Lutz, Florida (high 89, low 73)
I was doing a little research on Kissimmee Prairie State Park. We hope to go there this week-end and stay…. until we feel like leaving. There are no sewer hook-ups, so that will help to determine our length of stay.
Anyway, I came across some people online, who had visited all 160 Florida State parks, including Kissimmee Prairie. They said the park is so remote they didn’t understand why they would even put a park there and the only people that would camp there are people in the witness protection program! I thought that was kind of funny. I guess they weren’t real fond of this particular park.
Then I started to wonder if we could have phone service, so I called the ranger to see if we could get a Verizon signal there. Being in a remote area is fine….but not so remote we won’t get a phone signal. She said they previously had work campers there that had Verizon and it worked for them. We’ll see.
Of course, we may have to go to plan B, because there is another tropical system forming south of Florida. It’s supposed to bring rain to the south of us tomorrow. We’ll have to wait and see what happens after that. We can go north, south, east or west. No sense going where there is going to be bad weather….if we can help it. For now, we want to head over to the Atlantic Beaches after the Prairie. Mom is aware we’re leaving and is okay with it! We plan to leave either Saturday or Sunday. Yea!
The following picture shows our Florida Sand Crane family during the rain the other day. The poor guys were soaked!

Thanks for the concern about my cat bite. My hand was sore yesterday, and a little swollen, but not red. I kept a close watch on it and even put some antibiotic ointment on it last night and wrapped it in gauze. You can barely see the teeth marks now and Baxter has forgiven me for hurting him.
