And now, for something completely different

Here it is, December already,  and we have been settled in Davenport, Florida for just over a month. In my blog post entitled "Crossroads," I discussed the idea that we would look for a small mobile home community to live in for 6 months out of the year. No sooner did we arrive in Florida, then we started looking for a 55+ community that met our criteria. The day we looked, we found just what we needed. An offer was made, accepted, and closing date set. On November 17th, we closed. And now, we are the proud owners of a just under 1200 square foot manufactured home in a lovely community with lots of amenities, including a heated pool and hot tub. Woohoo!

In the meantime, we left North Carolina and headed back to Sevierville, TN to wait to hear from the dealer.  We'll still be heading to Charleston, Savannah, and St. Augustine before we return to Davenport…
