Home on the farm

Hi all,
We extended one more day at Betty's because of a nasty rain. We then drove to Fontainebleau State Park, just north of New Orleans. We had thought to stay a couple days here but ended up just hanging around for one night. It seems like a nice park and has a excellent bike trail going through the park. We will have to keep this in mind for a longer stay.
 Our next plan was a couple beach days, we are always able to get in at Rainbow Plantation in Summerdale. It is an Escapee park we have stayed at four different times now. Located about 40 minutes drive to Gulf Shores and during off season not a bad ride.
 We got one great day at the beach and the second day clouds seem to hang around. We got in a couple good walks so not all bad. We also made a stop at the famous Floribama Bar right on the border of Florida and Alabama. It is a unique place as it features several different bar areas in side, like they just kept adding on as they went along. We had one of their Bushwhacker drinks a frosty ice cream drink with a bunch of different rums in.
 So on Saturday we headed to our final destination for the winter, Live Oak Florida. Our oldest daughter Amanda had relocated here two years ago for work. We did come down the first year and volunteered at Suwannee River State Park about eight miles away. This time we are just going to set up in the back and work camp around here.
 Amanda has a cool little 30 acre farm and her menagerie of critters continues to grow. As we arrived her and hubby Pat were in the process of picking up the newest member an alpaca.

 So now the count is 17 goats, 2 donkey, 2 cows, 3 dogs,(and a partridge in a j.k.). So as I began writing this post and just got busy Amanda put a bid on two other alpaca and won so on Saturday we headed up to Douglas, Georgia to pick them up.
