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.

Sebastian Inlet State Park/ Sebastian,FL

Sunday November 24th. We wanted to get an early start because we have about 240 miles to drive today.  We got on the road around 8:30 and  the drive seemed really long. It sprinkled some but that wasn't the real problem, the wind that kicked up now that was something and the gusts were wicked. You could really feel them when we were going over the causeways. Then it started raining more. We pulled into the State Park and found out the Campground was over the bridge, so they redirected us out over the bridge and right to the camping area. At least it was an easy turn around. We drove right to our site  #37, it was a little difficult to get in but we got it done. It was still windy and raining so that didn't help either. Our site wasn't very level because  we were on a downhill slope. We do have a self leveling system on our rig and we also put plastic blocks under the legs. When we went to level her up we couldn't get it to self level so Jeff had to level it himself this time by running it in manual mode. We finished setting up and after the rain stopped we ventured out to see what this  campground  has to offer. The water looked really gray and not pretty at all, the bright side....we saw dolphins. I love watching dolphins. What really concerned us was the weather forecast for tomorrow wasn't that good either.


Monday it was cloudy like they said so Jeff decided to go fill up the truck and visit the McLarty Treasure Museum. It was just 2 miles down the road and onlycost $2.00 to get in so the price was right. The museum was about the Spanish fleet of ships that sank off the coast of Florida in 1715. They sank right off the coast were the museum is located and they are still finding treasure off the coast today.

Me, I decided to stay back and do the laundry and clean our screens, but before noon the sun decided to make an appearance and the clouds moved out and the blue sky showed up. We decided to walk around and ended up by the water, now with the sun out it went from a dirty gray to a pretty aqua. To make it even better it was alive with people fishing from the shore, boats dotting the water and dolphins swimming around them. It was so nice we decided to get the bikes down to see more. I couldn't believe how many people were out fishing. I think that's one of the draws here...fishing. We rode our bikes down to the pier and the jetties. It's really pretty here, the bad thing is we are only here for 2 days we haven't even began to see all it's beauty. Would love to come back here someday.




We really watched the radar trying to plan our departure. It's calling for rain and possible thunderstorms on Tuesday our moving day, the good news we don't have very far to travel.
