8002, sold

It’s nearly ten years since we bought 8002, originally our Florida vacation home – and eventually a very useful “staging home” when we moved from Massachusetts. Once we’d moved to our current home, we rented 8002 for a while but that ended badly with no payments and lots to repair, so a year ago we decided to sell – and it’s taken this long! We lost a lot (buying just before the big housing crash!), but 8002 was a great vacation home and made moving to Florida a lot easier.

So, last pictures of 8002, now sold …

Leaving 8002

The truck arrived, and everything is ready. Apart from a few furniture items (which we will give away), the whole of 8002 – and everything that came down from Massachusetts last year that we never unpacked – goes in the truck! And with that, 8002 is empty:

Turkey Vultures

The house across the road has again made the mistake of leaving their trash bins not properly closed, and a “gang” of Turkey Vultures has taken advantage! Note the trash on the grass bottom right, and all the birds on their roof (and there’s a second group on another roof too):

Christmas 2013

Our second Christmas in Florida, but our first where Florida is our only home! Happily everyone knew where to send Christmas cards. Lots of presents too, including comic annuals that Margaret brought back from England for me! And I got Margaret a lovely Winnie The Pooh & friends picture, which one day can go on the wall of our new home …


We also did a full British style Christmas dinner, with chicken, stuffing, roast potatoes, yorkshire puddings, brussel sprouts … and when we’re a bit less full, some of Margaret’s pavlova for dessert!
