This morning I headed over to the beach near the South Jetty. It was a warm, foggy day. The sun came out for a little while in the afternoon, but it didn't last long before the fog started coming back.
Parking/camping/boondocking on the beach is free with a $12 annual beach permit, but I wonder if being that close to the waves and the salty air is such a good idea. The Duck is covered in salt.
I met Annie and Roxanne and their friend Chris at the RV. We sat around and talked over coffee and then went to lunch at a little cafe on Beach Street.

I enjoyed talking with others that "get it": Kindred Spirits. We have many of the same ideas about downsizing and travel, lifestyle changes, etc. You feel like you already know someone from reading their blog. Chris said she has a blog but hasn't posted anything to it in a long time, she may try to start it up again.
After lunch, I walked along the beach and then to the grocery store and took the Port A bus back to my RV.
Island life is relaxing, but I think that in February I will start heading towards Tucson. I will take my time going through Texas and New Mexico and may not get there until March. I want to go to Lazy Days RV Center in Tucson to have some remodeling work done inside the coach. I had the ideas for the remodeling from the very beginning, when I purchased the coach. I thought I would have to go back to Florida, then I found out that they opened a shop in Tucson. I was very happy with the service I received from Lazy Days RV in Florida and feel that they will do a good job at the new location.
