We are out of here. We woke up to temps in the mid 30's and some pink stuff showing on radar just north of us. The plan is to head back home today and not stick around just to see if that's a false echo on the radar. Yesterday mornings repeat of the Bloody Mary's and Mimosas was even more fun. The open house of Airstreams was the best ever and the over 40 selections during the pot luck last night was pretty yummy as well. Currently we are heading east on I-10 . . . Heading home from yet another great road trip to meet up with old friends and have acquired some new ones.
This will take some getting use to for her but in time she will do fine. Last night we also had a bourbon sample'n session . . . 18 bottles total . . . For the moat part I stuck to my PBRs. Then this morning we did a pancake breakfast with the rangers and then the open house with most of the 40 Airstreams participating. I think a few more flamingos got loose. Tonight will be our pot luck dinner and our plan is to head home tomorrow.
Road trips and Airstreams. Last night was a lot of fun. I think the head count at Luckyduck's site was 30 people, one campfire and two outdoor propane heaters. Today started with Bloody Marys & mimosas at Joe & Annette's ... Their flamingo did a good job keeping watch on us all. More Airstream rigs are still arriving today.
We traveled most of the way to Topsail in the rain. By the time we arrived it had stopped. Once we landed we did a quick set-up and drove to Destin to stop by their Bass Pro Shop and eat at McGuire's Irish Pub. It was yummy and did not disappoint. Then when we got back to camp it was raining again and we just called it a night. Only a handful of Airstreams were here when we arrived yesterday .... More arriving already today. It should be a good event.
Were not as much fun without Courtney, Michael, Cassie & Chad gathered around. But we were still able to have a nice evening last night. This morning started out a bit gloomy and has now turned to rain. I was able to get a few pictures prior to our departure. One was of the largest bell tower ever located right in the park and the other was taken just outside the park in downtown White Springs. If anyone is wondering that bell tower goes off every fifteen minutes. :-) Only during daylight hours of course. Currently we are heading west on I-10.
Today we traveled a short distance to Stephen Foster State Park in White Springs, Florida. This is a great park in North Florida on the Suwannee River. Since this is a one night stay we will need to come back to explore the park more. There is lots of hiking and kayaking to be done here. Tomorrow we will be heading to Topsail Hill State Park on Santa Rosa Beach near Destin, Florida. The Can Opener Event will commence there this weekend.
