Losing signal already.  Next place in just over 3 weeks will be much more "user friendly".   Will give more updates then.  

 

Take care everyone, and be safe!   I am looking for bears right now.  😮😉 

Thanks for checking in.

Great day for me, saw my Oncologist for my exit interview, I'm now 6 months cancer free, Yeah! 

That's fantastic news!  Congrats.  Those checkups are an emotional roller coaster.  Keep kicking cancer's a$$.

Got lucky and snagged a signal on my phone to connect to wifi...but not sure how long it will last.  

Wanted to let everyone know I am still alive and kicking and not eaten by wolves.  😄 

 

Typical lake woods cabin complete with "pea shooter" over fireplace.  Mr. Moose greeted us on arrival. Bird feeders went up right away (but only getting Hummingbirds right now).   Lake is steps from cabin.  Big four poster cedar log bed has nice view.

Looks lovely,  do you have use of the boat?

Edit to say that your next post says you're not using the boat 

Great views though

here’s our balcony off the master suite…the master suite is the entire 3rd floor37B7AA4A-657F-4F2B-A1CB-89878E567760.thumb.jpeg.0585afa7a73b3a612b2ccd569167865e.jpeg

 

Nice.  Great view.  I'd be spending a LOT of time on that balcony.  Remind me...what town did you end up choosing?  Distance to the beach?  Distance to the nearest cruise port? 😄

New Port Richey, FL, just north west of Tampa. The Tampa port is 20 miles away 🙂

 

funny you ask about the beach…we went and saw the private beach we pay for in our HOA

its one mile from our house and has 20 cabanas090DE92C-6759-42F2-B934-C6D32647C457.thumb.jpeg.8fb86b2f5ac506ebb27e171d2371197b.jpeg

We are back from our first post pandemic cruise on the Edge.

Will update but have a lot of reading to catch up on first. It was a fantastic cruise. 

I was planning to check in while on the cruise but did not have a chance to because: 

1. Was enjoying so much that I kept saing “will do later....” and never got around to it.

2. DH said that the internet speed sucked and there was some outage for a couple of days....so did not try.

 

So much speculation and many made up stories aka pot stirring on CC about protocols......things were different on board.  I will elborate later.

Not the most modern or super clean house, unlike the rest of the places we have been to (which very clean and move in ready)...had to do some major cleaning and organizing when we got here...quite an array of cluster mess. 😮   But this cabin was built in the 50s I think, showing years of use and some neglect of being a rental and seasonal cottage. But,  Bucky loves puttering, cleaning, organizing and fixing things anyway.  Keeps him from getting bored.  😉   Took me awhile to organize the kitchen and find actual matching dishware, plus pots and pans I could be comfortable using.  😄 

 

Had a nice morning paddle yesterday in the kayaks provided here, won't use the boat and motor.  (she charges way too much for the nasty thing).   Very, very quiet here down a mile long 2 track.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

They charge extra to use the boat?   Looks like nice area and great place to kayak.  Enjoy!

Speaking of rentals, I had a phone call from my tenant at our shore house.  Called in a panic because she couldn't find the can opener.  I told her to look in various kitchen drawers as there was definitely was one there, I bought a new one in June.  

Called back was very rude cursing at me.   I called my neighbor who took her one.   But Wow!  What a meltdown she had over a can opener.   Neighbor said she was a total b***** 

Not renting to her again!

Me too.  Not into dead animal heads for decorations.  😄 

I like the looks of the moose head (I also like Moose Head beer 🍺) in the cabin. The rustic look.

We’ve been up in Lake Tahoe for several days now and because of the fire that’s about 10 miles from here, the sky has been very hazy and smoky.  Just yesterday it started to clear a bit.

This morning you can finally see the sun rising.

 You're "excused" -- good reason provided 😉

 

I was just about to give you a "shout", hoping that you're enjoying so much, no time for "us" 😁

 

Will be also nice if @cruise wizard will visit and tell us about his B2B2B 🌺

 

Some of us live "precariously" through your stories....

I remember in a cottage on Bailey Island turning off the light every night and staring into the eyes of a very sad deer. 
Every night! Not conducive to a good night’s sleep. 
A little thing like grimy corners, mismatched dishes, and sketchy pots and pans will keep me from ever feeling comfortable in a rental. It only happened once, but we left early. 
Your lake view from the bed would make up for a lot, though.
