They live near Ocala in the middle of Florida and their RV club was going on a rally to St. Augustine for St. Patty's Day weekend.
They invited me and I accepted.....then started wondering how in the world I was going to get there! (It's about 3 hours north of Port St. Lucie and I can barely drive a half hour without major muscle spasms and pain.)
I convinced my new friend, Norma Pennie to go and be my driver. I didn't get a good photo of their RV but you can get a glimpse of the full-body paint job. Norma is in the foreground.
We got there on Friday evening and enjoyed heavy hors d'oeuvres (which we considered dinner) at the clubhouse of the campground.
Saturday, Dave went to play golf and I'm sure he was glad to escape a girls' shopping trip. Jan's friend, Dorothy joined Jan, Norma, and me. I had forgotten how fantastic the shopping is in old St. Augustine. There was one little art shop and boutique after another with totally unique clothes, jewelry, and home accessories. We shopped till we dropped!!
We got back to the campgrounds in time for the corned beef and cabbage dinner, which was sooo good. It was nice to just get away and share laughs and conversation with dear long-time and new friends.
It means so much to be with special, close friends. Thank you, Jan and Dave, and a special thanks to Norma for driving (I think she had a good time, too).
