We're Having too Much Fun to Blog in the Little RV

After months of anticipation we arrived in the Keys on Monday, October 31st. We are not at all disappointed. Our site is amazing, the weather is perfect, the campground staff and residents are kind, helpful, and friendly. It's going to be tough to leave this place on December 1st. 

We booked this reservation last winter in hopes Rob would be well enough to make the trip. We are in a very small park with only 38 sites including boat slips. This is a map of the park. Our site is in the upper, left corner. They call it the point. It's perfect. 

We have been in the pool every day since we arrived. I haven't been in a bathing suit this much for 40 years. The temperatures are right around 80 degrees during the day and in the low 70s during the night. If the humidity is low we can leave the windows open. The breeze is so nice. 


Neither of us has been in the Keys before so it's a whole new experience. Murphy seems to be enjoying it as well. He loves to nap on his cool mat on our little beach in front of the Little RV.


Yesterday I took Murphy to the local dog beach. He had a blast playing in the water.  Unfortunately he drank A LOT of sea water and got sick. He's feeling better today though. I'm not entirely sure how to keep him from drinking the water aside from keeping him off the beach and that's just sad. 

While we were at the beach I was able to do a little shelling. There were a ton of shells but they are the tiny ones. I just happen to love the tiny ones. You really have to look to find them but they don't take up much space. That's a good thing.


There are wild iguanas all over the keys. Quite a bunch of them are right here in the area surrounding the park. The come out to sun themselves. I had no idea they could swim.


We had a little fender bender on the way down here. I've driven this thing over 12,000 miles and just 14 miles north of our southern most destination we ended up in a tiny parking lot with no outlet and I got the rear passenger side tangled up with a guardrail. I was so disappointed in myself. 

A couple of the other campers here in the campground did a little magic and reattached the end cap. It looks so much better but will have to be repaired. Fortunately it's only cosmetic.

  1. I got my RV tangled up with an electric pole and a stump on my own property. That was very, very expensive. I was not very happy with myself over that.

    1. Oh Dizzy, I remember when that happened. It's not a good feeling for sure.

    2. Juley,
      Would tomorrow afternoon work? We could come by around 3:30 or 4:00 if that works.

      Thanks,
      Jeff

    3. Jeff, That is perfect. We'll see you later today.
      I'm guessing you know how to find us since there is a handy, dandy map to our site above.
