Last Trip Before Lockdown. March 2020 Madness. The Palm Coast House Buying Holiday

Once upon a time, in a Galaxy far far away and in a time BC (Before Corona) , the wannabe Flagerfiftysomethings



Yes that would be us

Made a mad March dash to buy a home in Florida.

A place in the sun for our fast approaching retirement years

Palm Coast to be precise.



Which wont be a surprise to readers of the Bayous to Beaches Trippy from Oct 2019.
I know.

Who does that ? Buys a house in Florida two weeks before a national lockdown - but little did we know at the time ...

After all the whirlwind excitement of the trip, its been plain Corona crazy and we have had quite a few moments wondering what we have gone and done.

But this cant last forever so after a few months of it all being quiet we have recently picked up our dream home plans again and are slowly, very slowly, inching forward.

Flights to Florida resuming would be a definite help here but we have plenty of planning to occupy us In the meantime.

So if you are curious to see our house buying adventure...

There will be choices



There will be cocktails



There will also be an Ikea



And lots
and lots
and lots

of house fittings type stuff



Or if you Maybe just want to shed a tear seeing the VA bubble one last time





😭😭😭😭

Or Maybe drool over Choconana Pancakes



Then dive in ...

Pre Trip in two parts ... #1 the travel planS and #2 the House plans

March 2nd Pre travel day

March 3rd Travel day - VirginAtlantic - and seats in the bubble, eep . Checking in at Legacy vacation Resorts, Palm Coast

March 4th - Palm Coast . Show(house) time . And 96 pages of options to choose from.

March 5th- We Wanna see ya in IKEA - shopping in Jacksonville and St Augustine

March 6th- Palm coast . Dining at Dennyís. Sealing the Deal, Flagler Beach and spotting vikings in the European Village

March 7th-Palm Coast. Its Saturday - just like home - sports bars and DIY stores. Brass Tap and Lowes feature

March 8th - Palm Coast and Orlando . Well Howdy neighbour. A last look at our land and onto Orlando outlets and Millers .

March 9th - Burger and Pie for breakfast - must be coming home day. BubbleTime on our final flight VirginAtlantic -

March 10th - and then it all went pear shaped and what next

Itís a trip with a difference
