The reason for coming to St Augustine FL was for a Carriage rally. The rally was held at Stagecoach RV Park. This is the second rally in less then a month. Both rallies were a lot of fun and we did get to reconnect with friends. At both rallies we played a lot of games, had some great meals and great tech talks. We did some touring in the area, but it was like an old home coming as we spent 4 months in this area. The rally was a success with 29 rigs in attendance. We won't do another rally till Jan of 2013 which will be combined with the Great RV Show in Tampa.
While in ST Augustine we visited with friends Rodger and Sue that are volunteering at Anastasia State Park here in ST Augustine. It was fun getting together. Of coarse going out to eat is part of getting together. We went to out favorite pizza place in town. We got there for happy hour and had a good pizza. We should call meeting up with friends "meet and eats". On Saturday night we met up again to see the the lighting of the Christmas lights in downtown ST Augustine. There were a lot of people. The town was very crowed. We were here last year and it rained, this year it was just windy. About 7 years ago we were at the Christmas Holiday lighting in Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and Serville TN. All three cities did it on three night in a row. After the lighting we said good bye to our friends and headed back to the RV park.
Sunday morning we headed to Orlando. It was a drive of about 135 miles. We arrived at the Thousand Trails Clemont/Orlando by about 11 in the morning. We set up got out our bikes and rode around the park. Didn't see any familiar rigs, but I'm sure we have a few friends here. the park has almost 800 sites and it is about 3/4 full. We are trying to go through all the pictures from Charleston and Savannah to upload. For large uploads we use Webshots. As of December it is going away, or changing. So we will see what we can come up with. Keep in touch and stay safe. We will be in this area till Jannuary.
