A tail light bulb burned out so Pam tracked it down and replaced it. Not sure why but we have had a recurring issue with the tail lights and paid hundreds of dollars over the last 18 months dealing with it.
The drinking water was tasting funny, so while she was doing that, I replaced the water filter. Wish I'd done it a little sooner, it was pretty gross (see new and old filter at lower right portion of picture) and there was no question it was time for a new one.
Then we got on the road to Jacksonville. We took a look at the Pelican Park RV Campground Mayport Naval Air Station (NAS). We heard it was a good place to stay and put it on our list. It is right on the water and ships come and go with in a 100 yards of the campground.
We continued on to St. Augustine for a lunch date with Ed and Candice. We hadn't seen them in a couple of years and they drove over from Orlando. It was our first time at St. Augustine and it is a neat place to see. The narrow streets, the Spanish heritage and the history make it a very interesting place.
We had dinner back at the RV and fixed some snacks to take to the New Years Eve Concert at the campground. The Allegheny Sting Band played. They were REALLY good. They are a family band with Joe and Mary on the fiddle (and banjo and mandolin) with Beth on the guitar (and mandolin). Dad (Peter) plays the bass but I didn't get the right angle to get him in the pictures.
They have played at a lot of RV campgrounds, especially in the mid-Atlantic and southeast. If you want to book them, contact their manager Jackie (mom) here. You can also check them out on YouTube.
Saturday we went over to the pancake breakfast and enjoyed meeting some couples. We appreciated the effort folks put in here to keep make this a 'happening' campground.
It was a warm and beautiful 75 degree day. The course was in great shape with bermuda fairways and rough (hence the dormant look) and very white sand traps.
A highlight there was meeting Mike and Milly who are from Raleigh, NC. We joined up with them on the back time and had a good time getting to know them. They run the Swinging Golfers Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA) chapter that has a lot of golf rallies in Florida in the coming weeks. They are RVers and have a Tiffin Phaeton motor home.
Thanks for viewing the Roadrunner Chronicles today. We appreciate it!
