Shell Shocked

Today we entered a new phase of our lives; we are free to wander wherever the whim takes us. Scary stuff! We are parked up at The Mount, happy but a little shell-shocked. We said a final good-bye to all our lovely neighbours & then the house this morning and drove over here, where being school holidays, it is very busy this afternoon. Thankfully I had booked our site a few weeks ago & because we’re a fifth-wheeler we have two end to end sites. Most of the motorhomes & caravans that have arrived since us have had to squeeze in front to back & I’m not too sure I’d be happy being on the back site. As it is with our slide out, we can nearly pass a drink through the window to our neighbour.
As we were travelling here this morning I said to David “Well, that’s it darling, our whole life is behind us” referring to “Out There” attached to the ute & appearing larger than life through the back window. And he said, “No our whole life is “Out There” in front of us”

To any of our Tauranga & Mt Maunganui friends, if you're passing our door while we're here, the welcome mat is out.

I can assure you, the camp ground doesn't look this empty this evening!
But hey, it's The Mount & we're on "holiday", we'll also have to get used to being crowded in occasionally.
