I have to pinch myself now and again to realize this is late December and that I am no longer running in the rat race! Every new experience is gripping, every new encounter is interesting and there is no pressure to be here or there on some schedule, or to do this or that by a certain time. It is wonderful!
Let me describe the Airstream 34, how it functions and feels for us to be living in it... It is about 8 feet wide and 35 feet long and has eight large windows that open , awning style, allowing the breezes to float through the interior, even on a rainy day. There are two skylights that add to the bright and airy feel of the interior and three ceiling fans (two Fantastic Fans). Everything in the Airstream came through the one door, so replacing interior components will not be hard, once they wear out. There are 5 canvas awnings around the exterior, covering windows and the door side and one fixed awning over the panorama window of the front. They give the whole environment the feel of a french cafe - and the coffee here is always good!
Inside the Airstream the fixtures are oil rubbed bronze and the cabinets and their bases are real wood, hickory! No laminates for this domain - the Airstream is built to last. The interior has a yacht-like feel. The galley is well equipped but I am just learning to use the convection aspect of a convection microwave...there is a doorbell ! The two small steps out the door are easy for the dogs (and their owners) to manage. It is cozy inside - we have an entertainment centre that includes music, DVD and TV (two of them - rarely used) integrated into the interior with speakers hidden where you least expect it. There is a full bathroom where I can wash off the sea salt at the end of the day.
Tomorrow is another day and we can't wait for it....
