Our newest adventure started yesterday for the next 3 weeks we will be doing house hunting for NORMALS with a modest budget. Traveling through different areas of Florida staying 3-4 days in each area. We are in Orlando checked out Celebration (again)absolutely a very nice area but not for me, also can not see myself flying in and out of Orlando once a month. Today we head to the Villages to spend a week to see if it’s the right fit for us, looking forward to seeing Neil, Jo, Mike and Doreen, I think we miss Donna and Mike in Punta Gorda area by a day.

A nice adventure! You are right to spend time in various areas. Once you decide on an area have you considered renting for awhile? That's my advice ...only you will know if it is a good fit...how the day to day 'feels' is a good experince before you buy. Enjoy and hugs to you both!

We're looking forward to seeing y'all in Old Florida this weekend! When you hear the banjos, you'll know you're home!

Punta Gorda is beautiful, lots of palm trees and the Gulf. Let me know if you have any questions, we lived there for 1 1/2 years. Lots of pros and cons.
