How To Catch Up On Your Blogs

Well, I was two weeks behind in posting my blogs and was trying to figure out how I would do it.  We have no internet where we are staying.  This morning we began by going back to Eco Pond to watch the birds.

It's still amazes us watching them flying across the pond and down to a feeding spot.  They feed a little while and then begin the flying and moving to a different spot.

Our plan today was to drive out of the park and head to the Keys.  We were about 20 miles from the entrance and the check engine light went on in the car, then we lost all acceleration.  Jim pulled over and turned the car off and restarted it.  We went another 10 miles and it did it again.  We also had zero cell phone service in this area.  Needless to say it was a quiet ride out of the park.  Once we got to the entrance of the park, I was able to find a Nissan dealer in Homestead about 15 miles away.  We got to the dealer and had to wait several hours for them to be able to check it.  Apparently, there were a couple of warranty issues.  Scary, and thank goodness we were able to get somewhere for service.

So, we probably will not make it to the keys this time.  There is a lot to do in the Everglades and we have to get back to our boys.

However,  it was a way for me to catch up on my blogs. :)

  1. Yay that you were able to take your car somewhere close. It sounds like you got the car fixed. What was wrong with it?

    I'm glad you caught up on your blogs. You've been doing some interesting stuff!

    We're taking the 5th wheel to Las Vegas; leaving San Antonio on Saturday morning. We are soooooo ready to travel again!!

    When are you back in Texas at South Llano River?
