Time here in Florida is getting short for us. WE are residents of Florida but just cannot shake the roots back in North Carolina. My family has never been much to decorate the sacred graves of our family but Sherry has. She wants flowers on her parent’s graves at Christmas and Easter. So we will head north before The Celebration of Easter.
(The Lennie, Collette and Sherry decorated that grave for many years, now Sherry is the only living daughter, so she does it. This is Sherry, her dad, and Mark and Jack, a couple (?) years back)
When we lived in Tavares on Lake Dora our home was hit with three hurricanes. We didn’t lose much, but it was worrisome. We had a neighbor that lost their entire roof, therefore most of the contents. So that was always a concern when we were out gallivanting around. Once we sold in Tavares, we felt more freedom to roam further, and did.
It is hard to tell, but the pier was raised 6 inches on the left. And below is the sea wall we lost.
So before we leave for Easter I want to do some things to prepare our (new to us) place in Deltona. The house is no worry, it has weathered MANY hurricanes since 1960. It is the additions of the privacy fence and large gates I installed for the motor home that I need to protect. We might be wandering off in the distance. If so, I do not want to be worrying unnecessarily about the storm damage.
Departure date is still a couple weeks off, but we are still on vacation for another week. LOL So that gives us only 5 days to prep the home in Deltona.
As I mentioned we will be attending a wedding. It is a couple of our senior friends here in Florida. We have learned to love these two and are glad for them. It is a privilege to be invited to join a small private ceremony.
We have a busy social life. LOL
Thanks for stopping by the Shipslog, I appreciate it.
