The last few days I’ve been goofing off a lot. The results of puttering around with little chores in the coach and resting a little has been forgetting to download & post images. Today is a ‘catch-up day’ for images and not so much about new things.
These are from our day trip to St Marks National Wildlife Refuge. It was a blustery day and neither of us thought it quit as cold as it proved to be — so we didn’t do much at the refuge. But it was a beautiful day to be out and about.
Then there were shots from Fort Pickens campground that I failed to post. Mostly I wanted to share this new variety (to me) of a pop-up camper. The hard shell pops up and then extends both fore and aft to provide a hard sided sleeping platform both front and back. The other shot is another image of the campground.
I have to say that while we love our coach I like to keep my eyes on what else is out there. Our friends Otis & Ann from New Lisbon used to RV in a coach but when Otis’ health started to decline they found an RV park that they liked and ended up trading out of their coach and into a pull-behind travel trailer which they leave at Palmdale RV Resort. I could see the possibility that at some point we could choose to do something similar. They just drive a van with a small utility trailer behind. But others doing something similar use a pickup truck camper, or even just a large car. I have no idea what we might do if that were to be our ultimate choice but it’s nice to keep the options in mind.
While on the island, we did get over to Fort Pickens for a short tour. A few miscellaneous shots from within the fort. Some day I might take the time to comment in depth about the history of the fort.
We leave in a few minutes for the trip to Reddick (20 miles north of Ocala, and the location for our RV Park: Ocala North RV Park. Thanks for stopping by and I’ll talk with you tomorrow.
