Planes (no Trains) and Automobile

This should be classified :-)
Does this look to you I stepped out of "Navy One"
at the White House lawn after a weekend at Camp David?

A week flew by and I hadn’t posted at all.  Sorry guys, but trips to the mall, various grocery stores and walks around the campground didn’t seem worth writing about, it would tire you out. While the weather had been a bit on the cooler side this past week here close to the Gulf Shores, the bright sunshine during the day makes up for the chilling nights. Today was another beautiful day and we felt like visiting the National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, FL. More than 150 planes are displayed including the Apollo space exhibit and four of the former Blue Angel A-4 Skyhawks can be viewed on the floor and suspended from the ceiling of the hangar. All in all there is lots to see including an IMAX theater for which we didn’t have time today but might return to another time.

My hero!

On sunny days we see and hear above our RV park and surrounding area the Blue Angels in the sky training on turboprops and not with the blue jets. 

Before we drove out to the museum we stopped at a Chrysler dealer located in Foley, which is on the way to Pensacola, to make an appointment for an oil change for our truck.  They were not busy and took us in immediately saving us a trip.  While the truck was in the bay I spotted this neat looking jeep in the parking lot and thought it looked interesting enough to include in my blog.

  1. Glad to read that you are enjoying your time in Florida.
    One reason most people write is as a journal, log or diary of what they did on particular days so they can always go back and reference it.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.
