Topsail Hill Preserve State Park is our second Florida State Park. Located near Santa Rosa Beach, as well as near other popular beaches and state parks. The RV sites are spacious and well spaced. There's much to do in the park and close by. Beach access provides a remote place away from the crowds to enjoy the Gulf of Mexico. Topsail is a gem.
Jekyll, The Island
We booked a spot for 5 days in the Jekyll Island Campground, the only RV campground on the Jekyll Island. My brother from another mother, John, came over from Columbus, GA to spend some time with us. Millionaires Club (aka, Jekyll Island Club), walking paths, cycling, bicycle the beach, a belated birthday dinner with John at the Jekyll Island Club, lunch, relaxing, Live Oaks draped in Spanish Moss, salt marshes. Great spot.
South of Charleston, South Carolina, but convenient to check out Charleston, Oak Plantation Campground, while typical of many RV parks is a well-run place to stay. They are family owned and have been around for 40 years.
Olana State Historical Site
When we were in Summit, New Jersey I rode my Super Commuter (Red Ranger) over to the newly opened Trek bicycle shop in Summit located only a few blocks away from where we were staying.
While I was waiting on my bike to be serviced, I had a chance to talk to the store manager. Upon learning we traveled full-time, he told me we should check out the Hudson River Valley and mentioned checking out Olana State Historical Site overlooking the Hudson River, the home of Frederic Edwin Church, Hudson River School painter. We did.
We arrived on a Monday morning found the grounds were open, but the house and studio were closed. While we're sorry to have missed the inside of Mr. Church's home and the collection of art from all over the world, the grounds were well worth the trip.
