Ron and Hazel's 'Travels with Nuggie' travel blog

That looks like snow, but it is really very white sand.

All ready for a walk around the park.

Fishing must be good, lots of boats in the camp.

Hazel read herself to sleep in the captain's quarters.

After leaving Old Pavilion RV Park at Keaton Beach, we traveled North and West to see Hazel's aunt and her family near Panama City, staying at Pine Lake RV Park nearby in Fountain, Florida. We did this exact thing before in 2011. Hazel's aunt is in her mid-80's, lives a very short distance from her son and his family, so we visited with everyone in one trip.

While Hazel and I have been very lucky when it comes to health issues, this family has not, including kidney failure and dialysis, and after a healthy discussion about being unhealthy, I thought I was coming down with all kinds of things. I sure wish these folks luck.

After a "Minnesota Goodbye", we finally got on the road, heading to River's Edge RV Park near Holt, Florida. I called ahead for a reservation, good thing I did, the office closes at 4:30 PM, and we finally arrived three hours after that.

Located on the Yellow River, the camp is evidently popular with fishermen, it seemed half the RV's were pulling boats. While all RV parks have their quirks, this is the first one I'd seen that limits wifi usage to 15 minutes a day. I was in the office the following morning, paying for a second night, and when they handed me the "rules", I read "wifi, 15 minutes a day ... " out loud and chuckled. The woman glanced up and gave me that "trouble-maker" look. Fortunately, my unlimited Sprint internet device was getting a strong signal, and I didn't need theirs.

Hazel and I drove into Crestview, 12 miles away, and had lunch at a nice Mexican restaurant, offering two-for-one margaritas. Hazel didn't like hers, so I had to drink both of them. Then, a trip to Walmart for provisions, and back to camp.

On Sunday morning, I cranked down the antenna, hooked up the tow car, and off we headed the 140 miles to Ocean Springs, Mississippi for three nights at the Gulf Islands National Seashore RV Park, one of our favorite places.
