Lake Wales – Feb 2021 Update

February 27, 2021

As my brother so correctly pointed out, this travel blog has sort of become more of a Lake Wales Home Base blog, rather than a travel blog.  But given the circumstances, there’s not a whole lot I can do.  Still way too much virus going around, and most places to visit have limited attendance.  I […]

A new month, in a new year has arrived.  Difficult to believe that another month has passed, but so goes the time.  It was a crazy month, filled with highs and lows, and also marked the arrival of the Florida citrus season.  All the orange groves around us are now filled with bright orange fruit.  […]

While parked for lunch in downtown Lakeland, a Blue Heron decided to take a closer look at my truck.  Maybe he was planning on hitching a ride somewhere?  Not sure, but he eventually moved on.  Another month has come and gone here in Lake Wales, FL.  It’s been a busy month as usual, with continuation […]

Lake Wales, FL – First Impressions

August 30, 2020

Well, I’ve been here at the new Home Base for just about three weeks now.  I’m not fully settled in, but I’m certainly making great progress.  I’ve repurchased many of the things I had gotten rid of when I sold my house over five years ago – like a lawn mower, edger, blower, and an […]

Boerne, TX – I’m Done (for now)

July 28, 2020

It has been a wonderful 4 weeks here in Boerne, TX visiting with a long lost friend and playing tourist (well, as much as possible given this pandemic).  As has been the case pretty much throughout my nomadic journey thus far, time seems to fly by while I’m having fun.  But alas, my time here […]
