Visiting the Kids and Grandson in Miami

 After driving for a couple of days in some crazy Florida Liquid Sunshine and a Night or two at  Flying J Truck Stops, we arrived safe and sound in the Miami area.

 Once again we scored a pretty good site here at Markam County Park. The site was paved and level, along with a large expanse of grass all around us. The park is a little pricey for a county park, but it pretty nice, in a safe area and well patrolled by both the Police and Sheriff's dept. a big plus down here.

 However our main reason for stopping off here was to visit our little Grandson, and of course mom and dad.

 Sheryl was afraid he would have forgot her, since it's been quite a while since we've seen them. As you can see, that didn't happen, he took to her right away yelling Gamma!!!

Of course there was plenty a Grandpa time too.

 One unexpected surprise was a flock of green parrots that came and went each day by our campsite. Must be unusual as our kids who have lived here for many years have never seen them.

 One other unexpected event was going on, a few of the local RC Model Boaters were out on the lake just behind us. I had never seen these type boats out on the water before, so our friend and I walked on over and struck up a conversation with them. They were telling us the boat are electric motor propelled and can reach speeds of 50 MPH and run for about 20 minutes on one charge.

  They were nice enough to let me photograph their boats, and in return I sent them a few of the better shot I got. These are just a few....................

We've enjoyed our time here visiting the kids and of course Grandson. Time is always too short, but Key West waits on no man!!! It's time to head out in the morning and spend Thanksgiving in the islands. We would have stayed here, but there's no room at the park and no safe place to put our rigs for the day while we'd be gone. The kids understood and we'll drive up and spend Christmas with them. But for now, we'll be off and running in the morning. Hope you enjoyed the photos and we'll see you back here in a couple of days..........................................


  1. Nice to spend time with family especially the grands. This is the time for making memories they will remember for the rest of their lives.
    Great pictures of the RC boats. I'm sure their owners were happy to see them.
    Enjoy the Keys and the island life.
    Be safe!

    It's about time.

    1. Thanks Rick, and your so right about making those memories.
