We are at the beginning our first full year of fulltimming.  WOW!
The last six months (and a few days) went by so quickly and easily.
The last six months felt more like holidays then actually living fulltime. But we are getting there.
In 2010 we had no major problems with our equipment, on the financial side, every thing is still good.
So, here we go into 2011...

Saturday January 1st, 2011

We had the pleasure of having André and Giselle for dinner on New Years Day.
Another evening of fun with good company.

Sunday January 2, 2011

Easy day, other than it is Benoit's birthday.
Happy birthday Benoit!
23 years old and a full life in front of you...
We had to have a Tequila shot for Benoit's birthday!

We went out for dinner with André and Giselle to celebrate a friend's birthday.
Goodbye André and Giselle, we will miss you.
Thanks for everything!

Monday January 3, 2011

Moving day!  Largo, here we come.  Largo is located real close to Tampa.  This is close to where our friends Dave and Shelly have a condo.
Before we left Lake Worth, many of our new friends from the campground came to say: "Bon Voyage".  Thank's to all and it was a pleasure to meet all of you.  We are sure our path will cross some day.  I do not have any name here because not everybody wants their names on the web.
We know who you are and this is what counts.
Bye and thanks for your friendship.

On our way to Largo, we saw many lemon's fields.
Now, that's a lot of lemons.

It always brings a smile when you see a "living" advertisement on the side of the road.

Here is our new home for a month at Lee's travel park.
Nice campground.

Tuesday to Friday January 4th to the 7, 2011

We spent a lot of time with our friends Dave, Shelley and of course their two kids (Adults kids).
They are going back to Cold Lake Saturday morning.
Before they left, Shelley wanted some Sand Dollars for her shell collection.
So off we go to Fort De Soto  beaches hunting down sand dollars.
We had a good time!

A shell with something living inside...
(only the girls were interested!)

Here we go, solving the problems of the world...

What a beautiful morning at the beach.
Shelley with her treasures...

We went at Dave and Shelley's place for dinner almost every night.
They had to use the food they had before they left.
OK with us!

Dave, Shelley and the kids, it was a pleasure to meet up with you before you had to go back home.

Friday January 7, 2011 (Morning)

Twice a week the campground offers free breakfast to all campers.
This gives us a chance to mingle with other people from the campground.

After breakfast, a game of shuffleboard.
We learn that every campground has its own rules.
OK by us.
We meet very nice people here.

We have never seen a full wall slide out before.
This is BIG!

Saturday to Monday January 8 to the 10, 2011

Not much for the next few days, just taking it easy after the Holiday Season.
We spent some time at a super big Flea Market.

I went bike riding for about 17 km.

Sunday evening, in the club house, you can participate in the "Social Ice Cream" get together.
We were entertained by a senior's group playing Harmonicas.
Pretty good those young fellas...

Here is the oldest at 91.

Monday was a shopping day, nothing special.
Monday evening, they have poker at the club house and Michèle played, but was not lucky, she finished 3rd.
No money for her.

Tuesday January 11, 2011

A cold day for Florida, +11 C.
We decided to go for a bicycle ride on the Pinellas Trail.
This trail was build on an old railway.
Very nice place to ride bicycles.

You always get to see something different when you go for a walk or a bicycle ride..
We saw some grapefruit, oranges and even baby oranges...

The Pinellas Trail goes right in the city of Clearwater.
One of the few murals we saw.

A carpenter turtle?

As the Pinellas Trail goes in the city.  It also runs next to an active railroad track, which runs in the middle of the street.
Pretty special thing to see.

Tomorrow we are going to the Biggest RV Show in Florida.

Wednesday January 12, 2011

This is a very BIG RV show.  Only 1100 RV of every kind with over 350 boots for vender's.  We were busy, but we did not go in many RVs.  Mostly the one with a price tag of over $500,00.00.  A very nice day even with only a +11 C.

Michèle was very happy when she won two flashy rings...

Not to complain, but the weather here is the same as in Comox, BC. Where Jérémy lives.
Florida is the only state that did not have snow...

Thursday, Friday January 13 and 14, 2011

Still a cool day at +11C.  We stayed home and did nothing but reading, watching TV and some small shopping.
Thursday evening the campground had a complimentary Fish Fry, cooked by Newfoundlander's from the campground.
What a feast...

Friday it got a little warmer so we went to Home Depot for some small stuff.
Why do you think we took this photo?

A pretty red car between two Porsche!

Saturday and Sunday, January 15 and 16 2011

We spent the day reading, biking and having some nice meals.

Our bike ride took us in a mobile home park close to our campground.

I love this mail box.

See you next week...
