After getting ready, Ken and I packed for today's departure from St. Augustine. Ken loaded the car and then the 4 of us enjoyed a light breakfast together and after saying our good-byes, Rick and Joyce headed to their home in Venice and Ken and I drove for 2 1/2 hours to Chuck and Melissa's home. We had left numerous things there so we didn't have to take them to St. Augustine. So, we said our good-byes again to Chuck and Melissa, hoping to see them next year when we are in Florida!
From there Ken and I drove another 1 1/2 hours to Lazydays to check on the status of Wilbur. We were hoping to be on our way to Harbor Lakes Resort sometime today, but NO! The part had only arrived late yesterday and Wilbur went into the bay 1st thing this morning. The roller on the slide that had to be replaced was very difficult to get to and it was even tougher to gain access to put the new one in. Long story short, they got the new roller in place, but it was going to take some time to put everything back together (they had to do some repositioning of the slide and even remove the refrigerator. So, Lazydays are paying for us to stay in a Country Inn and Suites tonight and hopefully we will be back in Wilbur "sometime" tomorrow. We would be thrilled to be out of here by noon, but time will tell! Samantha, our service rep, has done a terrific job for us and really the problem has been getting the needed part and getting the warranty company to approve the work. Both of those things only happened yesterday - crazy and frustrating, but Ken and I are staying positive. This is not life and death, just inconvenient, and we were blessed to have wonderful places to stay and get friends to be with during this waiting period!
We were checked into the hotel by 4 and so glad for some time to rest and regroup. Ken did some needed work on the computer and I worked on this blog. I have a feeling it will be an early night!
