Wow Dinner is over

Well we did Thanksgiving Dinner here at Three Flags RV Resort in FL. yesterday and it was great. We sat with friends Bryan and Phyllis and Norm and Terri. The food was just great and thought it was real nice of the park to foot the bill.

Today we went to Don Garlits Drag Racing Museum. Wow I didn't realize he built that many cars. There are over 200 race and antique cars in there and it is just wonderful. He has most all his car he raced but some are reproduction cars. There are more Hemi motors and Blowers sitting around than I have ever seen in one place. It is a definite must see if you are into the Drag Race seen.

Well all for now but will be back on later.

We have moved again

We left Fountain FL. yesterday in the rain and when I say rain I mean rain. It came down in buckets most of the way to Wildwood FL. We did get here just fine but took a bit longer than it would have without the rain. We are staying in a TT park called Three Flags and it is a real nice place. We had just got here and started setting up and wouldn't you know it someone we had spent time with in Calif. last year came walking up and is set up almost right across from us. It was great seeing Bryan and Phyllis and catching up on where we have all been since see each other last year. Also talked to Norm and Terri that we met in Arley AL. and will have fun spending time with them too.

Still here in Fountain FL


We are still here at Pine Lake RV Park but getting ready to head to the Orlando area on Tuesday. This area is not a good area to find truest things to do. We did go down to Panama City and drove all over the area around it but didn't find much to see or do. There is lots of Marinas  and some beach areas but most beaches are privet. To get into a State Park will cost you $8.00 and a year pass is $127.00. Guess they don't want the traveler to come in. We did find a place in Panama City with a free small park on the bay called Oaks by the Bay. Nice place with some history and old Oak trees. There is also a rare 4 head Palm tree that is cool. You can also go out on the waters edge and see Hermit Crabs. We did pick up several and it was fun to watch them. The Park we are at is real nice and even had a big Camp Fire so the campers could all gather and meet and chat on Friday night.
Will post more when we move.

We finally made it to Florida

Well we left Hidden Cove RV park in Arley AL this morning and drove to Pine Lake RV Park in Fountain FL. It was a good drive and the roads were ok for once. The park is nice and Bristol likes it so far even thought he really liked Hidden Cove. This place is about 30 miles north of Panama City. So I am sure we will check that out. Will keep you up dated as time goes on as we will be here a week.

Getting ready to head South

Well today we are getting everything packed up and loaded so we can leave tomorrow. We will be going to Fountain FL. tomorrow about 300 miles south. Will stay there a week then on to Orlando. Fountain is in the northern part of Florida about 150 miles east of Pensacola. Just thought I would let you all know what was going on. Have fun where you are and we will continue to do the same.

Found something to see

                               CLICK HERE TO SEE PICTURES OF THE AREA

Well today it was nice and warm ahead of a storm coming in tomorrow. So we decided to take the bike and ride to a Covered bridge we had heard about. It was the Clarkson Covered bridge. It was a nice bridge and we had a nice walk through it. There is also an old Mill on the site but no information on it.
After we left there we happened to see a sigh about a Civil War Museum so we went in that direction and we found a real Jewell. It was the Crooked Creek Civil War Museum. It is a privet owned museum and sites on the Battle field of Crooked Creek. This was the site of the confederate Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest and Union Col. Abel Streight fought for several hours on April 30, 1863 at Crossing of Crooked Creek and Hog Mountain. The owner was great and took us on a guided tour and told us all about the things he had there. We were also able to pick up things and play with them. Gloria was amazed how heavy the Muskets were. There lots of Authentic Civil War thing there and it was great to see them. If you are ever in the area between Arley and Cullman AL. you should try to find it. It is hard to find as it is not advertised real well but would be worth you time to see it.

Having a good time

We have been enjoying our time here in Arley AL. so far. Went to Cullmam the other day and did some shopping and went to the  Cullman County Museum. It is a small place but has lots of history of the area and also have a Civil War display right now that was real good

. Also found a Papa Murphy Pizza place so we got our pizza fix. Weather here has been ok but cool for Gloria. It is cloudy and windy today but should clear up later. Have met several other campers and have spent some time chatting with them. Most all the people here are real friendly and nice.

Having fun just relaxing

Have not done much here as there isn't much to do. Have been down to the lake and watched some fish swim by. Weather here has been good except for the other night when it rained but not too much. Last night we went to dinner in Huston AL. about 12 miles away. We went with friends we met here ( Norm and Terri ) and there friends. We had Cat Fish and it was ok. Think on Monday we will run into Cullman which is about 30 miles away and do some shopping and go to a museum that is there. Guess we will just veg here and save up for all the stuff we will be doing in Florida.
