Monday, 11/14/11 - The flurry and excitement of the weekend was over and it was back to my "regular job" here in Florida.....laying out at the pool working on my tan, oh and washing clothes. I love how they locate the laundry rooms right next to the swimming pool it makes it so easy to do both of my favorite jobs.
Here in this RV park there is a very large population of Canadians....Quebec Canadians and they ALL speak French only! Every morning on my walk I keep saying, "bon jour" to the people I meet....and pray they don't start talking to me in french. However, today I got lucky and met an American couple from Georgia and they spoke English....how refreshing that was. Juanita and Larry who have been here several days and unfortunately leave tomorrow for Fort Meyers, FL, the Gulf side of Florida. Such nice people and we had a great time visiting at the pool.
About 4 pm they came down to our place and invited to go to dinner with them at a real Irish Pub and we said, "of course." Larry grew up in the Fort Lauderdale area and they both lived here for sometime but are currently residing in Georgia. They just recently purchased a beautiful, brand new trailer and are enjoying the lifestyle of retired and travel.
Unfortunately, I don't remember the name of the Irish Pub but we had a great table and enjoyed an authentic fish and chip dinner with good conversation. Fortunately, we chose to sit inside as there was a downpour during dinner just enough to jack up the humidity here.
When we got back to the park we went inside to see their trailer and continued swapping stories of our lives.....Wills back and unfortunately Larry has the same back problem so they were very interested in Wills 2010 back story. It was a fun evening and we were so sorry they had to leave so soon. Hopefully, our paths can cross again in Florida somewhere down the line. Much love to all our family and friends.
