Wakie,Wakie, time to pull in the slideouts, don't you just hate it when someone pulls you out of bed, early in the morning, especially when you got to bed last night at midnight….. well, that's what happened to me this morning. Dad needed to get Winnie to the garage to have an oil and filter change, the garage was just across the car park so that was simple. So it was rise and shine early for the Johnson family to get Winnie to the garage. That means we have to get out of Winnie….where will we go???? Ok, while I was getting booted out of bed (my bed super hard to get out of, it's got a low roof and is roughly 1 m off the ground…..not good for tall people), the girls had already decided that we were heading to Target (why Target??) to get some jeans for Julia….. well it ended up a bit more than just jeans for Julia.
It was about midday before we got on the road, heading for Everglades National Park, Florida
Are we there yet? Actually Dad thought it would be a 8 hour drive (from Miami to Flamingo) but was only a 3 hour drive (yes!!) so we ended up at Flamingo just as the sun was going down. In time to take some photos…….don't get too close to the water, else a croc might see you and mistake you for a snack….obviously Luke only hears "get close to the water" so makes a mad dash but doesn't make it, the banks are covered in wet mud, Luke slips over gets mud all over his new jeans and shoes... boys!. :D I've also noticed the weather here, much warmer, a lot like Noosa in the winter…..Dad's favourite, he's already wanting to go for a swim…..I wouldn't, crocs…..
Time to do a blitz! it's called "tidying up blitz". We're tidying up the RV to put up Christmas decorations… Julia's taking her usual job, sweeping the corridor, only this corridor is much smaller than ours back at home. I'm doing the bathroom, Anna's doing something…..not sure what she did, and Mum's doing the dishes!. We are all ready to put up the Christmas decorations!
Finally a early night for the Johnson family……yes!
