The Fabulous Florida Keys and Christmas Preparations in the Little RV

Since my last post we finished up our month in paradise and have moved to Lake Worth, Florida. We loved every minute of our time in Marathon and Grassy Key.
It was almost painful to leave. Our friend Nan took this photo of us. We went to Key West with Nan and her husband Ron. We rented a four seat electric car to tour the town so that Rob could enjoy seeing the sights without all of the walking. It was a great way to see the area.

There was no shortage of subjects to photograph. This iguana was even willing to pose for me one afternoon. 

Nan and I went to the Dolphin Research Center one afternoon. There are dozens of dolphins in residence there and they work with them constantly. Visitors can go and watch casual training sessions and the interactions between the trainers, interns and the dolphins. It's amazing how intelligent these creatures are. 

And those sunsets...

But time marches on and November came to an end ten days ago. Christmas is coming fast and I'm just not ready. 

I have done all of the decorating I can do in our tiny space. The tree is up and a garland hangs in the front window. 

Gifts for all seven of our grandchildren have been purchased and shipped. That's it! That's all I have done so far and with only 13 days left until the big day I'd better get with it. 

On January 1st we head for the West coast of Florida where the shelling is amazing and I plan to spend a the month treasure hunting. 

If I don't manage another blog post before Christmas, have a great one and an even better new year!
