The St Aug Blog – St Augustine, FL

Chris, in his never-ending campsite sleuthing pursuit, found us a spot for five nights at the desirable Anastasia State Park in St Augustine, towards the northeastern part of Florida. We pulled into town after sunset, which we hadn’t done in awhile, and made a wrong turn down a street close to the state park, with…

Kennedy Space Center – Cape Canaveral, FL

Cape Canaveral was a place that had been on my radar since we were in Orlando in January. Mom and I had talked about driving out there from Orlando while Chris was working in Vegas, but the two hour or so drive out there never materialized at that point. I knew Chris was interested in…

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…
