Bunnies, Bunnies, Bunnies

 White Springs, Florida

I love anything furry and these guys are not only furry, but very cute.

We didn’t do much today.   We were kind of tired so we just messed around. 
This is our campsite.

We brought the kayaks, but the Suwanee River is very  low right now.  I’ve never seen it so low.

This is where I was when I fell.  The ground was hard packed sand and didn’t look slippery, but that one spot was definitely a bit slippery. 
The Suwanee is a black water river and the dark water makes for some beautiful reflections.

A few fall colors also.

We found a nice little park today called Falling Creek Park.  Its along the Suwanee River and has a pretty nice waterfall when the water is a little higher.  We took a walk down to the river, not expecting to see any water “falling”.  We were surprised there was still enough water to make somewhat of a waterfall.
The river drops from a limestone ledge down about 20 feet.  It was kind of different.

I’d like to come back when the river water is not quite so low.  This is a picture from the map of what it could look like.
The picture isn’t so clear, but maybe you can see it well enough.

The last time we were at the Suwanee River, it was much higher.  I need to post some before and after pictures.
Tomorrow we hope to get over to Big Shoals State Park.  They have a nice trail along the river.  It’s a day use park, but they have a nice work camper site.  Maybe someday we will work camp there.

  2. Oh those are cute little bunnies! How are you liking the new camera? Those bunny photos look good to me.

    The Suwanee sure is low - no kayaking there this trip.

    Enjoy your stay.

  3. I've never seen a black bunny in the wild. Wow! So cute. I'm with you, I love anything furry and cute. Looks like you're in beautiful surroundings! We hit the road again tomorrow, working our way back to Oklahoma for the holidays. Have fun!

  4. So glad your wrist AND camera are ok. I feel like you are my eyes to Florida, and it's good to see the Suwanee even when it's low. I'll be prepared in the future if I get there! The park looks lovely. I think we are going to have to get a Passport America next year for sure! Someday I want to stay at Manatee State Park, it seems so uncrowded and lovely.

  6. What a lovely place, and we will be sure to visit it again next time we are down there.

    That must have been someone's tame bunny that got out. Hope he is having a fun life roaming and playing with the wild ones... instead of being stuck in a cage.

  7. The bunnies were very cooperative to allow you to take their pictures!

    Glad you are having a relaxed time away from the home place.

  9. Sounds like you are having a great time. Hope your wrist is feeling OK today, after your fall. That river looks low, just like the one we were hiking beside at the Muscatatuck County Park in North Vernon, Indiana. You could see how high it got during the high season. I would like to see this river high as well, there would have been some pretty little water falls all along the trail.

    Your two little “stinkers” will get use to the motorhome once you are full timing. They will settle down to a routine.

    The campground looks really pretty.
