Missed Mardi Gras

Manatee Hammock on the Indian River
Space Coast , Florida
That is the Cape Kennedy or Cape Canaveral Vehicle Assembly Building in the distance. 


It's hard to believe that while I am shivering at 64F degrees this morning, later today is supposed to be a record breaking weather day with a high of 87F degrees for Titusville, Florida. Tomorrow the high is expected to be 67F degrees.     Very strange weather all around for February. 


I need to answer some questions from gentle readers...


Where are you? Did you make Mardi Gras? on Wordless Wednesday February 23 from Anonymous


No, my driver got us lost again. We made a wrong turn and ended up in Melbourne, Florida. 


Exhausted, we tried to rent an RV spot at Wickham Park, (Melbourne, Florida) but they were full.  So we ended up in the overflow camping area which has no utilities. It's not much of a bargain, but it kept us off the streets. Luckily, I've been slowly prepping the motorhome for this possibility of dry camping. I just wish I had a solar panel again.  For 12 years or so I had a solar panel on my sailboat that I lived aboard. It provided all my electrical needs. 


Anyhow, at the overflow lot, we were fine and survived without the umbilical cords. Temperatures did plummet enough that we needed to run the propane furnace, but the blower runs off 12volt which is attached to the house battery, so puppy and I were able to warm up. I do have a small inverter which enables me to run a few things off 110.  The inverter draws on the 12 volt house battery. 


I am now between Port St John and Titusville, Florida at the only campground within 100 miles that had any vacancy, and only because they had a cancellation.  I didn't go back to the prairie because I am having some serious medical problems, so for now, it's better if I am closer to help. 


Don't worry, be happy.


I will be fine and good as new soon. 


By the way, I am very proud of this Grey Heron picture.  Yes!  I took it with my own little fingers and camera.

Nice heron!

Sorry to hear of your temporary downturn, and I'm a little relieved that your physically taxing workamping position has ended. Thinking good thoughts of your quick improvement.

The grey heron picture is beautiful, you should be proud since it looks like something you would see in National Geographic. Why are all of the campgrounds so full? Is it the retirees living down there for the winter or what?
I am sorry you still are feeling so bad. You sounded like you were on the mend for awhile there. I hope it makes you feel better that I read your blog daily and am envious of your RV lifestyle. I also visit Amazon through your website with hopes that every little bit helps!

Sorry you're not feeling well at all. My thoughts & prayers are with you. That's a gorgeous picture! You should sell prints of it!!! Or at least postcards or something if it doesn't enlarge well for a little extra cash. :)
