Hi there!

We are having a good trip, tho I don't think anyone here is jealous of my 11 year old rig.

This is a really...lovely... place, great for walking and bike riding tho the warnings of alligators keep me away from the water.

I am in an available spot, not the prettiest spot...some of the sites here are large, and on the water...couldn't be prettier.

Lily is exhausted, and sacked out for the night...3 walks and two bike rides today.

She is doing extremely well, running along beside me, right past other dogs without faltering a step.

Good girl, Lily.


Maggie

Hi Miss Gail!

They were both Pleasureways, I believe, older models not on the Sprinter chassis.

Waiting at LabCorp in Jackson Beach to have labs done....dumped the tanks this am and made our way on 90 out here, thru Glen St. Mary and Macclenny...must be some Irish there.

Found a farmers market with beautiful Florida navel oranges...I have been wanting those, and intend to enjoy them.

Next stop will be Talbot Island SP for the next three nights.

We are settled into Talbot Island SP, where I don't believe we have ever been, and it is beautiful.

If you've ever been to Cumberland Island, it is like camping there, with W/E and a bathhouse. They had a walk in site available, so I switched to it and will stay til Sunday...a bird in the hand, you know.

Coastal sites are hard to come by on the weekends.

Will probably take the Interstate over to the beach most days while here...the beach where Lily is not allowed to run, but where we can have the comforts and watch the ocean... and where I will do a little beach walking.

Lily won't understand, but she will just have to handle it.

A little online research last evening informed me that, while dogs are not allowed on State Park beaches, they are allowed on Nassau County/Amelia Island beaches.

And so, a short drive north this morning took us to a beach where Lily can run, and did with great delight and abandon.

We are going to explore Amelia Island a bit today, and check out all of them.

She would have been very confused, indeed.

Lots of dog owners out here...I figured there had to be someplace for them to go, or dog people wouldn't be here.

It's always a bit cooler at the beach, too...more breeze.

Going to pull out my Sun Umbrella for the next ones....if you've never seen these, they are excellent...portable shade.

Mine is actually a GustBuster...https://www.amazon.com/GustBuster-Su.../dp/B0009E3EGY

Perfect for the over-heater and Danish ancestry me that wants to burn thru anything.

Have fun on the beach, Maggie. I'm sure Lily is over the moon happy to run the beach with you. Evelyn.

She was quite happy...three beach walks on three separate beaches, and we looked at all of the public beaches on Amelia Island.

There is one just over the bridge, which I think will become our daily go-to while here, as it is close and has a somewhat shaded but very small parking lot...less crowded.

I found a Harris Teeter on the island, too, should groceries be needed.

Really a lovely area, tho much more developed than Edisto... by far, my favorite of all of these barrier islands.

I'll get a picture of my site after a bit.

Maggie

Had my coffee and we were at the beach by 8:30 this morning...took a long walk, dodging other dogs whose owners were also letting theirs run in the quiet early morn.

Lily was very good, staying right with me and not engaging, tho one less,well behaved came right up to her and sniffed her behind before his owner could get to us.

Good girl, Lily.

Had some breakfast and another cup of coffee, did a little food prep, and then we took a second walk with my portable shade umbrella.

By the time the sun is high in the sky, it is too hot and too humid to be out there...so after that, we left.

I'm sorry, I know it is very cold in some parts of the country, but it is warmer here than I would like...and certainly more humid. There, I said it.

Florida is having an unusually mild winter, which is good for some, but I am not a heat-seeker...not now, not ever. I'm not complaining, just acknowledging the state of things.

There is a very large woodpecker of some sort, with a very large beak, who pecks hard early each morning near our site....not too early for me, as I seldom sleep til daylight ... but it is a busy fella, and I need to get my binoculars out to see if I can identify it.

I wonder if it is a piliated woodpecker, as they are bigger than your average woodpecker.

There is a Fishing Bridge to Amelia Island, running parallel to A1A, which I am enthralled with.

https://www.floridastateparks.org/pa...e-Crady-Bridge

No vehicles, but dozens of people out there, safe from traffic, fishing their little hearts out.

I love it.


Maggie

It rained in the night, waking me up to close my roof vent.

88% humidity at 10am, with an expected high of 76 degrees here.

I broke down, and turned on the AC. In January.

Shook the rugs and did some cleaning, and we are skipping the drive to the beach today.

Lily is also very tired, so we will walk, check out the nature trails, and watch the inauguration proceedings...I can't help it, I feel I must.

Inside, with the AC on, coming to you from Talbot Island.

Maggie

Good for you, Maggie. No matter which party we prefer, when our party wins or when the other party wins....this is an historic moment for us all.no other country in this world shares the freedoms that we have. To observe the peaceful transfer of power, is a freedom we should not miss.

I pray that the changes will be good for us all. There is so much to do and I hope he can rise to the occasion.
