Relaxed

Thursday January 31. 2008

The last time I heard from Dani she mentioned that she was glad that Dan was relaxing because he seemed pretty stressed and tired the last time she saw him. So Dani, here he is in a pretty relaxed state. We were in St Augustine again earlier this week. Bruce went over to check out the fort and the rest of us went wandering. Every time Luci and I saw a shop or a point of interest Dan would just tell us to carry on and he would just relax on the bench... so here he is relaxing on various benches.



We also got to see flowers on this tree, whatever it is... and lets face it... when you live in Ontario, flowers in January are a treat no matter what kind of flowers they are..if I even knew.
Today we walked up the 203 steps of the Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse. There will be pictures later...
Normally we like RV camping over condos because we meet more people and get to know some interesting characters. However today we broke out of the condo mold and met our neighbours on either side. The 6 of us sat out on the common side balcony drinking wine and beer and having a good time. B & L joined us later and we all had a lot of fun. We have managed to organize a Super Bowl party next door...they have a big screen... and I think it will be a blast. 4 Canadians from Ontario and 4 Americans from Minn and Mass (cause I can't spell the full state names... I have been drinking beer and wine, after all) ... anyway...it should be fun..almost like RVing.
It is so cool to meet people from all over the States and hear other points of view and stories. One of the guys used to work for Green Giant. He told about a high powered employee who asked in all seriousness..."What do you do with a raw potato?"...now everyone thought that was pretty funny but really who has time to worry about raw potatoes when there are more interesting things to do? However given that she worked for Green Giant , maybe she could have shown a little more discretion...
No matter...today was one of the best of the holiday and I think it was because it was more like RVing than condoing....
I can't believe this because I was just here blogging when Luci called the guys out to the private balcony to see the Direct TV blimp. They scared it away by mooning it. Luci, unfortunately, got a picture (not of the blimp) but I refuse to post it. If you are really desperate, e-mail Bruce and he may embarass himself and Dan by e-mailing you copy! ( fulfordb@sympatico.ca) I am willing to give a 10% discount at Knowledge and Needles to anyone who is foolish enough to want this photo.

ST.AUGUSTINE!!!! I love it and I recognize the places in the pictures especially the white wall where Dan is sitting is at the beginning of Old Town....ahhh...went there each spring break from the time I was 11 until I was 18. Love it! We always stayed on Crescent Beach. My twins were conceived in St. Augustine (sorry...too much info?!) LOL! Of course that was when I was all married and 29 y.o.
:)(not when I was 11-18...LOL!)

Sounds like you are having a great time. I envy you - up to our you know what in snow today and it has now turned to freezing rain. I just love living in Canada. lol I am going to start a new project shortly, so I emailed Bruce for the photo - can always use a discount. News for the week - I am going to be a great (yikes) grandmother, so I have to start something for the new arrival. Enjoy the super bowl party - sounds like it will be a blast.

Just got the infamous cows frames and they look lovely. I think I will keep custody of them and Donna can come and visit them occasionally.

Glad to see you are both relaxing and having a super time. I've never been to that area of Florida. My folks always took us to the Ft Lauderdale area. I'm hoping to visit my Mom where she rents in Ft Myers in late March.
