Our Big May Trip


Well it is 22nd of April and the time has come for another great trip to our favourite parking spot. Henderson Beach State Park FL. The trailer is almost ready and all we really need is some warm weather. I still need to check the lights and add some air to the tires. I have spent considerable time preparing the two gps units we take.

The trailer has been washed down inside and out, water lines flushed, some of the food and clothes are loaded. I found a break in the fresh water tank fill hose so it was replaced. I have fired up the LP gas furnace  a couple times and it works perfect.
Camping at Northgate campground

We are set up at Northgate campground near Athen Alabama. It is nice and clean with electric, water, and WIFI

Bulls next to Northgate campground

Next to Northgate Campground there is a large pasture and these bulls were there this year. As you may see the fence isn't much, so it's a good thing they were happy on their side.

guitar at Topsail Hill

Someitmes, when time allows we stop at Topsail Hill State Park. It is a short drive to Henderson Beach State park. Lots of good service and close to the gulf of Mexico.

Site 21 @ Henderson Beach

This is our favourite site at Henderson Beach State park. Site 21 it is sucluded and only a 5 minute walk to the beautiful beach.

relax on the beach at Henderson Beach

Life doesn't get much better than to relax on Henderson Beach. White sand, like talcum powder, lovely warm emerald green water. We can not find a better beach.

Oak Creek Campground

This is a site at Oak Creek Campground. It is in Northern Kentucky not to far from Cincinnati Ohio. Nice spot but a bit tricky to get to.

Play area Oak Creek Campground

Across from our trailer at Oak Creek was this neat children play area. A few years younger and I would have been all over it.

At the east end of Henderson Beach State Park is Henderson Park Inn. They have a live webcam that allows live views of their beach and the State park.

I won't bore you with more photo's Just know we had a great trip as usual. The sun, the waves, the beautiful beach with it's soft white sand, it is all just a great time. Even getting there is a fun drive with two GPS units to keep us entertained. The campgrounds and shopping it all adds up to a great relaxing trip after a very busy year at Windsor Castle.
