Our friends Larry and Marilyn pulled out last Sunday heading for Disney in Orlando to meet up with their son, daughter in law and dear 3 yr old grandson, who flew in for a week. While we were sad to see them go~I'm happy to report a good time was definitely had by all.
The first of the week involved cleaning and maintenance items around our home on wheels and Rick did manage to get a round of golf in. And of course Happy Hours were still on the schedule.
Thursday we drove into Ft Myers and toured the Edison Ford estates. Very impressive to say the least.
|Edison Estate, he also built a house next door for his guests|
|Ford Winter Estate-Close friends they had a walk way between their properties|
|Royal Palm tree and it was massive Circumference 53" height 97' crown spread 26' it was a biggan|
|massive and gorgeous tree|
|Walkway between Edison main home and guest house|
|Beautiful massive banyan trees some branches grow horizontal|
|A verandah to wish for|
|Hows that for a toad|
|The roots grow right out of the ground|
Yesterday Rick golfed again, but didn't do well he is having a major problem with his sciatic nerve in his back..he thought golfing might work it out but that was not to be. Today he is pretty sore. He had a long shower, and some medication and is going to sit quiet for the rest of the afternoon.
I have been busy in the dark hours, making jewellery..who knew this would be so much fun. I've been making up some 'breast cancer' design bracelets. I had some requests here in the resort-of those sold I will donate a percentage to the Breast Cancer Association.
It is hard to believe that our winter is almost over. We plan to leave here the end of the month, stop for a visit with good friends in Lee Fl for a few days, then head on over to Hendersonville NC to visit my darling Aunt Kay. From there we will motor to New Bern NC to visit dear friends for a few days. Then head north..stopping in Dinwiddie Va for a day or two to visit an old friend.
I am anxious to get home and see all the kids, and look forward to visitors to our home this summer. Can hardly wait John and Brenda. Humm wondering how they are going to manage a visit without horses...do I need to maybe rent a couple and tie them out in our yard? Maybe I could take them down to Broad Leaf Farms not too far from us if they need a fix.
Today was a laze around day, although I did get the laundry all washed and filled my line and my neighbours. It is a warm hot day so I think its time to hit the pool.
Congratulations to Arlene (Leno) on the purchase of her new to her motorhome!!!! I'm thinking we will see a blog soon with all of this news...Can't wait to meet up with you on the road sometime Arlene. May you have many wonderful adventures.
Take care all and stay safe out there..thanks for stopping by.
