Week One

It has been one week since we left Nashville for our full time RV lifestyle. We have moved 3 times and met so many sweet people. When we get more photos of the party, we will post those.

First night was south of Montgomery, at Montgomery South RV Park.  We stayed 2 nights in Montgomery.

We received so many nice gifts for our travels. Everyone signed the sweat shirts and someone even included “Go Cats” on each one, even though they misspelled that, it should have been “Go Cards”.  Oh well, it was the thought that counts, Right??

 

Then to Navarre, FL. 200 miles, 4 hours to Emerald Beach RV Resort, site #65. Great spot and beautiful view of Navarre Beach on Santa Rosa Island.

Had dinner at the Shrimp Basket, first night in Florida.

We headed out on Wednesday for Pensacola. First stop, we went across the bridge to Navarre Beach. Their Pier is the longest in the Gulf.  Talked to some fishermen and they all have a cool cart.20151209_091139 (2)

Headed to the Pensacola Lighthouse and Naval Aviation Museum.

We did not get to see the Blue Angels, but hope to get back earlier next year. They don’t train here in the winter months.  Very cool place.  We used to collect little lighthouse statues.  We had one of the Pensacola Lighthouse. Then lunch at Joe Patti’s Seafood Restaurant.

And went into a nautical store that sold a lot of things that we can no longer purchase. In our old life, we would have been all over this nautical decor. Went to Cactus Flower, Jennifer and Mark Fournier, suggested. Probably not the one they wanted us to go, but we went to this one.  Food was great.20151210_16032820151209_171753

Beautiful view from our camp site of Navarre Beach at night.

Friday December 11,2015  Travel Day – heading to Eastpoint, FL near Apalachicola. 156 miles, 3.5 hours – slow down Hwy. 98.  Heading to Coastline RV Resort.

Stopped in Panama City Beach – Sheila and Owen Hays suggested this one.  Beautiful…

Crossed the bridge from Apalachicola to Eastpoint and found our spot at Coastline RV Resort. Site 10.  Very nice…. again.

First night, Family Coastal Restaurant. We had the Bacon Wrapped Shrimp, not stuffed.  Very good, would suggest this to anyone.

And we met Abigail.  So sweet, has lived in Eastpoint her whole life. She is graduating from college with a degree in Medical Coding. She has not decided where she wants to go yet. She makes scarfs for dogs and cats.  After dinner at the Family Coastal Restaurant, she invited us to attend the Apalachicola Flea Market on Saturday.  We even met her Mother selling hats and scarfs next to her booth.  She will have a Etsy store up and running soon, so please check it out.  We are so excited to see where her degree takes her.  Of course, we suggested Nashville.

Went for a walk around Apalachicola, saw some shrimp boats and found a very cool nautical store.  If I was shopping for some cool nautical stuff for someone’s house, this would be the place to go.

Then to lunch at “Hole In The Wall”. We did not eat any oysters, but had some awesome Seafood Gumbo and grilled Shrimp.  This seasoning was awesome and it is Cliff’s favorite saying about good stuff. They collect hats and we found Louisville, Vanderbilt and Tennessee. The couple that shared their table with us are from Panama City, down celebrating their wedding anniversary.  She order baked oysters with cheese, bacon and jalapenos.

Started Sunday morning with Crosspoint Church and Pastor Pete.  I connected the laptop to the TV and watched online.  So cool that we can still attend our church, even on the road.

5 Mile Bridge from Eastpoint to St. George Island. Beautiful Sunday drive.  It is off season here, so most everything is closed, but it was still beautiful.

We went back to Eastpoint and had a late lunch at Red Pirate and our first baked oysters.  We loved them. Calico Jacks with cheese, bacon and jalapenos.  Very good.

It has been a long week and this has been a long post.  Hopefully, I will learn to do this more often, so the blog post are not so long.

Hope you have enjoyed our pictures and our adventures so far.
