The Convertible Club Makes Wine
When the newsletter for The Villages Convertible Club came out and I saw that there was a day trip to a make-it-yourself winery, I thought "where do I sign up?"   Over a period of two days there were eight different groups from the club (because we are 700 ...

The Convertible Club Does the Mt. Dora Christmas Walk
There's nothing like going to look at Christmas lights while driving around with your top down.  (insert very big grin) In December, one of our scheduled Convertible Club trips was to the annual Mt. Dora Christmas Walk.  The city blocks off several blocks o...

A Day Brightener
Our youngest son, Darby aka The Darb, flew down from Columbus, Ohio last week to visit.  He was looking forward to a week of sunshine, shorts and exploration.  What he got was record breaking cold temperatures, rain and wind.  The only good news was that ou...

It almost felt like we were back on the road again!

Polo!!!  Yes indeed, at The Villages we have polo.  The real deal.  And like most every place in TV, it's golf cart accessible.  Who'da thunk it when we moved here? The polo season here at TV runs from March through May and then again in October through Nov...

Playing Catch up
I've added three posts tonight, one of which is current, two of which are not.  I've gotten out of the blogging habit and it's hard to jump back on the bandwagon now that our life on wheels is in a golf cart instead of a RV.  But jump back to December 6 and...

Hi Barbara!  I've heard nothing but good things about the Villages Charter School.  The Lifelong Learning College (the Villages version of adult night school) holds its classes at the school and the students seem to be quite involved there.  Living in The Villages is hard to describe to folks, other than you can be as active as you like, or you can just live here and enjoy the company of your friendly neighbors, but if you get bored here, there has to be something wrong with you!  Perhaps we'll see you down here someday!

How They Do a Christmas Parade in The Villages
There is no easy way to describe life in The Villages. That was made clear to me when we attended our very first Christmas parade here.  We arrived an hour early to find we were almost late for finding a good spot but find one we did, albeit at the very end...

Story

along with husband Denny are known as the RV Vagabonds
Introduction
RV Vagabonds:  Denny and I purchased our first motorhome on a whim in 1993 and decided after our first week-long journey to investigate the idea of full-time rving when we retired. In 1998 we hit the road, looking for cheap campgrounds located close to golf courses, wandering the red roads (red lines on state maps) and looking for adventure. When we eat out, we avoid chain restaurants, preferring the "mom and pop" places or any locally owned restaurant instead. We're attracted to museums, oddball attractions, national parks and anyplace on or near water and/or mountains. We love our life on wheels.

That being said, after fifteen (!) years of life on the road, Denny and I have purchased a house in The Villages and have sold Black Beauty and The Beast.  And so a new lifestyle begins...
