Rocky Bayou State Park, Niceville Fl….


fl11

This is a nice park. A bit of a drive to the beach, but it made up for it in quiet ambiance. The bay can be seen through the trees, included at no charge, alligator warning signs…

We think the Destin, Santa Rosa area has the best beaches, at least for us…

Our first of a couple of nights of seafood feasting. A place called Nick’s, east of Rocky Bayou, great seafood and it felt like an authentic panhandle joint…Yes that is a chicken roosting outside of the entrance to Nick’s…

This was our view from the second big feast, the Original Crab Shack in Fort Walton Beach. More great food, all seafood. We lived in this area 40 years ago and remember it as such a small town, local feel. Now the traffic rivals any big city…

I did not get a photo of our campsite, but so far we have been staying in state park sites and they have been nice, water and electric, nice facilities. This is part of Big lagoon near Pensacola…

Alabama….

We were in front but had to take off as the waves were crashing over the bow…

We never thought that we would drive onto a ferry boat ever. It was way cool. This huge ship passed right in front of us…

We crossed Mobile Bay on a ferry boat! This is the view from the drivers seat as our truck and trailer were parked in the center and everyone was directed around us. We were first on and last off, which was okay with us.

We left RMNP for Granby Colorado for supplies and to check email (no service whatsoever in RMNP). A AZDR team had already been dispatched to mud-out homes in Baton Rouge. I called and we immediately set out. Three days and 1340 miles later here we parked for the next 19 days…

Passing 10,000 feet on our way to over 12,000 in elevation. The temperature dropped to the middle thirties. A few days later, it snowed at the peak, in August…

We go Racing….Colorado Springs, Colorado…


Well, not us but our friend Bruce from Denver Colorado. Bruce is a legend in Colorado racing circles and a member of the Colorado Motorsports Hall of Fame. Any form of two wheels you can think of, Bruce has raced it, and some four wheeled vehicles also. He is a great Christian Brother. Bruce can also fix and or repair anything with a motor, build houses, do detail work and make it all look easy. ¬†We had so much fun, vintage racing is so cool. Like senior rodeo, guys that can hardly move, limp, groan, look old, or otherwise look bad physically. They are transformed when the bikes come off the starting gate. They joke around, care for each other, fix each other’s machine, congratulate each other. We followed Bruce to his home, watched the sun set over the Rocky Mountains, had a very quiet night and good fellowship over morning coffee…
