When the kids were little we once took them to Six Flags over Georgia. Then upon our return from Cuba, we took them to Disney World. Then later as teens we took them to Carowinds near Charlotte. For the life of me I cannot remember much about the parks, BUT it musta been fun. To be honest here (as much as I can) I had to ask Sherry, I only remembered 6 Flags over Georgia.
Then I turned to Sherry and said, “I think you and I went to Six Flags of Texas once.”
“You know, you are right, we did do that one summer.” She said, a little embarrassed that she had not remembered. (Usually she remembers it all, no joke, she has a fantastic memory.)
Every time we head south to Florida, we take I-77 and pass Carowinds. This time I noticed a HIGH and long Roller Coaster, That must be a thrill for the young folk, but NOT for this guy. that sucker looks scary!
So here we are, near Orlando, close enough to hear the fireworks they have every night and of course we are absolutely TOO OLD to go. Universal Studios is big also. There is a neat walk thru place called, “Holy Land Experience” for the folk who are religiously inclined. Jack Jr. once came down to Florida and took us to see it. The place was interesting and a change of pace from the Theme Park experiences.
So if we don’t plan to enjoy the tourist stuff available in this over priced area, Why are we here? Short Story: We joined an “RV Park Association”, once we pay our yearly dues, we stay at any of the 80 RV parks at no additional cost. For us, it is a real deal because we will use the membership a lot since we live full-time in this coach. We don’t mind being mistaken for ‘Tourists’.
I have said many times, we enjoy the natural beauties of the world the most, bit do not mind seeing the things humans have added. However most every thing pales to ‘The Grand Canyon’, the Arches,the Rocky Mountains, a desert, a cave, a whole ocean, snorkeling over a coral reef and Niagara Falls.
Desert and ocean sunsets can never be matched with paint and canvas or even a camera.
Nothing captures and holds beauty better than a memory.
