When we left Red Bay,AL we felt we were ready to end our season of motorhome travel (about 5000 miles since we left in April) and get back into a less hectic routine. We planned to spend a few days visiting our daughter, Kristen, son-in-law, Harold,  and our 4 grandchildren - Kenneth, Kiley, Kenzie and Khloe (notice anything unusual about this family......?).

We arrived in Green Cove Springs, FL, south of Jacksonville, in time to see our grandson, Kenneth, play a varsity baseball game and enjoyed it thoroughly.  All of the family attended Kenneth's induction into the National Honor Society and Beta Club at Clay High School followed by a family celebration at Longhorn's.

Kristen, Lauren (youngest daughter who lives in Suwanee, GA), and I had scheduled a Girls' Weekend which was to take place when we returned from our travels.  So on Friday afternoon they both left their jobs a little early and we met in Hilton Head Island for a Sonesta Hotel Spa Weekend for them....I have a spa weekend all the time and chose to read my book, if there was to be any free time, and there wasn't!

We had so barrels of fun.  Kristen and Lauren are both very gifted healers - Doctors of Chiropractic....thus the name of this blog.   Lauren's family practice is in Suwanee, GA,  and Kristen's family practice is in Fleming Island, FL, near Orange Park.

Doesn't this look like a Vertebrae Mirror?

Kristen also owns 2 consignment and upscale furniture/accessory stores called "Junque In The Trunk" in Fleming Island and Flagler Beach.  So .... guess what we did while we were in Hilton Head.

We shopped and shopped all over that part of South Carolina for bargains and buys.  We could have filled a box truck but decided at the last minute to take Kristen's car which was stuffed from top to bottom when we departed on Sunday afternoon.

Our getting away for the weekend was a great idea and we hope to do it again next year.  A Nor'easter did not deter us a single bit.  We saw about 5 weddings taking place in the hotel in 2 nights and a beautiful full moon at no extra charge.

RV and I departed Green Cove Springs in our motorhome on Monday morning and travelled to our winter destination, Florida Grande Motor Coach Resort in Webster, FL.  In a few weeks the word  "snowbirds" will have a very positive meaning in Webster.
