Wesley Chapel, Florida (high 81, low 59)
Tomorrow we leave on our trek south to the Keys. We have reservations for one night at Jonathan Dickinson State Park, which is about half way there. We’re trying a new route this time, trying to avoid the horrible construction on highway 41.
We’ve been getting some last minute shopping done. Most everything we need we can buy in the Keys, but there are a few important things we can’t get there. Like our brand of kitty food.
We’ve also been taking care of some errands and chores that we should have done the past month of so since we’ve been here. We managed to procrastinate until we couldn’t procrastinate anymore. Will we ever learn? It’s not likely.
I have been feeling a bit run down the past few days and sort of achy all over. At first I attributed it to being tired,and wondered if the time change was the cause. Resting hasn’t helped, so I guess I have a little bug or something. I guess it’s time to start doctoring myself with some Echinacea and cranberry pills. We went to the gym yesterday, hoping it would make me feel better. It didn’t, so I guess I won’t go today. On top of the over all achy feeling, my shoulder has started bothering me again. It had begun to feel better but now it’s hurting again. It better not screw up my kayaking.
By the way, Mr. Baxter hates the time change. He feels his breakfast has been delayed unnecessarily.
I’ve been doing some planning for summer travels. Hopefully, Mom will be well enough for us to get out of Florida for a while.
I’ve read a few blogs lately from people who are staying at Corp of Engineer campgrounds. I get so frustrated trying to navigate their websites and find campgrounds, that I rarely even consider them. Then I remembered that Judy had mentioned a book that she used for finding COE parks.
Sometimes it’s nice to have an actual book to scroll through, verses internet. I think I’ll go ahead and order it from Amazon as soon as we get to the Keys, and have an address to send it to. We like the state park experience, but prefer cheaper prices, so with the 50% discount for seniors, we may try to visit more COE parks.
Anybody have any COE parks in the south east that you love and can recommend?
