Lee, Marie, and our MCI Bus in MexicoSitting in front of our MCI Bus in Mexico

We headed off to explore warmer climes for the winter in our late 40’s and early 50’s.  Since then, we’ve spent many winters enjoying some beach somewhere.  

There were years, of course, life got in the way, and we stayed home.  But whenever we could make it work, we headed south for the winter.    

We’ve explored the southern states and into Mexico with our RVs. — And flown to Central America, rented a car, and explored their beaches and countryside.  

We’re here to share our findings, experiences, stories, and favorite spots with you.
