After returning from the Cooper Family Reunion at Dale Hollow Lake we completed our visit to Navarre. We leave you with a photo from the beautiful beach on a portion of the Gulf Islands National Seashore, specifically Opal Beach on Santa Rosa Island just east of Pensacola Beach.
As we have for the past 13 years (or is it 14 years?) our family has come together for a weekend at the Eagle Cove Resort on Dale Hollow Lake in Tennessee. The lake is split between Kentucky and Tennessee.
Navarre is located in the Florida panhandle, on the Gulf Coast, a little east of Pensacola and a little west of Ft. Walton Beach. Navarre Beach is located on a barrier island which is about 1 mile offshore. We are parked at the Emerald Beach RV Park.
We booked this spot a while ago to ensure that we had a place for Thanksgiving and to give us an anchor location from where we could drive our car to the annual Cooper family event at Dale Hollow Lake in Tennessee. Our research turned out well this time. This park has an almost perfect combination of facilities, amenities and services that suits our needs very well. Continue reading →
For our drive from Brunswick, GA, to Navarre, FL, Florida’s state capital of Tallahassee provided a convenient halfway point. We stopped off at Big Oak RV Park just off Interstate 10 on the north side of Tallahassee.
As we previously mentioned, our original plan was to visit Savannah, GA, in early October. But then Hurricane Matthew came along and we had to re-route, heading south along the Gulf Coast of Florida as far as the Florida Keys, then north along the Atlantic Coast. Weeks ago, we had already booked a spot for an extended stay beginning in mid-November in Navarre, FL, on the Gulf Coast of the Florida panhandle between Pensacola and Ft. Walton Beach. Bottom line, in order to get back to Savannah, we stopped off in Brunswick, GA. This would save us 150 driving miles to get to Navarre.
