Heading North to Pensacola

We left the Midway Campground and drove to Wauchula to stay at the Thousand Trails there for two nights, then to the Stephen Foster Cultural Center for two nights, Falling Waters State Park for three nights and then to Fort Pickens Campground in the Gulf Shores National Seashore near Pensacola where we had reservations for two weeks.

When we arrived at the Stephen Foster Cultural Center State Park, it was apparent, Spring is just around the corner.  

The Wild Azaleas were beginning to bloom.

 While at the Falling Waters State Park, we took the hiking trail to the only waterfall in Florida.  The water falls 73 feet

into a large sinkhole.  Its destination is still unknown.

Also, while we were at Falling Waters SP, we drove to Ozark, Alabama to take a look at where the Dean Family originally lived before moving to East Texas after the Civil War.

March is Spring Break Month and you definitely have to have reservations somewhere and ours were at Fort Pickens Campground which is located directly across from the Pensacola Naval Yard on a barrier island.

We're looking forward to exploring and just relaxing.

  1. I want to be where you are.

    Gotta watch out for those sinkholes, they can swallow whole houses!
