|Our campsite at Falling Waters State Park, Florida|
Our first day's drive was 158 miles to Falling Waters, a Florida State park. The next drive is a bit longer at 278 miles, but Crooked River, a Georgia State park looked interesting. The last leg of this drive is only 111 miles, so we will probably have a nice afternoon to get settled at Skidaway, also a Georgia State park near Savannah. I'll let you know when we get there.
Sure, we could stop at Walmart or Cracker Barrel parking lots, but if a stopover place has something that looks like it might be interesting, we like to stay more than one night. Somehow I would rather be awakened in the morning by birds singing than by traffic and early-morning shoppers. It's all about making the travel a relaxing and fun experience. There were plenty of times when we had limited time because of jobs, that we easily drove 500 miles or more in a day. No more! We are full-timers and one of our biggest luxuries is being able to take our time and see the country.
We stayed at Falling Waters for two nights. This gave us time to take a nice walk along the boardwalks to the park's namesake.
A waterfall. Sort of! As waterfalls go it was not very large, but because of reconstruction of some of the boardwalk and lower viewing platform, we were not able to go down to see it closely. Maybe from below it looks larger.

We did swat a few mosquitoes when we were sitting outside and reading, so we sprayed ourselves with "Off" before our walk.
Beautiful woods often have bugs.
Does anyone know what it is?
