Friday / Saturday Moving Time

Yesterday was a nice laid back day, we cleaned the MH, got the laundry all done up, and I made dry rub ribs, Potatoes, Veggies and rice for supper. I put the ribs in the crock pot early in the day and just let them cook all day. They were delicious. We took a few walks..had coffee outside with Debbie and Ken then watched some tv..

Today we headed over to Maxwells (they have the best fresh squeezed OJ) to pick up some of our favorite Orange Juice-and have that one last swirl vanilla/orange ice cream. Boy are we going to miss them. Maxwells has been in operation since 1935-we met the owner again and he gave us all a good lesson on orange growing, etc. This place is nothing could be hard to find if you don't know where your going..but boy it sure is famous. Anyone and everyone knows about Maxwells. They offer oranges at 4.95/bushel..juice and produce. Orange candy sticks, orange everything..its quite the country can find everything there from nuts to honey. We sat on the rockers on the porch to eat our ice cream.

After our visit to Maxwells we toured a golf course area in Bonnet about some nice homes in that gated community..This house was solar powered and solar heated..what a place it was. Gorgeous!! Deb Ken Rick and I of course fell in love with this house. It was their open house model home.

Heres a few pics of the inside..the Lani in the back even had a putting green in there...wonderful layout..but too big a stix and bricks for my taste at this time in our lives..Three bedrooms 3 bathrooms -but how could you not find it fun to entertain in this Lani?

Across from the cooking station was a bar and seating area

It was fun to tour tho..and was furnished beautifully...I can only imagine the cost and the fees to live there...I was happy to come back to our MH.

Upon returning home, we were visited by Jim and Dee they came down to say so long for now..thanks guys for the fun times during our stay here. We had coffee outside with Deb and Ken..we will miss all the great friends we met here but hopefully we will meet up again down the road.

Well this evening we started our tear down in preparation for tomorrow's travel, down into Palmdale. We have enjoyed our month here at Adalaide Shores RV Resort and all the friends we've made. I can't believe we've been here a month today!! Wow time sure flies in Florida.
So everyone be safe out there...our next post will be from our new park!!! Take care!

Home is where you park it
"May your day be filled with blessings like the sun that lights the sky~and may you always have the courage to spread your wings and fly"


  1. great looking house but a changing view out the windshield seems like a much better idea at the moment!!

  2. We know what you mean about how hard it is to leave friends !!
    The time is flying by here in Arizona as well ... lol
    Travel safe as always ... TnT

  3. I'd buy the house just for the Bar-b-que area! Not really, but I sure do like the looks of that grill. I bet it does cost a fortune in fees to live there. Fun to look though. Travel safe.

  4. Hmm, all it takes is money, honey! When you think about it, you can get that same view in different places and never get bored.

  5. Yes the time sure flies by every winter for us. We always enjoy visiting new place and meeting new people along the way. Travel safe!

  6. orange taffy.... mmmmmm...... Love that Lani!!!!
