Now in our 18th month of living full time in this RV, our Vilia, we have a rain day. We have had a few along the way but we have often commented on our good fortune with good weather for such a large part of our travels. We are in Sarasota for near a month. It rains very large raindrops in Florida. Because of the relative rarity of inclement weather over our last year and a half, it is nice to have the rain. It patters warmly on our RV roof. As I write this, the front is intensifying and wind is rippling the awning toppers that extend with our RV slideouts. If you have been in a tent in the wind, that’s the sound. We are in this amazingly large park called Sun-N-Fun. Name did not work today. There are hundreds and hundreds of RV’s.
Our full time RV experience is unique to many of our family and friends. Periodically we hear, “Oh yea, my neighbor’s aunt and uncle went full time for awhile”. But not too much. When you do it, there is no uniqueness, you are part of the crowd. And a good part of the crowd gathers here at Sun-N-Fun. There is a large pool complex with a three story water slide. There is petanque, the French version of bocce. There is “proper” lawn bowls done on a manicured lawn court. They have a woodworking shop, jewelry making, pickleball, and on and on. We are part of the active lifestyle community. Holy Sun City Batman, we are here!
But, it is on hold for today, our welcome rain day and the chance to do things like blog entries.
