Actually, we’re already here.

We got in today, but we won’t start visiting the parks until tomorrow.

We’ll be here until May 1st  so we have plenty of time to see everything.

Here are some pics.

Wheeeeeeeeeee……!

Jan and I drove down to Tampa’s Busch Gardens today.

And a fun time was had by all…

Well, maybe Jan didn’t have quite as much fun as I did.

In fact she used words I didn’t think she knew.

And this was on the family-friendly ‘baby’ roller coaster. I wasn’t able to get her on any of the bigger ones, like the SheiKra, that goes up 200ft and then hurls you straight down at 80mph, or the Mantu that has 3 consectutive 360 degree vertical loops in a row.

Note the difference in enjoyment levels in the pic below…

Wheeeeeeeeeee!

Trivial Pursuit…

We ended up staying two nights here in Carrabelle, FL, riding out some bad weather that was passing thru.

Thursday night, we went to a small local restaurant that was recommended to us called 2 Als, and it was really good. So good, in fact, that we went back this morning for breakfast.

But last night was interesting in that we ended up in the middle of 2 Als weekly Trivial Pursuit contest.

The 6 teams were divided up by tables and we were the only 2 person team. And we were in the lead too, until another couple and a lady joined our table. It was all downhill from there.

The guy part of the couple was three, maybe four, sheets to the wind, and kept yelling out wrong answers. His companion couldn’t make up her mind about anything, and the other lady kept getting upset that we weren’t asking for her input, but when we did, she never had any answers.

We finally came in third. We’d have been much better off if we had sat at a table for two, instead of a table for six.

This morning, after breakfast at 2 Als, we headed out for Old Town, FL, about 140 miles away, getting  in about 3pm. We’re staying at a Passport America park called Old Town Campground. It’s a small park, only about 100 sites and really out in the woods.

As I mentioned, this is a Passport America park. We like these when we can find them, because as a Passport America club member we can stay here for half price, in this case $12.50 a day instead of $25. 

Hey, it adds up!

We plan on being here a few days seeing sights in the area.

Heading Out Again…

After a month, today we headed out from Gulf Shores, AL  to Port  St. Joe, FL. It was supposed to be an easy 175 mile run, thru Pensacola, Ft. Walton Beach, and Panama City. We stayed on US 98 all the way down, keeping off the Interstates.

But when we got to the park we had planned to stay at, we found the grass sites so muddy that it didn’t seem like a good idea to park and risk getting stuck, so we headed back out, checking online for another park as we went.

We finally ended up in Carrabelle, FL at a very nice park right across the street from the Gulf. But by the time we got there, it was getting dark and bad weather was closing in.

 I’m glad we were able to get off the road before it got completely dark.
