I would have stayed in Melbourne much longer, but it’s that Snowbird infestation that snaps up all the good campgrounds. The closest we could stay was here at space coast rv in Rockledge and it is not our style at all, with narrow alleys between crammed-in sites. The cost is waayy more than it’s worth, and the wi-fi is extra! We are in this particular area mostly because my Aunt Shirley lives here, very close to her daughter-caregiver, my beautiful cousin, Kim.
We spent Thursday afternoon with Aunt Shirley, took her to the grocery store, and enjoyed a little chicken together. Kim came by and we followed her home and the evening flew by, jabbering and yacking and doing a Whole Lot of Laughing! I love that girl! And her daughter, Shianne, too! And her son, Jon-Jon! We had a blast…
The next morning, we were heading down to the beach and as soon as we started the car we noticed it was running really bumpy, missing a beat kind-of. We turned around, went to an Autozone near our camp and did a diagnostic scan: #3 cylinder mis-fire. Back at the trailer, Casey got under the hood and found a hose was dripping antifreeze right on that spark plug. He walked over to the Lowe’s right behind us and bought a hose clamp, put it on and tightened everything. We proceeded to take a Test Drive down to Melbourne Beach…
The hose clamp stopped the leaking, but the mis-fire continues and will until we can get back home… We drove by Aunt Shirley’s and gave her (and her dog, Leo) another hug. Back at the trailer, we started to ready for leaving.
We toured a campground that is just what we are looking for — perfect location, lots of trees, and space between the sites. Our current plan is make Melbourne our March home in 2019, maybe forever. I really like it here!!
We’re leaving about 10:30, driving the 1.5hours to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campground, where we’ll be staying for a week. The Jose’ family will be arriving Sunday morning and we’ll be there to greet them and kick off another Great Disney Adventure.
