Its true! Even RVers take a holiday every now and then.
I know that sounds kind of blase’. Even when we are RVing, we still have schedules, work, chores, planning, paying bills, blogging, studying, etc. We have to remember that our RVing is a lifestyle and not a continuous vacation. As funny as that sounds, getting away helps renew. Also, living in such tight quarters in our RV, getting a little time away from each other, makes the hearts stronger.
This past January (2016), leaving our rig and resident mousers behind in good hands of caretakers, we both flew to Tampa to enjoy a little Florida Sunshine in St. Petersburg to see some friends.
We also planned on attending the Tampa RV Super Show. Now, before you start wondering, we weren’t shopping for a new RV. We actually wanted to meet up with some of the Heartland Corporate Sales and Regional Representatives and see what the latest and greatest in the RV industry.
We also connected with a few fellow members of the Heartland Owners Club.
After the show, we met up with an old shipmate and his wife whom we were stationed with 20 years prior on Cape Cod at the RV Super Show and then later, had dinner. (Hi Alec & Kathy!)
After a few short days, Dan had to fly back to Texas as he had a former Coast Guard Shipmate coming to visit him the following weekend. I stayed in Florida for another week or so to spend with my best friend, Claudia and her mom, Helga and get some beach time. No shoes. No shirts. No problems.
Just good friends and relaxation time.
The days were so relaxing. We went shelling and went on our power walks.
While I was down there, I also met up with a dear friend from our Boston days for lunch the day I flew back out. (Hi Anne!)
Though our and my time down there was short, it was just what we needed. Just because we live in an RV doesn’t mean that we don’t deserve a little time away from RVLife.
