Anastasia StatePark-St Augustine FL 10/2010

Started our second month of volunteering. The beach is great, but the water tempeture is droping. Last month it was running between 82-85 degrees, and now it 77-78 degrees. This week the temps have been in the low 80,s, but expected to go to the high 80's  for the next week. It's just right now, nights in the 60's days in the 80's without a lot of hummidy. First two photo's show the electric cart we use to drive around the campground. That's Blazer wanting to go with Bob for a ride. The cart will go 25mph. Not sure if it is street legal, but it does have lights, turn signals and brake lights.
       The next photo shows are first pot luck with some of the other volunteers. Last month we were the only couple, this month there are 5 couple and 3 singles and another couple is coming in on Monday.
       The next photo is the St Augustine Ampitheatre across the parking lot from us where we heard some great concerts, with more coming this month.
        The next photo is a pumkin display in front of the courthouse.

Florida 10-2010

      Hi everyone, hope all is well with you. We are still at Anastasia State Park. Someone cancelled coming to volunteer and we were asked to stay another month. So we said yes. We do like the beach and the area so we are happy to stay another month. This is a really nice area that we are enjoying.  Finally we got out of the 90's.v Down into the 70's  80's.  with low's in the 50's & 60's.  From about 10 degrees above normal to 10 degrees below normal. Sept was unusually hot, this area had 93 days with temps above 90 degrees in a row.
             While here Linda celebrated another birthday.  We did go out to dinner with two of the new couples who came in next to us.  We had a couple of camp fires now that it is cooling off.  We will be spending more time going to the beach and kayaking, and just relaxing since we did tour a lot of the area already.
             We had  some questions about RV parks we stayed at, so we will try to include information about the parks we stayed at. We will label them as RV Parks so you can find them under that label on the far right of our Blog. We will try to include a few photo's and some info about the park.
       Someone told us about "bookcrossing", and how much fun it was. Since we read about 3-4 books a week(Linda 3.5-Bob.5) we decided to give it try. Go to  to learn more. We do exchange books all over were we travel so it will be interesting to see were they travel to.

Chester Frost Park-Hixon TN 6/2010

We stayed here 6-2010. Just outside of Chattanooga, on Chickamauga lake.   Rate was $25. for lake front, $23.50 for others sites. Very busy, no reservations. Sites are water electric only. About 190 sites,about half paved.  They do have a good dump station about 1/4 mile out of rv section for large rigs and 1 small one in the back of the rv park.  There are some pull thru sites, but most are back in sites.There is a lundry in the restroom building. Restrooms are very nice and private.  Park is very nice. This is our second visit here. We do enjoy this park and the area.
