    Got two free tickets to Daytona for yesterdays Race.
    I've never been to a NASCAR race hence now I am truly a bonified Merican.
    Home of 10 dollar beers.
    Had wings at Hooters. More Merican.

    Lots of birds including many Osprey and one Bottlenose Dolphin.

    Flushed the salt and packed up the gear today.
    Sunday we head west for more State Park action.

    Daytona Beach. Shades of Spring Break a few decades in the rear view. Beer was cold and the women are always 21. 390 mile drive tomorrow. 20190223_132635.jpg 20190223_144839.jpg 20190223_135245.jpg 20190223_145045.jpg 20190223_160932.jpg 20190223_180001.jpg

    Arrived Topsail Hill State Park a few days ago. Purportedly one of the most popular Parks in FL.
    Nice beach access. Water a bit cold for beach pompano.

    Here is the latest batch of pics.
    Went to the Factory Store for Bote
    Interesting skinny water craft.
    Around 3K for an inflatable version.

    Went to Mexico Beach. Major devastation from Hurricane Michael. Looks like the area was hit by a nuke. Widespread extension damage including Tyndall AFB.

    This trip finished with a 12 hour day driving from Topsail Hill Beach SP, Destin back to east TN.
    Great FL State Park Trip and we've already started some reservations for 2020.
    Heres the photo finish
    Including a nice grilled blue fish caught surf fishing.

    Both the Atlantic and the Gulf temps were a bit low to be recalling fishing productive and a couple of days the winds and surf were very uncooperative...maybe next year.

    Have four weeks already scheduled and reserved for 2020, and 4 weeks more to reserve when reservation windows open.

    In the meantime a two week trip to WI, time to get to New Galarus Brewing Company and Duluth Trading.

    Have a trip planned for the UP of MI on Lake Superior, near Munising, over Memorial Day week.

    I'm enjoying your pics a lot, thanks for sharing.

    I'm good with a trip to the beach once every few years, but my wife could probably live there. I'm using that fact (and pics like yours) to sell her on us moving into a more "mobile" living arrangement.

    Unpacked and unloaded. Always something to service fix or repair. Clean and reorganize.

    Here are the bladed, firearms, and EDC tool items that went on the trip. Also took along a scoped Marlin .22 rifle that went to the range. Had it for years and had never shot it. Part of an estate buy.
    Think I'm going remove the scope and put it on a semiauto.
    Just not a great combination.
    The handgun selection was based on need for exercise at the range.

    Yes it is. Quite beefy. I keep it in the toolbox for those times when I don't want to abuse the E6.
