From West Memphis to Jacksonville…#BigRoadTrip2016 Days Three and Four [Driving Days]

Three Down, Over Thirty To Go

Day Three of #BigRoadTrip2016 started off in Arkansas – at the Tom Sawyer RV Park in West Memphis, AR.

This is a great park with very reasonable rates located right on the river in between West Memphis and Memphis.  There’s a treehouse on the property, and you get to watch all of the riverine tugboat/barge activity…very cool stuff.  They definitely look different from the ocean-going tugs I’m familiar with…but you can still feel just how powerful they are as they churn upstream.

Alabama, Here We Come

We set off pretty much due South as we headed for the Florida Gulf Coast.  We potentially had a friend from Gulf Shores meeting up with us near the Florida/Alabama line so off we went…

Arrival in Alabama…oops, Florida

We checked into a very nice RV Park on Perdido Key in Pensacola Beach, FL. We arrived late and left early, and it really felt like an on-season not an off-season rate (we’re 73 feet from the beach here in Myrtle, paying less for two nights than we paid for one there). So, I’m not going to mention those folks much…lol

Day 4 – I did get some pictures

But really, the road was pretty boring.  It’s the 10 Freeway, and of course it doesn’t do much other than go straight and turn a degree or two every half hour or so.

We’re here!

By this point, we were certainly ready to relax for a few hours, and my parents’ beautiful house in Jacksonville did not disappoint…:)
