CAMELOT RV PARK
CAMELOT seemed like a really appropriate place for us to begin our new adventure. The name carries with it the emobodiment of things we all hope for and aspire to and as noted in The Arthurian Encyclopedia, Arthurian scholar Norris J. Lacy once commented on Camelot "Camelot, located nowhere in particular, can be anywhere." So also, I believe, is home for the fulltimer, the gypsy of the 21st century. It's where he parks for the night - nowhere in particular just another spot to pause on lifes road.
The camera doesn't like the sunscreen on the front windshield so the view is not quite as clear as it is to the naked eye. I guess this just goes to show how much our minds role is in interpreting the images it get's from our eyes. When we look out we hardly notices the screen and these sunrises are an almost daily spectacular for us.
That's the intercostal waterway out front and the beach is just a short ride away.
We settled into our new home and got back to work getting our Tax Time Special out the door and getting the new tax tables and other first of the year work done.
This year we decided that we would stay put in our new spot for Christmas and keep it simple. Our gift to ourselves this year was our new freedom and our new home. But we did have to take into consideration our duty to help keep the economy going so there were a few little things :))
Sheila scored a stack of books and I scored on some chrome and goodies for the bike and the coach.
And of course the Pink Flamingo :)) and there is of course a story that goes with the pink flamingo.
A post on RV.net a few months back was from another RVer and he was asking about "nice" rv parks. While pointing out several times that he didn't want to seem snooty, he commented on not wanting to stay in parks with "long term camper" and specifically mentioned how "pink flamingos" in the yard were a sign of these distasteful locations.
Well I held my tongue, but I detemined that wherever we go I'd like to have my Flamingos to put out - so they went on the top of my Chrismas list. So here they are, proudly strutting their stuff in our yard.
It was a good Christmas and a good year. We've made some major changes this year, changes that have put the excitement about what lies ahead back into our lives.
So without further ado, let's 'git on down the road'.
