Carrabelle Beach RV Resort
Feb 15, 2014
As we travel toward New Orleans & Mardi Gras, we have now turned due West over the Gulf of Mexico and landed at Carrabelle Beach, FL.
On our way here, we stopped to visit Heidi & Richard Hill. Richard is the Present of RV Trip Wizard which is the online campground mapping software we are using to plan our trip across the country. We were treated to a fantastic lunch and wonderful conversation!

After lunch, we headed west toward Carrabelle Beach, and got within 40 miles when the truck started sputtering and spitting such that we had to slow down to about 40 mph until we could stop. We contact Good Sam Roadside Assistant, but it was going to take hours for someone to get to us to 'have a look'. So, I decided to put some diesel additive into the gas tank, and drain the fuel bowl of any water/contaminants. I did this because we had just filled up at a small gas station and I suspected bad diesel. Well, the truck started to run normal, and we finished our trip to Carrabelle Beach RV Resort to arrive just as the sun was setting!
While at the campground, we discovered that Carrabelle Beach, right across the street, was very famous during WWII. This was the beach that the military used to train for D-Day an the amphibious landing at Normandy beach!

We then took several rides on the scooter to see all the local sights, like the WWII Museum, the Carrabelle Police Station (smallest in the World), the Bottle House and the Crooked River Lighthouse! Take a look at the pictures and enjoy!
