Heading to Florida

March 1

This morning had us at the doctor’s office bright and early for our six-month check-ups. It was because of this that we decided to make the trip to Sanibel Island in Florida a two day drive.

We pulled out of the driveway at 10:30AM. The plan was to find an overnight campground on the fly. We grabbed a bite for lunch at an Arby’s and I started looking for a place to crash for the night.

Blythe Island Regional Park, a county park in south Georgia, was our choice. It was a nice and comfortable campground. We got in just after the office had closed, but we got a call prior to arriving as to what to do and what site to park in. Upon driving thru the gates we saw a black rabbit of the domesticated variety lazing about, unbothered by our van driving by. Further into the park we spotted several more of this same type of rabbit, and they seemed quite tame. There were none near our campsite though.

We set up camp and Alan took a nap while I read. Dinner was lite and simple.

Campground: Blythe Island Regional Park, Georgia. This was a very laid back park with tons of shade. We saw all sorts of RVs there, as well as tent campers. Lakes are what make this popular during camping season, but we were here earlier and enjoyed the quiet. Restrooms were clean, campsites were fairly level.

We took off at 8:30am from Blythe Island and arrived at Periwinkle Park and Campground on Sanibel Island around 6:30pm.  It was a tight campground as camping spots go, but our little RV squeezed in just fine.

We noted an aviary just across the road from our campsite – bird pictures to come!
