The campground facilities here are neat and clean. The sites are spacious and nicely spaced. A few even have a view of a scenic lake. No water view for us this time, but it was a very short walk to enjoy the views.
Debbie and and I have had a great time with our birding. I won't bore you with our list but I'm confident Debbie will add some bird pictures!
|We saw quite a few of the easily identified Cardinals|
|We were excited to identify this more uncommon Eurasian Collared Dove|
|Lots of birds here to try to identify!|
A few days we traveled to some other parks in the area. We went to Lithia Springs County Park.
The main attraction there is, brace yourself, at least two large natural springs. It's open to the public for swimming. It was mighty pretty.
We visited the Aldermans Ford County Park.
There's a great paved trail that includes an elaborate system of raised boardwalks through the woods and adjacent to the Alafia River.
There's even exercise stations along the trail.
We also went to the The Little Manatee River State Park.
It straddles, yes, the Little Manatee River, which we understand is a popular place for canoeing.
We checked these places out because they normally include a beautiful setting and we're always considering these places for future camping.
Unrelated to our current lifestyle, I received an interesting phone call the other day. A classmate from elementary school that I haven't seen for 38 years contacted me. He lives a few communities north of Pop and I will see him sometime next week. The get together will be great fun!
We're moving to Fort Desoto County Park in St. Pete on Friday. We'll be there about 10 days.
