I realized the other day that I haven’t posted in quite some time. Well spring break and summer are just around the corner and The Traveling Wilbury’s (that’s us) will be hitting the road again. Gone is the sailboat. Drop, drop, tears hit the floor. However, never fear we have our land yacht and a plan!
First of all, I am way behind on posting.
On May 17th we took off to the Dunellen Trail. This was a nice, but short (about 2.5 miles) ride; worth the trip. I took some great pictures and this is what I wanted to share today. What better subjects than what we see on our journeys.
Since my surgery and the cold weather we haven’t gotten to do a lot biking. But a break in the chill creates a brief opportunity to visit the Greenway. Jim gave Kaelin the go ahead to be the leader today. And of course where does he head us – the playground. The best part of many bike trails is the playground and the Greenway in Ocala is no exception. This playground is very popular. A wonderful stop for a little boy to burn off energy, a mom and dad to rest, and of course photo opportunities.
Just taking a break, Mom!
2 miles / post surgery / very sore but so glad I did it.
Some changes are in the making. First, Jim is going to sell Hot Dot. However, never fear, sailing is still in our future. (I’m so relieved, I do truly love it.) He has suggested we buy a smaller sailboat, one we can take out more frequently. His thoughts are we could go day sailing at the many lakes nearby or perhaps even go on a weekender. We won’t be able to do anymore 48 day sailing trips, but I think this could work. It would be nice to say on an unexpected sunny weekend, “Hey, let’s go sailing.” And then just go! At this moment he is working on building a website (www.sailboathotdot.com) to put information about Hot Dot out there. So more to come on that…..
Another change will be all about my photos on this site. My wonderful husband (aka Santa) brought me an awesome DLSR Nikon D3100 camera. It is fantastic. Little by little I am learning more and more how to use it. I hope to take a class sometime in the future. What fun. Now if the weather would warm up (I’m not as hearty as a blogger I just found is) and I could continue healing from a recent surgery we could hit the bike trails and I could take REALLY good pictures!
And the last change….well I’m not going to say much, except that June could be an important month.

So yes, I’m finally playing with the blog site again! New camera, new chances for blog material.
