Harry and Judy's RV Trip
No Photos 6th Jul 2014 - Summer 2014
Day 1-July 6, 2014-We're off again

Day 1-July 6, 2014-To Bonifay, FL

Drove 276 miles in 5-1/4 hours-we stop A LOT!  And we got every red light on route 19.  Hot today, 96, although it doesn’t seem as hot here as last week in Homosassa with the 96 degree record.  Maybe it’s not as humid.

This is the first long trip with the new truck and we’re anxious to see how it goes.  We stopped at a campground right off I-10 between Tallahassee and Pensacola.  Got here about 3:30 and didn’t unhook from the truck or set up anything other than electric-we’re only here overnight on our way. Nice little campground with a pond and a little beach, pretty mimosa and pine trees and very quiet for the 4th of July week-end and almost empty.  Fine with us.  We read for a while and watched a couple of woodpeckers with brilliant white bellies have a territorial dispute over a tree with a squirrel. 

Got to be 8:00 really quickly so we had dinner and then realized that we must have crossed a time zone because our phones were an hour behind Harry’s watch so we gained an hour.  Again, fine with us. 

Went outside and people (and woodpecker) watched for a while, it’s really not as hot as it was back home, saw a pretty pink sunset then commenced the opening games of the fourth annual Rummikub tournament.
