Talking Beyond Excited - Planning Florida Trip!

We're about to celebrate our first year of camping trailer style (vs tent/popup) and so far we've only camped in Texas no more than 300 miles away from home and have absolutely LOVED it.

Now we're getting braver and are planning our first out-of-state trip to Florida - AHHHH! So excited I can hardly contain my anticipation!

First we're going to Wekiwa State Park and stay for about a week and we will take a day or two to visit Daytona where my husband has already booked a Petty Driving Experience, LOL! That's not for me, but hey, opposites attract!

Then we're going to John Pennekamp State Park where we'll stay another week to do more snorkeling, have a fish charter or two and plan a visit to the Dry Tortugas by plane!!! AHHHH!!!!!
Goodness, time goes by fast enough, but I can't wait until we get that trip started. Kinda hard to think about the other two trips we have planned in between, LOL!

Very cool. We'll be back from Florida by that point. We decided to leave the heat and humidity of summer in Maryland for MEGA HEAT AND HUMIDITY of summer in Florida.

Sounds like a wonderful adventure. I have been to Wekiwa in the winter to see the Manatees that come in for the warm water. Never been to Pennekamp but it looks awesome! We love to snorkel so this will get added to the list for the future. Enjoy every minute!!

Thank you! How cool to see the Manatees That a big part of this trip, to be able to see all the wildlife above and below the water

LOL! Oh yes I do!

It'll probably still be sunny and 80 when we come in September, might even be 90 - just so long as there are no hurricanes
