This campground is a “must visit” friends! It is so quiet here, and it is just plain lovely. A few bugs, but it is a campground. Comes with resident alligators and snakes – or so we have been warned. And there is considerable helicopter traffic – mostly Blackhawks although we did see a Chinook today. […]Read more "26 April 2021 – Engineer Beach Campground"
Talk about a lazy, relaxed start! We took our time, took a little walk, and were on the road about 1040 hrs. Travel today was nothing short of delightful! Minimal traffic, and the GPS took us on County Roads and State Highways. Very scenic drive and at less than expressway speeds. We arrived at Fort […]Read more "25 April 2021 – Pensacola to Fort Rucker, AL"
Sort of…we did start our packing in anticipation of moving on Sunday. We explored a local airport off-base (in case we come back next year and bring 23 Unicorn). Also checked out a local grocery store – and wonder of wonders – found split peas and celery seeds (they were nowhere to be found in […]Read more "24 April 2021 – Packing Day"
Thursday was an “errand” and detail day. Always good to build these days into your schedule. The kind of day where you head out with a laundry list of things to take care and allow for flexibility in case something exciting presents itself. Exciting in this case turned out to be lunch at a local […]Read more "22 & 23 April 2021"
We have been treated to two “practice” air shows in two days – a la Blue Angels style. These two days started gently, easing into the day and walking Piper and Mara before packing up our lawn chairs and walking a mile to “show center”. We were literally front row and show center, masked and […]Read more "20 & 21 April 2021 – Angels in Paradise"
Due to some challenges with internet access, blog posts will be uploaded soon! We are in an honest to goodness campground that doesn’t include WiFi!!! Stay tuned!Read more "Internet Issues!!!"
Marvelous Monday! We started out with a nice walk for the pups in cool sunshine. There is a short segment of beach that we can take them on – Piper really likes the water here. The waves are minimal, and today she was wearing her Brave Girl pants. She was in the water up to […]Read more "April 19, 2021 – Paradise"
Not much good to say about yesterday – I was actually considering Googling the plans to start building the Ark. Bill was brave and went out to get his steps and miles outside – our bathroom looked like a laundry with all of his wet clothes on hooks. I, on the other hand, opted to […]Read more "April 17 & 18, 2021 – Pensacola"
We have arrived safely aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola! We departed in leisurely fashion this morning at 1007 hrs. and enjoyed light traffic for travel. At some point early in the trip we crossed into Central Time and will be living in this time zone for a couple weeks. As we got closer to Pensacola, […]Read more "16 April 2021 – Lamont to Pensacola"
After spending the past two days packing, cleaning, storing, and taking care of last-minute details, we were wheels turning at 1040 hrs. this morning. Our target departure time was between 1000 and 1100 hrs., so we did well. It is a tiny bit intimidating to plan that first move after being in one place for […]Read more "On The Road…after 182 days!"
