And, Just What Have We Been Up To??

Not much….except spending some time with our grandkids, which we love.

I have done very little. I am still under the weather. This time with bronchitis, that I can’t seem to shake. I first thought I was just having a bad allergy season, but that wasn’t it. I had put myself on antibiotics and after finishing that up and waiting a week, I figured I needed to head back to dr. My head felt like I was in a chamber, had sore throat and cough that won’t quit. I was given a steroid shot to clear my head (and it did, within 7 hrs) and put on another 10 day stronger antibiotic. Hope it helps.. 

We were scheduled to leave Wednesday morning for Florida. We did…We wanted to take our time before reporting to Topsail for our month of workcamping.  We stopped the first night at Coushatta Casino in Kinder, La. We wanted to add La to our map. We have driven through it so many many times, but never stayed there. Mission accomplished!  What a great campground they have and only cost $18.  Of course it cost us alot more at the casino, lol.. 

Next night we stopped at Hollywood Casino, Bay St Louis, Ms. We always stop here, when we drive to and from Florida. Not sure if we will again though, cost us $35. for the night.. I don’t like to pay that for overnight stops.

Friday we continued on our way to Ft Pickens in Pensacola, Fl.  I had made reservations for a 4 night stay. It is such a pretty area, across from the National Seashore and the beautiful white sand beaches.  With Kevin’s pass, only cost us $10 a night. Only problem here, no sewer. Okay for 4 nights though. It has been quite a few years since we camped here.

On Tuesday we will head up the road to Topsail Hill Preserve. We will workcamp for the month of November.  They called us yesterday to confirm, and told us we will be once again driving the beach tram, our first day of work will be the 4th, which gives us several days to get settled. 

Until then..we hope to relax and enjoy the ocean!!
