A Scouting Expedition Of Sorts…

Jim says: Yesterday I headed out on a scouting expedition of sorts. I drove the Bronco about 35 miles east along the Gulf Highway. I stopped at a couple of VFW’s where I may want to park my motorhome. They had smaller parking lots so I’m unsure about them. Then to a Camping World Store and bought some needed items.

Then I crossed the Navarre Causeway Bridge on to Santa Rosa Island.

Approaching Santa Rosa Island with the Gulf of Mexico in the background.

Turning right I drove the two lane road that runs westerly for about 20 miles back to Pensacola Beach. In the middle between the two extremity points is a 7 miles stretch of a gorgeous white sugar sand beach.

The Gulf Islands National Seashore white sugar sand is just about blinding in the Florida sun. This stretch is 7 miles of zero development.

I wanted to explore possible overnight parking places. Lo and behold, I found several where I can park the motorhome overnight and no charge. The fees do not start until Memorial Day Weekend. So, when I depart my present location at the American Legion in Pensacola…this is where I will head.

How long will I stay? Who knows? Whenever to mood strikes me…I’ll move on. I just love being a full-time RVer!
