We finally made it to one of our favorite campgrounds, St. Joseph Peninsula State Park in Florida right near Port St. Joe. We arrived on Friday the 20th and will be here until Jan. 2, our Christmas present to each other. We are in a great site #13 (I always keep track of that for future reference!). It is very private and has a wonderful view of an estuary that has lots of egrets and some sort of very small duck like bird, along with herons and kingfishers.
The weather up until Monday has been pretty warm but quite windy. Kayaking has been out of the question because of that. Pretty good whitecaps on the bay where we would be going. We have been able to walk the beach in shorts and bare feet. The water was not nearly as cool as I thought it would be. I wouldn't want to swim in it, but it's not bone chillin'! Gus saw the ocean for the first time on Saturday and she was so scared of it all. She continually acts like she is the big (little) tough dog, but when push comes to shove, she is a bit of a chicken. Every time a wave came to her she would run in the other direction. We got a pretty funny video of it. Yoda, the old seasoned wise one, was pretty excited to see the ocean once again.

We opened a few presents last night and still have some to do.
Tom and I hope everyone has had a great holiday and we miss all you very much.
