It has taken three attempts for us to be on the road again – this time we did it! We left Osprey Cove at 0935 hrs. and traveled I10 West for the day. Last week we were getting ready for our first try and the truck developed a severe case of fatigue – seriously lost […]Read more "On The Road – Take 3"
As most people are doing, the Dumonts are staying home and off the roads, still! We are doing our best to stay healthy, trying to absorb copious amounts of vitamin D being outside in the sunshine, and dodging the occasional thunderstorm. Some of our frequent quarantine pastimes include trying to guess which day it is, […]Read more "Staying At Home…"
By this time, we had planned to be headed west to see Beth in Texas, our brother Mike and sister Kathy in Oklahoma, and the Grand Canyon, and finish our state map. You all know the story. We have been fortunate enough to be able to stay in Mayport at Osprey Cove. Things are very […]Read more "Dumonts Are NOT on the Road Again!"
We hit the road on Tuesday to celebrate our anniversary. This time, the house stayed behind at the campground. We have visited Savannah for our anniversary many times. It’s time to explore new places – so we chose Saint Augustine. Just an hour and a half south of Mayport, so it’s pretty much in the […]Read more "Playing Tourist"
Friday morning found the Dumont Trio on the road again! Bill offered to make the trip to the cold North so we could spend Christmas with Mom – an extra special Christmas present for me. We made our plans, including renting a car so we didn’t have to take our truck/tow vehicle and put […]Read more "WHOA – Not in Florida!!!"
This might the virtual equivalent of a postcard from us to you! Fall has found us in Florida…it’s cooler here – in the low 70’s today with abundant sunshine. Just the kind of day that begs you to go fishing on the beach. Actually, we’ve been doing a lot of that recently. Earlier in the […]Read more "Virtual Postcards…Wish You Were Here!"
We’ve been in place for 2 weeks, and are so blessed by our time here in “the Cove”. Our winter “Cove Family” is slowly returning and we are enjoying delightful reunions. Last week, we were treated to a variety of entertainment on the beach. The Marines were conducting exercises on the beach and ocean using […]Read more "Loving Life!"
We arrived at Naval Station Mayport to a warm welcome and greeting from our Mayport family. We are usually arriving later in the year, so enjoyed seeing green grass and many flowers. We quickly set up in “The Cove” and got down to business. One of the first and very important tasks: walk the beach! […]Read more "October 17 – 21 – Mayport – Hit the Ground Running!"
After our late start and lack of success searching, we made the short trip to Savannah. Our destination was Creekfire RV Resort – a campground that participates in Passport America. Another winner! Easy access from the interstate, and impressive first impressions. The staff is warm, friendly and welcoming. The campground is well planned with nice […]Read more "October 14 – 17 – Savannah, and the Search Continues…"
The campground at Naval Weapons Station, Joint Base Charleston – Foster Creek Campground – is a lovely place to stay. We truly enjoyed our time there. Saturday was a leisurely start and we planned to take care of a few errands. Preventive maintenance is always high on our list – so the truck received a […]Read more "October 12 – 14 – Goose Creek, SC…Adventures and Misadventures"
