A little clip as we entered into the State Park Gates .... this was a first-run for us.
Our first visitors at the weekend campsite.....my daughter and her husband -- Jenna and Mark. Since the campground is a local spot, it was great to have family visit and join us for afternoon snack time.
We were definitely tucked away in the dense wooded area that surrounds this delightful preserve located in Mayport Beach in Jacksonville as we learn the ins and out of site selection and maneuvering around the trees and tree stumps. Quite a quest.
Found these little treasures on the miles-long stretch of beach just steps away from our campsite. The perfect spot. Just 2 steps the other direction, we found the huge lake surrounded by loads of fun things to do .. bike trails, water park, picnic areas, canoeing, and much more.
Ok Ok .. it's true. We decided not to cook out at the campground. We were way to close to the amazing Mayport Harbor where Singleton's Restaurant is and I couldn't pass up....
Yummy Yummy Crablegs with Oysters on the 1/2 for appetizer!!! Wowser.
I'm so lucky to have this sweet Landshark - Franky Baby- taking such good care of us as we move closer and closer to retirement and leading the GOOD LIFE!
Beautiful evening walk to the lake .. Even though it was only 3 days .. it was our perfect trial run. We are preparing for our next trip to visit Jaret and his family in Cape Coral. This time, we will be pulling right up on his property and next to his house. Should be another adventure!
