Meeting Fellow RVers, a Beach Picnic and Sunrises

One of the great things about this lifestyle is friends we get to meet.  We meet people face-to-face and also get acquainted as Blogger Buddies.  Pam and I drove over to Fort Pickens which is part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore to see Donna and Dennis.

It was a nice day and we just sat outside and chatted for awhile.  Nice folks and we could have stayed for hours.  But we didn't.  We hadn't met them before except passing comments back and forth over the years.

I think I first came across their blog: Cave Dwellings, about 7 or 8 years ago.  Might have been one of the first ones I started following.  They always seem to have a sense of humor and easy reading style mixed in with some real life challenges on the road.

I remember last year they returned home to Illinois after wintering in Florida.  It was still cold outside and they had a water pipe leak in the house.  Dennis aka 'MacGyver' did some troubleshooting and a whole lot of drywall repair.

When we talked for a while, Dennis was telling me about how he added a couple of outlets to this RV.  Pretty impressive.  Love being around these kind of folks - we can learn a lot.

After some good coffee and conversation, we got a quick tour of their RV.  Very nice!  We loved the floor plan and how nice it looked inside.  Could be a model -- and its a few years old.  They definitely are taking good care of it and it shows.

Next, it was time for a photo with my selfie stick
We didn't want to overstay our first time seeing these nice folks so we said our goodbyes and look forward to seeing them down the road.  We are all going to be moving around Florida this winter so who knows?

Next, it was time to hit the beach for a little while.
 Hard to beat the white beaches of Santa Rosa Island so we decided to stop and have another picnic lunch.
It wasn't exactly lay on the beach weather but it was still a beautiful day.

Next it was back to our site at Postal Point.  One thing we never get tired of is early morning sunrises over the water.
Every day is a different day.  And it never gets old.

Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!


  1. It's always nice to get together with others that share the excitement of RVing especially when they have a sense of humor like Donna has.
    Hope you car is getting repaired by this time.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. Meeting fellow bloggers and time on the beach makes a perfect day:)
