May 2024 Stone Creek RV Park, Schertz, Texas

Stone Creek RV Park is a very well-kept place for that overnight stay or a vacation. Graveled sites with full hook-ups. Many of the sites have sheltered picnic tables.

Friendly staff greet you upon arrival. The office also has some camping items in stock. A Walmart is close for any other items for your stay.

There is a huge laundry facility. Rest rooms are scattered throughout the park.

A very well maintained pool and spa is for adults only. Great way to refresh after a long drive.

If you have a four-legged friend they will be happy with the two fenced-in dog parks. A an agility course is set up for your pet in each dog park. One park has smaller objects for smaller dogs and then there is one for those bigger dogs to romp and play.

Being well off the highway there is no road noise however, their is an airport close so occasionally you hear planes taking off.

We definitely recommend Stone Creek RV Park.

2022, EARLS 66 MOTEL, WINSLOW, ARIZONA

Looking for somewhere to spend the night, we came across Earl’s. It is a 1950’s motel. Very nostalgic. Interior of rooms reflect the era with the exception of the large screen TV. I really loved the touch of the handmade quilt on the bed.

It is located near a railroad track and road so if you need quiet for the night, this is not your stop. However, if you want to take a walk back to the 50’s, Earl’s s it.

Room was very clean and friendly staff.

So now I have stood on the corner of Winslow, AZ and I also slept on the corner of Winslow, AZ. For those of you who don’t know, ‘standing on the corner n Winslow, AZ, is a verse from a song, “Take It Easy” by the Eagles.

2021 The Cove, Ormond Beach, Florida

Family if very important to us. So when everyone’s schedule works out we plan a family vacation.

The view from our room was spectacular.

Lots of family time at the beach.

Always look for interesting restaurants on our vacations. Billys was a great choice. Great food, cold drinks, and lots of fun.

Always important to get that famous sunset photon every vacation.

We all had a great time at Ormond Beach. Looking forward to future destinations. If you get a chance visit The Cove.

Hawaii is rich in scenic beauty. The interesting thing about Kona is that it is mostly lava rock. As you drive along the roadside you can see where the lava flowed during the volcanic eruptions.

We always enjoy finding fabulous waterfalls.  Akaka Falls was fabulous.   There was the huge falls but while you are making your way toward it you would pass smaller falls hidden in the greenery.

Walkway to the falls.  Although a lengthy walk, the paved path made it easy.

The black sand beach is quite the tourist attraction.  The sand is much courser that regular beach sand. This is the area where if you are lucky you can see huge sea turtles. Unfortunately we did not see any.

Seahorses are very fragile so in order to hold them the biologist would carefully wind the tail around your finger.

Never thought I would try eating seaweed.  It was actually quite good but if you didn’t shake a bunch of the sea water off it can be quite salty.

Yes, I am playing with an octopus.  In order to get their attention, you put your fingers on the surface of the water and move  them to get their attention.

There are many interesting things to do in Hawaii.  This is only some  of what we saw.   We do plan on going back to Hawaii, but to another Island.  Really looking forward to that.
