Almost Time to Move Out

Wow, we are down to just a week left here at Topsail. Where is the time going? 

Last week we worked Wed, Th & Fri. It was not busy at all. Not a good thing, because time goes so slow.  Wed was cool and windy, we were bundled up in the morning. Not many folks going to the beach. We picked up lots of pinecones! Just in one spot, Kevin counted 600 just for him.. The following days the weather was warmer and sunny. We had a few folks going down to the beach but the campground is not very busy. But that is about to change. The weekend it will start filling up for Thanksgiving week, as quite a few schools are closed.

At 7am Thursday, I received a call from a Georgia State Park, offering us a volunteer position at one of their golf courses for the winter. I had filled out application online awhile back. Just this past week I pursued it a bit more. It paid off and we landed ourselves this gig. We will work either as a marshal, starter, cart barn or in pro shop. Sounds good and Kevin gets to play all the golf he wants..We are just hoping it doesn’t get too cold to take advantage of it. I may even learn to play!!  The timing works out well as our plans are to head up the east coast for the summer/spring. 

Saturday we did a few things around the home and settled in to watch some football.  Sunday we headed to the commissary at Hurlburt Field, to do our shopping.  We were there when they opened, to beat the crowds. That we did!  Kevin has decided that we wants to spend a nice quiet Thanksgiving here ourselves, so we bought all the fixings for a traditional feast. The campground does have a staff dinner at the clubhouse. They provide the turkey and everyone brings the sides. He would rather relax, watch football and EAT all he wants in the comfort of our home. (think he just likes my cooking!) Anyway, that is what we are doing, didn’t make a difference to me at all. I would have cooked up a turkey either way. Love the smell of it cooking and love having the leftovers…

Yesterday, I started my day sitting outside having my tea. What a beautiful day.  I headed to the outlet stores and did some Christmas shopping.  I do online shopping ,but also enjoy getting into the stores and hearing the music and seeing the decorations. I will not do this on black Friday!!  I came back, picked up Kevin and we drove to the harbor in Destin where we have a favorite place we get seafood. We sat outside on the deck and both had grouper sandwiches. We enjoyed, but were a bit disappointed in the fish, didn’t have much flavor.

Today we are not sure what the plan will be. We may head down to the beach for a few hours if the sun will stay out. Forecast is for cloudy sky’s.

We will work our last three days this weekend. It should be busy. On Monday, we pack up and leave this beautiful Emerald Coast. We will head back to Tx for December. We are already scheduled to babysit when we get back for 3 days…….Until then

Everyone have a VERY HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!!
