"What are your plans?" This is a question we've been asked by everyone we meet. "Where are you going?" "What places are on your list?"
With the exception of our appointment at Red Bay for the coach mods, we really didn't have a plan. Still don't.
We left Okatibbee yesterday, not because we had a place to be, but because it looked like the only rain-free day this week. No sense traveling in the rain if you don't have to! About 3 hours later, we pulled into another of Mississippi's beautiful state parks, Flint Creek Water Park in Wiggins. I could get used to this :)
Our site at Flint Creek:
Wiggins is a little town about 35 miles north of Gulfport. It's close enough to easily drive to the coast for the day. Flint Creek is right on the water, quiet and beautiful. We'll stay here a few days until we're ready to head to the next place.
Once we set up, we took advantage of the sun and 73° temps and went for a walk through the campground snapping pictures along the way.
We met some of neighbors. One couple lives right on the gulf coast but come up here frequently to get away. They were heading home to wait out the nasty weather coming in before taking off again to tour as many state parks as they could in Mississippi. Another couple, Bob and Mary, told us they've been coming here for 10 years every winter. They are from the small Wisconsin town of Medford, not far from where I grew up! Small world. Ten years ago, they headed to Florida for the winter, got lost, ended up here and fell in love. They've been coming back ever since :)
The conversations with both couples included "Where are you going from here?" We have a pretty good idea of our next stop, maybe, but after that, who knows?
How about you? Do you have a plan? Or do you just wing it? Is it necessary to have a plan?
