Sep 27, 2014 - St Augustine Beach

St. Augustine Rain, rain, go away! I was looking forward to going to the beach, but unfortunately weather only allowed a small amount of beach time. Actually this is the first time during our whole trip that rain has been a problem. Dennis is back to work today, Saturday, attending the Bricklayer 500 competition in Jacksonville while I stayed behind and started packing up the RV. Right now as I write this, we are sitting outside under a gazebo which is about 200 steps from the Atlantic Ocean. Molly and I walked the beach today between the...

Jul 20, 2008 - St. Augustine weekend

We had a terrific time camping at Anastasia State Park this weekend. Of course, any trip to ST. Augustine Beach wouldn't be complete without a dinner at Osteen's! We also toured the St. George Street area in the historic section and the lighthouse museum. Anastasia State Park offers camping with beach access. The weekend offered perfect beach weather!

Jul 13, 2008 - 2nd Day at KSC and on to St. Augustine

Today was our day to leave Titusville, but we really wanted to go back to the Kennedy Space Center, so we decided to drive the RV over there.

Since we had been on the bus tour the day before, today we just concentrated on the things at the visitors center. We saw a 3D IMAX movie about the Apollo (moon landing) program that was pretty neat. We also...

With just one full day in Charleston, South Carolina, we decided to visit a plantation to get a sense of the old South. We visited Boone Hall, America's oldest working plantation. It was a beautiful, warm (78 F), sunny day, and we really enjoyed touring the 730-acre plantation, which at one time was nearly 4,000 acres. There have been four major houses on the plantation over the past 325 years, and interestingly, the current house was built in 1936 by a Canadian (Thomas Stone). The plantation is listed on the US National Register of...

Nov 21, 2007 - St. Augustine Beach

We crossed the state line into Florida and couldn't take the boredom of the road any longer! So with trailer, truck and rental truck in tow we pulled into Anastasia State Park, located in St. Augustine. We spent the night tucked into a tropical campsite. It was too cold to go swimming but the boys still put on their suits and played on the beach. We enjoyed the ocean, loved seeing the lighthouse and most importantly...finally put our toes in the sand! In the morning we pulled out and headed across the state to get to Luke's house in time...
