I never thought the day would finally arrive when I would be saying goodbye to Florida. Early tomorrow morning the movers will arrive to load all the items we are taking with us to Ecuador to put into storage until our Visas have been approved for residency. Once they are approved, I will email the company, send them documentation proof and in a week or two we will have all our belongings.
It has been a long journey to get to this point, but it has been well worth the wait. After the movers leave, we will do some final clean up and then head out to Miami where we will stay overnight and leave for Ecuador on Friday. I am SO looking forward to doing nothing but enjoying the ride and resting up from months of packing, purging and cleaning.
Goodwill loves us at this point in time, we have made a total of 27 trips with donations of everything from clothing to household goods to fabric to books and I don’t know what else. Habitat Restore was thrilled with the furniture we gave them – 2 sofas with electric recliners built-in, a very large circular oak dinning table with four chairs, 3 Black Walnut bookcases, a German Hutch, Glass tea cart, chest freezer, 1913 White Twig Treadle, and a 5-piece King size bedroom set and a queen size sofa bed. They loved the quality furniture and told us its the nicest donations they’ve ever received as the furniture was like new.
I am so bone tired right now, but seeing the light at the end of the tunnel is a welcome sight and does refresh one a bit.
The next time I post, we should be in Guayaquil or in Cuenca. We will be traveling to Guayaquil to stay overnight there and then a van will pick us up Saturday morning and take us to Cuenca where we will be staying with a wonderful lady who has opened her home to us and will accompany us as we look for a place to call home.
Take care my friends and may the good Lord bless each and every one of you with all the best that life has to offer. Until next time,
Terri at the Drake’s Nest
