Trip Time!–Silver Springs State Park Plus…

image

Marcia wondered how we would “make it” without the dogs around for 3+ months as we headed back from California to Florida.  I told her we would “make it” because every three weeks or so we would take a trip in the motorhome for 3-6 days so that we could be with the dogs.  We got back to Florida on January 9th, and on Monday the 27th we take off for Silver Springs State Park for a couple of days, and then over to the Orlando area to visit with Marcia’s brother Dean and his wife Carol.  We will be back on Saturday or Sunday.  So this time we made it 18 days….it seems so much longer than that.

Because we will be getting away Monday around 4 pm, we will only be going the Rest Area on I-75 for the first night.  This Rest Area is fairly new, and it is laid out like a Rest Area should be.  The Google Satellite image above shows the layout.  The RV’s are on one side of the building, the trucks are on the other.  Autos are in between, closer to the RV’s than the trucks.  And, like all rest areas in Florida that are open during the night, there is Night Security.  Sure would be nice if other states followed Florida’s lead on this.

Told the kids about the trip today, and it even put a smile on Bubba’s face!  (Was he showing off his nice clean teeth, or was it just photoshop?????  You decide.)  It will sure be nice….the last two times I visited them, Skruffy wanted to go back to the car…that look she gives me just breaks my heart.  She “likes” being with the other dogs, with her Uncle Mike and Aunt Sandy and the kids….but she “LOVES” being with mom and dad (especially dad), and she just can’t understand it.  We will be picking them up slightly after noon, and after Marcia’s visit with the Chiropractor at 2, we will get the motorhome, head over to the condo to load a few things, and off we go.

  2. So glad the dogs are going on a trip with mom and dad. I don't know if I could do what you are doing. Leaving those two must be so hard.

  3. Yes, we will have some good ole "puppy time", that is for sure. Leaving Skruffy each day is not easy....she is a rescue and latched onto me from the first minute she saw me....and I to her. She sat on Marcia's lap all the way to the Rest Area, where we now sit for night one of our five night outing.
