Out early to go to Wakulla Springs. We were here about 22 years ago or so, in the summer. At that hot and humid time we saw many alligators and turtles sunning themselves, and perhaps a snake or two in the overhanging branches. This time it was cooler–65 degrees. But because it is warmer here than in the gulf, we were able to see manatees wintering in the springs!
They are so ugly, they are cute!
This place had the best home-made sausage! They do their own smoking and processing of hogs, on-site. www.bradleyscountrystore.com/The floors are really old, as are the displays along the top of the shelves. It is worth the trip to go outside of town for their sausage, and I’d assume their bacon, too!
We’ve been to many car museums in our travels, but never to one that had such a wide interest level. Not only are there cars from every era… , including movie cars…, and children’s toys , but there were trains, dolls,and golf clubs (too many to count). Anything that someone would want to collect seems to be represented in this museum. I did not know how many different boat motors there were! Lots of dishes, too. Steinway pianos were here… And in case you ever travel to dangerous parts of the world, make sure you take your Vampire Kit with you!
Oh, for Maggie–the temperature reached a balmy 77 degrees today! I understand Paola was a little less than that…27, maybe??? 🙂 Off to new adventures tomorrow!
