Saturday April 5, Brrrr it's cold this morning. We left around 9:30 and started our day off with a missed turn. Well we didn't really miss the turn, the road changed and to get to the turn you needed to exit then make the turn. Lucky for us it wasn't too long before a perfect turn around appeared. On the way back we were able to make that turn. We can definitely tell that were heading north by the lack of life in the trees and the condition of the roads....bumpy. We traveled around 230 miles. It seemed like a lot longer. I think it's because we are ready to get back and see the kids. We landed in Kentucky at Exit 31 RV park. It was easy to find, we checked in at the restaurant there. They gave us no rules and told us to take any spot. We picked site #8. We had a cement pad, 50 amp, water, sewer and cable. You could tell that there's been a lot of rain. The gravel roads at the campground were a bit sketchy. You could see where the water had run and made some pretty good ruts. Had to go really slow and dodge them. We had leftovers for supper and went to bed early.
Sunday April 6, Really cool to start the day but it warmed up fast. Jeff decided to take a walk. There was a trail right by the campground that he took. He said it was a really nice path that took you to an Indian burial ground. I decided to get some cleaning done. I got the microwave/convection cleaned out. Then I decided to do the laundry since it was perfect drying conditions outside. We had made reservations at Pattis 1880 Settlement. We had been there before and wanted to come back. It's a very unusual place that has shops, gardens, animals and the restaurant. The restaurant is broke up in rooms, like in a house. Ours was the family room. The restaurant opened in 1977, the waitress's wear long dresses with long aprons. They also explain a little bit about the place how it started. A funny story, the waitress was explaining about the restaurant and how when they opened that the only soda company that would deliver out to them was RC, so they've stuck with them all this time. So then the waitress proceeds to ask what we want to drink and Jeff replies Coke or Pepsi. I guess he wasn't listening too well, too busy reading the menu. They have lots of different things they are famous for, 2 inch pork chops, flower pot bread with strawberry butter and there pies. I ordered a pork chop but the smaller version, only 1 inch. Jeff ordered a fried chicken sandwich which he said was the best chicken sandwich he's ever had. It came with homemade potato chips which were really good and not greasy. All my sides were really good as well. The service was excellent. When we finished with our lunch we were both stuffed. Still we really wanted a piece of pie so we got one to go. We decided on chocolate cream pie with mile high meringue. We filled up the truck with fuel and headed back. Jeff felt like he needed to work off some of that lunch so he decided to wash the roof of the rig. Since we had no rules we thought we should take advantage, so many parks don't allow washing vehicles. With our lunch being so big we just had the pie for supper, it was as good as it looked. Tomorrow its St Louis or bust................

Saturday March 22, Oh my my, it's super foggy today. We were trying to wait for the fog to lift but it wasn't happening. Decided to make a trip into Port St. Joe. It was still foggy when we left, but as we drove on it cleared up more. Made the most of the trip. Went ahead and filled up the truck with gas. We like to get gas without the rig, so much easier. Went to the downtown area and walked around looking in the shops. The sun came out and turned into a real nice day. We went to the Piggly Wiggly to get some groceries. There is a nice outfitters store next to the grocery store. It has lots of fishing stuff, outdoor stuff, good stuff. I just happen to find some pink fishing gloves to match my fish grippers, kinda excited about that. We came back to our campground and its so nice. So to the beach I go.... It cooled off so I didn't stay that long. After supper took the dogs for a walk and it started sprinkling.... Looked up and a beautiful rainbow..:)
Sunday March 23, Again another foggy day and it really looked like rain but it didn't. It was one of those weirdest weather days, had everything. We stayed inside for the morning watching some movies. I need to tell about a funny neighbor we have. It's a female cardinal that has been visiting us everyday since we arrived. She sits on the ladder on the back of the rig and tap tap taps. I find it amusing. Really get to see her up close. The weather starting clearing up so I grabbed a book and a chair and went to the beach. Since neither of us got our walks this morning we decided to get the dogs and do an afternoon walk. We walked over to the other camp loop(whispering pines), then cut back to our camp loop (gulf breezes) via the boardwalk. First time I ever took the boardwalk, its really nice, has benches that overlook the marsh were you can always spot birds. It was picture perfect out right now, completely opposite of the weather this morning. We fixed supper and I looked outside and again with the weather, now the fog has moved in. It just keeps coming, well changing. I wonder what tomorrow will bring????
