A Sailin' We Will Go!

Thursday, 11 Apr 2019 | Views [36]

YOU MUST THINK US TERRIBLY SPOILED — dilettantes, perhaps.  Maybe so, but life is so short and let’s face it, you are dead for so long.  So we are off again, this time on a 24-night South Pacific cruise from Auckland NZ to San ... Read more >

Hope Springs Eternal

Tuesday, 9 Apr 2019 | Views [40]

PECAN GROVE RV IN LAKE VILLAGE, ARKANSAS wasn’t at all like what we had hoped.  We had planned to stay two nights but it was raining so hard we could barely tell the Lake from the Village.  So after hooking up the water, sewer and electric ... Read more >

Our Life on the Mississippi

Saturday, 6 Apr 2019 | Views [34]

MOST OF THE RIVERBOATS ARE GONE NOW, but would-be riverboat gamblers have many options along the Mississippi.  We set up camp at the Ameristar Casino’s RV park, just across the road from Ole Man River in Vicksburg MS.  The big draw for ... Read more >

Play Ball!

Monday, 1 Apr 2019 | Views [47]

OUR FIRST STOP WHEN WE RETURNED TO THE US (after doing several loads of laundry) was to a ballgame — beisbol in Miami.  This is the longest we've ever come for a game, four-hours driving each way.  Marlins Park is beautiful with the ... Read more >

Old Friends in Florida

Friday, 1 Mar 2019 | Views [47]

ROD AND LOIS ARE OLD FRIENDS WHO HAVE appeared in these musings before.  They split the year between their beach house in NJ and their place in Rockledge FL.  We missed them on the Atlantic coast of Florida in November but had a chance to ... Read more >

Happy Birthday to My Fair Lady

Tuesday, 19 Feb 2019 | Views [42]

MY FAIR LADY, THE MOVIE, IS 55 YEARS OLD THIS YEAR.  For Connie’s — my own fair lady — birthday today (and, no, I wouldn't dare tell which one) we went to see Audrey and Rex on the big screen, one of those Turner Classics shown ... Read more >

Cruise Recap

Saturday, 16 Feb 2019 | Views [30]

WE’VE BEEN BACK STATESIDE FOR A WHILE now and easily slipped into our old routine.  Despite the tasty and plentiful food on the cruise, neither of us gained a pound.  Besides our birding hikes and forays around ports-of-call, Connie ... Read more >

Up In The Air

Thursday, 24 Jan 2019 | Views [30]

THE TRIP HASN’T ACTUALLY STARTED and already I have something to report.  JetBlue has a ticketing option that includes checked bags — for a fee, of course.  And I believe it comes complete with TSA pre-check which avoids the general ... Read more >

Cruisin' Again

Tuesday, 22 Jan 2019 | Views [70]

I CAN’T FOR THE LIFE OF ME REMEMBER WHERE IT CAME FROM — a travel poster for Barbados that adorned my Rutgers dorm room back in ’65.  I don't know what it was that attracted me — wasn't even sure where Barbados was —... Read more >

A Day At The Beach

Saturday, 12 Jan 2019 | Views [70]

THERE IS SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE AT THE BEACH.  And the Fort Myers area has a number of beaches to choose from.  The most costly are, appropriately, located on Sanibel Island.  Beach access is actually free but a combination of the $6 ... Read more >

The Same Old Song

Sunday, 6 Jan 2019 | Views [66]

EXCEPT TO THOSE WHO ARE WORKING WITHOUT PAY, the government shutdown is hardly noticeable here in Fort Myers.  It’s not like much work has been getting done recently anyway.  The Ding Darling National Wildlife Reserve on Sanibel Island, ... Read more >

It Was A(nother) Very Good Year

Tuesday, 1 Jan 2019 | Views [89]

THE HOLIDAYS PASSED WITHOUT MUCH FANFARE.  And nary a flake of snow.  Except for a few golf carts decked out in lights blaring carols and some half-hearted fireworks, Christmas and New Year weren’t much different than any other day in ... Read more >

Audubon Christmas Bird Count

Saturday, 15 Dec 2018 | Views [68]

IF IT SEEMS LIKE WE ARE REPRISING the Winter of ’16, not only have you been following Vagabonds, you’ve been paying attention!  So it won’t come as a surprise that we are in Naples again.  We remember so much we could probably ... Read more >

Florida's East Coast

Saturday, 24 Nov 2018 | Views [47]

WE REMEMBERED NORTH BEACH RV RESORT in St. Augustine as one of our favorites.  The sites are canopied by live oaks and it sits right across from the beach.  It also gave us a chance to visit my sister again.  Who knows at my age, when ... Read more >

Florida Bound

Monday, 29 Oct 2018 | Views [49]

IT’S A LONG WAY FROM THE PLAINS OF THE SERENGETI to Plains, Georgia.  Heck, it took 35 hours just to get to Atlanta!  The RV was waiting for us at Carole’s farm, just as we left it, so after doing a couple of loads of laundry and ... Read more >
