Saturday Nights in the Summer

Thousand Trails has so many more activities in the summer months and we have enjoyed taking advantage of some of them. Tonight we went down to hear live music and as I sat and watched the people I was so touched by some of the things I saw. Daddies dancing with their little girls, husbands slow dancing with their wives, women and the few rare men line dancing, a man next to me opening beer bottles with his teeth and kids of all ages getting to dance and run and play in that way that only kids can do. At the risk of sounding cheesy, I thought it was beautiful.

Sometimes I hear so much negative about our world and the state that it is in that it can be scary to imagine my grandchildren growing up in it. Then I sit and watch people on a night like tonight and remember that people can still enjoy the simple things in life and love and enjoy each other. It put a smile on my face and made my heart sing along with the great music.

Living the life in California!

Hi -- Just catching up on your blog and enjoying your pictures and experiences as always. Wanted to say congratulations on "re-upping" as FullTimers. One year just isn't enough; glad you're still having fun.
