Had my early morning walk on the beach at St. Joe's, and around the campground and ajoining trails......never get tired of that with my morning coffee!

It's pouring now, supposed to clear by mid afternoon, so, I am just going to upload pics of the dunes, beach, and pelicans, etc at the marina , that I took yesterday. In the marina pic, a guy was cleaning fish, and feeding the birds.

Leaving tommorrow morning, headed east to Ochlockonee State Park.

I don't know if this interests you lotsip, but Gary and I like lighthouses, so when we stayed at Ochlockonee River State Park we climbed two:

Crooked River Lighthouse (Carrabelle, FL on the north side of the highway)

Crooked River Lighthouse, Florida at Lighthousefriends.com

Cape St. George (St. George Island)

Cape St. George Lighthouse, Florida at Lighthousefriends.com

If you are interested in climbing either, scroll to the bottom of each link's page for their phone number to call ahead for hours and current info.

Deb
ps I'm sure you are aware of the huge snow storm approaching the east coast and Cape Cod area. (think: "the perfect storm" scenario)
It's a good time for you to be in FL, whew buddy!

You are welcome. I hope it stops raining soon, I don't think they let you go up if it is (because of liability if steps become too slippery). The Crooked River lighthouse is unique. We'd never gone up a "skeletal" light before, (only the brick type) so it was a first of it's kind for us. I've climbed or been in 9 of Florida's lighthouses. (Boca Grande Lighthouse is one you go in, not climb up).

In case you are interested, in Tallahassee there is a really good casual local seafood place named Warf Express. You go in, order at the bar (from a menu laying on the bar) then take a seat. The hush puppies are wonderful!! But, of course, we live waaaay inland and Long John Silver or Red Lobster are the closest to fresh seafood that it gets for us, so what do I know?

Poor Sis...Eh well, I'm sure she and the friends are old hands it and know enough to hunker down and sit tight if the roads get too bad.

hi everyone,

sorry i haven't posted lately, no internet at Oclockonee, which was lovely btw......spent two days there, lovely drive on rte 98 too......had two amazing seafood dinners at a little family restaurant in Sopchoppy......then two days at Manatee Springs state park, very lovely boardwalk, and actually saw a manatee.....!!!....thousands of huge black vultures nesting in the trees at the mouth of the spings.

just arrived in Homosassa today, carefree rv resort, seems nice, clean, cheap, plus cable tv and internet, albeit dialup-like speed, lol........so, no pics til i get better speed.

gonna check out the springs here tomorrow and old Homosassa village.

Nice to hear from you. I knew you'd be "off the grid" and i-net while at Oclockonee. Glad you had a good time and meals while there.

Enjoy Homosassa and the manatees. We stayed in the Clearwater area (in a motel) several years ago. Driving along the gulf is slow going, but there are nice places to pull off and watch the sunset. We weren't pulling a trailer at the time. I just meant if you were out for a drive it's nice.

Are you going into Clearwater? Be careful on I-4. That length of road was at one time ranked the most dangerous interstate. It's just super busy.

The bridge over Tampa bay (from St. Pete going south) is a beauty.

Keep in touch and
Deb

Haven't seen the state wildlife park in Homosassa yet, looks like more rain today..maybe tomorrow...rained yesterday, went to the tampa indian casino, lol. Might check out old Homosassa village today, and get a spare RV key made. Also want to do the Florida state fair in Tampa, next to the casino, it looks huge !
