Our Viva!

A short, two-day getaway to our favorite camping retreat in Florida (at least so far). There was a big storm the first night with heavy rain and strong winds that rocked the Viva. The campground was soaked the next morning, with huge puddles of water covering the campground road. Walking on the beach was difficult--the wind was whipping up the sand so much that it would get in your eyes and sting against your skin. There were huge waves, and no one was in the water. For most of the time, the beach was deserted. The winds did subside by the afternoon.

We were able to leave all the windows open the second night and fell asleep to a cool breeze and the soothing sound of the surf.

On this trip we didn’t get to lower the awning, put up the screen room, or have a campfire--but we still had a great time.

Small world department: while walking the dogs we ran into another couple from our development who were camping in their Tundra travel trailer. They have more room inside their rig than we do!

Check out the photos to see our cool new front license plate. The State of Florida issues just a rear plate, so people can put whatever they want on the front. Our license plate is TRAVELS, so we had a customized TRAVELS plate made. The Viva in the background is actually a photo of our Viva taken on our first western trip in June. Love it!

Gee, it seems like we were just here!

We arrived on Labor Day for a two night stay. The campground was nearly full, as usual, but it never seems crowded here.

We were treated to two spectacular sunrises. Although Rick would like to take credit, Linda captured the best sunrise pictures with her iPhone.
