Farewell Michigan.
Boo likes this traveling lifestyle. 

I promised Dick we could leave as soon after Christmas, weather and road conditions permitting. On the 26th we started the dreaded job of loading the motorhome in the snow and cold and winterized and locked up the house. We stayed in the motorhome that night and headed south at daybreak on the 27th. The first night out we stayed at the Kokomo, IN Walmart and then the next day on to the Bowling Green, KY Camping World where we celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary with pizza and a movie in the motorhome. If we were still home we would have gone out to eat at a nice restaurant, but just being together heading for Florida was celebration enough. The highways were busy with other migrating Snowbirds heading south after the holidays. By the third night we made it to St. Joseph Peninsula State Park, our favorite state park in the Florida Panhandle. Dick has been singing Zac Brown’s song “I’ve got my toes in the water, my ass in the sand, not a care in the world, a beer in my hand. Life is good today.” The last part of the song he has right but I still haven’t seen his toes and ass anywhere near the water. It’s not THAT warm down here. It’s averaged mid-50‘s most of the time. A whole lot better than the freezing temperatures in Michigan and having to shovel snow. Today we are soaking up the sun in the 60's our last day at St. Joseph S.P. before beginning our trip west to New Orleans. Dick left for the day to hike along the beach in training for his long distance hike on the AZT. I'm enjoying some alone time. Life is good.

A great camping spot

The only time Funny Face has any peace.
