Christmas Day Golf

Pam and I golfed 18 holes of golf at Palm Creek on Christmas; all golf was free on Christmas! We had a fun day enjoying the course and playing a nice round of golf; Palm Creek is a nice Par 3 course and an easy walk with our new 4-Wheel carts.

The other day, we played golf in a couple’s scramble and our foursome took second place with a score of 2 under (52). We then we played pickleball in the evening; we were the last ones playing and had to turn all the lights off.

Last night we enjoyed the hot tub. Life is great!

New Mexico

After Austin, we left for a week in New Mexico in “Dark Sky” country. We planned to stay 3 nights at Rusty’s RV Ranch, but enjoyed the peace and quiet so much, we stayed a full week.

Rusty’s is in the high desert at 4,000 feet. On clear nights, the skies are black, and the stars are amazing. We were nestled in a valley between mountain ranges. Rusty’s has a bunch of animals they take care of including a pair of black swans, porcupines, goats and lots of birds.

This place is in the middle of nowhere (which was great). We enjoyed Sky Islands Grill & Grocery. This was our go to place for dinner. We enjoyed their chili, pizza, soup and baked goods.

We hiked the South Fork Trail #243 which is a 4.1 mile out and back hike in the mountains. Beautiful hike with lots of birds for Pam to identify.

Pam visited the Chiricahua Desert Museum where they had lots of snakes and desert gardens.

Austin, Texas

After Florida, we traveled to Austin, Texas for 5 days and met up with Terry and Kirk. We stayed at the Austin Lone Star RV Resort. The resort was quite nice, but it is very hectic with traffic and tons of people.

We walked to the Fast Friends Brewery the first night. Had Dinner at Cooper’s Old-time BBQ in downtown Austin, which was great.

We walked the “Trail of Lights” and really enjoyed ourselves. Overall, a really nice time in Austin.

Florida Pan Handle

In late November, we spent 3 weeks in the pan handle of Florida. We spent the first 2 weeks at Coastline RV Resort in Eastpoint Florida. One of the best run and maintained RV Resorts we have ever been to. They have East and West Parks which are sperated by another property. We played pickleball almost everyday and enjoyed the fitness room. Their showers are outstanding and the people were just great. We stayed in site 26.

The next week, we spend on the ocean at Camping on the Gulf in Miramar Beach, Florida. They have RV sites on the beach; we stayed in the second row. Unfortunately, the weather was not great and we were only able to take a few walks on the pristine white sand beach. The sites by the ocean are very tight but we had good neighbors.

We are now in Austin, Texas for a week before starting to make our way to Arizonia for Christmas; we will be there for 3 months.

Alabama

In early November, we spent 9 days at the Rainbow Plantation Escapees Park in Sundale, Alabama. A simple, low-cost park with not a lot of amenities. We played golf at Gulf Links Golf Course and One Club Gulf Shores but pretty much just relaxed.

We drove up to Mobile, to visit Battleship Memorial Park where the battleship USS Alabama is on display. What an amazing ship and a really good self-guided tour. It is amazing to think of the life sailors lived on this ship in WWII. We also toured the USS Drum a World War II Gato-class submarine.
