The pictures I posted on 95/06/2017 showed almost bare trees and almost no lawn because of the dryness following the last winter. Here are the latest ones:....The plant clinging to our awning tie-down rope enhances the scenery...
Size of it: 18' x 7.6' .
Owl in foreground: Good-Bye Gift from our friend and neighbor Phyllis in Bushnell. She painted the owl.
Lately Dieter cannot help me with taking a picture ( my hands are shaky when I want to be precise - - ) because he cannot see clearly. He was diagnosed last month with AMD ( Age-related Macular Disease) and gets injection treatments. It took me a longer time and about 4 deletions to get this one fairly good, very frustrating.
When it will be "roll-over time" for a new cellphone next year, I think I have to give in and get a smartphone, it will be easier on my hands because my Kodak Camera is heavy and I have to push the button down from above. And the picture to be taken will be clearly seen in a bigger size, including better lighting.
when we look to our right..........
....when we look to our left....
The impression is that we have the entire RV Resort for ourselves....
The grass is very dry right now, the rains will correct that in the Florida summer to come - - hopefully!
Picture 1 :
This is a "Snip" from Google Earth - but not a current one. The red marker indicates the office of the owners. We are located at the left side of the road in the view. The loop road goes all the way up to the rim of the woods. Magnolia Trace RV Park has 30 sites - and it is a natural marvel. The mixed and wild wood around us looks like a safety belt, which might be appreciated sometimes, when a storm is on the way. Trees brake the wind......
Picture 2 :
Sofar we avoided being parked underneath trees for several safety reasons, but this time the need to have more shade as aged outdoor persons won. It will save us a couple of dollars on the electric bill ( air conditioner ), for sure. And Dieter and our cat Ellie can sit outside more often. We could have rented a wider lot, but that also means more wind when it is windy and more leaf raking work , and I do like the feeling of a firm perimeter. The trailer across from our entrance area gives us west wind protection and more shade after 7 PM and it is eye-friendly to look at. The paint of it is mustard and allows us to look at it without needing sun glasses.
Picture 3 :
We do not pull in our awning sunshades in the summer, the passing breezes are beneficial. In the wintertime we might need it when the air is cold sometimes.
Picture 4 :
This picture shows you the work Dieter did by building a wooden patio and wooden steps to the trailer in Bushnell. The steps making a big difference, more stability. With these I can "hop up" and go down quickly without looking like I need assistance....Dieter has already plans in his head to double the patio. We will make some improvements month by month or how we will feel at that time.
Picture 5 :
From the back to our Alfa Fifth Wheel to the woods we are talking about 3,5 meters or about 10 foot we have as a "back yard". And this picture gives you an idea, how the Florida sun is always penetrating dense woods to the point of making those looking beautiful. By the way: we have birds around in big numbers, to the delight of our cat. We have so many windows around that she can race from one to another to watch these birds.
Picture 6 :
When we look out of the big windows opposite the entrance area, we have this wonderful view. Our neighbors ( Ellie is a born German ) created this paradise here with so many flower varieties, this pic gives you just a partial view - we love it, it is a feast for the eyes.
You can expect updates - new posts - when things get updated here with us or when the opportunity is good..... Please, you can make comments to this post. Thank you for your attention!
Breezy Oaks RV Park has 156 full hook-up sites now - new streets were built, new sites installed, and the sites across our road were all occupied just 2 weeks ago.
To our delight we have now free view to the woods from our RV patio in the summer. We are parked here annually. Bearing the summer heat and the summer rain, of course, has its rewards.
So many improvements were made since we have new ownership, that it is best giving you the link to the flyer of this park. Our site is # 40. The link will open in pdf format, where you can scroll down to the site map, rules and regulations and a city map. breezyoaksrvpark.com/pdf/BreezyOaksSiteMap.pdf
On March 25. 2017 we celebrated our 60th Wedding Anniversary - just with one couple visiting us. The same couple went to the office and told the news there, and the owner Zeke posted it on the bulletin board at the office. We did not want a mass celebration this time, would have been easy with a potluck at the clubhouse.....
The link above does not need much words added here. Whatever someone wants to know about German Christmas Culture - here it is... Enjoy!
We bought a small shed ( 8' x 6' ) from a Park resident who left this place, and our neighbors Bill and Gary helped Dieter to set it on our rented lot. Then Dieter and I drove to Webster to buy some treated lumber, so he could build the little Deck you see. It is removable and is made of 2 pieces. The bench is from the park and the umbrella we had already for a longer time. One year ago we had bought the Grill because our little one was used up. Since we are not driving with our trailer anymore, we could afford the bigger one.
Our trailer storage areas are now almost empty. When we need something even I can find it in the shed easily...... Overall I like our setup, it really feels more like being at home. Our trailer patio has more room now too because of the grill standing on the Deck..... We have only one plant in the front next to the sun shade, and those "Elephant Ears" are growing nicely.....
In our age we can have small heath scares, but lately we had to deal with a bigger one.....
While Dieter had a lung function test and lung X-Rays last year, he learned that he has a small nodule in his lung. This resulted in visits at the Pulmonologist's office in Inverness several times, over time in a PET Scan and in several CAT Scans with some months of intervals in between. Finally Dieter agreed to have a lung biopsy done. That afforded drives to Inverness 2 times and a week prior to the biopsy he had to leave out the Blood Thinner tab he takes every morning.
We just learned last month that no cancer cells were found. Wow - what a relief that was....
In two weeks I have an appointment in Inverness also, the Surgeon will inspect my mastectomy scars and my overall well-being. The Tamoxifen Tablets prescription has to be renewed after one year taking those. Nothing out of the ordinary in this regard. Besides age-related small pains I fee fine.
When we both see our family doctor in Bushnell next month after having blood work done before, we want to ask to extend or semi-yearly appointment to the usual yearly one, we always had. Will see.
