Entries from 'Florida'

John Pennekamp State Park – Key Largo, FL

We left the Everglades a day earlier than we thought we would. Don’t get me wrong, we really enjoyed the scenery and interesting adventures, but I think it was the bugs that drove us out a bit before we thought we’d go. Those darn no-see-ums (aka the biting flies) are something to be reckoned with….

Alligator Alley – Everglades, FL

Working our way down the west coast of Florida, our next destination was Big Cypress, at the northern end of the Everglades. We went from Sarasota, land of Trader Joe’s and mega RV parks and a Target on every freeway exit, to Big Cypress. Here, there’s one stop light and one gas station and the…

Growing up so close to Disneyland in California, we have spent much…

A Jimmy Buffett Christmas (and New Year’s)

Chris’s parents came to visit us for Christmas and New Year’s. We wanted to be somewhere warm and knew we had to plan ahead a little bit with plane tickets to purchase and whatnot, so we arranged to meet them in Pensacola, Florida. They flew in on Christmas Day and we picked them up from…
