I’m sitting by the pool in Key West, Florida and my biggest frustration today was trying to get this iPad connected to the WiFi network. I feel so damn lucky. I’m not on vacation, I’m traveling for the winter and spending the next two months here. Today we’re taking it easy and I know that sounds like I’m bragging but really we’ve been on the move every day since we left home. We have fallen into somewhat of a routine though, we wake early (we’re morning people) have coffee and a muffin and take Cooper for a 3.5 to 4 mile walk around the island. Then we decide on our course for the day and today we were both tired. It has worked out to our advantage though as I was sitting quietly at my campsite I spied a momma chicken and her babes scratching around the bushes and as I watched them for a bit I heard another noise and an iguana was descending from the tree next to our patio. The iguanas have been absent since we arrived due to the cold snap that seemed to engulf a large portion of the US. We actually heard a news report advising people to watch for iguanas falling from trees because of the cold and if you found one to lay it in the sun to warm. Seems like this guy was ready to sun himself.
I’m not certain this traveling lifestyle is for everyone and we are certainly newbies but we’ve made it two weeks, had a few hiccups along the way but have stayed the course and managed to laugh when things get complicated.
