Our site #9 at Camp Blanding, it was very windy.  Spacious sites, we will definitely be going here again in the summer.  Look how clear the water is.

Can’t wait to go again.

Summer fun thru Thanksgiving

The last post was short and sweet.  We are back to camping thank goodness.  Brent is almost 100% healed.  I am going to back up to July 4th 2010 and post some pictures from then.


We are at Flamingo Lakes RV resort…we always have fun there.

Brent had to go to work in Mississippi the week after July we headed west instead of east.  He had to work in Pascagoula MS, we camped in Gautier, MS at Indian Point RV Resort.

Thankfully it had a pool…that is where I hung out while he was at work.  It was very hot there.  The dogs only wanted to do their business and get back to the AC inside the rig.

We ventured to Biloxi on the motorcycles one evening.  We went to the Hard Rock Casino…gamblers we are not.  I was bored very quickly.  At least we tried.

On are venture back to Jacksonville we spent the night at  Florida Springs RV Resort in Bonifay, FL.  It was a nice overnight stop.  The owners were very friendly, they are new owners and have a lot of great plans for this place.

Sock monkey had to get in on the pictures.

No lifeguard…who do you think I am.


My friend gifted me with Sock Monkey…he loves to go camping.  He will be showing up in pictures from our excursions.

We did a quick weekend trip to Flamingo Lakes RV Resort the last weekend of July first of August.  My friend Wendy stopped by with her dog to see us, the dogs are enjoying the sun.

Sock Monkey had on Mackenzie’s turkey hat she made at school.  He has to hang from the loft in the RV..Kona thinks it is her toy and would quickly rip the stuffing out of him.

While we were camping these 9 days we had 3 incidents in our rig, the first one was a water leak, coming from the wall in the toilet room…the only way to get to it was to tear into the wall.  So Brent did, fixed the leak, since then he has repaired the wall and you cannot even tell he tore the wall out.  Next Brent went to blow out a tart burner and the wax went all over the walls and down in the stove, I have no idea what why he blew so @@.  He did a fine job cleaning it up…what a mess.  Then Mackenzie had been doing so good about going in and out..she was coming in the RV and lost her balance on the steps…she had the screen door latch in her hand…you guessed it the latch stayed in her hand…thankfully she was not hurt.  Since we have 2 entrances he removed the latch from the back door and put it on the most used one.  We now have a new latch installed.  As they say things happen in 3’s.

Until next time!!!!!
