Ochopee, Florida (high 82, low 75)
Our “planned”departure time yesterday of 8:00 am ended up actually being 10:40. We knew we really wouldn’t leave at 8am, but it was a nice thought.
We went straight down I75 through Alligator Alley, then south on Highway 29 and then onto 41 and into Midway campground. We chose site 18 because the last time we were there we got a little big of Verizon signal. This time, we got a little less, but I could make a call and check emails.
This morning we relaxed a while and got on the road at 10:25 am! We just never can seem to leave very early. It’s okay though, we have no reason to rush and we only have to go 158 miles today. It’s a bit cloudy and we’re battling some wind. Fuel mileage probably won’t be good today.
We were amazed at the lack of birds in the Everglades. In December when we were here there were thousands of Anhinga and Egrets. This trip we say maybe a dozen.
Still lots of gators though.
We’re looking forward to getting into the Keys and that beautiful drive on the Overseas Highway.
