Fort Clinch Camping, Day 2

REMOTE POSTING – FERNANDINA BEACH, FL.: It rained all night long. The girls slept right through it, but Jennifer and myself were tossing all night lon slept right through it, but Jennifer and myself were tossing all night long. At one point the wind started whipping, but we weathered the storm.
In the morning the girls got up at their normal 6:30 time and it was still raining. Every once in a while it would slow down to a sprinkle and I was able to get some charcoal lit for our breakfast. We cooked up egg and bacon English muffins heated up in a pie iron over the hot coals.
It was still raining and the girls were getting stir crazy, so we decided to get everyone into the Sequoia and head into Jacksonville. I looked up a children’s museum with directions on the Internet using my phone. And off we went. It was a cute place. It was just a locally owned joint with several went. It was a cute place. It was just a locally owned joint with several areas like a pretend bank and post office. It had a dress up area and stage which Abby enjoyed.
We let the girls play around for a couple of hours and then we headed over to Dave & Busters. D&B is an arcade/restaurant which they have in Texas, which we haven’t been to since leaving Austin. The best way to describe it is a Chuck E Cheese for adults. The girls had fun and won several toys playin a Chuck E Cheese for adults. The girls had fun and won several toys playing all the games that gave away tickets.
Believe it or not the sun had come out in the afternoon and dried up the camp. As the sun started to set, we had a quick snack for dinner and headed over to Fort Clinch for a candle light tour of the fort. The tour was very interesting. A soldier with a thick Irish accent answered the door to the fort and led us around the various areas. He stayed in character pretending to be a corporal in the Union army who captured and completed the fort during the Civil War. As I said, it was all very interesting. It was so hot inside the various buildings and it’s amazing that people could live in the South without air conditioning. That’s why our camper has it and I don’t leave home without it. home without it.
