November 19 - 30, 2010 "Thanksgiving at the Beach"

Click for Weslaco, Texas Forecast

Gee whiz, time really does fly by when you’re having fun. I have heard that all my life, and never REALLY understood it, until now. It has been 6 months since we sold the “stix & brix”, and embarked on this full time RV lifestyle, and so far, no regrets, nada.

Meeting new people, and getting them to share their life’s experiences is fascinating; no matter where they originated. We have met people here from 4 countries, in addition to the US and Canada, a lady from Poland, and then, of course, there are a few from Key Beck. Where the hell is that, you asked? Eastern Canada, as in Quebec, a country in and of itself, as the true Key Becker only speaks French. It makes for some interesting conversations.

Did I mention, there is at least 1 special event every week that involves food. These Winter Texans like to eat. Having a meeting and want people to attend, just throw in something edible. This week’s event was a birthday party for Allison, the event coordinator here at Country Sunshine. Everyone attending is asked to bring something, and as always, it’s BYOB.

CC is staying active with chair exercise in the mornings at 8:15, and Zoomba at 11 AM or 1 PM. Sometime it is difficult to fit in time for a trip SOTB, but so far we have managed at least one trip per week to shop, have a margarita at the Red Panty, and dine at one of the many restaurants in Progresso. No day would be complete without our usual afternoon “Pool Time” from around 2 – 4 PM. After dinner we usually do the hot tub thing, cocktail in hand, to unwind from our hectic schedule. LOL

Pictured below is just one of the many tropical flowers surrounding the pool; Bird of Paradise, I’m told.

Because we can, we did. Bucket List Item #34 - Spend Thanksgiving Day at the beach. We opted for a trip to South Padre Island versus stay at the park and over eat at the Thanksgiving Day pot luck buffet. It was a little breezy, but we hardly noticed, as we are truly thankful for all we have, family and friends included.

After a day at the beach, what better way to unwind?

Hope your Thanksgiving was as memorable as ours. Until next time……
