Here we are in February already! Time to get things caught up, but before we start 2017 I thought we should at least finish up the previous year. I believe my last blog was back in October.
We were headed to Kentucky. We stayed in Salvisa, KY while Linda worked in Danbury, KY. We actually had trick or treaters while there and some of Linda’s family came to visit.
In November we traveled to LaGrange, GA. We had a quiet Thanksgiving with lots to be thankful for.
After Thanksgiving comes Linda’s ‘birthday month’ and she wanted to stick her toes in the sand so we headed to a campground in Summerdale, AL. This was close to the Gulf Shores. We were able to make a quick trip so that she could indeed stick her toes in the sand.
Linda needed to work in Selma, AL after that so we stayed at an AC campground in Lowndesboro, AL. This is the first time we stayed at an Army Corp of Engineers campground. I was impressed. Well maintained with lots of room between sites. Some do not have full hook-ups but their facilities are decent. The general rule is that you can only stay at one site for 14 days. Then you have to either leave or go to another site that is available. Because it was a slow time of the year we didn’t have to move and we celebrated both Christmas and New Years there.
So that is how we spent the end of the year. Just to recap, these are the places we stayed and visited in 2016:
January: Townsend, GA; Walterboro, SC; Beaufort, SC

March: Birmingham, AL; Crestview, FL; DeFuniak Springs, FL; Pensacola, FL

August: Adrian, MI; Ann Arbor, MI
September: Lebanon, OH; Cincinnati, OH; Cornersville, TN; Troy, AL
October: Cornersville, TN; Salvisa, KY; Danville, KY
November: McDonald, TN; LaGrange, GA
December: Summerdale, AL; Lowndesboro, AL; Selma, AL
We have been traveling quite a bit around the Southeast. Some places might have only been for one night. Others places we stayed a week and some a month or two. We have been very fortunate in our travels and are thankful.
Last year found Linda back in the hospital for another operation. She has recovered with thanks to family and friends. We pray that 2017 finds her healthy and staying out of the hospital!
Though we were greatly blessed we did suffer some sad moments in 2016. We lost both our traveling buddies / fur babies. Nicky passed away in August and Maureen passed away in December. We miss them both so much.
We pray for continued blessings and favor for the New Year. Not only for us but also for our family, friends and those we meet along the road.
So now on we go to 2017!
