Christmas at MacDill

The tree stands guard at the bayshore gate and is lite every night. You can see downtown Tampa in the background
Many of the campers at Raccoon Creek Campground have some sort of display at their campsite but this guy really gets into the spirit of Christmas. This one is in the annex about six sites up the road from our location.

Xmas Display & Wake Up System

This photo displays under the yellow V the sound system that wakes us up, tells us when it's noon time and tells us when to go to bed. 6:24 or thereabouts we hear Reveille and some call to colors then somewhere that approximates 4:24 we hear the National Anthem. Somewhere around 10PM we hear taps ( if you're asleep you're now awake ) and that's it for the day.
One of our fellow campers had been working on this rather large and growing Christmas display ( lights and all ) until a power box near his site lit the adjacent palm tree on fire and about 10 sites - including this one - went dark. No telling when they'll be fixed but there was lots of scrambling to relocate into sites that had power. And that's an episode in the campers diary. We wern't in a "blacked" site.

The sun is out, its Friday and a GREAT day for a little friendly competition
This beach is located at MacDill AFB Marina area, which is also the location of the FamCamp. Our RV is located just a 10 minute bike ride from the beach.
Today there was a lot of excitement with cardboard box constructed boats racing for the Base Honors!
This is one of the few boats that made it across the finish line. Most of the boats sank.Posted by Picasa
