Where I stayed
McKinney Falls State Park Campground
We left in the morning looking for a Farmers Market. The various navigational devices only came up with one reasonable choice. It's the Sprouts Farmers Market, but it's really a store. Lynn found a couple of needed items. The most outstanding thing was the friendliness of all of the staff. It's a concept of this company, which, in fact, is a chain.
Next we sought out a Flea Market. I'd found one on the internet that looked interesting, so we drove the fifteen miles to check it out. It's in a mostly Mexican area and caters mostly to the Hispanic population. Lots of fancy clothes, dress up parts for cars and jewelry among many others. Neither of us found any "tempters", but I did find a nice, very clean rest room
I used the Droid to find a Mexican Restaurant. It was just across Lamar Boulevard, not a hundred yards from the Bazaar Flea Market.
We decided to order a plate of appetizers, which included Quesadias, which is spelled wrong, Nachos and Flautas. Guacamole and sour cream accompanied the items, along with a very tasty salsa and chips. It was plenty for the two of us, but I must admit, that we DID clean up the plate. The food was very good and the service excellent. We overtipped our server, which we like to do especially for the younger folks working away at getting by.
Then we stopped by a Home Depot. I'm looking for back-up circuit breakers for the 120v. on Shorty. We use a number of space heaters plus the microwave and Lynn's Appearance Modifying Apparati. Often the breakers do just that, break. They do wear, thus our search... No luck at the Depot, so I'll have to look at a large RV parts spot, I believe.
Back at the campground, I tested out my new, replacement, anti-gravity chair. It seemed to work every bit as well as the one I had replaced
Later, as it quieted down a bit, I spotted a large hawk-like bird close to the coach. It looks like a large hawk to me, but is a variety with which I'm not familiar. I got a couple of good shots, so have at it... Make your guess.
We'll work on our reservations in Florida this eve, so we don't have to sleep in the street there. To spread out the driving, we'll need about five spots of varying days in length to make it work. It'll be about five hundred miles from Pensacola to our spot near the Everglades. Lynn is toiling at it now as I type. I like this part better. ;o)
We'll see you next at Lake Livingston State park, not too far from one of my favorite states, Louisiana. Again, thanks for checking us out.
