Time for a new Coach…..

After leaving Destin, Fl we headed for Carrabelle, Fla.  There we stayed at Ho Hum RV Park and it was anything but Ho Hum.  Aside from having a gulf front site, watching dolphin from our front window,  and bears in the park at night, we had a 10 ft alligator swim up onto the beach.  The next morning he was discovered under one of the rigs which was exciting, well, not so much for that rig’s owner…

Our Site…



While there we also visited Wakulla Springs state park to take their nature boat ride


great ride watching gators, annahinga, and we were lucky enough to see several huge manatee




Then we moved on to Cedar Key, Fla

We only had one night to stay there but will definitely go back to the tiki bar



At that point we headed for Tampa….We had a plan.  We decided we wanted a newer, bigger coach so we were on our way to Lazydays Deaership .  Well things took a bit longer there that we had planned but we got our coach and had a great time during our 5 weeks there…

First off our friends George and Diane were in the area and we got to meet up for some Casino fun!!


Then we headed to st Petes Beach to visit with the Bridges



Good to see some Millbury faces!!!

We also got in a Detroit red wings playoff game


The Bolts arena is pretty amazing…

Lazyday’s Crown club pool was very nice …


Our time at Lazydays Tampa was fun, while waiting for our coach we met so many great couples and will be completely disappointed if we don’t see them somewhere down the road.

And yes, the new coach is fantastic


Our 2012 40 foot Tiffin Phaeton.  14k miles with 4 slides.  We love the extra room, the stackable washer and dryer, and the residential refrigerator.


no more Laundromats ..


and Dan’s outside tv




Well that got me caught up to May…..I’ll have to do another post on our trip up the east coast, I’ll just say tonight we sitting here (pictured below) on lake Norman in North Carolina and it’s pretty sweet. Thanks for following along…
