Our New Chevrolet Equinox

It has been a long time since we purchased a new car. We did a lot of research and with the help of FMCA's list of 4 on the ground tow-able vehicles we decided on the Chevy Equinox. For the time being we are keeping our Jetta TDI to tow behind our RV.  Since we are in Florida, went with a cool exterior color: Iridescent Pearl (white)

With Ted's recent health issues we were looking for a car that was easy for him to get in and out of. The Equinox has nice wide and high door entry both front seat and back. The interior of the new car is called Saddle Up with jet black accents.

We were also looking for a storage area that we could carry larger items say from Lowes.

Miami Zoo

The only tropical zoo in the continental United States, Zoo Miami houses over 3,000 animals on nearly 750 acres, 324 acres of which are developed.
We spent a cool, sometimes rainy day right before Christmas at the Miami Zoo. There is a lot to see and in one day we just scratched the surface. Below are just a few of the sights we saw.....






























Hanging Around Key West

We spent several days in Key West visiting with Ted's cousin, Frank and his wife, Karen. Above Ted and Frank find a toilet to try out right off Duval Street.

Lunch and catching up with Frank and Karen at Fogarty's on Duval Street.




Sloppy Joe's, one of Hemingway's hangouts
