After we were done at the Florida RV SuperShow and done visiting Walt Disney World, it was time to begin our trek north and west, out of Florida.  Today, we traveled 250 miles north to Tallahassee, the state capital of Florida.

We’re staying at a familiar campground, Tallahassee RV Park, conveniently located 1 mile off I-10.  We’re setup in site 41 for two nights.  We have a long pull-through site with full-hookups and enough satellite signal through the trees to get a few key stations.

During our travel here, I’d noticed on Facebook that our good friends Kevin and Nelly Wolbeck were also heading towards north Florida.  I posted a dinner invitation and they took us up on it!  I made roasted vegetables and spaghetti with meatballs.  Good meal and great company!  We hope to catch up with the Wolbecks in New Orleans, LA in a few days.



2016 – Walt Disney World – Day 3

Today, we drove over to Disney Springs (formerly Downtown Disney), a dining-retail-entertainment district inspired by Florida’s waterfront towns and based around ‘freshwater springs’.

We had lunch in Downtown Disney at The Boathouse Restaurant.  I had the Cedar Planked Salmon and Nancy had the Crab Cake.  We split a Wedge Salad.  Both meals were fabulous if not a bit pricey.

We had coffee and ice cream at Ghirardeli and walked around Disney Springs quite a bit before heading back home.

Later in the evening, our friends and neighbors from The Gardens in Crossville, TN, Joe and Cathy Moore met us at our RV and we went to the Hoopty Doo Review Dinner and Show at Pioneer Hall, here in Fort Wilderness.  Fun times!

Here’s a couple pictures taken at Disney Springs and at Pioneer Hall:
