Visiting Hubby in Florida

Hubby and I couldn't be apart too long, so I hopped on a plane and spent 10 hours (thanks to a airline delay while changing planes in Chicago) traveling to Palm Beach International Airport.   The 5th wheel is safely stored here in Arizona so Hubby rented a park model at the same RV park we've lived in for the past year and a half. 
Here's Hubby's new abode with our little green car parked out front.
He even has a barbecue grill and picnic table in the back.
You enter through the enclosed patio or "Florida Room."  He even has a washer and dryer so he doesn't have to go the the laundromat.  I'm jealous!  He can do his laundry in air conditioned comfort and watch TV while folding clothes.
I didn't even notice, when I rented the place for him, that there were no blinds or curtains on the windows.  You could clearly see in from the outside when the lights were on!  For an inexpensive way to keep from "flashing" the RV park (not that he really cared) he is relying on the tried and true aluminum foil.
The living room is open to the kitchen where Hubby is trying his hand at making his own meals - a new experience after 37 years!
He hasn't even ordered a pizza yet!
The man that owns the place spent a lot of money retro-fitting it for his handicapped wife, even installing a lift for her wheelchair.
I don't know what happened but the neighbors next door said the couple were there only three days before they had to leave, so everything is like new.
I snapped a few pictures around the park.  This is the pond where we had our 5th wheel parked.   It completely overflowed, flooding all the streets around it, when Hurricane Isaac came through the Gulf headed for Louisiana.  It's not going down very fast!
Maggie and I would have a little trouble finding a dry spot in the dog walk area too.
Drivers are still dealing with water in the streets.
I'm back home again (only 6 hours of travel on the return trip), expecting our 3rd grandson in less than two weeks.  The adventure continues!


  1. What a lovely home. Perfect for a temporary bachelor haha. Glad you got to have a nice visit. And another grandson that's really special.

  2. Hi Candy! Glad you got the chance to go and be with your hubby a while, well, all except the airport delays - hate that, don't you?
    What a nice place for your hubby to stay. I surely could stay there for sometime too.
    Hope you're doing well while he's away and thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  3. A few things:
    1) Soooooooo jealous of hubs' gorgeous Florida room!
    2) Your husband can accomplish anything he puts his mind to -- cooking should be no exception. I'm sure after 37 years of lessons watching you cook, he'll not be in danger of starvation.
    3) Keith's jealous of all those TVs all over the house!
    4)I still think your lil' green car is stinkin' cute!

  4. Hi Candy, What an adventure you and hubby are one-he in one state and you in the other. It looks like a wonderful park and the weather has got to be wonderful as well. I can't imagine being apart for more than a few days but a couple has to do what a couple has to do.
    Congrat's on your new grandson; we just had a new little guy 9 days ago. It is so fun, especially when I don't have to be up all night feeding a little baby.
    Have a great afternoon.
