Friday, March 25, 2016 – Florida!

I left Biloxi, MS this morning about 10:00am.  It was a lovely sunny morning.  I stopped at Bellingrath Gardens in Theodore, AL along the way to walk through their gardens and have a little lunch.

I saw mostly Azaleas.  It was a pleasant break from driving.

I continued on to Pensacola, FL.  I stopped at the grocery store in Gulf Breeze before continuing to Gulf Islands National Seashore.  I paid $15 for park access for the week at the entrance.  You then continue a little over 3 miles to camper registration to check in.  I paid the campground fee when I made the reservation several months ago.  It is $26 per night for electric and water.  Another mile or so down the road is the campgrounds.

I pulled in my spot about 4:45pm.  The day had become overcast during the last few hours.  The campgrounds are full.  It is Easter weekend and spring break for many schools.  There are a lot of families and there is a wide variety of campers.  Fancy rigs, small trailers and pop-ups, tents and some very odd tent-like structures people have rigged up.  I am getting quite a few channels with my little antenna and I getting wifi using my phone as a hotspot.

Weather looks to be pretty good this week.  They are calling for substantial rain on Easter Sunday.  I drove 130 miles today.

  1. We met you in Duluth, MN when we parked next to yiu at the marina in our Airstream. Happy to see that you are on the road again. I enjoy following your adventures and seeing your pictures. Have a great time in FL. We got back from there three weeks ago and miss it every day.

      • The Tall Ships are coming this summer and we will be there for that. There will be a Viking ship and the worlds largest rubber duck. We’ve had our reservation in for over a year for the weekend. If you head back to MN would love to meet up. Safe travels.
