Hi everybody and HAPPY NEW YEAR. After 2 great months at Anastasia State Park as volunteers, in ST Augustine Fl we hit the road for Three Flags RV Resort in Wildwood Fl. It was a easy trip of 120 miles. See our review of this park in our archives under RV Parks Fl. Here is a little update. The park is about 3/4 full. Activities planned for the week. We have a back in site in the rear of the park. Its is a little more private. Its is about 150 feet long and backs up to some woods. Now we have a nice view out our big back windows. In the front is a small intersection, so no RVs in front of us. Side to side it is a little close. We are on Site 97.
But first let me diverse a bit. Checked our blog this morning and saw we had 98 hits (I know its not like Twitter where a million hits make the news), from www.hitchitch.com . So went to their sight and saw we are listed as a new listing to their web site. Hitch Itch is a website for Rvers. Their sites states "We connect people sharing their RV lifestyle". There are many blogs on this site that we follow. Thank you Hitch Itch. We had their web site in our favorites for years. It is a great site for rver's and great information. We go to their site almost ever day.
We spent the last week at Anastasia winding down. The park was full. Started to say our good- byes to the friends we made there, Rodger and Sue, Jim and Joyce, Phil, Bob and Diana and Vern and Pat. We had a couple of great campfires, and all told tales of their passed adventures, and talked about future planes. What a hot colorful fire. Jim places a small copper pipe with a hose inside of it for a super colorful fire. The picture doesn't do it justice.
New years eve we parked in the large parking lot at the beach and took the shuttle to ST Augustine Beach. St Augustine Beach is a small town bodering Anastasia St Pk., and just south of St Augustine. They were having "Beach Blast". A big carnival type event for New Years eve, with little parking, hence the shuttles from 4 or 5 places around the area. We went with two other couples, Sue and Rodger who we volunteered with this year and Paul and Sandy who we volunteered with last year. They are taking our spot starting Jan 1st. We had a "blast", a day that ended about 1AM for us. Much, much later then we are use to. AND...... we had to get up early to leave and make room for Paul and Sandy who were moving into our spot. We were up by 7AM, but didn't get on the road to 9:45. We didn't see Paul and Sandy before we left. They were in a park about 10 miles away. I guess they slept in to give us time to vacate their spot. But Rodger and Sue were there to see us off.
New Years eve we had dinner at the Sunset Grill. We had dinner up on the roof over looking the event and the beach. They had a special menu for New Years eve. The food was super. After dinner we walked back along the beach to our park. At 8:30 they had a great fire works show. We sat at the beach and watched the fire works then headed to a pub to finish out the night. It was a fun time that lasted much later then we are use to. Even Blazer got into the act.
We are looking forward to a year of travel and fun seeing new places and making new friends. Haven't made plans passed the 22nd of this month, but we are planning on going to the Everglades. We are going to a Carriage rally in Bushnell, then the Tampa RV show to the 15th. Then to the FT Myers area to visit with friends along the gulf coast. If anyone is in the area, let us know so we can get together.
