Hi Maggie!

Glad to see you are enjoying Canopener, but so sorry the weather isn't cooperating. Topsail is our favorite campground, and try to go once/year, but unfortunately, due to DH's work schedule, we aren't always able to get there annually. (Our second faves have to be various COE campgrounds around this wonderful country!) The beaches in the Destin area are just about the most beautiful anywhere.

Back in the early '70's, I lived in Ft. Walton Beach, FL (suburb of Destin), and worked for a Government contractor on Eglin AFB there. If it hadn't been for a bad marriage, I probably would still live there -- although it has changed a lot in the past 40 yrs!

I am truly enjoying your travels and "riding" along with you and Lily.

Deb

PS -- have you checked out "The Donut Hole" yet?

Also, if you like good, local food, there is a great place called, "Nick's Seafood Restaurant", 7585 State Hwy 20W, Freeport, FL -- it's on a bayou, I think Bayou Basin(?). It is a family bar with fresh catch of the day and great tasting food -- depending upon what the local fishermen catch that day. We always go there at least twice/week when we are in the area.

Hi, Deb, and good to hear from you.

Went to the Donut Hole with new friends for lunch today.

You know, I would always prefer cold to heat, so as long as I'm reasonably comfortable, I'm good.

It has cleared up, and the sun is shining today, so...


Maggie

Hey, if after your rally you can find a spot at Destin State Park just down the road a bit, it's a wonderful place to visit, for as long as you can get a campsite!

Thanks, Bill, I might look into that.

I enjoyed visiting with a fellow crafter at the happy hour last evening, then dinner out with a couple from the Wyoming trip that are here and a large, very hospitable group of others from their Florida unit.

Fresh crab cakes, live jazz and lots of conversation. Nice.

Lots of folks will pull out today, we are staying til tomorrow and then joining up with the WY couple for a few days at St. Joseph's Peninsula SP a bit east of here....looks like a beautiful spot, tho Florida beaches are not dog friendly we will enjoy it nonetheless.

Having a nice time, tho it is still quite cold.....but, nothing like home.

Maggie

Say hi to the WY couple for us. Mas Tierra by any chance? FL is their home state after all.

I got that, Al, marked it on my PocketEarth map and we will be stopping there tomorrow. Thank you.

Hi Gerard. Yes, it is Richard & Karen, who couldn't be more enjoyable and we have had some interesting conversations, comparing notes from the summer.

It is still quite chilly, but the sun is out and everyone staying til tomorrow is doing up laundry.

My clean comforter is hanging out in the breeze and sun, and will smell heavenly come bedtime tonight.

I have identified a leak coming from my water pump, causing a drip every time I use the water, so a highly recommended mobile unit will be here in a couple of hours to repair it.

This rig is 11 years old, stuff wears out, it's all part of the privilege of travel.

I have just ordered pizza delivery, having spoken with the manager at one place to beg an exception to come past the gate.

Good business, I told him, and I will give the driver a generous tip.

Maggie

Wel, I am the proud owner of a brand-new ShurFlo water pump, professionally installed by Lacey's RV Service, right here at my site at Topsail.

What more can one ask for....service with a smile, they had the pump I needed, and they came to me.

I've been gone from home a week, have replaced my coach battery and now my water pump.

Other than those items, this week has been a very good beginning to 2017.

A lovely visit with Al & Patti on the way down, and a very nice, warm group here.

It's a sign.


Maggie

Did a small bit of choring this morning, then set out for St. Joseph's Peninsula SP, finally finding a car wash with a truck bay in Port St. Joe....so we are not only settled in here, we are clean.

This is not a fur piece from Topsail, but a rather slow and winding drive along the coast...the white sands of the panhandle are lovely.

There is no cell service here to speak of, but I did find 2 bars of Verizon LTE ...having some internet connection is good, tho I do have friends here to visit with, and there is also another couple from TopSail who made their way here.

We have a mini-rally, already.

This is a beautiful place on a tiny peninsula out in the Gulf, with cement pads and paved roads throughout....always nice to be able to keep the sand out of your rig.

Will be here til Friday, then.....


Maggie
