Desperately Seeking a Hot Tub

When we left the Atlanta rally we knew we'd make it to somewhere in northern Florida, so I started looking for an RV park using my Allstays app on my Droid phone.  Yippee, we found a park, and it even has a hot tub!  Ohhhhh how we wanted a soak!  We pulled in just about sunset and the office was closed but a phone number was posted, so we called and were told which site to take, but he also informed us that there was no operational parkwide hot tub - only the onsite tubs at the premium sites

ohhhhh nooooo

Oh well - that's how it goes.  We took a walk, had some dinner, watched some TV and went to bed.  The next day we figured we could make it all the way to Fort Lauderdale if we really tried.  But we had our normal, lazy morning.  Then, as we were passing Gainesville, we decided to do some Trader Joes shopping.  So, it was already 2 or 3 o'clock and we weren't even to Orlando yet.  hmmm - we could go just a little out of our way and stay at our membership park - Thousand Trails - just west of Orlands. And ... they have a great hot tub!  Yes, we can be a day late to Fort Lauderdale.

When we checked in, the first words out of my mouth was, "how's the hot tub?"  Oh, sorry, it's out of order at the moment.

oohhhhhhh NOOOOOO!

Oh well, staying there didn't cost us anything.
We were on our way the next morning and made reservations to be back in a week, they promised the hot tub would be fixed by then!  We've stayed at Thousand Trails Orlando many times and the hot tub has always been wonderful, so we trusted.

My main reason for visiting Fort Lauderdale was to see Mom.  She was great!

This picture was taken after I took her to her semi-annual visit to the Neurologist ... the memory doctor.  As we were going there, she asked me (several time) "so ... where are we going? ... I forget"  I would answer her, "you have an appointment with the memory doctor."  She would laugh and laugh and laugh!
Her memory is non-existent - short term, or long term - but her sense of humor is fully intact!  She still clearly knows who I am, and it's good to see her.
Jim and I also had a couple of Dr. appts during our week stay.  Then we took off again for 2 weeks at Thousand Trails Orlando.
We like the sites back in the woods. Very pretty. And we had a great sunset for our happy hour with Laura, Geoff, Linda and David. Nice.:

But ... would you believe the hot tub STILL isn't in working order. OOHHHHH NOOOOOOO
