It's getting warmer down South and we were ready for continuous electric hook ups, so we left Ft. Pickens and came west 50 miles back to Gulf State Park, in Gulf Shores, Alabama, where we were last week.
We are staying here two nights and then moving to Abbeville, Louisiana. There's an RV park there that has been highly recommended. One more night on the road after that and then to Trisha's.
This morning at 8:30 we heard the Blue Angels roaring by. We hopped in the car with binoculars and camera and headed to the end of the island to watch their practice. I got ready to take a picture and the batteries were dead in the camera. No pictures. If you ever have the opportunity to see the Blue Angels perform, please go see them. They are amazing. There are six pilots in Navy jets that perform all kinds of death defying acts.
After the practice we headed back to the mh, had a bowl of Cheerios and sliced bananas (aren't you fascinated by our breakfast choices?!?!), put away all of the things that work their way out of the storage bins, and headed here! It's only an hour.
We found a laundrymat, which was the cleanest one we've been to, and proceeded to take care of all of the dirty laundry. With that job done, we can do whatever we want tomorrow.
Right now there are no plans; we will make that decision tomorrow.
I do have to tell you about supper. We bought 16 ounces of fresh crab meat a few days ago at Joe Patti's Seafood Market. I checked out "crabcake" recipes on the internet and used parts of three recipes and made crabcakes for supper. Even though I was the chef, I do have to say they were delicious! UM-m-m. There were even a couple left over for tomorrow's lunch.
It's beginning to feel like summer here. It was 74 degrees when we got up and made it into the mid 90's this afternoon. Thankfully there is always a breeze along the coast.
