Wekiwa Springs State Park - January 2007


wssp-01-07-017.JPG

As our once-a-week hike in perpetuity, this week Jenny, Don, and I headed to the familiar stomping grounds of Wekiwa Springs State Park, four miles from my house. It was a fine January day, fine company, and fine scenery. Alas, I didn't get a helluva lot of sleep last night, so the usual proliferation of photographs is not forthcoming. There are enough, though, to put you to sleep (and me, too!).

Potts Preserve - January 2007

Friend Jenny and I grabbed the camping gear and headed to Potts Preserve, near Inverness, Florida, for a couple of days of camping, geocaching by sunlight and moonlight, hiking, Jeeping, and nature. It was a great way to ring in the new year.

Obligatory Waitress Photo114 viewsAfter checking out the park, we went to the motel, checked in, attempted a night cache, and then went to dinner. Jenny is always telling me about how she takes her kids to Ruby Tuesday because it is the only place to go. I guess I took that literally, because I decided that Ruby Tuesday was the only place to go, albeit in Marianna. This is Mary, our waitress. Mary, as it turns out, is a big political volunteer worker on the side.

Jenny the Rock Climber65 viewsOK, so it's not what was normally classified as a rated climb, but she was pretty brave to go up there with all those rattlesnakes sleeping right behind her.
