Six months later…we got some FAMILY time!!!

Passing time still in Gulf Shores…no complaints, as this coastal life continues to grow on us. Some might say we’re just snowbirds now as seems if we’re not in the Midwest, we’re in southern AL running for the beach! Like gulls waiting for our next meal, this has worked for us right now. We missed…

Ten days into the New Year, 2015!

Because I’m happy Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof Because I’m happy……… Camp “Happy” Sands is part of the Gulf National Seashore in Perdido Key and made for a HAPPY day full of sunshine and cool temps in the 50s. The ole’ geezer pass passed us through free of charge…

Twas the night before Christmas!

We have continued life in Gulf Shores….gheez, almost time to spread out some more cash and take membership! It’s been a time to count down to the end of the year, try to keep up with family at home and their festivities, and recount our 2014! And trying to figure out what might be next!…

A Thief or two….(Alabama)

We just discovered out backpacks are GONE!  A few weeks back, Jerry’s Carhartt sweatshirt came up missing…called a few restaurants to make sure we hadn’t left it there.  Then to follow, a week or so later,  I said, “where is my red rain jacket?”  So we continued to try to figure out where we left…

ICED IN…(Alabama)

You know it’s bad when the Mobile Bay tunnel closes, all the bridges are closed, and everyone is encouraged to stay home.  Don’t imagine my new shoes from Amazon will arrive today! The freezing rain started yesterday before the lunch hour.  And I don’t know what wee hour it stopped but we woke to a…

First trip to an Estuary…(Alabama)

Days continue on the Gulf coast in Alabama…and off we went for another day of sightseeing. “Let’s take the back county roads west of Hwy 59 today!”  Riding along, taking in all the amazing horse farms, I spotted a sign, Weeks Bay Estuary. Now I admit, I had no clue what an estuary was.  Upon entering the visitor’s…

Happy New Year 2014

One year fades away and a new one rises!  Happy New Year to all!  It will soon be 2014 and what’s in store…the mystery will appear, come and go, and another year will be here. To think back to 2013, I ran through my collection of posts and am now reminded why I keep this journal…

Tis the season to REJOICE and be THANKFUL!

We left the weeks of whirlwind changes in a rig, direction of travel, and regrouping for holiday fun!  And what better place that the shorelines of the Mobile Bay and Gulf of Mexico! We’ve been lucky to have had pretty seasonal weather so far.  While a few nights we jumped into the low 30s, each…

A new beginning….thank you JOHNNY’s RV!

Where to start?? Over the last two weeks, we couldn’t ignore the tiny coziness of CozybeGone.  Dark nights came early, we retreated to our 96 sq ft, and days became entirely too short!  Six months in this Casita, we thought we were doing great! Discussion began…you think we should upsize?  And that leaves us where?  HERE!…

SNOWSTORM of the season!

March Madness can’t be taken lightly. This March socked us in yesterday with 14.5 inches of snow. Who’s happy – the farmers I’m sure. As you can see, doesn’t look like we’ll be going anywhere too soon with CozybeGone! Time to load up the gear and take a cruise in the 4×4!

BRRRRRRR – Close to ONE month until Groundhog’s Day!

What do you do on those long cold evenings…as I’ve been watching entirely too much television and surfing the net way too much.  There has been so much sickness, loss of family members, etc. since the first of the year.  The short days and blistery cold evenings just have me in a funk.  I need…
