Trip #2 Thanksgiving Break

We have vacation this week and we will be going to 3 different campgrounds. I know I enjoy seeing everyone's photos so I though I'd post mine as we go along.
We are still in the learning curve and will be adjusting things for each trip. Hopefully, by the third campground this week we will have our act together.

Things I have learned from trip #2:
1)Try not to arrive at the campground when it is dark. We still are learning how to back it in.
2) Pushing the camper into place does not always work when the ground is sand.

These are photos from this weekend at Pinellas County, Florida, Park & Conservation Resources - Fort De Soto Park

kayaking

You can launch kayaks from the beach at the campground. We went to the numbered trail which was just down the street closer to the fort. You can rent there too if you don't bring your own.

Water view

Many of the sites are waterfront. We also visited friends in the dog area of the campground and it was quieter than I expected.

Nice campsite photos. Arriving after dark has it challenges for sure.

Fort De Soto is so nice! Its a great place to go for pet lovers as it has its own doggy beach. Me and the wife just love it. Great pictures.......looks like you had a lot of fun.

We are on trip number two on our vacation. Backing in was in the day time and much easier. We are at Yellow Jacket RV Resort for three nights. Lessons learned on this trip:
1) The propane cover can come off your camper when driving on the highway.
2) The tent can be completely put on inside out.

This is my new try for storage. The purple organizer is for our electronics. Found it at Big Lots for under $10. The storage bins hold the dry food and breads. These were from Target.
