Puppy love

Driving out of the National Park we passed a little “farmers” market which we checked out. They weren’t really selling produce – more like, knitted goods and crafts plus some cookies and cakes. They were also adopting out puppies which, of course, could not go...

Coverin Ground

We’ve not done much else today but work and drive. We checked out Tallahassee for a bit, and then went to the Apalachicola National Forest for the evening, catching a sight of the sun just as it was setting over the Camel Lake. We’re enjoying the National Forests in Florida...

Toll-rific

So we’re doing a fair bit of driving today. We’re definitely on the northern route – seeing more Ontario plates in a day than we have all trip. We opted to hug the coast but stick to major roadways which means we hit a couple toll roads. Unfortunately we’ve found that...

Barefoot Beach

We said good-bye to our friend today. We intended on only staying a day but when you have such good company, good food, all in a great setting; why would you want to leave? Before leaving the Naples area we managed to see the beautiful Barefoot Beach – one of the gems in the area. Whats...

Splish-splash

So we had quite a bit of work to catch up on today but were able to do most of it at our friends house – all while being extremely well fed with lots of good company, out in the sunshine. We also jumped in the pool for a bit of a swim. It’s hard to believe it’s the first of...

Gator hunting

Today has been one of those obscure days you didn’t think would come together quite like it did. It started off really early at around 6 am. We slowly made our way towards the boat tour place where we planned on doing an air boat ride for the first time. We were obviously there early...

Real Regatta

We got a chance to see, and show our support, at a Force 5 sailboat Regatta today. The weather was just perfect. We learned that the Force 5 is the type of boat they all used for the race; it’s a small, light weight vessel which is easy to maneuver with one person. The race itself is...

Knot Happening

John Pennekamp State Park gets some credit because some of the park is actually under the water. There is a whole beautiful coral reef and other sunken items which we were excited to get to explore – it was also the reason originally why we booked a night at this park in the first...

Paradise to Parking ...

Today marked the end of two great days at Bahia Honda. We had to be off the site at 11am so we spent the morning doing a bit of van cleaning to prep us for the next leg of the jorney. The next couple months is looking to be busier (by the way of driving) than the past few months so its easier...
