Personal Priorites


I’m still at Dauphin Island but I have moved to a different RV park. The Dauphin Island campround, on the East end, is a beautiful campground. I moved because there were things beyond their control which required me to move. I don’t do well in heat and I came down too early so that’s a challenge no matter where I am on the island. However, some areas, where there are hardly any trees, have a strong breeze every day. When there is a strong breeze it counteracts the heat of the day and eliminates mosquitos. The East end campground is a lovely wooded area. It gets a breeze on days where it is truly windy but, if the wind is not blowing hard, there is no breeze in the campground and the mosquitos take full advantage of the stillness all day long. I’m use to mosquitos at night or early morning but when I cannot go the public bathroom, take a shower, or sit outside at any time of day, I am unhappy. The new location, which is just past the trees on the island, has a breeze every day, all day so no mosquitos and days which feel less hot to me. The spaces are a little tighter; this use to be a parking lot for a restaurant. And, even though I like space & trees, I like being able to go outside even more. 🙂


Every day I’ve been driving to the Public beach because there are Pavilions in which I can sit and feel a strong breeze while I read, write, or just enjoy the sounds and sights of the scenery. The Public beach is directly across from my new RV location. Now, I can walk across the road and I’m in my favorite place!

I moved in yesterday afternoon. It was raining off/on but it held off during my moving. The Universe can be so lovely about these things. 🙂 Today, it is supposed to rain the majority of the day and it is raining now. The breeze here is strong enough I actually felt the RV move a little bit sometimes last night. I feel safe though. I do need to put some blocks under my stabilizing jacks because they are buried in water today. The ruts, from RVs pulling in/out, holds water and that’s where my jacks have landed. I will take care of that tomorrow when it is not raining. I will also need to rinse my jacks off because I’m told the water around here will eat and rust metal really quickly. I’ve seen evidence in looking at people’s vehicles.

The people here are really helpful and nice! The campers (a total of 12 RVs at any time) are equally friendly. I do like the smaller setup. The wifi can reach to my RV though a booster will make it less variable. There is a covered porch, with comfortable chairs, where I can sit next to the wifi and work or play on the Internet and sometime next month the owners will clear out the office area and allow us campers to go in there whenever we like to play games, build puzzles, use the Internet, or chat. I’m amazed they are going to give us keys to the building. That’s extremely nice of them.

While I need to make a grocery run, I will wait until tomorrow so I know the stores will be open and it won’t be raining. Today, is a good day to read, write on this blog, and relax. Living in the RV has made me think a lot about a dream life and what I want for a dream life. I haven’t pinned it down yet. What does your dream life look like? Are you living your dream life? What do you really need in order to acquire your dream life?
