The last several days have been pretty quiet. We moved west to Torreya State Park for a few days. It was cold! And we had been to that park a few times before so we mostly just stayed inside, so nothing to blog about there.
Now we are at Topsail Hill Preserve State Park near Destin, Florida, on the Gulf of Mexico. We have been here a few times before too, and it’s one of our favorites. We are very comfortable here and will be here until Saturday morning when we will move a bit further west.
The Gulf of Mexico is a .75 mile walk from the campground. The park does offer a free tram, but we walked this time. And then there is a long boardwalk over the dunes before getting to the beach.
It was cool and clouds are rolling in. Could be rain on the way. There were only a few others on the beach when we were there. We walked for a while and then took the tram back to the campground. The beach goes on forever and the sand is like sugar.
