Merry Christmas to All
It’s Christmas weekend, the most wonderful time of the year.
Thank you for reading our camping blogs this past year!
Best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a safe and happy holiday season.
May the miracle of this wonderful season fill your heart with peace and happiness and bless your life throughout the year.
As we approach Christmas Eve we’re on the Alabama Gulf Coast enjoying balmy Gulf breezes, discovering the beauty and diversity of the area, and indulging the palate in fresh from the Gulf shrimp, oysters, and native fish.
For me, the ultimate experience of camping and RVing requires a camera. Without a camera I bring home memories. With a camera, I bring home a series of images of the memories that I can return to over and over and share with readers of my posts. Memories become more complete and permanent through photos.
The 2011 National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-Associated Recreation released this week by the U.S. Census Bureau showed that 71.8 million people participated in at least one type of wildlife-watching activity, such as observing, feeding, and photographing wildlife.
Merry Christmas and Seasons Greetings to all!
Forget sugar plums!
When you drift off to sleep tonight,
I’ll be dreaming of fabulous RV destinations I’d love to visit,
Acadia, Mount Rainier, and Yellowstone national parks
Sweet dreams and happy holidays!
Cranky as the RV space heater,
I groan and grumble in pre-dawn chill,
wait for the coffee pot to finish playing
reveille to my numb mind.
Shuffling around the RV Park,
Snowbirds and Winter Texans make mischief,
cackling like contented
chickens under the Arizona sun.
A grateful respite from grueling
gray cold fronts of International Falls,
Winnipeg, and Green Bay.
Amid chants of Go Packers Go!
A time of celebration and decoration
Christmas lights, ornaments, nativity scenes,
Wal-Mart Santas and reindeer
A plastic Jesus or two adorn motorhomes,
fifth wheel trailers, and old converted buses.
Christmas Eve, wrinkled faces gather
in the clubhouse by the artificial tree
reminiscing of Christmases past during simpler times
speaking of children in childish voices.
May the joy of today, bring forth happiness for tomorrow—and may the cold Alberta air stay up north!
