Ho Hum, Florida

No, I'm not saying that it's boring to be back in Florida. We quite like the place! We're parked at Ho Hum RV park in Carabelle, Florida on the gulf coast. Right *on* the gulf coast!

When we ran into our friends Bob and Polly in Arizona - they told us they planned to do some workcamping next winter at a park called Ho Hum near Pensacola. As we were checking out the map of our route from Alabama - we said 'Let's get away from our old wheel ruts on I-10 and take the scenic route this time ... and, look! We could stay at Ho Hum and see what Bob and Polly are going to be doing next winter.' We splurged the $27 to park with our front windshield looking out over the beach. And, Odie just goes berserk running on the sand!

'Taking the scenic route' ain't all it's cracked up to be though. Yes it was pretty, but it took us about twice the amount of time as the Interstate, and it was a lot more stressful. So nice to be seeing water again ... after 6 months in the desert! If I put the following picture into a blog post in November and told you we were in Montana ... I'll bet you'd believe it was snow?! These are the famous white, sugar-sand beaches of the Florida gulf coast. Lots more photos on our Picasa Web Album. You can click on any picture above to get there.

We stayed at Ho Hum 3 years ago and really enjoyed it. I'm glad they didn't sell it to build a condominium like they had planned! Like you, we were on our way back from Arizona to Naples and decided to get off I-10. We didn't find Rte 98 stressful as we took our time and enjoyed the scenery. We also stopped at St Marks NWR just to visit as they don't have a CG. Anyway, welcome back to paradise!
