May 12 – We are enjoying Texas and spending time with Beth. Bill is really enjoying the “fruits” of her labors – she brought over warm berry crisp and left the extras for his breakfast. Today Beth took us to Rose’s Seafood Market and was my navigator in the store. We came away with the […]Read more "Home Sweet Texas"
May 10 – Another early start – we were on the road by 0915 hrs. This whole pack up and hit the road thing is coming back – just like riding a bike. The traffic in Louisiana and Texas is significantly higher volume, but polite. Our travel was pretty light – we covered 214 […]Read more "Hello Texas! It’s Been Awhile!"
May 9 – Day 2 en route to Houston. We switched to CST yesterday, so woke earlier than we planned. Wheels turning by 0901 hrs, and pointed west, still on I-10. Funny thing about being in one place for a long time (we were stationary for 6 months!) – you run the risk of getting […]Read more "Milton FL to Dusan LA – 4 Warps!"
It has taken three attempts for us to be on the road again – this time we did it! We left Osprey Cove at 0935 hrs. and traveled I10 West for the day. Last week we were getting ready for our first try and the truck developed a severe case of fatigue – seriously lost […]Read more "On The Road – Take 3"
As most people are doing, the Dumonts are staying home and off the roads, still! We are doing our best to stay healthy, trying to absorb copious amounts of vitamin D being outside in the sunshine, and dodging the occasional thunderstorm. Some of our frequent quarantine pastimes include trying to guess which day it is, […]Read more "Staying At Home…"
By this time, we had planned to be headed west to see Beth in Texas, our brother Mike and sister Kathy in Oklahoma, and the Grand Canyon, and finish our state map. You all know the story. We have been fortunate enough to be able to stay in Mayport at Osprey Cove. Things are very […]Read more "Dumonts Are NOT on the Road Again!"
We hit the road on Tuesday to celebrate our anniversary. This time, the house stayed behind at the campground. We have visited Savannah for our anniversary many times. It’s time to explore new places – so we chose Saint Augustine. Just an hour and a half south of Mayport, so it’s pretty much in the […]Read more "Playing Tourist"
Friday morning found the Dumont Trio on the road again! Bill offered to make the trip to the cold North so we could spend Christmas with Mom – an extra special Christmas present for me. We made our plans, including renting a car so we didn’t have to take our truck/tow vehicle and put […]Read more "WHOA – Not in Florida!!!"
This might the virtual equivalent of a postcard from us to you! Fall has found us in Florida…it’s cooler here – in the low 70’s today with abundant sunshine. Just the kind of day that begs you to go fishing on the beach. Actually, we’ve been doing a lot of that recently. Earlier in the […]Read more "Virtual Postcards…Wish You Were Here!"
We’ve been in place for 2 weeks, and are so blessed by our time here in “the Cove”. Our winter “Cove Family” is slowly returning and we are enjoying delightful reunions. Last week, we were treated to a variety of entertainment on the beach. The Marines were conducting exercises on the beach and ocean using […]Read more "Loving Life!"
