As we continue our journey south in Florida we find ourselves in Ormond Beach, Florida at the “old Florida” style State Park, Tomoka State Park.
We originally schedule our 5 days at Tomoka State Park so we could be close to our aunt and uncle, who were scheduled to stay in Ormond Beach during that time. As we get older we realize the importance of family and making sure we do our part to visit as often as we can. Steve and Marion always go out of their way to both visit with us and make us feel welcome no matter where they are. But as circumstances would happen, they had to leave early, before we arrived, to take care of a family matter back in Miami. So, Lynn and I found ourselves at the lovely park and beautiful area with no plans and no set agenda.
And… it rained… no poured… 3 of the days we were here. One of the days it was supposed to rain all day so we took off to Ormond Beach to take in a movie and find a place to eat seafood. Both choices were perfect. It’s a great thing to do when it’s rainy or really cold… get out of the van and lean back and watch a big screen and then let someone else cook for you and clean up.
As we rode bikes when the sun was out we found out so much about this historic area and park. We met up with Scott Cornelius a.k.a. Captain Corn of the Tomoka Outpost and learned how he’s always dreamed of owning the store and how he made that dream come true. He and his wife are awesome folks and you need to look them up if you’re in the area.
Many of you who follow us on YouTube have been asking for more shots of normal day to day life inside the van… the cooking, cleaning, etc. So in this video Lynn prepares two meals for you to see and they were delicious meals too.
And what video from us would be complete without a hike or a beautiful sunset. This one has both. All in all we did not get to do the visiting and reminiscing with family we had planned but as we always do we made the best of it.
Thanks for being connected to us as we travel around North America in our Winnebago Travato 59K camper van.
