We Go South for the Winter....

"We go south for the winter, south for the winter....." sing the birds in Frog and Toad. Uncle Bill is following suit. Yesterday he left, amidst bright sunshine, for his trip to the south.

On Saturday Uncle Bill brought his rig over so we could all have a look before he left:

We climbed inside and drove around the block a few times, just to get an idea of what it will be like:

And here's the Captain himself:

The tiny kitchenette has a 4-burner stove top, little oven, and a fridge with a freezer that possibly has more square footage than my Scotland fridge/freezer did! The essentials like kettle, teapot, and tea cozy are carefully stowed during travel:

And the miniature pantry is growing (notice the "road food" sticking out of the box):

It's sad to see Uncle Bill go. We've had lots of adventures in the past few months and plenty of good food! However, just like in Mary Poppins, Mary can't stay in the same place forever. When the time is right, it's time to move on to the next place.

We hope you have a wonderful and safe journey, Uncle Bill! We'll look forward to your next visit!

Ahh, I will miss him too! It was nice seeing all the good food he cooked and his happy face. Is he just taking off for a while?

I would love to have a loan of a camper for a few weeks...

The fun we would have as a family!
