We left Georgia this morning, it rained all night long and we were a little hesitant to leave after hearing about all of the icy roads; however, as we approached interstate 95 at noon, all looked good. It was 35 degrees as we crossed over into Florida.
We called our grandson in Savannah to see how he survived the storm last night, and he reported that he was called off of work today, as they still had ice and it was felt not safe for them to work outside today. He decided it was a good day to repaint his bathroom.
We arrived at the camp ground at 2:30 pm and got into our spot. It was a pull through slot, and Lou decided that he would get hooked up and unhook the car later. We are right on the water and the wind was blowing and it is very cold. Thankfully, we have 50 amp hookups here and I plugged in our ceramic heater along with our furnace and after two hours, the furnace finally cut off. Lou came in and I made him a huge mug of hot chocolate and homemade chicken salad for a late lunch.
He was delighted when I got our cable downloaded and we get over 40 stations, so we enjoyed our lunch and watched television and he warmed up with the heater on his feet and legs. Welcome to Florida. We enjoyed some of the ships come up the St. John River while we relaxed over our meal. We love this Naval Station and all of the activity. We kept saying wish Matthew were here, he would love seeing all of the helicopters and the ships along with the tugs on the river.
