Endless RV Summer

Zip Codes

Between the two of us, we have lived in nearly five dozen different cities and quadruple the zip codes. Moving around feels better than landing and staying put, probably part of the wanderlust. Living in different cities, is better than vacationing in them. We want to talk about the tourists, not be one.

We particularly like to get off of the main roads and cut through the neighborhoods, by car or by bike, to drink in the local architecture. Every town has it’s own unique building styles. Down here, we love the Key West style houses. Now, to our surprise, we’ve added a new flavor – modern. The modern houses in this area are superb. Here’s a gulf front house over on Boca Grande. 

The Swamp

We are meeting the most amazing people here. Patrick and I notice how happy people are. Maybe people are this happy everywhere,  but in Florida, folks are outside and easier to access for us to assess their state of mind.

Today we met a very like minded couple, except for the 20 year age difference (I’ll admit Patrick and I were the seniors). Natasha and Spencer are on their way to Everglade City a.k.a. The Swamp. Their beautiful puppy, Augustus Pierre, a pug/dachshund is one of the coolest dogs we’ve met. Natasha is originally from Ireland and while spiriting her way around the US found Spencer in Utah. Now together they are creating a life driven by wanderlust. She’s keeping an illustration journal and talked about how it has affected her life. Drawing and wanderlust, I love it ! I’m very inspired, thanks Natasha !! We’ll come see you guys next month. We’re ready for The Swamp !

The last thing I sketched was Patrick fishing in Hatteras.

Might Tolkien have had an RV ?
