I forgot to put up a couple of photos of our leaving Betty’s RV Park that I wanted to show you.
Here the gang gathers to say goodbye, which is a tradition at Betty’s.
This is the formal grouping
but I like this better…a little wacky.
We saw the skyline of Mobile, AL on the way
We saw the USS Alabama as we drove by
Saw the sign to Pensacola Beach
Had to go over TWO bridges….arggg! Don’t like going over bridges….
Yesterday we woke up to 18* and it only got up to 39* as a high. We don’t have many clothes for this type of cold weather, and RVs just aren’t built for staying comfortably in cold weather.
But we wanted to get out a little and explore the Gulf Breeze area that is close to Fort Pickens Campground. We found the laundromat, post office and Publix grocery. I like Publix…they have clean stores with lots of selections. This one even had live lobsters for sale ($15/pound). We picked up some groceries which we haven’t done in a while because at Betty’s we only ate lunch and then got filled on food brought for daily happy hours, so we never cooked dinner.
Although it was cold the scenery was magnificent. Looking at these photos is very inviting and you’d never know that at the time I took these photos it was a freaking 25 degrees!!!!!!
The sand is call sugar white
The sand is soft and beautiful
The sand drifts across the road like snow
I made a big pot of clam chowder and had Charles over for dinner. Today he is taking us to Peg Leg Pete’s for lunch, which will be very nice. It has great reviews and I’m looking forward to going.
Outside of that we are staying close to home because of this Polar Vortex weather. Need to go find some propane as we are running an electric heater and our Kozy World propane heater. Can’t use our heat pump much as it is too cold and it kicks off at about 40*, so it’s not much use right now. I am also putting together a slow cooker of pinto beans and ham for dinner tonight. I’m keying in on serving soups, stews and “stick to your ribs” kind of foods to ward off the cold. Glad Charles is here to help eat it up as I always make too much.
Remember, you are loved.
