Goodbye Cedar Key

Our month here in Cedar Key, Florida has come to an end.  Today we will be moving our house over to Orange City, Florida, about 130 miles to the east.  We chose this play because Chris and Cherie of Technomadia were spending part of the winter here.  We have followed their blog for several years, and it was one of several that gave us the inspiration to throw caution to the wind and start this full-time RV lifestyle.  We have never looked back.

We have met a lot of wonderful folks here, many of them were also “blog stalkers” of Chris and Cherie.  Our goal here was to just spend some time relaxing and winding down after 3 months of working at Amazon.  Now we are ready to move on to a “big city”.  This past week we continued having impromptu events.  Tuesday was a Trailer Trash pot luck, in which you made your favorite pot luck dish.

Wednesday it was only in the 40’s, so we had movie night in our camper, and watched RV with Robin Williams, and a 2003 documentary on the Burning Man festival.  We had seen RV before (a very funny movie that every RV’er should see), but the Burning Man documentary was very enjoyable. (thanks Chris for bringing the movies).  It is a festival that takes place in August in the Black Rock desert area in Nevada.  It has a creative, artistic feel to it.

Thursday we headed down the road to the Tiki Bar, for one last visit.

Yesterday our neighbors refrigerator decided to stop working, so they had an impromptu fruit smoothie party, to use up all the fruit in their freezer that was thawing out.



After that, Chris and Cherie played an outdoor movie on the side of their bus.  It was a classic, The Long, Long, Trailer, with Lucille Ball and Desi Arnez.  It was very funny, and I think anyone that has ever towed a trailer would love it.

It is time to go and say our “see you laters” (I no longer do good-byes), and head on to a new adventure.  As an introverted person, this has been a challenging month for me, with all the social activities.  I have been spending a lot of time thinking about that, and will probably post my thoughts about that in a future post.
