Approaching the coast

Feeding Moment

We are at the Elks lodge in St. Augustine, Florida (map). We've been here several times before, but this is the emptiest it has been, with only a single other rig in the lot. There are perhaps ten hookups here, for $15 per night.

We did not feel the need to visit St. Augustine, but this was the only reasonable parking with power between Jacksonville and Cocoa Beach. There is a nice state park on the coast, but it was full for the weekend. Two other state parks had plenty of space, but they are in hardwood hammocks and have length and height restrictions. We might fit, but we were unwilling to take that risk with no backup plan (they are south of here).

Once we got parked, Louise found a nice Italian place for dinner. However, by the time we were ready, the heavens had opened and we were deluged by a thunderstorm. Rather than even take the scooters out, we walked over to the covered Tiki Bar here at the lodge and had burgers for dinner. The lodge also does a nice Sunday breakfast spread, so we had two meals in a row there. The scooters are still in the bay.

Shortly we will be rolling to Cocoa Beach.
