Where are we today ?
Walkabouts the resort, Suzie had her shower, we secured the coach and were on the road just before 8am. Heading to Destin Florida only 260 miles and would like to get there in good time.
|260 miles today|
Down I-75 for a few miles then cross country, don't like the interstate if we have a choice. So we enjoyed some wonderful paved 2 and 4 lanes roads through a few towns, past many cotton fields and other farming operations. Now this is our kind of country.
|huge round bales of cotton|
|nice roads, not many trucks or traffic|
|love the cotton fields look like snow|
Coming into the town of Blakely AL the main road goes right around the town square, love these kind of routes.

By not taking the interstates we miss rest areas, but found grocery store parking lot to pull into and make lunch. While there saw this HUGE Peanut driving down the road. Managed to grab a quick shot of it. Now would that not make a very interesting RV. Think he was heading down the road to the National Peanut Festival in Dothan Alabama.
|love the peanut|
|National Peanut festival grounds, pretty quiet right now|
Further down the road in Florida we came across some construction, no delays but do love RED dirt here.
We arrived at the State Park in Destin Florida at 1:45pm our time. But forgot and the time change so it was actually 12:45pm . Bonus!! We have more time to spend here with this almost 80f weather on a wonderful secluded campsite. Wow think we struck gold!
|all set up very nice.|
|like we are in the jungle|
Set up relaxed, enjoying the shade and the sun and almost quiet. We checked out the local flyers, specials etc..., and settled into enjoying our books for a while
|perfect private campsite, love it|
But with the time change again it was almost dark at 5 pm. Time to fire up our Weber and make supper. No problem got the night light out to grill a tasty Basa fillet and tomato with olive oil and parmesan cheese.
Added that to a green salad and sure did the trick.
After supper a short walkabout and we enjoyed reading outside until almost 8 pm and it was still 70 f. Love the temperatures here but not the humidity.
Glad you came along for the ride today it was wonderful for us and hope it was for you too.
