Some Beach

Hi all,
We pulled into Stagecoach R-V Park on Sunday after a short two hour ride. We settled in pretty quick and just browsed through the many brochures we had picked up. We have heard parking in downtown St. Augustine is a pain, but they do run a trolley shuttle and something called the Red Train Tours. You can get a three day pass for $23.00, a one day is $20. So now to decide which three days we want to do our touring.  There is a big seafood festival this weekend so we want to make sure we do the trolley on one of the weekend days.
 So the past few days we have just been exploring different beaches. I know pretty rough life. We have got some good exercise with some long walks on the beach and Wendy gets even more with the beach stooping looking for treasures.

 One day we visited Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve (thats a mouthful). It encompasses 60,000 acres of differing coastal habitat and includes a environment education center. Along with a boat launch and fishing area and there is about 10 miles of hiking trails. Wendy and I opted for a nice three mile hike through pine woods to a view of the Tolomato River.
 It was nice to walk along in the shade after baking in the sun on the beach.

  Friday the weather is suppose to be cool and rainy so we want to use that to better plan our route after Florida.
 Wendy had received a call from Lance our supervisor at Custer State Park. He had left a message saying he had good news and bad news. The good news was she would get a raise. The bad news they were raising the camp cost for paid workers in the park. She will still earn a bit more than last year so we decided to go ahead with the plan. She will be doing pretty much the same job she did last summer as a campground attendant and I will return to hosting in Stockade North. We look forward to a great summer and welcome anyone to stop by if you are in the area.

  1. Love the beach pictures. Too bad about the raise in price for the site, but hopefully the raise in pay will cover the difference. Safe travels north!
