When we started this strange and lovely adventure I was in the midst of several big work projects and there wasn't any time to figure out the kinks of working whilst living on the road. Deadlines loomed and Bill very kindly brought me food and washed all the dishes and walked the dogs while I stayed hunched over my drawing and painting.
Now my project load has eased a bit and after two months of full time travel we're slowly figuring out our routine. When Bill isn't out taking photos or dealing with RV maintenance stuff, he works at the kitchen table. My headphones are getting lots of use since Bill doesn't usually want to listen to The Gilmore Girls or Harry Potter. The dogs, who were both initially really nervous anytime we were driving the RV, seem to have gotten into the swing of things.
Trouble still pops up now and again (the very warm days we're having are a bit of a struggle in our little oven of a motorhome). But illustrations are being completed, photos are being taken, delicious food is being eaten, and the air conditioner (although quite loud and a little smelly) works pretty well.
Last week we were in Silver Springs, Florida where Bill went kayaking, saw a manatee and lots of turtles and alligators and visited the Ocala Wildlife Sanctuary (which I hope he'll tell you more about soon). And this week we're in Orlando where we'll visit Universal Studios and Disneyworld.
But, for now there are drawings to finish and photos to edit.
I hope you're well wherever you are! And if you have suggestions of places to visit in Florida or the south, I'd love to hear!
