Back to reality … or is it

We're home, after 2 1/2 months on the road, and over 6,000 miles.

 We woke up this morning in our camper van at Anastasia state park. It was 6:30am and the sky was just starting to get light. We were parked in the RV site that was closest to the beach so we could make the walk in time for sunrise at 7. 
It was so beautiful. I felt so connected. 

After 250 miles, and a couple of stops along the way, we pulled in to our parking spot at home at7 pm. The house was cool from the central air conditioning. We brought a few things in from the van, poured a glass of wine, and I plopped down on the couch and picked up the remote for the tv.

As I write this post, several weeks have actually gone by. Time just slips away when we're home. When we're traveling by RV, every day counts. Which one is reality?

Forest and ocean

In 2019 we started our tour with ocean and forest - Gamble Rogers Florida state park and Santee S Carolina state park., this year we're ending with it, Santee then Anastasia.
Such nice places! AND - we've come to a decision about staying in nice places for at least 2 nights. Unless we're in 'gotta-get-there' mode, 2 nights means we get to enjoy being there, not just passing through.

Santee State Park, North Carolina - the Forest

We stayed deep in beautiful forests here. Since we had just taught a session about how cool it is for Google Photos to make sweet little movies - that's what I did with the pictures and videos from our stay at Santee.

Anastasia State Park, Florida - the Ocean

This one has trees AND ocean. We scored the site that is closest to the ocean - it's still a walk - so we actually got up for sunrise to get some nice photos.

And, here's another little movie.
