Two Nights at Jetty Park

Because of work commitments, our vacations are generally of the weekend variety. Which may or may not actually fall on a weekend, by the way. In our most recent getaway, we had occasion to camp for two nights at Jetty Park in Cape Canaveral.… Continue Reading “Two Nights at Jetty Park”

It’s Only Three Weeks

It’s only three weeks until we set out on another camping adventure. This time it will be Jetty Park in Cape Canaveral, Florida. The park that’s well-known for — among other things — being very, very close to where the Cruise Ships launch in… Continue Reading “It’s Only Three Weeks”

What To do for Nat’l Tree Day?

A Quick Look Back Over Some…

I did want to take a quick look back over some of the outdoor fun I had this year. Although I would have loved to have had even more outdoor fun, I had plenty of it in 2019. Less than I’d like but undoubtedly… Continue Reading “A Quick Look Back Over Some…”

Dorian is coming, we’re getting ready

Hurricane Dorian is a fierce storm. I thought using the camp stove for our morning coffee would be a wise thing to do. So I set it up on the pool deck and we enjoyed a really tasty and robust cup o’ Joe this… Continue Reading “Dorian is coming, we’re getting ready”
