Boy, its been a long time since I updated this WebSite. |
We left White Sands National Monument Sept. 14 and have not updated since then.
All the while we were in Arizona and Utah we were in contact with Connie at Outdoor Resorts. They were behind on resurfacing the resort roads and no renters were allowed in. So we took our time heading east. We went slightly out of the way to San Antonio and spent two days in the KOA pool and also going to 2 of our favorite Tex-Mex restaurants. (We have seen enough of River Walk and the Alamo)
When we were in a campground just east of Houston we met a couple heading west. They told us about a new and very good campground next to the French Quarter in New Orleans. So we were going to head there. Well it turns out that a tropical depression in the northern gulf turned into a tropical storm and was heading that way. So we decided to head passed the Florida panhandle ASAP.
We spent 4 days looking at motor homes at, Lazydays RV, the worlds largest RV dealer in Tampa. Decided we already had what we wanted and left for Fort Myers Beach for 7 days. Finally got a call from Connie that the road to our campsite was paved and we should come in.
Sept-Oct is the rainy season at Melbourne Beach. We had high winds and quick monsoon rains every afternoon for 3 weeks. Then hurricane Noel passed by and we got more wind and rain!
