Life's Journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, totally worn out, shouting "Wow...What a Ride!"

Having Fun in Port Aransas

We've  been here at Gulf Waters over month already, what with Thanksgiving, fishing (Dave) and all of the socializing we've been doing the time has flown by. Three and a half more and we'll be heading back north to VT :(

We're ready for Christmas, lights up outside, the tree is up and the inside is decorated, packages to the kids are in the mail. Plans to celebrate the Christmas holiday are made, a little more baking to do  next week we'll be ready for celebrate.

 Shortly after Thanksgiving some more of our friends arrived, DuWayne and Jackie are from WI we met them here last winter and have stayed in touch over the summer. With Jackie's arrival, her and I along with our friend Kathy have started walking everyday and if the weather is nice we also get some laps in at the pool. We've been out to lunch a few times, I'm enjoying having some girlfriends around as it seems Dave is spending much of his time fishing or cooking.

Here are some of the highlights of the last few weeks:

Bonfire On The Beach

 Bloggers Get Together

Al & Ingrid of Live Laugh RV, Steve and Mona Liza of The Lowe's RV Adventures and then Dave and I. We had the pleasure of meeting Al & Ingrid last winter here in TX so when we found out they were going to be nearby we planned a meeting. Their blogging friends Steve and Mona Liza were going to be here too so we invited them over too, Dave of course got the smoker going so there was plenty to eat. As can be expected lots of good food and laughs made the evening fly by.
The blogging women
Chicken Shit Bingo
One of the many crazy things they do here in Port Aransas is hold Chicken Shit Bingo at a local watering hole, any excuse to have a drink or two, I think most of Gulf Waters was there

Port Aransas Christmas Boat Parade

Took A Driving Tour of Candy Cane Lane in Corpus Christi

And to think they used to call Dave "Griswold"

A gift from my dad

Since I know I won't be blogging again before the holidays Dave and I would like to wish everyone
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Until next time...


  1. Great to hear from you. I'd been wondering what happened to you. Now I see. You've been having a busy time. Looks like lots of fun with the group. Port A seems to be an RV gathering spot. We've never been there. But I would sure like to. Your decorations are lovely. Happy Holidays to you two!

  2. Fun times! We sure are enjoying our time here. Love all the Christmas lights. Here's to more celebrating in the near future :-)

  3. ans a very Merry Christmas to you two as well...

  4. That's a lot of lights!! CS Bingo looks like a hoot :)

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you both!

  5. You guys are lucky you got to see all the lights while the weather was still good! The chicken shit bingo looks like a lot of fun.
    And yes it was a pleasure and fun to meet. The smoked pork and chicken was delicious….Dave keep that smoker smoking! and thanks for having us.

    1. Good to meet y'all too, wish the weather was more conducive to being outside. Maybe we can get one more smoking in before you leave.

  6. Found your post via Ingrid's Live Laugh RV blog. I'm definitely going to start following & learning from you and Dave since we still have about 3 years to go before we can begin full timing. Happy New Year!

    1. Thanks for commenting and welcome aboard. Time flies so hope your 3 years isn't too long for you. Happy New Year to you also.


Thanks for stopping by;We'd love to hear from you.
