Florida we have arrived!!!

Hafa afai florida!!!  (Written 3 days ago) yes I know, I'm slack. Here it is the first day of fall and we have made it to Florida. When we first decided to start traveling it was the plan that we were going to take our time, but plans change and we adapt. We sold our 31' motorhome to go smaller and packed up our minimal belongings and went ahead to Florida to buy a smaller one. I'm going to enjoy every second that I have left to live and I'm going to do whatever it is that needs doing. So here we go on our quest to find a smaller more economical van like home. Yes I'm looking for a new GIMA-TA! πŸ˜‰πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¬πŸ‡ΊπŸ˜ƒ❤ Hopefully, now it will only be a few months in Florida and then onward towards another place or adventure, or should I say both another place and adventure at the same time.

Spontaneous behavior at its best

Here it is...3 days after our departure date had passed to leave this beautiful city and I'm not the least bit upset about the delay. It was our own doing. And for a damn good reason! We sold our motorhome! Yes, I'm happy, and yes we are continuing with our passion to travel! We decided at the last minute that if we were to continue on our way to travel the country, that we wanted to do it in something smaller. It has been only 8 months of living in this 31' beauty, and we will miss her greatly. The time has been great and we realized after downsizing from a 3 bedroom house, that we are more than capable of downsizing even more. So that became our new present goal that I knew we would succeed at! So yes I'm happy we will soon be headed to Florida to see my mama, to get a smaller Gima-ta (my home in the Chamorro language) and to take life as it comes and to enjoy life as it is. We will do what we please and be spontaneous every step of the way. πŸ‡¬πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ❤πŸ˜ƒ

Cemetery Day

 I don't care if you try and deny it, but we all have great feelings for cemeteries, whether it be scared, sad, fascinated, or happy. These places that have forever been on sacred and blessed grounds are in one way or another touching us as we walk through headstone and flower-filled rows of our dead ancestors or newly deceased family. I personally get a feeling of awe. I am fascinated at the decorative mausoleums and headstones that adorn some of the grounds that hold the remains of our loved ones. There are stone angels, animals, Saints, and an array of other interesting things that make me want to go to more cemeteries. I have been to quite a few cemeteries around Charleston (because who wouldn't live here) and there are some old ones with some old dates associated with them and today I forgot there was one that I had never been to for some odd reason. It was the Magnolia Cemetery along with 3 or 4 other one's next door, like the Bethany Cemetery, St. Lawrence Ceme
