I left home Jan 13th heading to sunny Florida hoping for warm weather. The ride south was uneventful but cold, having my in camper heater running all night to keep from freezing. I still had anti freeze in the water system of my camper so that was not a concern, just staying warm running to the bathroom.
I stayed 2 weeks at Thousand Trails in Clermont with my camping girlies where we had fun catching up from last summer and going to the winery for music and wine on the lawn, twice, taking in a musical, visiting Bok Tower, enjoying a movie, playing bingo, going out to dinner and lunch, watching a launch, and just visiting with the other campers.
Watson enjoyed seeing his furry friends again and didn't forget how to insite a riot with Alfie and Lynes then run under the picnic table and watch. He had some neighborhood dogs come into his pen and play, the others he barked at.
Thursday Feb 1st I left TT and stayed one night at Wekiwa Springs State Park. I had never been there before and really enjoyed exploring
and seeing what the park had to offer. It is a first class spring with 42 million gallons of water flowing from the spring and runs 15 miles to the St John's River. The water temperature is a constant 72 degrees. The spring looked so inviting I just had to take a dip. The water is crystle clear and so I was able to see the fish nibbling on my legs while floating under the canapy of huge live oaks. What a delightful time.
The kayak trip down the "run" will have to wait for another stay.
Today it was off to Gamble Rogers State Park in Flagler Beach. The wind picked up as I got closer and by the time I got here there were huge waves on the ocean and the temperature had fallen to 60 degrees. Yes, I know, only 60 degrees!! It's a far cry from the temps up north but it is chilly for FL. It's supposed to be 80 by Sunday, can't wait to sit on the beach. Watson hasn't gotten his beach walk yet. The gate at the end of the road is closed because a storm took out the steps
to the beach access so I have to take him a mile or so down the beach for access. I promised to go tomorrow morning. Watson's yard is all set up and he can go outside when he wants so maybe that takes the sting out of no beach yet. My campsite is on the beach side of A1A and I can see the ocean from my front window, and I'll be here 2 weeks!
I saw a couple from Canada that I had met last year and hope they have satalite tv so I can see the super bowl with them.
Tomorrow is the farmers market in Flagler, always a hoot, and beach walking.
