Visit with Grandchildren

We had a wonderful time with three of our grandchildren, and I miss them already. We are now preparing to leave Ocean View, Delaware and head towards Hagerstown, Maryland where we will be work campers for the next seven months. We are excited and looking forward to our new venture, and also, we will be much closer to all of our children and grandchildren.

Wayne and I moved into our 2011 Nomad in May 2011. We spent the next two months living at Assateague Island National Seashore where Wayne was Camp Host and I finished my work with a local law office.
June 30, 2011 we moved onto Myrtle Beach, South Carolina where we worked for 5 weeks at the KOA.
August 4, 2011 we headed to Anastasia State Park in St. Augustine, Florida. All the while, since June 1st, this has been one of the hottest summers on record. While volunteering at Anastasia hurricane Irene was due to hit the area. We were fortunate though, as Irene took a turn away from Florida and hit east coast above us pretty bad.
September 19, 2011 we headed to Fort Wilderness Campground at Walt Disney World. This was our planned vacation as it had been six years since any real vacation. We were well aware our fulltime workamping lifestyle is not a perma vacation as we had already spent a lot of time and attention to planing our travels and workamping positions. One of our daughters, Beth, and granddaughter, Kiley, joined us at Walt Disney World. Kiley is a princess fan, being a princess herself, and especially loves Belle. What joy I felt when Kiley got to meet Belle in person.
October 4, 2011 we arrived at our four month volunteer position with Lake Kissimmee State Park in Lake Wales, Florida. What a great place and we thoroughly enjoyed the campground, wildlife and Park Rangers! We plan to return next Fall.
January 30, 2012 we said goodbye to Lake Kissimmee and headed to Lakeland, Florida to visit some of our favorite spots before heading back north.
It is now March 7th and we head back north in a week. It has been a great experience and a good start for our first year. We will be working at a campground in Maryland for a while. It will be great to be close to all our kids and grandkids again.
