Dec 6, 2015 - Florabama

It's been quite a productive week, albeit not much seems to have gotten done - how's that for an oxymoron :P We lost Kathy, Jack and Julie - back to the heat and hills of Escondido, California and things seem very quiet. But the lack of bustle is allowing us to make progress towards our business visa....we had a long call from our Immigration lawyer laying out the steps we need to take .....all baby ones heading in the right direction. :) So my head has been down, laptop focussed, brain engaged....Business plan, Resume's, Source of Funds,...

Feb 10, 2014 - Perdido Key - the Nina and Pinta

Drove to Perdido Key and the Oyster Bar to witness the Nina & the Pinta sailing into Perdido Key. When we arrived, there was a hawk sitting on a wire near the Oyster Bar. When Columbus and his men sailed off to discover new lands, beginning in 1492, it was a formidable mission. A fool’s mission. And one that changed all of our lives. Their vessel was a tiny ship dubbed the Niña. Only 65 feet long, she was a mere speck on the Atlantic. Yet Columbus sailed her over 25,000 miles. The crew rode her over the rolling, white-foamed waves, their...

Jan 17, 2014 - Reggi's Birthday - Perdido Key

Reggi wanted to go to Perdido Key, we ate lunch at the Perdido Key Oyster Bar Restaurant and Marina. We had a wonderful meal - oysters on the half shell, Oyster Po-boy and Blue Crab sandwich. We then went to the beach, it was windy and cold, but the wind sculpted the sand beautifully. Reggi said she had a wonderful birthday.

Dec 31, 2013 - Perdido Key, FL

It was a short, 130 mile hop from Biloxi to our next stop, Perdido Key. This barrier island is located in extreme northwest Florida and southeast Alabama. No more than a few hundred yards wide in most places, Perdido Key stretches some 16 miles from Orange Beach, AL to Pensacola, FL. We settled into our space, which backs up to the ICW (Intracoastal Waterway). We had our own private beach a few steps from the door, and a view of the water from our windows. A great blue heron lived right outside our door, and bottlenose dolphins could be...

Nov 23, 2013 - Maiden Voyage

Bill and I decided to purchase an RV since my daughter Ashley joined the Navy and it would allow us to go anywhere we could drive. We settled on a small 27 foot fifth wheel that Bill's Nissan Titan could pull. Our very first trip was down to Perdido Key, FL (West of Pensacola) to see Ashley for Thanksgiving. We booked a one month stay at Perdido Cove (http://perdidocove.com/). We took the 8 hour drive from South Carolina to Florida and made it to the park without any issues. What a great RV park it was and our spot was had a very nice view...

Feb 29, 2012 - Sunsets at Playa del Rio

One of the very best parts of being in lower Alabama and Perdido Key, Florida are the gorgeous sunsets. They vary nightly, but all are beautiful. I am posting just a few of the sunset photos I took this winter so you can enjoy them with us!

Feb 28, 2012 - Food, Fun and Friendship at Playa Del Rio

We spend a lot of time eating and having fun with friends at Perdido Key! The group that is staying here for the winter is awesome. Many couples have been here for several winters, while others are here for the first time, but we have become one big happy family. Every evening we have 5:00 Happy Hour down at the clubhouse. Whether it is soda, coffee, tea, alcohol, wine or water - everyone comes down, visits, teases, laughs, and watches the incredible sunsets over the Ol' River together. And we eat - and eat - and eat. It is a good thing I...

We arrived on New Year's Eve at Perdido Key and Playa del Rio RV Park for our third winter visit, just in time to meet up with a bunch of our RVing friends to celebrate the New Year of 2012. The people we have met here are the best and we love to visit here!

Feb 26, 2011 - Pensacola Lighthouse Pensacola, FL

I enjoy hiking to the top of lighthouses. 177 steps to the top. The view from the top is usually great. There are 16 Gargoyle heads aligned with 16 round knobs on the hand rail at the top of the lighthouse that are aligned with the 16 points of the compass. It is also the most haunted lighthouse in the US. There are these painted Pelicans all over Pensacola.

Feb 26, 2011 - Pirates’ of the Lost Treasure of the Mardi Gras Perdido Key, FL 022611

While walking Rascal one day I stopped to read the campground bulletin board. There was a notice about a boat parade for the “Pirates of the Lost Treasure of the Mardi Gras”. The flotilla ends at FloroBama - the Florida /Alabama line on Perdido Key - and everyone has a big party.

Feb 6, 2011 - food feasts in FL and AL

We do enjoy socializing at the RV Park! This Thursday, Fred and I hosted the third shrimp feast held at the park since we arrived on New Year's Day. This time we had yummy fried shrimp, super tasty steamed shrimp, and also delicious grilled shrimp. Our friends Tommy and Peggy rode over to Joe Patti's in Pensacola with Fred and me to get lots of fresh shrimp. I helped as prep and clean up chef and made a darn good strawberry cheesecake pie for dessert, but Fred and Peggy did the most work, preparing the fried and grilled shrimp. Other RV...

Jan 20, 2011 - Fun in Florida continues

We have been enjoying our time here at Playa del Rio RV Park in Perdido Key, FL! The RV park is tiny - there are only about 30 slots for RVs, but it is located on lovely Old River which separates narrow Perdido Key from even smaller Ono Island. The Intracoastal Waterway is just on the other side of Ono Island; some days we as we drive along Canal Road we can watch the barges and cruisers heading up or down the Intracoastal. There is a dock on the river at the end of the RV park where we watch the pelicans, the great blue herons and...
