On the road again. We left Eufaula AL and headed towards Coden AL, near Dauphin Island and BAYOU LA BATRE. Anybody? Anybody? Looking forward to checking out the area…. Ready to roll. Joan Jett is always concerned she is not going with us so she stakes her claim in the front seat.
We had a really nice Christmas Day, and hope you all did as well. The weather was perfect, we had dinner with our camp neighbors, we were treated to a spectacular sunset, then finished off the evening watching It’s A Wonderful Life outside. Where it got very cold but nobody gave up!!🥶
Beautiful 72 degree, sunny and lazy day! Went to a candlelight service at church and it helped me not feel so sad about missing family and friends this Christmas….
The area was encased in a thick fog after that crazy rain. We went for a walk on the nature trail that surrounds the park. In actuality, it surrounds the dog park and the dump station, but for brief periods of time, you do feel like you’re deep in the woods!!
Wow! It rained non-stop here for 36 hours and 38 minutes!
Part of the plan for this trip is to get healthy, lose weight, lower and raise the numbers as needed, etc., so we brought our bicycles to assist. After our bacon and pancake breakfast, we pulled those babies out, checked the campground map for a route, and we took off….. Oh wait, he’s off.
Took the bike into town and it was a prefect day for a ride… cool enough for the leather but not so cold that it was unpleasant! I keep forgetting how close it is to Christmas until we stopped at Walmart! 😳
Landed safely in Eufaula AL at White Oak Creek – the BASS CAPITAL OF THE WORLD!!! 😁 Holy Cow what a beautiful spot! We look forward to checking out the area. We are here through Christmas….
Good morning from chilly Sparks GA. I thought we accidentally wandered north of the Mason Dixon line!! 🥶 Spent the night at Horse Creek Winery and did a wine tasting with Chelsea, who was a great host. Bought a few bottles of wine and a small gift so our free Harvest Host night 🙄😂👍
Spent most of the day prepping to leave. A crazy storm came through in the afternoon and as of 7am, it’s still raining! We head up into GA a bit then we are staying in AL til after Christmas. Then MS, LA, and will hang out in TX for a while after that..
Another foggy pasture morning, then one last ride and lunch in this beautiful part of Florida with friends. Pulling out Wednesday. 😁
Steve is back and our visit to Broken Board Ranch is coming to an end. For now. Looking forward to heading out and seeing the country but will miss so much about this area. For sure, my friend Pandora coming over to say hello every morning! 🐎
In IL, the girls and Steve and Grandma Gayle met up and had a quick visit. Meanwhile back at the ranch, I read a little bit while enjoying a sunny, breezy 73 degree day! In the evening we went to Danny and Viv’s HOG chapter Christmas party where in a departure from normal – IContinue reading “Dec 14, 2019”
Mt Dora hosts Art in the Alley once a month and Viv makes necklaces and earrings (which are beautiful, by the way) so we went there for the evening to sell her wares. I am in L♥️VE with this town!! Reminds me of the Hayward WI of my yoot!! Looking forward to Steve getting backContinue reading “Dec 13, 2019”
Not much news from here in FL. Took the opportunity to rearrange, relocate, and purge. Steve had lunch with his Mom. Driving the Jeep up north is probably not going to be a highlight of the trip for him, but getting that time with Ma was worth it, I’m sure. I’d drive 5000 miles inContinue reading “Dec 12, 2019”
Met a baby cow that was born when we got here (on the ranch of friends of Danny and Viv.) Went back to Juniper Spring. Made it to the big spring! Worth the walk.
Steve left to take the Jeep to Chicago. It was a long first day – traffic, rain, snow in the mountains. I didn’t have the heart to tell him it was 82 and sunny here… 🙏 for safe travels today.
Gorgeous day for a ride. Central Florida is just beautiful. Went to Juniper Springs in the Ocala National Forest and had just enough time there to see I want to go back for more! We didn’t get as far back on the trail to see the “big spring.” It was getting close to dusk andContinue reading “Dec 9, 2019”
Lazy day…. Went to a cowboy church which was really cute. What makes it a cowboy church was my question…. The chapel is actually in the stable of a working ranch, it has a cowboy theme, and the Pastor is a real cowboy. And had been struck by lightning 4 times! We enjoyed his messageContinue reading “Dec 8, 2019”
