Rapunzel's Big Adventure

Beren and I have just started a little adventure I'd like to share with you. Thanks to a job project up here in north Florida, we will be spending about 6 weeks up here at the Ormond house, and in the vicinity. I've taken a short leave from my job, packed up Loki and arranged for Kali, Lily & Bambi to share in the cat care responsibilities. We plan to go back & forth on some weekends but for the most part this is where we'll be calling Home.

Beren's job project is actually in St Augustine, about 45 minutes from Ormond Beach. With that in mind, Beren decided to make one of our dreams come true: he bought a motorhome. (You can see the pic in yesterday's post). This will enable us to stay near the job site whenever we feel like it, allow us to have Loki with us, and give me a wonderful opportunity to explore the area while Beren is working. As you can imagine, I'm absolutely thrilled at the idea!

We actually drove to Savannah, GA to pick up the RV, a really quick road trip up & back, only stopping for lunch at the historic Pirates House.

Skulls on the Bar

Fried Green Tomato Salad, delicious!

Unfortunately we found a little problem with the RV and it needed to be taken in for repairs. As soon as it's ready we'll be picking it up and parking it in St Augustine. In the meantime, we've been visiting bars, restaurants and campgrounds in the area in preparation for our Big Adventure. Kali, Lily & Jesus came up this past weekend to help us! *wink*

Oh, Savannah! The shrimp and grits at the Pirate House is awesomeness. Hope you're having fun in Ormond!
