundry for the first time in our washer/dryer.  I actually sat watching the sheets going around.   It's so easy keeping the RV clean. Vacuum and wash the floors and I'm done.  I'm excited because I'm not known for my organizational skills shall we say. The laundry may take hours to do but we're not going anywhere so...
 
 
We opened the awnings early to shield us from the sun today. It helps keep the inside cooler so we don't use too much electricity. We are spoiled right now with 50amp hookup but when we go boondocking  (no hookups) we will really have to conserve.  But the solitude and beauty will be worth it.
 
 

 
Ah yes, Sunday afternoon. All is well. Just keeping an eye out for afternoon storms, having ice coffee and reading the Country Coach bible. (still learning how everything works ,though I did get my first lesson this morning on emptying the tanks!!)
 
Have a joyful day!!!
 
Warmly,
 
Sheila

    1. Not yet Rachel. We plan on it though. Perfect for when we boondock. There is a man who travels around out west that installs them on your rig.
