Welcome to the travels of Doug and Nada. We love the Lord and are traveling full-time in our motorhome with our German Shepherd, Homer. Homer is the star attraction wherever we stop and he gets us talking and sharing with many people. DON'T FORGET: YOU CAN ENLARGE EACH PHOTO BY CLICKING ON THE PHOTO!

Back to Florida

From the Georgia Rally, we headed back to Williston, FL where Doug spent several more days selling photos and Homer and I held down the home front. This cardinal kept insisting on sitting on the window edge of the motorhome and singing. If the window was closed, he would keep banging against it trying to chase off his reflection.

From Williston, we headed down to the Tampa area. Our original plan was for Doug's mom, Oma, to fly down and spend a week with us in central Florida. But, Oma got sick and was just getting out of the hospital so her visit had to be canceled. We decide to go anyway and we headed to Seffner, FL just east of Tampa. We stayed at a campground that a huge RV dealer, Lazy Days, has and it was a lovely campground. They even fed you breakfast and lunch each day free of charge. These beautiful bromeliads are in the cafe where breakfast and lunch were served. The white lilly flower was outside the the campground office. While at Lazy Days, we both took a driving course in how to drive the motorhome. We learned lots of good hints in both the class time and the actual driving time and even got certificates of passing the course! Doug can now back our bus into a parking space on a dime - Nada still needs a little more practice to get on the dime! While at the campground we met a lovely French couple from outside of Quebec City. Francois reminded us so much of our Josh. Looked a lot like him and was a real motorhead. He developed a track system for ATVs and Gators where bulldozer-like tracks replace the wheels) so they can run in sand and snow. His product is sold in 25 countries and he and Suzanne just returned from setting up dealers in China.
