Drove north on CR 833, then east on SR 80, then north on US 27, to Highland's Hammock, just west of Sebring, about 110 miles. When we got in we had to wait for a site to open up. The place was mobbed with kids on bikes… dozens upon dozens! This is one very busy and popular park. There's lots of trails and various other organized activities to do. Morning coffee, evening hot dogs, campfire entertainment, tram rides, lots of trails… also a pretty nice primitive camping area that's much quieter… but costs $17 a night, with just an outhouse. Jim left us on Wednesday and started his slow trek back to Oregon.
We walked all the trails, more than once. Had a nice visit from Donna's sister & hubby. Visited with Cindy & Al, our co-grandparents and enjoyed a great pizza dinner at Zeno's. Spent a lot more lazy days around camp reading. Ate 3 times at the Sebring Diner… good food and perhaps the most efficiently run place I've ever seen. Got propane before we left… only the second tank fill in 3 months!
Saw some juvenile wild hogs and very large trees… over 1000 years old!
