It’s quiet in the campground with all the little eggs gone. Some monster sized rigs have come in to take their place but it’s been so cold, everyone is holed up inside.
We went to bed early last night after spending all day inside. Fixed an indoor meal of spaghetti and leftover chicken, splurged on a chocolate pudding cup and hot chocolate and jumped under the covers by 9PM.
Woke up hot this morning, threw off a layer of blankets and reached for my phone. 36 degrees outside according to the Weather Channel, how can I be hot? Checked the temp inside and the gauge said 48 0 . I guess it’s the JC Penne’ comforter because the only place that’s warm is buried under the covers!
This is our last full day at Fort Pickens Campground and the weather station promised abundant sunshine! Not sure if it will be warm enough to kayak before we leave….and the bikes remain packed in the back of the truck. I’m thinking maybe a long hike to the fort and back?
Tomorrow we’re heading east along the panhandle to join friends from home who are camping (for the month) at Mexico Beach. Not sure what to expect but they’re fishermen, well, she’s a fisherwoman! Hope to learn a little about Florida surf fishing.
This has been a great place to camp, just wish it had been a little warmer. Noticed that next weeks temps are all in the 60’s!
Notice the big grins! A frequent sight among our Casita group.
Unidentified orange flower… thought it might be Florida rosemary but the petals are not right.

Some locals showed me a path close to the nature trail that led out to the bay. Although I was not too far from the campground, it felt like I was in my own private world.
The rest of the pictures are from that walk.

Sand Pipers (?)
Don’t know if we will see much more of the beach after this week as most of our plans are for the interior of FL. I have loved this ocean time.
