One of the best things about being on vacation is not having to rush out the door in the morning to work or school. We have taken advantage of this and when it works out we have taken turns going for a run on the beach in the morning. It's been a great way to start the day!
We found most of the people at the campground were older retired couples, and not too many families, likely because of the time of year. It kind of made our children popular around the place and lots of people would stop, talk, say how cute they all were, and even give them cool shells they found. We met lots of nice people and have found there is quite a community spirit in most of the State Parks we have stayed at. People are very generous with recommendations and tips and have even offered us maps! A lot of people are proud of their RV's and trailers and love to show you the inside of them. We had fun touring through a trailer that we might like to upgrade to after this trip or maybe even during! We are happy with our trailer and decided on something smaller so it would be easy to tow and tour with, plus wouldn't be too hard on the gas tank. We needed something that would sleep 5 easily and we thought a hybrid would be perfect for us. We have found it a little bit of a pain having to unfold the 2 ends with how much we're moving around but feel that ultimately this trailer has been perfect for this trip.
We spent a lot of time on the beach playing in the sand and swimming in the waves.
As we were going for a walk along the beach we came across a small shark that was dead on the sand. We all took the opportunity to have a good look at it and even looked inside it's mouth to see its teeth. A little gross I know, boys!
St. Joes was an absolute moment of solitude for our family. It felt like we had stepped off the beaten track, caught our breath, and were rejuvenated!
