Day is done…

I love Florida sunsets. There is something calming about sitting watching the colors in the sky and God create some beautiful art. It is a beautiful balmy night here. Crisp and clean. You can just feel the stress flowing out of you, and you can’t help but take a few deep cleansing breathes. I was sitting on the bench thinking yeah so glad I did this.


Sweet Home Carolina (and bumps in the road)

Sweet Home Carolina (and bumps in the road)

What a beautiful blue sky. Well the plan since we got here late was to come back the next day day and hike to Johns Gap water fall. Well you know how plans are… We woke up in the morning. Mark went to empty the gray water tank and the dump pipe was cracked. Ya see we ran over a shredded piece of tire in the road on the way here. Mark walked around the Rv to see if there was any damage but did not see that. Well thank God it was not a brake line or something like that. Tomorrow there is a 70% chance of rain so I doubt we will get back there. Well another day another time maybe. What a beautiful park. Casars Head is a must see.

Farewell Florida


As we depart the tropical like land of Florida I am lamenting our time we spent here. Your warm weather, your tropical breezes, your folly of fowls, your fiesta of fish, your beautiful sunsets, your warm weather most of all I will miss relaxing by the water and the nice people at Fisherman’s Cove. Stewart and his dog Romeo, Cassie and Andy, Bill and Linda , Bob the Canadian and many others here at Fisherman’s Cove made this one of the nicest parks on the west coast. Alas we shall hopefully return to finish some unfinished things on our bucket list. I wanted to swim with the manatees and do some more snorkeling but I need contacts or a set prescription goggles. I also did not get to see the Ever Glades because I could not get a spot in the parks down that way. With more planning I hope to do that next trip. Ah yes and St Augustine was another thing on my bucket list. So Florida we part and will see you again next winter.

As we move on I look forward to our next spot. Although a short pit stop on our way back home South Carolina should has a few really nice parks I would like to see. Waterfalls and mountains here we come.

Manatee Madness

Manatee Madness

Hundreds of manatees were here this day after a “cold” Spell in the 50’s. Today was one of the first days in the 80’s. We actually just happened to go today because some riding buddies from the KOA where we left 2 days ago just showed up at Fisherman’s Cove this day. We were walking back from the dock and there was Sally and Tom on their bike riding right toward us. They said they took a wrong turn and went to turn around. It was a good day for me because I wanted to go to this refuge and they said they were going. SO we geared up and road out to this spectacular site.
