The Gulf Coast

Day 26: Wednesday, August 11, 2010
The Gulf Coast

Morning in beautiful Biloxi found us packing up and trying to get out of the way of the impending tropical storm. As Dad readied the RV, Drew got in a quick visit to the playground.

Lucky for us we still had the beautiful Gulf Coast drive ahead of us - and plenty of fun stops along the way.

First, we visited the famous Felix's Fish Camp Restaurant for a phenomenal lunch- maybe the best we've had on this trip. Andrew loved the endless crackers and house macaroni and cheese.

Another well-known stop, the USS Alabama, was next door. It's a fabulous adventure in and of itself - but especially for one-year-old and twenty-nine-year-old boys.
Drew loved the ship and the airplanes, as well as the gift shop... full of ships and airplanes (and hats).

Nightfall brought us to Santa Rosa Beach, FL and Topsail Hill Preserve State Park. As far as campgrounds go, this place is tops. Beautifully maintained, lots of amenities, a fabulous beach location, and a working fountain on our campsite lawn.

Whoomp, there it is.

Nice campgrounds inspire us to get our grill on. Grill Master Mark went to town on these chops and some "Dada Pasta."
This ain't your grandpappy's camper, folks...

Bellies full, we sat back with our Chianti Classico to plan the last leg of our trip. It will be hard to say goodbye to Central Time tomorrow, but Naples calls...
