Christmas is Just 2 Days Away!

Yesterday and today and probably tomorrow we will have to have the furnace on to keep us toasty. A cold front moved in ! By Christmas eve it will be back to low 70's F and low 60's F at night. We are planning a day trip to the Beaches along the gulf coast further east of here, Pensacola, Walton and Destin beaches. At Destin beach there is a campground right on the beach and we want to check that out to see if it has full hook-ups - we may visit there in April when we leave here.

Richard was fishing the other day and caught two whiting fish in the surf. The conditions have to be just so to be able to get something in the surf - it keeps pounding on the line and pushing it back to you; small fish sometimes nibble on the bait; and sometimes the bigger fish run away with the bait, pole and all, and you lose your investment!

We are planning a trip to Camping World today for some RV supplies...and on the way we will stop in to the Tanger Outlet Malls - there is a coupon for 80% off at one of our favourite stores so we will check it out...This morning here is warmer than yesterday (about 50 F) but windy and overcast so not a great day for beachcombing!

This morning on FOX news I heard that 70,000 homes per month in the US are in complete foreclosure (meaning the residents have vacated) and that number is expected to keep rising...A sad situation for this time of year. There are so many vacation rental properties here and yesterday we met a couple from Nova Scotia who have rented a condo, steps from the beach for a reasonable rate.

Merry Christmas to all ! This is Lil Jul Aften (little Christmas eve) in Denmark!
