Backroads of Florida

Well, we’re almost back home, but this is the part of our travels that is normally the least interesting. We’ve made the journey from Gainesville to South Florida (and vice versa) so many times that we now just endure it as a necessity to get out of Florida.

So today we decided to do things a little differently. And we started with Dale taking her very first stint behind the wheel in nearly 5 years and 50,000 miles of traveling the country in our motorhome.

She was a little tense at first, but settled in quickly.

All the way to the end of the campground!

Next, we decided to take the backroads and see a part of Florida often missed by tourists. We drove through the Ocala National Forest. It’s horse and timber country.

From there we went to the Atlantic coast at Cocoa Beach, just south of Cape Kennedy Space Center, and stopped at the beach.

Then we drove south on A1A to Ft. pierce where we’re spending the night. Here’s the view of the Intracoastal Waterway from A1A near Sebastian where I used to go surfing.

Back in South Florida tomorrow morning.

  1. Dale:
    I am sooooo proud of you…in time you will love driving that thing. I drove my dad’s on the Interstate in downtown Atlanta, Georgia I felt like I was on top of the world. It has been so much fun traveling with you two & Kelly! I sure you will be glad to be home for a while.

    Love, Sandy
