Have you ever wanted to sell everything you own and just "take off?" Travel the country's back roads, paddle down a meandering stream, experience breath-taking mountain views, walk among 100-year old trees, and just marvel at America's beauty? That is the dream that my partner, Betsy, and I decided to make a reality. This blog describes our adventure. The food we eat, people we meet, sights we see, and the enjoyment we find in traveling.

Ah, the Beach

Of all the places we have traveled to there is no place where we have spent more time than in the Florida Panhandle.  Are you wondering why?  Take a look….

This is a place where the sunrises are as spectacular as the sunsets.

The sugar white sand is so fine that it squeaks under your feet and the water so clear that you can see you toes until the water laps over your head. 

Hey look, I found my paws!
047Our little winter paradise is called Santa Rosa Beach and includes unique coastal communities that are as laid back as the keys and as hip as South Beach.  Our rig will be parked at some of the best state parks we have found anywhere.  And within just a few days of being here we got reacquainted with friends from last year and feel like we are settled in.

So when you hear people complain about the wet, white stuff just know it is not coming from us.  

(Just for the record Spirit likes it here too.)



  1. The Panhandle is one of our favorite places, too. That sugar sand is just wonderful. Hopefully, we plan to hit the area in February. Fingers crossed!

    1. That would be great if you came by - we would love to meet you all.

  2. Your last picture of Spirit is exceptional - you should send it to one of the pet food producers; he's the quintessential Black Lab! Glad you're enjoying the panhandle, keep up the great pictures!

    1. Thanks for the compliment. Usually she is so busy chasing birds I just end up with a black spec in my photos.

  3. we loved our visit and are so grateful that you introduced us to the great beauty of the FL Panhandle. you and Betsy have created a wonderful RV life and community. we really enjoyed meeting some of your friends. 'til next year - or maybe Maine or VT?

    1. So glad you did. It is always a fun time when you visit.


We love hearing from you, so please drop us a comment
