This is the view off my private dock.
I left home about 11:30 with everything tucked in and ready for their long summer rest:
The last thing I thought of as I nearly walked out and locked the door, was my passport. Heavens! Wouldn't that have been just ducky.
Shortly after gasing up, Gertie 11 said she needed plugging in and upon trying to do so, I couldn't. Called Lorraine figuring it was a generational thing I just couldn't manage, asking if I could stop for help. Lo & behold - it wasn't me - they sent the wrong car charger for my model:( Luckily Lorraine had an old phone charger that fit Gertie so I was off and running again. I need to get to know Gertie 11's personality before I pass judgement but was disappointed that when I took a turn she hadn't planned for me, she didn't tell me that she was going to "recalculate" it for me. This Gertie just ignores my transgression, pouts for a mile and then just proceeds as if it was all planned. She does need to learn to enunciate a little better too but I'm the one who'll probably have to just pay closer attention to her.
Went SW to visit Jim & Betty in Hudson, FL who were my neighbors the whole time I've been in FL. They moved into assisted living. We had a nice little visit.
Libby - if you're reading this, I went by "our" fabric store in Homosassa Springs on Rt. 19 on my way here. Too late to stop.
mileage: 248 travel time: about 5 hrs. not counting the visiting time
