Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Over the Rainbow Springs

We made it to Rainbow Springs with no problems, we got some tips from John & Joan because the entrance is not marked very well. We had another great spot. This one was a pull through so simple to set up. It was also a full hook up so that's always nice. I didn't feel to good moving day so after we landed I just rested.

The next day we were just checking out the campground when we met our neighbors Tim and Issy. We made plans to kayak the river with them. This river is unbelievably clear and we had a wonderful time getting to know them a bit. First we kayaked up toward the head springs then floated down. We got pictures of otters, turtles, and lots of birds. It was a great day. We finished the float at Swampys and John & Joan were eating there as we floated by.

The first weekend the park had Cracker Days at the head springs. We went there and looked around. It was so beautiful there.

We really enjoyed the birds here. We could watch the bald eagles from our camp spot, also lots of other birds. I never realized how many different sounds the birds made.

We also drove to Inverness to ride on the bike path. It was really nice. It is a 46 mile paved trail that is a popular biking route. We rode around 18 miles and had lunch at Beef O Bradys afterwards.

We did get another float down the river in. I was in in the boat while Jeff was in the water snorkeling. He really enjoyed that but got a bit cold .

The 2 weeks really went by fast. A bonus was we met up with our friends John & Joan and got to spend more time with them. We had them over for supper and had a very nice evening.

This is definitely on the return list. I loved this campground! I have decided to give our camper a name I'm gonna call it The HOW...(home on wheels ). We are also gonna try and post a little more regularly. We are kinda getting the hang of this so if we post more frequently we won't have to remember as much.
