Tuesday Thoughts.

The start of what looks like another great day. The official Inverness forecast says it will be sunny and 91 today, that means probably a dip in the pool for Sam.

Donna got up nauseas, don’t have a clue why.

Yesterday after a great lunch of the best “Fall off the bone ribs you could hope for, we, including the pups had a swim to celebrate memorial Day.About 1500hr the IMC announced, “ swim call, all swimmers lay to the number three elevator, for swim call, Marine shark team man your station:.

              This is so much fun, Thanks Dad & Uncle Paul for letting us swim..

All I can say is this has been the best first week of a retirement I could have hoped for, we thoroughly are enjoying Paul & Helen’s hospitality and friendship. Thank God we met when they were returning from Alaska. The four Lab’s all get along like brother and sister and just love the water. After a swim they all have to lay down and snooze.

Still haven’t decided on a stop in Destin, I saw a nice RV Park advertised right on the beach, but then it said No Dogs Allowed, so they won’t be seeing us.We may just go up to Summerdale at the Escapees Park and visit Pensacola from there.

That’s about it for now, Be safe out there. Sam & Donna…


  1. so glad that the first week of your vacation has gone well! dogs and a pool and warm weather?..not much more you can ask for!
    no dogs allowed?..say it isn't so?..geesh!

  2. Even if we didn't have dogs, there is no way I would stay at a park that didn't allow them. A great first week of retirement except for that nauseous part. Those pups are having so much fun.

  3. We've been to the Escapees Park in Summerdale. That would be a good choice. Perhaps the heat got to Donna and that is why she is not feeling the best. It always does it to me. Keep hydrated! Lots of water.

  4. That pool looks pretty inviting....We are expecting storms here tonight...that happens every time it warms up...Have fun!

  5. We found the area around Destin to be very dog un-friendly. There was nowhere we could even walk with Abby anywhere near the beach. Good luck and hope you find a nice dog friendly place. Paul and Nina found lots of them in that part of Florida I think.
