What a Great Time We are Having

After traveling across country again and all the major traveling we have planned for this year, we had a serious discussion about how we really feel about all the traveling. There are times since Jerry and I are so intuitive with one another that I feel I have to hear it from him first because many times it feels as if he is just agreeing with me to make me happy. But, then I hear him talk about something and it is as if it came out of my mouth. This discussion was just that, we both agreed that we love the traveling and every once in awhile it would be nice to stay in one place a week or so and that is what we decided to do at this time.

We are settled in at Bee’s RV Resort in Clermont, Florida for one week and we are having a blast. They have so many activities going on but we are also finding time to relax and catch up on our writing. We took a walk across the highway to see some of the RV’s for sale, no Big Foot Class C’s to entice us so we just checked out the store and found nothing we couldn’t live without.

The resort has a local man set up a vegetable stand in an open area in the park weekly and his prices were not bad, so we bought some fresh, yummy tomatoes, red peppers, cucumbers, strawberries, blueberries, and a mango. Never tasted a fresh mango before but we have to wait for it to ripen to taste it.

Thursday evenings they get together in the recreation hall and play Pass the Ace aka Screw Your Neighbor but it’s the same game. They had 3 different tables going on and we were at the “funnest” table of them all. We all talked and laughed so hard, a few of us almost wet ourselves. What a great thing to do, meet folks for the first time and then hit it off so well it was as if we’ve known one another for years. We played 4 rounds with about 7 to 9 people at each round. Jerry and I were always part of the final four and I even won one of the pots. They play for nickels, so it costs 15 cents per round and I won a little over $1 which paid for our night. Woohoo!

On Friday they have a all-you-can-eat Fish Fry and Bingo follows. The place is a gold mine for them, it was non-stop people from 4pm to 7pm and they serve huge portions. They are right when they advertise, “If you leave hungry, we guarantee that it's your own fault!.“ They serve Alaskan Pollock either fried or baked, we tried both and they were both tender, tasty and left you wanting more. The Coleslaw was nothing special, they served an Chunky Apple Sauce which had the perfect ingredients to make it enticing. The French Fries were snappy but needed more salt and the Corn Fritters were not to my liking but Jerry thought they were good. For a good meal at under $10 we would recommend it.

After dinner we played Bingo, didn't win, our lucky ducks weren't so lucky but met another group of folks that we had a blast with, as the title states...we are having the time of our lives.

Throughout the years there have been several names that we see in the different forums or blogs we follow and Donna aka Froggi was always one of them. Lately, she has been hard to really follow since she has several different blogs but we have a tendency to always see her somewhere. That is just what happened here, she and hubby is staying at Bee’s awhile and we stopped and had a short visit with them when we arrived. We will try to get together during our stays but we are all staying pretty busy.

So glad you all are having the "time of your lives." We are familiar with Bees RV Resort also...we picked up our Dutch Star there almost two years ago. The former owners were camped there. We didn't stay long but we were impressed.
Have fun!!

That all looks like a lot of fun. I can hardly wait to hit the road. I like how you and Jerry communicate and are honest with each other. Way to go! I follow Donna aka Froggi too...say "hi" to her from Donna K @ Travel Therapy!! Hope to meet up with my blog buddies someday.

Sounds like lots of fun going on. I am just a bit jealous that you got to meet Donna and Stu! If you are near Tuscaloosa this winter, stop in to see us!

At first I thought you were in Tuscaloosa, Florida which is just a few miles from where we are but then I realized you are in Alabama. We just came from that direction, maybe next time.
