Sweet home Alabama

Posted by | Filed under Alabama, Florida | Apr 16, 2010 | Comments Off

I am enjoying myself in Gulf Shores, Alabama.  I got lucky with my campground once again.  Not right at the beach this time, but super quiet.  It is only a short 5 mile drive to the beach. There are not enough hours in the day to get everything done.  So here are just a couple […]

Can it get any better?

Just a quick note.  Made it to Carrabelle Beach at the Florida panhandle.  The Sunset Isle campground is brand new, nice and quiet.  Bring buck spray, the marsh is close by and little flies are numerous. Don’t think anything can beat the Keaton Beach location anytime soon.

I am back on the road again.  Left Miami on Thursday slowly making my way northward.  I stayed away from the big interstate highways and made my way up through the center of Florida.  Passed through the Big Cypress National Preserve, just north of the Everglades, where I stopped at the Clyde Butcher photo gallery.  […]

A day at home

Home, sweet home.  I spend the entire day at home taking care of regular household chores and a little work.  The camper and JD (the truck) got a good cleaning as well.  I continue to figure out how things work.   I had some water dripping out of the rear of the camper, very strange since there […]

The tournament is coming to an end

The last days of a tennis tournament feel always a little sad to me.  On the one hand you are happy that you go back to a regular work schedule on the other hand you have to say good bye to your fellow photographers and people you met during the tournament.  Often you don’t even get […]

Life’s a beach

Ah, finally the weather is warming up, no rain just blue sky.  I took advantage of the beautiful morning and went to the beach for an hour before the matches started.      

Always check your tank!

Just something to remember when you travel with a camper.  Make sure you know the capacity of your holding tanks.  Otherwise you will be standing in the shower wondering why the water does not drain.  I had not realized that my gray water holding tank was full.  So when I came home late last night from the […]

Rain delay

Not all is sunny in sunny Florida.  We lived through a 4 hour rain delay yesterday.  Which in a way was great because it gave me time to fix the blog header.

Just a little tennis

Spend most of the day inside working.  However, I managed to catch the end of the Svetlana Kuznetsova vs. Shuai Peng match.  Here is the result.  FYI, Kuznetsova won.  

Making it a home

I don’t know if you saw the movie “Up In The Air” with George Clooney.  I saw it a couple of days ago.  When Clooney’s character gave his motivational speech about what to put into your pack back and how everything and everyone you put into it weighs you down, I had to think about […]
