We have the bay right out the back door, and we're able to lock our kayaks up "on the dock of the bay", so we're able to go out in the kayaks anytime.
The other afternoon was especially exciting. There were many dolphins jumping and showing off their acrobatics... and we had a front row seat! Unfortunately, we hadn't taken the camera out. I doubt that we would have lucked out with our timing for a good action photo anyway.
We checked out the Destin Harbor Walk another day. Not Impressive. We couldn't find a parking space on the weekend, so we tried again during the week. We found a parking space, but half the shops were closed!
One thing is a given... EVERY day, we visit the Gulf. I get excited about it every day. Every day it's different on the ocean. Some days it's all calm... other days it has 6 foot waves! I like it all.
We've really got into collecting shells. We've even lost a phone because of going too far into the waves in search of that seashell.
We've been here 2 1/2 weeks, and I'm sad that we have less than 2 weeks left. We could live here!
But we don't... our home has wheels, so we will move on down the road.
We do plan to get some maintenance done while here, though. Some of the rubber stripping on our slides was totally dissolved, so we ordered new stripping from the factory, and replaced it.
We also noticed that the trailer tires have become really worn, just on the inside... but I calculated the mileage on these tires, and it's over 23k miles! So we will just get new tires. Taking the truck in for new tires is one thing, but hauling our home in, is another thing... as most of my readers know! So we were thrilled when we came back from the beach yesterday, and there was a mobile tire service at another site. So we spoke to them and they will be replacing our tires tomorrow!
Next on the maintenance list is several things on the truck. We have new batteries on truck and 5er, we have new tires on the truck and will soon have new tires on the 5er. But its time for some routine maintenance on the truck, and we need a glow plug replaced, and the latest is noise coming from the alternator.
We were happy to have a visit from RV friends, Duane and Louise, yesterday. We met on the beach, then had dinner together. It was great seeing them again. Hopefully, we will meet up again in Arizona or California. If its in California, then we will have a motorcycle with us again, and we can ride together.
Lovin' life here on Florida's Emerald Coast... Where are you lovin' life?
