Sarasota Florida

Sarasota, FL

I was tired Sunday night and neglected to post about our afternoon so your going to get a double post for Sunday.  Exciting huh?


Look at our campsite .. it’s huge and i love having all this nice gravel!  I can’t get a picture to do it justice.  We have a beautiful gravel spot and then it’s surrounded by trees and brush to give us a great seclusion.  Our neighbors can not see us .. we can see our neighbors behind us but they can’t see us :)  Were on PR 51.  Hubby has satellite and my internet works even though it’s very slow.   Sometimes it’s so slow it will not upload photos that is why this blog post is so late. (just a few days .. snicker)
After we arrived and got settled in and visited a bit with Peter and Heidi we headed to check out the park some

It has a wonderful picnic area and being it’s a Sunday it was pretty crowded with people
So far we are very impressed with this park and are looking forward to seeing much more of it.  It was a beautiful warm day here in not so Sunny Florida today.

were on the road again

Wow it was a very late night last night.  We didn’t get to bed until after 12.30 AM!  We’ve had lots of company coming to tell us good bye.  We got the truck hooked up, the slides all but the bedroom were pulled in so that all we’d have to do in the morning is put the front jacks up and unhook our electrical cord.  We needed to get an early start to get out tanks emptied and on the road before anyone started arriving at church and blocking the dump area. 


We were on the road heading farther south by 7.23 AM.  We stopped at Paynes Prairie rest area and walked the snake walk .. it was really neat but i forgot my camera in the truck :((


We arrived at Myakka River State Park around noon and got setup in our site.  It was a bit tricky as we had to fight a satellite dish across the road from us but my hubby did a great job getting us swung in and we decided to park closer to our picnic table so we could back our truck in behind the camper.  Other wise we wouldn’t have room for it. 


Here is our wonderful site and it’s so nice to be back on full hookups and 50 Amps!  Oh how i have missed my full electric!  I got a load of laundry going and then we went to meet our friends Peter and Heidi.

It’s been a great day and we are looking forward to some great friendships reconnecting after not seeing each other in person for almost 4 years.
