Sunday, April 11, 2010 - Full Day at Topsail in Destin
We awoke to another beautiful day, with the sun coming into Mona's big picture window. The park was brimming with people, already up and walking their pets and kids. Mid-morning prompted a drive to try our luck finding bicycles and a bike rack to fit into Blackie's new receiver hitch, just installed while she was at Columbia Campers. We visited four stores, Wal-Mart, K-Mart and Target, but didn't find bikes to suit us. We returned in mid-afternoon and stopped by the park office to see if there might be a chance of staying on in our existing spot for a few more nights. That won't be possible, however, there are other spots inside the park but none we like well enough to cause us to stay. Back at the camp, we finished watching the Master's Tournament and saw Phil Mickelson win. Mosquitoes are plentiful in the campground so we were unable to eat supper or watch nighttime tv outside. Still unsure of tomorrow's destination, we'll decide that tomorrow, but for now, we took the very long walk down the paved pathway to the beach.
It was a nice walk and we arrived in time to see a beautiful red/orange sunset. We walked quickly back to the campsite to get in before the night and the mosquitoes took over.
