This post is a follow-up to my last post about my snowbird stay at San Carlos RV Park in Fort Myers Beach. One of the benefits of staying at San Carlos is that I’ve been able to meet many super nice people from all over the country. The park caters to returning snowbirds so over the course of 5 years, I’ve become friends with many of the “winter residents”.
Most travel bloggers tend to fill their blog entries with pictures of landscapes, objects, and interesting scenery. I do that when I’m writing about a place or a trip. But this post is different. It’s about people. I’m dedicating the content to those friends and fellows that I’ve met at San Carlos. It’s meant to be a photo album of the friends that I want to remember.
This past winter I undertook a project to photograph the people in the RV park. I worked at it over the course of the winter taking pictures at various events that were held in the park. It’s was a challenge because I wanted candid shots of people being happy and just being themselves. I couldn’t get everyone because I wasn’t able to capture them in a good candid photo. So, there’s a few couples, friends, and fellows missing.
I took almost 100 photos of people. Below are the best ones. The smiles show that these are happy folks.
RV journeys can be about travel to new places, doing adventurous activities, eating exotic foods, and seeing jaw dropping scenery.
For me, the journeys are also about the people you meet on your journeys. Getting to meet and enjoy the company of new people is just a rewarding as seeing a red rock canyon or a snow-capped mountain range.
The people I’ve met at San Carlos are some of the best.
