Suwannee how I love ya, how I love ya, my dear old Suwannee. The famous Suwannee River
I left Louisiana on January 3rd to go to Alabama because there is a park that I wanted to check out for future reference if I want to stay long-term somewhere on the Gulf Coast. The park where I stayed (not the one I was interested in) was fine although quite deserted because it was just after Christmas and it was too cold for most weekend campers to get out. I stayed a week and left there for Live Oak, Florida and to the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park. I don’t know how many folks realize that the song “Suwannee how I love ya, how I love ya…….” Actually refers to the Suwannee River. This park is on the Suwannee River and is a lovely place. It is a venue for a lot of great outdoor concerts; but unfortunately not while I was there. The temperature dipped into the teens for a couple of nights during my week’s stay and I couldn’t wait to head south. My next stop was to be Wauchula, Florida. I started to strip my layers of clothing at the first Rest Stop. This is more to my liking; low temperatures in the 50’s (+ or
Like I said it was pretty cold while I was there...this fountain in this statue has frozen in motion.
- 12°C for those who have never lived in Fahrenheit or have forgotten!)
My next stop was Naples, Florida. It had been one of the places on our itinerary the first year after retirement when Wally got sick. Of course, we didn’t make it. Naples is very nice, very pretty. Unfortunately, they don’t allow dogs on their beaches or in their parks. Although there were a lot of dogs in the resort, I didn’t see many while I was driving around at all.
On to the Keys. I have reservations in Key Largo and am really looking forward to getting there.
