Welcome to my newest follower, rmnorman1. I couldn’t find a site for you, but if you do have one, contact me and I will put it up here. Thanks for riding along. Hope you enjoy are crazy traveling.
Well, it has happened!! I received a comment today that I had to delete. I guess this is what you call spam. Not going to post the name because I think that is what they wanted. It was nasty and disgusting and is deleted. If I can figure out how to do it, I will block them. Nuff said.
The same day we went to see The Fanning Springs State Park, we also drove the extra miles to see the Gulf Of Mexico. I mistakenly thought by driving down to the city of Suwannee, that we could reach the Gulf. Not so. We did make it to the city, but could find no way to get down to the ocean. Bummer… :(
I was really wanting to see how Rusty would handle the waves so, I hadn’t given up yet. We finally stopped at this little Café/bar type place and I went in and talked to a very nice young man about directions to the Gulf. He told me it was possible, but there was a 15 mile drive down a dirt road. He assured us the road was in good condition, and when we came to the end of it, there were only a couple more turns.
The road turned out to be right in the middle of a swamp, so, it was really interesting. We could hear birds calling and at one point there was a small gator in the road, but he was too quick for me to get a picture. We also scared a coon and he ran off too quick for a picture also. I loved the road and would probably take it again. Very peaceful.
We had to make a couple more turns and then there it was. There were lots of people everywhere again, but I did manage to get a few pictures. That kite was being flown by an older gentleman, and I thought it was a hand glider at first. When it got closer, I could see it was a dragon kite. Very cool.
As you can see, Donnie did finally get Rusty down close to the water, but he was only interested in the little boy carrying the other little dog. It was one of those tiny little yappy dogs, but cute as a button. Didn’t really want anything to do with Rusty, and Rusty didn’t want anything to do with the water. I think he thought, “oh, no, another bath”.
We didn’t stay long cause we had a long trip home and the people that were already there were camping and cooking so, we hightailed it on out of there.
We took a shorter route home. Rusty had been a good boy all day, and we didn’t want to push his patience any more than we had to. Besides, me and Don were getting tired too. We traveled about 200 miles on this day and needed to get home.
Do you all ever eat smoothies? I have been making a lot of them lately. We were getting in a bad habit of eating ice cream waaaaaay too much. This way we are getting a treat, but it is filled with fruit and yogurt. They are easy to whip up in the blender, and I use frozen fruit and/or fresh. Some of them have 2 or 3 different fruits. I love them and glad I rediscovered them.
