After supper we walked around the pier and decided to have coffee and desert here-we had pineapple upside down cake and it was delicious. We sat out on the water and watched the pelicans and ducks.

I finally got a picture of Buddy the resident aligator at Cedar Key Resort :
After returning to the park we stopped for a chat with folks Rick had met earlier in the day when he was out walking the dogs. Beverly and Boyd are from New Brunswick just an hour away from us. We had to leave to get the furkids out for their walk..so we agreed that Bev and Boyd would come over and join us for a drink. We had a lot of gum flapping going on, and many laughs, come to find out Boyd and Rick knew a lot of the same people :)...as did Bev and I-so it was just like having company from home. Around 10:30 after we were sure we were making too much racket we all said our goodbyes, had hugs all around, exchanged phone numbers and emails and promises to meet up again back home, and they headed back to their motorhome and we headed into bed. I wanted to set the alarm for the morning but Rick said your always up with the birds so don't worry about it. And off to dreamland we ventured. We were so busy talking and laughing I didn't even think to snap off a picture!!
Tuesday: As luck would have it neither of us woke up till 8:45 this morning and we wanted to be on the road by 9. Well that isn't going to happen..(should have set that alarm). We had coffee checked our emails, and readied the coach for travel. Janna, Mike and Matt came out to say goodbye (Gail was away to town, sorry we missed you Gail)..and we got on the road around 10:45am heading for Carrabelle and our destination of "Ho Hum" park. Travel was good today, traffic was light and the weather perfect.
We pulled into this boat ramp which showed to be a nice rest spot. Paved loop to swing around in etc.
There was a class C MH already in there as well as a fiver and truck. All of a sudden we heard a big 'crunch and bang'...needless to say my heart stopped..I was sure the car swung into something. Rick immediately stopped the coach and we barrelled out to check things out. You can figure out the rest from the pictures. Once we realized the car was fine we both looked up toward the roof-Yup the tree was too low, and we were sure we had torn off the a/c units...Rick got out the extension for the ladder and up my brave soldier went, not knowing what he would find. Lucky for us it only tore the back shroud off the back a/c.. Why it missed the front a/c and the fan covers is beyond me.
|Yup We lost one shroud the back one!|
|And up he goes to access the damage!|
|Now do we go ahead to unhitch the car and back up?|
|doesn't look too bad|
|There is a dent|
|All fixed up with a Red Green Special|
Upon registration we were coming out of the office when I heard "hello are you Elaine"?-Elaine and Rick who were at Cedar Key Rv resort? I turned around and there was Joe of Joe's Journey. He invited us to pop over after we were all set up. We popped over on our way out for supper, and promised to drop in after we got back.
|Here we are parked up on lot 11|

Tomorrow is hopefully an 'early' travel day (yes I will set the alarm as we want to be on the road by 9) so I am heading to bed. Now I am 2 days behind on blog reading so that will be my job for tomorrow evening, to catch up with you all! Take care and 'be safe out there'....
