After our New Orleans visit, we headed East to the Florida Panhandle. We stayed in Pensacola last winter for a week, so we thought we’d try a new destination, Destin, Florida.
We pulled into the Army Recreation Center in Destin. It is beautiful and very reasonable, and all built and run with no taxpayer dollars!
It has full hook up RV sites as well as rental apartments and cabins for military folks (Active Duty, Retired and DoD Civilians). Rental boats are available for the fishing minded patrons. For me, it has a great pool, but sadly, no hot tub. Still, no complaints from me.
It is located right next to the bay where we have enjoyed incredible sunsets.
We pulled in to our site and got all set up. Then we noticed a funny thing.
Do you see it? How about now?
It is a twin to our Journey!
The funny thing is I had seen this Journey before, in fact I had even been inside it back in Virginia a couple of years ago and met its original owner at our favorite campground, Bull Run Regional Park in Centreville, VA. The owner later traded it in to our selling dealer, Reines RV Center and bought a Phaeton. The second owner purchased it and is down here in Destin with it. He came, knocked on our door and met us, because he saw our “twin”. The best part? He is one of our many blog readers. How cool is that? :c)
We are going to stay here until Thursday, then pull out and head over towards Jacksonville, Florida. Another great military campground awaits us there that we’ve been hoping to try out.
Life is good, and the enjoying the pool here is great. :c)
