We left our gate in April and went down to Mission, Texas for RV repairs which took longer than predicted or expected. We stayed with friends, Jan and Steve Spaulding, fellow gate guards, who were kind enough to let us stay in their Texas room. We went to the beach, visited the dentist in Mexico for some needed dental work, toured some interesting places, ate out at their favorite restaurants (because they of course know the bestest places to eat yummy food) and we had a lot of fun with Jan and Steve and were sad to leave, but anxious to visit the children and grandson in Sarasota, Florida.
We stayed in Sarasota for about 3 weeks. Of course we had a wonderful time with the family, went out boating and fishing and tried our luck at stand up paddle boarding for the first time ever (FUN!). Then up to Jacksonville, Florida to visit with my sister, niece and brother in law and more YUMMY food! Then the long drive up to Maine, but not without some troubles along the way, such as expensive truck repairs!
We had lots of adventures along the way and it was a trip we will not soon forget, including the stop over in New York City. But we finally made it to Bar Harbor, Maine the end of May.
We miss our gate guard friends and hope to be able to get on a gate when we return to Texas later this year. In the meantime, I won't be writing any gate guard related posts. Till then, . . . Happy Trails.
