We both slept in today and did not get up until just after 8:00am this morning. So, of course, the pictures I am seeing of today's sunset are all beautiful and colorful.
After connecting with Patsy, Chillin' with Patsy we stopped over to see her and Bill. Suzie and George stopped over and we had a nice visit. Both Bill and George gave Tom some needed advice on our water bladder and pump choices. In fact, George, Our Awesome Travels, had a extra used pump he gifted us with by saying, here I have just what you need. Then he explained to Tom how to hook it up and offered to help do so after explaining what else we would need to use it.
What a great community we have joined since we started this lifestyle. Everyone is always so willing to help out when ever and where ever needed. The best part is no one ever says this is what you have to do. Everyone just shares what worked for them and if you have questions they are willing to answer and help. We found information and suggestions on our blog from last night and even had one person message me after she could not get her comment to publish to let us know what they use and how it works. It makes us feel so good about the decision we made to start snowbirding at this point in our lives and grateful for the people we have met along the way. We would be remiss not to mention our family and good friends back home that have been there when we needed help while we are across the country. We had one friend fix a water leak our daughter discovered, my brother fixed a second one, friends have made sure our daughter and her children got home safe when she developed car trouble, and just today my brother said he would take care of a storm door the neighbor texted Tom about that is flapping in the wind. We both feel very blessed to have the people we have in our lives.
Just as we were getting ready to leave Deb and Riley of On a long and lonesome highway....who were out on a hike stopped by to say hello. As we really had to get going it was a short encounter but we hope to get to see them again and spend more time together. In the meantime we will be checking out their blog.
Standing there watching the light leave and watching the clouds on the right
I kept thinking they look angry that the sun had left us behind.

color in the sky.
"Happiness is not measured by the amount of money you have.
It is measured by the wonderful people in you life."
This, without a doubt, was a wonderful day. Hope yours was too.
