One Short Stop and Then Back Home

We left Cedar Key and headed towards Crystal River to Rock Crusher Canyon RV Park... What a great park it is and we have decided we liked it so much that we may stay there next winter (2012).


While there we had some friends come and meet up with us... Great fun ~ the first day we went to Crackers to eat, it's located right on the river, and we all had the Grouper Sandwich.... and the guys had a few beers.... It was a great time for catching up and enjoying the atmosphere.



The next day we headed out for a late lunch at Red Lobster ~ it's the Shrimp all you can eat extravaganza.... YUMMO!


After we ate we went back to our motorhomes and played Hand & Foot ~ It had been a long time since we played and we really had fun....


Great Food ~ Great Friends ~ Great FUN!

Got Clams!!!

Cedar Key ~ Florida is the #1 Clam Producer in the USA and they have the sign to prove it. Whenever we are camping near here with our friends or by ourselves we come to Cedar Key to buy clams... 100's of them. We cook them in soup, steam them or eat them raw and they are so good. We are here for 4 days and I am looking forward to some great food and to visit some really good friends who we haven't seen in a long time. We are staying at Cedar Key RV Resort and if you would like to know more about it there go over to my review site and check it our by clicking right here.

So sit back and enjoy my little slide show on the reflections of Cedar Key.

A Visit to a Great State Park

Torreya State Park ~ Bristol, Florida

We headed out early in the morning to visit this state park and look for some waymarks in Bristol... High bluffs overlooking the Apalachicola River make Torreya one of Florida's most scenic places. A lot of artifacts have been found on this site. From the early Seminole Indian Wars to the Civil War.



The park is named for an extremely rare species of Torreya tree that only grows on the bluffs along the Apalachicola River. Developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s, Torreya is popular for camping, hiking, and picnicking. Bird-watching is also a popular activity. Over 100 species of birds have been spotted in the park.





Forests of hardwood trees provide the finest display of fall color found in Florida. The main campground offers full-facility campsites and a YURT (Year-round Universal Recreational Tent). We took a few pictures of the camping area which is very rustic.



On the grounds of this State Park is the Gregory House, a fully furnished plantation home built in 1849. The Gregory House, built by planter Jason Gregory, was part of a prosperous plantation before the Civil War. It originally stood across the river from the park at Ocheesee Landing. In 1935, the CCC moved the house to its current location. We took the tour of the house with Ranger Rob Crombee who did an excellent job explaining the history of the home and stories of early plantation life.











It was a fun day and we spent it all there in the park... We even enjoyed a picnic lunch there that I had packed up before we left ~ and I got another stamp in my Florida State Park Passport Book.

Historic Bainbridge, Georgia ~ Part II

Warning this post is mostly photos: I just had to share these wonderful buildings with you ☺

Our driving tour of Bainbridge consisted of over 50 historic homes and churches so you can easily see how I had a hard time trying to decide which ones to share with you. It truly amazes me how many historic homes are in the small towns especially in Georgia. Who knew ~ not me. These following homes are all well over 100 years old. We just love the architecture of them and I never tire of looking at them. There must be some money in this town too. I wonder if they have Coca~Cola stocks too... lol











Here are just a few of the wonderful old buildings in the area ~ the little town is so warm & friendly.







Prior to the establishment of Bainbridge, the Oak City Cemetery site had long been home to an Indian Village. It was established as a cemetery in 1853 when William H. Peabody was buried there. His grave is located next to the powder house, where gun powder was stored during the Civil War. In 1878, the west section of the cemetery was deeded to Temple Beth-El and became one of the first Jewish Cemeteries in South Georgia.





So that is the rest of our day in Bainbridge ~ a beautiful old southern town.
