Burdine's :)

This afternoon Yvonne and Joe joined us for a boat ride in Boot Key Harbor. Of course, we had to take them to Burdine's for late lunch/dinner. Afterwards we took a ride around the bay side before we returned to the campground to take the boat out. It was a beautiful day of 80 and sunny, a little windy on the water. Breeze was better on the boat today, think she's getting used to it.

We enjoyed having dinner at the 7 Mile Grill (Salty's) with new friends we met here at the campgrounds.
This is Yvonne and Joe.  This is the place that we can walk to from the campground. We may one day bring the boat around the bay side and find this place.

Christmas Eve in 75'.......Priceless

Today Wayne finished setting up the site....Home Sweet Camping...

We had to put the boat in the water. It was a little windy, so just putted around Boot Key Harbor. Funny thing is, Breeze was a little scared. I forgot that we never had the power boat out this summer. This was her first powerboat ride. About 1/2 hour she was fine.

Ten miles from NC

We stopped last night approx 10pm. at an Cracker Barrel. We ate breakfast at 6am. Off we go again at 7am this morning.
Well, everyone should know where this is. Driving today is a bear...traffic and slow going. We finally stopped aprrox 9:30pm. We are about 150miles from Miami. It's alittle warmer tonight. In the 40's LOL.

Here we go again in Bum'sRest Poormans Motor Home

We left approx 2pm today. We are, of course, heading south. The camper is so packed, can't get one more thing into it or we wouldn't fit. LOL

We hooked the kido's in the back seat, each with their own blanket.

Driving home today...

So, we are up early and Bill took us to a little hole in the wall for breakfast, here in Georgia, which was very nice. We said our Goodbyes and so enjoyed ourselves. We will have to come again someday. We took off around 8am.

Stopped to fuel up and coffee for the ride........

Drive, Driving, Drives....Stopped at 1pm to refuel and PEE!

Drive, Driving, Drives...Stopped  at 7:30pm to refuel and PEE!

Drive, Driving, Drives and arrived home at 10:00PM. Funny, Sailor knows where he is. LOL...
Moved the car out of the driveway and just pulled the whole rig and boat up the side of the house. Wayne turned the heat on in the camper for the night. Just unload a few things to go into the house.

I hope everyone enjoyed the blog, I try to make it interesting, anyway......

So, till next trip...Bum'sRest Poor Mans Motor Home signing off :) :)

Savannah Ga visiting Wayne's friend Bill

We left today at 6:15am in the dark. We made real good time getting here at Bill's house. His wife Peggy is visiting girlfriends in Punta Gorda. Funny, that's where we just left. We arrived here at 2:30pm. Bill has a German Shepperd named Zeb and 120 lbs.

Nice big dog. Sailor and him were good, but Zeb is so big we were afraid he would hurt Sailor by just playing.
Wayne and Bill

Bill and Zeb

We went to dinner at a place called Cheeders, it's like a Outback back home. It was very good. Came back to the house and Bill let me online to Skype WayneO, Lila. We are also looking at TV.  LOL
We plan to have breakfast tomorrow and leave here early. Thanks for your hospitality Bill. Sorry we missed Peggy. :)

Packing up....

Today we put the camper back onto the truck. I did the laundry and came up here to the library  to post on the blog. So, if you don't here from us, means I don't have wifi :( I'll keep trying :)

Last boat ride before going home..........

This is the ramp where we put in Bum'sRush today, by Gasparilla Island. The little, I mean little marina is Eldgers. $5.35 to use the ramp.
Going out into the harbor.
We took an 10 mile run by Gasparilla Island over to Cayo Costa State Park. We have been here back in 2006 anchored in the harbor in Bum'sRest. You can see sailboats in the background.
The park rangers drive you over to the beach side (Gulf). I walked out to take a picture, Sailor is not allowed on the beaches. It is so pretty here. The ranges come back and picked us up at 4pm. to the bay side to the docks.
On the way back, Sailor is in "Flipper Alert". We did see about 8 of them.
The last ride in Bum'sRush till when????? Oh Boy....  Doesn't Wayne look happy...LOL
Looking back into the little harbor looking at the marina.
Getting ready for the ride back to camp.
He was actually being good. LOL  Anyway, he was so tired, he crashed as soon as he got into the truck for the ride home. Too funny.
I took this as we were going over the bridge into Punta Gorda. Wow.

After Wayne got the boat into the site and ran water through the engine, we were set to go out to dinner. He had found this Peace River Seafood Restaurant within 10 minutes from here. Sailor was welcome on the deck. We ate shrimp and crab cakes.  When we came back we walked around the RV park.

Took a ride...

Today we looked at one of the park models here that someone is selling. Just getting some ideas. We decided we are both over this place. So...... We drove over to the Fisherman's Wharf an had lunch at Harpoon Harry's, which Sailor was welcomed. It was nice out on the deck next to the water.

We took a ride about 15 miles from here to Gasparilla Island. We had to pay a $5.00 toll to go on the Island. The water here looks nice. Beautiful homes here and beaches and it looks very pricey for us Bum's. LOL

We are planning to take the boat there tomorrow. There is a ramp/parking before the toll road. Still have to pay for parking. Wayne has checked out his GPS of the area. An 10 mile run one way to Cayo Costa State Park. We have been there with the sailboat anchored overnight before going to Punta Gorda.  Really a pretty place.

Here are pictures of today at Gasparilla Island.
This at the end of the Island.

Looking down one of the beaches.

These beautiful trees made a tunnel on one of the side roads.

Looking  back at it after we drove through.

Dinner at Ralph and Betts..

Slept in today an then I made Eggs and bacon, potatoes and toast. Early afternoon, Tom and Elle came over from their boat. Tom has his car. They visited us for a little bit. They plan to sail over to the Bahamas soon.

We went over to Ralph and Betts for dinner. She made pot roast, the whole 9 yards. SOOOOO GOOOOD!!!!.  Afterwards we played dominoes. Six's, they had to teach us, never played before. It was fun times.

Thanks you guys, had a wonderful time with you. Always do. :) See you in the spring.

Jan 29, 2012

Today we got up early and we had to put the camper onto the truck and hook the boat too. We took off about 9am for Punta Gorda. We got here approx noon. Wayne wanted to check out Alligator Park,  a 55 an over. It's OK, I like the newer homes and of course not the older ones. You can put your camper/trailer on a lot also, which isn't to bad. But, Marathon????? Something about that place. Like blue water and lots of palm trees. I think Wayne spoiled me.  LOL

Just heated up leftovers from the other night in the oven. Tasted so good. Now we are going to take Sailor for a walkie. Already seen a few dachshunds here. LOL.

No free wifi here, had to buy 3days for $10.00. No cable TV either. What gives...
