This is how we roll! 🚌

An early Christmas present. If you look close the RV is a Palazzo. If not the same model as ours, it's close.

Sometimes "blogger" gets in a mood. It doesn't want to display things properly, won't let me even post the short little video clips (under 20 secs.) it allows, stuff like that. It does allow you to use you tube videos, but I'm  not going there. It might work better on the computer than on my phone, but using my phone is so much easier and familiar (might have to give the computer a try though). The best thing about blogger though is it's FREE so I can't complain too much.

Road trip Monday. We went a half hour west to DeFuniak Springs to run some errands. Then probably another half hour to Crestview, our "home." 

We are residents of Crestwood, FL. Our "residence" is My RV Mail Inc/Good Sam Mail Service. I have no idea how many clients they have, but a lot. They will forward our mail, scan it, shred it, or hold it for us. Same with packages. We do most of our stuff on-line, bills, correspondence, just about everything. To avoid paying for shipping twice we have packages shipped to where we are staying or an Amazon locker. Today we decided to stop in and pick up the few pieces of mail that had accumulated.

A familiar number if you've sent us mail. 

Hub City Smokehouse and Grill in Crestview for lunch.

We returned back through DeFuniak Springs, picked up my meds at Walgreens, and headed to the Circle Drive Historic District in search of a bakery and a piece of chocolate cake. Failed on the latter but we checked out the historic area. The Walton Defuniak library, located on Circle Drive, is the oldest continuously operated library in Florida. 

What does Circle Drive encircle? It and a sidewalk go around the almost perfectly round 40 acre spring-fed Lake DeFuniak. It is one of only two naturally round lakes in the world. Legend says it was created by a meteor, but more likely it is a sink hole lake.

Behind the library there is swimming in Lake DeFuniak during the summer months. A sign next to the library tells that the lake was closed to swimming in 1964 to evade desegregation, although officially they claimed it was closed due to pollution. Hard to believe that was during my lifetime. Pat said that worse was that they didn't reopen it for swimming until 2021!

The domestic Muscovy ducks were pretty.

You can't even tell where Lake Defuniak meets the sky. 

Located between DeFuniak Springs and Bonifay. We drove into the park but didn't stop to search for the fountain of youth, but I probably need to do that!
