Campsites….

We traveled from Kentucky, to Tennessee, to Arkansas in just a few hours. Almost always, unless we have a destination with a time restriction, we amble. I sometimes feel bad and do the speed limit, but mostly we like to amble. This is our first time in an Arkansas state park, and we liked it a lot. This is the kind of park we would have spent a few days in, if we would have had the time. Way off the main road, no cell service, no close neighbors and plenty of squirrel’s….

This is the view of our site from the bath house, which, by the way was really nice…

The bacon Pig. We could not have made this trip without our faithful piggy. The biggest problem with him is keeping him full…

Bardstown Kentucky…


ky10

We decided, for some reason to stay in Bardstown Kentucky at “My old Kentucky home State Park.” It turned out to be fun and we are glad it did as we stayed much longer then we intended to. Our only credit card was compromised so we had to hang around for a few extra days and have two new ones sent to us. We used Kenny’s Cleaners for laundry twice, had lunch downtown, shopped Kroger’s, Boones meat market and Walmart, enjoyed two different sites within the park and four different museums. This little town had a lot going on…

We found these museums to be great for such a small town. Lots of history on all wars, on woman historically, especially the Civil War….

This ramp leads to the only door. The door that the Lord closed the day of the Flood…Genesis 7:16 “And those that entered, male and female of all flesh, went in as God had commanded him. And the LORD shut him in.”

Creation Museum, part 2…

Mount St. Helens is an event that evolutionist don’t like to talk about….

I really don’t know what to say about this???…

So we came out to eat lunch, and found this classic motor home (classic means old and smelly) next to us with it’s generator running non stop, and you guessed it, smelled of gas fumes, from being old. So, we skipped lunch to finish the museum. Well worth the trip, we were blessed. The next day we pulled out of the Ark Encounter parking lot and passing by the RV parking spots, and yes, there was the same classic smelly motorhome. And yes, the smelly generator was running full speed…

We visit the Creation Museum….


cm02

We spent almost two full days at the Creation Museum and can highly recommend a visit. As a believer, it is way cool to see the Bible come to life, using science and common sense to see the lies in evolution. To see the evidence for a young earth. The best thing is they present the Gospel !!!

Our last day at the Beach…

If you can see the lower right side of this sign, there are some important marine life that one may encounter that were left off of this list…Like sharks and sting rays, which we encountered on our next to last day at the beach…

fl29

We biked to the beach and saw this set of flags, which we had to look up. We knew the yellow flag means to use caution for rip tides, but the purple flag? That means dangerous marine life, like the ones left off the placard from above…Yikes…We did not get any photos, but spotted one large sting ray in very shallow water and several sharks, not very far from shore…

fl28

This is early in the morning. We set the alarm, made coffee and went to the beach to enjoy it. We have never had our morning coffee like this before! We could not stop Praising God for all that He has given us. It was with great regret that we left the Florida panhandle, a place that we never intended to ever visit, after living here forty years ago, turned out to be so great for us…

Camping by the ocean…


fl15

We stayed two days at Grayton Beach state park, near Santa Rosa island. Nice campsite, I reserved it over the phone and the nice lady told me that there was an issue about backing into it. Seems some had difficulty, not us..

fl16

This path led straight to the facilities. Nice showers and they were free….

fl21

A very short bike ride from our spot to here. Even if the weather is iffy, we are at the beach…

fl20

Who knew that pelicans flew in formation? Hundreds passed over at different times, this was the best shot I could get, lying on my back, on the beach, at the ocean…

We caught this freeloader trying to get out of Florida….He was hanging on the door jam of the truck….
