Stephen Foster & 4th of July

We spent 3 days at Lee's Country Campground and really enjoyed it there. The owners are a very nice couple and really keep this park clean and relaxing. But now we have returned to Stephen Foster Folk Cutural Center State Park which we just adore. The sad thing is that it has been so dry up in this part of Florida that the Swannee River is very low and I don't think you could even boat in it. We have had some rain but no where near enough! It is ashamed that so many areas around our country either have too much water while others do not have enough. I was concerned that all the birds that were coming to my feeders would not come back but as soon as we put it up they were back. Also finally one little lone hummingbird has shown up. This morning when I got up there were several birds and a couple of rabbits outside. I just love nature and wildlife!

On the first Saturday of each month here at Stephen Foster there is a night when people come from all around to share their wonderful talents at the Nellie Bly Kitchen. You have everything from Barbershop Quartets to Old fashion story tellers. It is really an enjoyable evening with a lot of very talented local people. It is something you shouldn't miss if given the opportunity. Sorry I forgot my camera so no pictures.



I wish you all a very safe & fun 4th of July weekend. Keep safe as you celebrate our country's independence... and enjoy your families ♥

I really like your new campground blog - especially since it has so many Florida parks. You have really done a nice job with it. I've been working on one for ages and never finished it - too busy traveling I guess, ha ha.

Love the bird photo.

Happy 4th of July. We're in Michigan with beautiful weather so far.

Looks like you are having a wonderful time there at the campground. What a beautiful place, and this bird photo just stole my heart. How precious is that. You get to see a lot of nature being in the parks don't you?

Have a beautiful 4th sweet friend. Thanks for taking me on the road again with Tassie. I love the journey. Many hugs and much love from Phoenix, Sherry

We were camping at Stephen Foster on June 24th & 25th. I think I remember your rig. It is very dry there. My husband and I both visited the park when we were kids with our parents and remember the river being so much higher.
We had a nice stay. It really rained on Saturday night, and we needed the rain so badly. North Florida has been in such a drought.

I enjoy your blog and have become a follower. Thanks for sharing.

We've been away for a while, good to be back with you again! We'd like to visit the Stephen Foster Park someday. Too bad so many of his songs are so "politically incorrect" that no one will sing them in public!
