Thank you, Facebook

Don’t get me wrong. There are LOTS OF PROBLEMS with Facebook.  But today was an example of how Facebook actually helps us stay connected in a very unexpected way! Earlier this week I noticed on FB that a cousin of Gary’s was headed to Florida. Hmmm, I thought. I wonder where in FL? The next day she posted her morning view which looked surprisingly like mine. Turns out that while she and her sweet family weren’t exactly next door, they were vacationing in a condo only about 15 miles east of us!! It was such a delight to meet up with them for lunch today and catch up over delicious seafood!
And without so many shadows –
So good to connect with these guys – and it never would’ve happened with that goofy Facebook connection!
After lunch Gary and I headed off to Destin to track down a “Little Free Library“. Gary loves LFL’s – to get rid of books that he’s read and to maybe find a new one!
The internet told us there was one in this huge shopping village
and while the LFL was a bust for Gary’s book quest, it was located right outside an ice cream shop.
So, all in all, a good stop!

An unexpected visit with dear Cousins, delicious seafood, yummy ice cream, and and at the end of the day a beautiful evening sky –
Beach therapy at its best!

  1. As full time RVers we have been blessed with connecting with many RV friends and non-Rv friends because of a Facebook post. This continent is large but social media can keep us close in many ways.
