Huguenot Park

 Monday March 31…10:45pm

We slept in this morning…we didn’t get up until 8am because we didn’t get to sleep until late last night. After breakfast, we went and parked near a condo building where I could get internet access. It was calm and warm already so Ruth went for a bike ride along the beach.

Sterling Casino Cruise

Sunday March 30…11:55pm

Got up fairly early and went for a bike ride. We have to do this kind of thing either very early or late in the day because of having to leave our dog Whiskey locked up in the motorhome. And it gets too hot in the Florida sun to be able to do that during midday. Anyhow, we did 17 km’s (10 miles) and made it back by 9:45am in time to say goodbye to Alex before he left for Watertown.

Last day at West Palm Beach

Saturday March 29…9:30pm

This morning, Alex’s team played their last game before they fly home tomorrow at 1:30pm. But they ended their spring training in a good way. They beat the Fort Lauderdale Superstars 4-2. Alex played a great game, making a fantastic catch near the foul pole in left field, and also went 2-4 at the plate with a single, a double, and an RBI.

Back in West Palm Beach

Friday March 28…10:00pm

We had a really nice stay at John Prince park. We’ll have to remember to keep our eyes open for more of these county run parks while we’re heading north over the next few weeks.

John Prince Park Campground

Thursday March 27…9:00pm

Well Kevin’s taking a break from the journal tonight, so it’s my turn to give you today’s news. Despite the campground being beside a small airplane airport we had no problem with noise last night. This is really a pretty park.

Back in West Palm Beach

Wednesday March 26…11:45pm

Finally made it across to the Palm Beach mall this morning. It’s a big mall right across the street from the Best Western on Palm Beach Lakes Blvd where Alex’s team is staying. They have a Macy’s and a Dillards, and a

Miami Beach

Tuesday March 25…10:30pm

We had an uneventful night at the Micosukee Casino. Slept well though as it was fairly cool…temperature at the bedside in the morning was 14C (58F), so it was comfortable.

Back in Miami area

Monday March 24…7:00pm

Got on the road about 10:00am for the approximately 2 hour drive to Miami-Dade College. It’s back closer to Miami where the casino was that we stayed at a few days ago. So we’ve already been to this area and we’re backtracking now, but it gives us a chance to go into Miami Beach area which we never got to do earlier.

Sunday March 23…10:30pm

Well it rained…all day today! We manged to get out of the motorhome for all of about 45 minutes to take Whiskey for a walk. Obviously Alex’s baseball games were cancelled. So we read our books and relaxed. Taught Alex how

Saturday March 22…9:45pm

Alex’s team played a double header today. They won the first game 3-1, and lost the second game 2-0. Their team hitting was terrible. In 14 innings, they got just 1 hit….a solo home run. Alex went 0-1 at the plate in the first game

Back in West Palm Beach

Friday March 21…9:30pm

Went for a nice bike ride before leaving. Went in behind where those expensive houses and yachts were parked in the pictures I posted from yesterday. I figured that if your house and boat are so expensive, there’s got

Back in Fort Lauderdale

Thursday March 20…9:45pm

Quiet day today…got ourselves back up to Fort Lauderdale and parked in our free spot near the beach. Spent an hour or so in the sun, and then walked down the main drag to have a closer look at how the rich people live.

Miccosukee Casino

Wednesday March 19…9:35pm

Very quiet night last night. Didn’t hear any road noise, and it was totally peaceful until we were awoken by some strange sounding bird.

Midway Campground

Tuesday March 18…10:30pm

Another great sleep. Headed out about 10:00am and tried to get internet at the nearby Indian “village”, but nothing available…so we headed further west towards the Midway campground on the road back towards Naples. Still no

Monday March 17…7:45pm

Had a great sleep last night. We’re thinking that Ruth and I might stop back at this nice little parking spot in Fort Lauderdale on our way back through to see Alex later this week.
