The next day we got to Emerald Beach RV Park around 3pm. They had our reservation and gave us a map of the park and we found our site at the far end of the park.
The sites are level with full hook ups, WiFi and cable TV. There was only one camper between us and the beach area.
As soon as we got set up we went down on the beach to enjoy the view. I was so happy that we were able to reserve this site at this RV park. Even though it is a little expensive compared to other types of parks or campgrounds it was well worth it for our trip.
Once the sun began to set we decided to get some dinner at a little restaurant across the street from the park. This is the view we had that first evening.
Glenda and I love the beach so our first full day in Florida we started there in front of the RV park.
Since we had our bikes with us we talked to the staff in the office about where would be a good place to do some riding. They told us that by going over the causeway to Navarre Beach and the Gulf Island National Seashore we would find a great bike path. So we loaded up the bikes and headed over the causeway and sure enough we found a great place to ride. This is something we did every day were in Florida.
This protected area has pristine natural habitat for birds and other wildlife where no structures can be built to obscure this great beauty.
Once you are in the Gulf Island National Seashore the bike path becomes a bike lane along side the road from Navarre Beach to Pensacola Beach. The glow you can see in the distance is either the sand blowing in the air or the suns reflection from the pure white sand. I haven't figured that out yet. Very unique though.
One of the last evenings we were in Florida we took a walk along the beach and enjoyed the cool breeze and pounding surf.
The waves crashing onto the shore is quite loud and looks very powerful.
We had so much fun and look forward to returning to this area in the future. We also spent some time on the Blackwater River doing some kayaking which I will post in the next couple of days with some photos. This is Part 1.
