Day 171: A day in Seaside, Florida.

Our short 2-night stay at Saint Joseph Peninsula came and gone way faster than we had hoped.  This is definitely a spot I can see myself spending at least a week at next time we are in the area. With still a handful of places to see in the panhandle before crossing over into Alabama, we headed back towards the mainland and kept on moving westward.

Day 169: Apalachicola revisited.

Last night was the coldest night we have had in a long time. It is definitely not shorts and t-shirt weather around here anymore as it dipped into the 30s for the first time for us since the Carolinas back in October. Hopefully this is just a cold spell that will pass as we intend on keeping our summer clothes around for as long as we can.

Day 162: Sailing Tampa Bay.

One of the main reasons why we met up again with Kyle here in St. Petersburg has to do with what we are doing today. A few months ago, I found out that Kyle had taken sailing lessons at Charleston, South Carolina. Well before I was into Airstreaming, I was an avid sailor and had owned a handful of sailboats in my past. After chatting about boats for awhile, Kyle and I decided that since we are both spending our winters in Florida, we should get together and do a day charter.

Day 160: Meeting Boxfotos and a tour of a TV station.

For the last couple of weeks, we have been corresponding with a facebook friend about our visit to Tampa. Some of you might have heard of Matt and Rebecca of Boxfotos. Matt kindly offered to give us a tour of his workplace which happens to be WFLA of Tampa. They are also the NBC affiliate of the greater Tampa area. We have never been on a tour of a TV studio so we gladly accepted his offer.

Day 157: Another quiet day at John Pennekamp.

Today is our last full day in the keys. I can’t believe we have been here almost a whole month. In a month’s time, this little guy has gone from just crawling to pulling himself up to cruising and is getting so much better at bothering his big sisters. The girls figured out that the couch is a Luka-free zone… for now.

Day 154: Final keys stop at John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park.

Our stay at Curry Hammock has officially come to an end. Our camp spot was the one tucked to the left of that palm tree, in between one of the campground hosts and the dump station. Too bad our hose couldn’t reach the dump from our site. Haha. Truthfully, we actually did fine with no sewer hook-ups for the four nights that we stayed our last spot. Doing dishes is always our downfall with water consumption. We really should get a more efficient faucet.

Day 153: Crane Point Museum, Nature Center and Historic Site.

Just so that our stay at Curry Hammock is not completely devoid of adventure, we did manage to make it out of our state of relaxation for a little sightseeing. While at Bahia Honda, we made a day trip to Key West. During our time at Long Key, we drove up to Islamorada for an afternoon at Robbie’s marina. Here at Curry Hammock, it is Crane Point Museum, Nature Center and Historic Site.

Day 133: Key West, Florida.

If we were planning on going to see Key West, then our best bet would be to go from the Bahia Honda campground since it is much closer than the other two state parks we also have reservations at over the next few weeks. It still feels a little weird to go to cities we already explored during our 2010 cross country trip so we are going to make a conscious effort on not repeating anything we saw last time around. Challenge… accepted!

Day 128: A quick stop in Winter Park, Florida.

Our four night stay at Fort Wilderness in Disney World has come to an end. We are all a little sad to go but our wallets can’t take this place for more than the 4 nights we have already spent here. The campground is pricey at $65 a night but what killed us more were the 2 day passes we bought for the Magic Kingdom for 4. Thankfully, little Luka was free. But I must say that this campground is well worth its price. There are so many people here but you hardly see anyone, rarely have to stand in lines and getting to the Magic Kingdom is just a short boat ride away.
