We just left Florida. I am doing this blog entry while we are driving through Alabama. We both have been pleased with tethering with the iphone. The trip from Venice on Wednesday to Three Rivers State Park in northwestern Florida went well except for being hit by a flying barrel on northbound I 75 near Ocala. We suffered minor damage to both the truck and the camper, but we are very, very lucky. People need to be careful about securing objects on vehicles before driving 70 miles an hour on a freeway.
We had a lovely campsite on Lake Seminole. Except for the gator we saw swimming across the lake and the Spanish moss, it seemed like we were home in Minnesota!
We looked right across the lake at the state of Georgia and the Eastern time zone.
Paul threw some casts while I did some birding in the campground. We met a fellow camper from Inver Grove Heights. He has been in Florida since October, sleeping in a tent the entire time!!! He had interesting stories to tell.
We enjoyed the sunset and the sunrise on the lake.
And, for the first time on this trip, we also had a campfire. I am so excited to camp in the north woods!!!
We stop this afternoon this side of Memphis and will spend the weekend there. I'd better get back to being a supportive copilot. I'll talk to you soon.
