Made It to the Trail

Yesterday Harry and I had a nice relaxing day. 18119556_10213492796541075_1775119602097031072_nWe decided to drive over to Green Cove Springs to pick up our mail. We didn’t have tons, but as long as we’re right here might as well save the postage. Since we had gotten up a little late, by the time we got to Green Cove Springs it was almost noon, so I checked my phone for local restaurants. (Can’t even remember how we figured out stuff like that before we had smart phones!) I found a little Mexican restaurant right down the street from our mailbox, so we drove over there for lunch. Green Cove Springs has some nice public lots of parking, so it makes it pretty convenient.




The food was really good! Two thumbs up for La Casita in Green Cove Springs!



Then we drove on to the outlets in St. Augustine. It was about a 25 minute drive from Green Cove Springs. We each had a couple things on our list that we wanted, and for the most part it was a pretty successful shopping foray. No pictures though.

By the time we 18118681_10213503717894102_3369136968286389061_ngot over there it was almost 11, so it was pretty warm already, but luckily we were walking today and not running. I don’t remember if I mentioned it here or not, but about a month ago, I fell on the concrete with my bike and banged my knee, and I haven’t been running since. My knee is feeling back to normal, but now it’s too hot, so we are going to try to get back to some running when we get up to Ohio. Today we had a nice brisk walk – 5.25 miles!


We also went over to the office today and extended our stay here by one day. I’ve been watching the weather as I always do when we are in traveling mode, and Monday was looking like it could be stormy in the Charlotte area. So we are going to wait until Tuesday to move on when it is supposed to be beautiful. That sounds much nicer!

  1. Thanks Jessica for your nice comment on my blog. I've recently found out I do have a few followers so I'm a little more motivated to post now(smile. We just spent 2 nights at Pecan Park on our way back to NC this spring and thought it was a nice RV park especially since the road had been recently paved. Safe travels!
