Just before the sun came up,
we headed out the door to do our morning power walk and
were greeted by these two cuties!!
During our walk, we could hear the roosters and finally found them.
We were headed to Silver Springs State Park near Ocala, Florida.
We were meeting Sherry and David there.
Our first stop was the Florida Welcome Center where we intended to have our breakfast. As we were approaching the rest stop, a car kept passing the Van and then backing off and getting between the Van and the Tahoe. Well sure enough as we pulled off, they pulled off and followed us to our parking spot. We then realized they were really interested in our Van and we spent almost an hour talking about and showing it to them.
So a quick breakfast stop turned into an hour and half rest stop.
They wanted to know why we brought our car and the Van.
Well, our car is really our garage.
It carries the bikes, kayak, hiking gear and
whatever else we can’t fit in the van ;o))
We will be looking for a new garage when get our Motorhome.
We kinda liked this toad that pulled in next to us.
After a quick bowl of cereal,
we followed 295 around Jacksonville and
across the St Johns River.
Nancy wanted to stop at the Whole Foods Store
before turning south on Rt 13.
We took Rt 13 south to Rt 16 west
back across the St. Johns River.
Once across the river,
Well, as it turned out we were a little lost;o((
We had missed a turn onto Rt 314
which was a direct connection to the State Park.
Instead we went the long way around.
As we came around the corner to go to our site,
not only were Sherry and David there to greet us,
but Gin and Syl
(who are heading to Lazy Days to pick up their new motorhome)
were there also.
What a great surprise!!
