At last, the final day of March, a month that seems to have lasted far too long. Perhaps it's because I pointed south again from the peacefulness of tent life and the beauty of Cedar Key. Civilization is oh-so-highly overrated.
That said, I did get to help a friend post-surgery, and catch up on life logistics, before rolling out (floating out?) of Florida for the season. Let me just add that while the humans in South Florida are enough to manage, I was sitting at a red light and saw a 4' (?) iguana walking across a busy 6-lane road. People were slamming on their brakes as it simply jaywalked on to the next neighborhood. I thought, "yes, I am living in a parallel universe".
Meanwhile, I'm glad I've become a photo bug as there was some fun to be had...
In January I had to cancel a spot on my "Camping along Memory Lane" tour as temps were dropping into the '20s! So happily, I planned my last 4 nights in Florida at Princess Place Preserve. It's been 4 years since my last visit but the back story on this lovely spot in Palm Coast can be found here!
While the town of Palm Coast is developing, how grand that they had laid the infrastructure for walking, biking, and greenspace throughout town. It was a pleasure to cycle from camp and people are still friendly and considerate! While I found the Preserve a bit busy on my Sunday arrival, it remains well cared for, and I shared the entire waterfront campground with just one neighbor. Sadly, Mother Nature robbed me of my last night, but that's a tale that takes me into Georgia.
