Good news, I’m on the move again, so my posts will start to get more interesting now that I have new things to see and photograph. I did enjoy Gainesville, my new hometown, and its many parks. This is a shot from one of those parks last Friday. Between the trees and the palms, there’s a lot to love about Florida forests.
There’s a lot to love about South Carolina, too, now that I’m back on the coast here. This was the Sunday night view as storm clouds started to roll in and high tide hit the marshlands.
I had planned to drive the 6 hours from Gainesville on Monday, but rain in the forecast (and my friend’s astute noticing of that weather forecast) got me to pack up and head out on Sunday instead. It rained all day Monday, so I was happy and dry in my tiny trailer instead of on the interstate dodging trucks and raindrops.
The state park here has some lovely trails. I kind of feel like the photo above is a movie set, not a real life forest trail. But I walked on it so it must be real.
More real, unfortunately, is all the damage that the hurricane did last year. It devastated the beachfront camping (I’m over in the forest section) and this tree is one clear example of how strong the winds were. The hurricane literally cracked this strong tree into two pieces.
I’ll be on the coast here for another week or so, moving between two campgrounds, and enjoying it all. It’s a good start to my 2018 Spring/Summer Adventure!
I’m writing a new part of my story. Something so new & untouched by all the chapters before. I deserve new. I deserve surprises. I’ve outgrown my storyline of old and so let life be fresh, because I am ready for a new adventure.
