Several friends and family have asked us what our plans are this year and where we're going, so I thought I'd add a short summary of our summer plans. We'll hit five states and 18 stops before heading back to Florida for the winter.
Hold on to your hats - here is our summer:

If you'd like to join us in any of our travels, please let us know!
After that, we'll take two weeks to head back to Brooksville, FL for our six month winter stay at Belle Parc. Although we've not set anything in concrete, 2019 will be spent out west. Since this will be more than one season, we've not decided where to head first, so stay tuned.
If there's anything we shouldn't miss, be sure and let us know!
