Swampy water - where's the Alligators?

A few patches of wildflowers

Spanish Moss on the trees

Lodge building with dump to the side

Nice wide grassy RV spaces with Water & Electric, and our neighbors...

The thunder storm that didn't happen, was colorful at sunset


Today we decided not to take the coast because it would be too long a drive, so we went inland a little and traveled through the Apalachicola National Forest.

Some of the time we traveled along rural roads with swampy water along the sides and Larry kept telling me to watch for Alligators. We saw a few patches of wildflowers along the roads, but not nearly as many as in Texas.

We arrived at Perry Elks Lodge and by the time we were all set up, Sam & Carolyn showed up. We went into the lodge for dinner and stayed for the Karaoke. It was a lot of fun and the regular members that stay for Karaoke were very appreciative of new singers. We sure had fun!

The RV spaces are on nice grass with water & 50 amp electric (good for running A/C in this bad humidity) and there was a dump next to the building. Nice lodge, friendly people, huge property probably over 20 acres, with a soccer field.

Perry, Florida is the Tree Capital of the South and you can read more about it on this site, City of Perry.
