Awake: 8:07am Temp 52 sleep 6+42 sunny overnight @ St. Augustine, FL.

After a good & healthy (2) egg omelet from Kathy, we say our goodbyes to our near RV neighbors & leave the Indian Forest Campground @ 11:50am; following I-95 northbound to Jacksonville, FL & arrive @ the Pecan Park RV Resort @ 1:29pm.

Today's travel: 58 miles 1+20 time 9 gal used 6.3 mpg 43 mph avg speed.

When checking in I questioned the host about the park name & are there Pecans in the area? He told me I could have every one I found in the park @ no charge; (539) campsites on this property with very few small trees & so much for a pecan hunt.

This RV Park is directly affiliated with the Flea Market adjacent to the campground & it's open Sat. & Sun. from 8:00am to 5:00pm. Can you guess where Kathy spent the next (2) hrs? Meanwhile, during her absence, I spend some time on our computer + start searching for the next campground.

The good news: she was tough & only purchased a jar of mint jelly for tonight's dinner.

Before & during the setting sun, we walked every asphalt road in this campground for curiosity & exercise, which amounted to (1) hr. Also, this was the 1st time I've witnessed a motorhome that has a full side slide-out on one side & (2) slides on the opposite side.
Several yrs ago, on a Friday, October 20, 2006, the owner & President of the HWH Company, Paul, showed Kathy & me the initial start-up for making a full side-slide for motorhomes.

Dinner: lamb chops with mint jelly, asparagus, brown rice & a mixed salad.

Finish watching movie: "Bombshell" with Jean Harlow, Lee Tracy, Frank Morgan, Franchot Tone, Una Merkel, etc. Devastating satire of 1930's Hollywood, with Harlow a much-abused star, Tracy an incredibly unscrupulous publicity director making her life hell. No holds barred. 1933. This movie was a little too rowdy for Kathy but I rather enjoyed it.

Lights out: 12:17am
