Oh what sites we see...

 Oh the sights we see!  Aren't those outfits just wonderful?  Janette has 5 layers on and Steve has 4!  During the winters, the wind and the rain have been brutal and almost tortuous, at least we think so.  We start out at 7:15 and complete the cleaning around 12:15.  I so wanted to post the beautiful bathrooms we find in this journey, however, we didn't want to enjoy the sight so much.  Some mornings are the grossest you ever want to see and sometimes we are really blessed to see rigs like this!
 This rig is carrying a smart car and a dune buggy and towing the Grand Junction.  What a sight to come upon!  We have seen the other day, 2 Semi-trucks with huge RV sleepers on them!  Oh wonderful to be able to do your job and carry your house with you!  Umm, that's what work campers do as well!  Pretty kewl! 
 Pensacola beach, we were driving along the beach road and we had taken the road before, but admittedly it really skeered us when we came here because we had no idea where we were headed!  Well, it's been 4 months and we decided that we would find out where the road went and here it is!  It is the land of plenty of houses and plenty of boats, plenty of churches and eateries!
We have really loved where we have been, everyday is different in weather, in people, in things done or to do.  

We have enjoyed the beach again, in fact, it is warm enough to - no not jump in, but it is warm enough to take your shoes off and walk along the beach and enjoy the surf and the calming of your mind and realize that if the water has that much power in the waves, how much more does he have for us?  

We followed another road the other day, it tooks us hither and beyond, but we came up along a trail that took us down a huge hill by way of a boardwalk!  At the bottom of it were the tracks and the beach of Santa Rosa Inlet.  I know it's not called that, but off the top of my head I can't remember. 
It took us about a mile up hill and down and we turned around and went back! 
We were so out of breath by the time we arrived back at the top!  It felt so good!
Within the next month, we celebrate birthdays of plenty!  Our youngest and oldest daughters celebrate big birthdays, 3 of the 5 grandchildren celebrate their birthdays in the next month and a little beyond!  God has been good to all of us!
So, here are the pics I said I would put up, along with a different story line. 
We had a nice surprize when we were in the office today, it seems that a date was changed on our outgoing time and our incoming time.  We didn't change this ourselves.  We got here and started working on Sept. 25 and we signed up for 6 mo.  So, March 25 is our last day.  Well, somehow this changed to April 15th, I said, oh no, it's the 25th of March.  
We have signed up for a pastor's conference with Perry Stone in April and we have a much needed time off to take hold of God's plan for us.  
So, soon you will see lots more photos and maybe just maybe you will be in the Smokies with us!  
Until next time, may you be blessed and your light shine bright! 

Trust and VIPKID travels!
