Lost in Paradise Con’t

Leave a comment

Being Lost in Paradise requires appropriate music.

I think Jimmy Buffett’s Cheeseburger in Paradise is perfect for this occasion. Maybe I’ll even have a cheeseburger in paradise before I go.

Much love to you.

Someone whistles
Metal wheels on asphalt

A big diesel pulls away

The sounds of the morning surround me

1.  Safe Water

Knowing the water is tested and safe is great. Definitely a happy thing.

2.  Quote of the day

Talking about himself, the child said, “My life is awesome!” That will put a smile on my face.

3. Turkey

I like turkey. I look forward to it at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Today I cooked some. Yep, it’s not Thanksgiving or Christmas. I rubbed the 3 pound turkey (beast)* breast with Cajun seasoning and popped it in the slow cooker. Five hours later it was moist, tender, and delicious.

Gratitude Helps and Heals

I am grateful for the opportunities I have to travel and for the random turkey moments.

Peace and love

1.  Yellow Hammer RV

Life on the road entails finding places to land for varying periods of time. I managed a spot here for a week or so while I visit my cardiologist. I’m not sure where is next. That’s ok.

2.  Vero

I’m enjoying this new social media outlet.

3. My Mentor

My mentor has come to play for a few days. It’s always good when he visits.

Gratitude Helps and Heals

I am grateful for safe travels. I’ve driven a lot more than usual in the last couple of weeks.

Much love to you.

The Rebel Heart

Leave a comment

How is your rebel heart today?

An outlaw, I hope. A warrior ready to romance the unknown with the creative and resilient expression of your soul.

If you want to walk on water, sink your ships and burn your bridges. If you want to live an extraordinary life, get rid of your Plan B and start acting like Plan A is your only option.

Plan A is terrifying and excruciating, yes. No ground in sight when you first jump, but that’s when creativity can operate most freely and build you homes (and hope) on your way down.

3.2.18

I’m camping at Magnolia Branch Wildlife Preserve with Belle and Elliot.

Today’s adventures:

We went to the Wind Creek Casino Grill for breakfast. I had a cheese, spinach, and bacon omelette, a biscuit, strawberry jam, unsweetened tea, and hash browns. It was tasty.

Afterwards we toured the impressive casino facilities: two gift shop, huge pool, gambling floors, hotel, buffet, spa, a couple of bars, game room, cooking classes, bowling alley, movie theaters, coffee shop, liquor store, amphitheater, and the Grill. We boogied to the music 🎶 from the rocking rock.

Back at World HQ we hiked to the creek and went wading. We hiked to the burn pile and picked up giant pine cones. Later we hiked down the road, saw some geese, and played kick the pine cone.

We hiked a couple of miles total. Pretty good considering one of us was only one year old.

We trekked to David’s Catfish House for supper. I had two catfish filets, coleslaw, hush puppies, and turnip greens. I liked it all but the greens. The prices were reasonable and they had an intriguing decor that included a phone booth in case one needed to transform into a super hero.

On the way back to World HQ we made a short trip to Florida.

I’m looking forward to what tomorrow brings.

Further Down the Road

6 Comments

I rolled Further down the road today. I left New Orleans and Jude Travel Park, went by the U-Haul for some propane and some tight space driving practice (a scary proposition when I’m almost 9’ wide and 44’ long). I flirted with the nice lady. I did some really fancy weaving between the buildings, trucks, and trailers. Everyone that worked there was ready to hop on board the bus. It’s was a rocking and rolling good time at the U-Haul. I paid $53 for the propane and I was history.

I went by the abandoned Six Flags next to I-510. I would like to spend a day there.

From Mobile Alabama I traveled the Hero’s Highway (because it was hero time) and arrived around two pm at Magnolia Branch. I sure did miss my hero partner.

I passed some fire trucks and the burned out husk of someone’s motor home. I hope they escaped.

Happy in the month of thanksgiving.

1.  MBWR

Magnolia Branch Wildlife Refuge is a hidden gem in Central Alabama. We have have a large campsite. The (boathouse)* bathhouse is adequate. There are great bike riding spaces, a nice lake, a river, and we have cell service. It’s a bit remote which is great.

2.  A travel companion

I’ve enjoyed having a traveling companion for the last few weeks. It always seems like more fun sharing the adventure.

3.  New Front Curtains

I enjoy writing The Happy Things blogs. Each week I try to post 3 things that create happiness in my eternal Now. There will be apparent repetition but Now brings new and unique happinesses even to what seems old.  

1.  Jake’s Fish Camp 
I visit here every time I’m in the area.  Jake’s is a unique cultural experience on the banks of the Alabama River:  live music, local bands (I heard the River Rats), t-shirts, food, beverages, fishing, and a boat launch. Good times. 
And, as an added bonus…CAMPING
Water
Electric
Dump station
$25 a day
$150 a week
*Prices subject to change

2.  A Kayak 
The search for the appropriate kayak continues.
Considerations:
Length
Weight
Hardbody or inflatable
Transporting it
Roof racks
Tracking
Stability
Sit on or sit in
Fishing?
Smooth or rough water or both 
Cost
Color
Single or tandem 
Tie down straps 

3.  Latte
There was a personal latte shortage for a couple of months.  I visited a coffee shop yesterday after this latte drought.  A good latte is a thing of beauty and tasty too.
