September 30th, Sunday – Home is Where We Park It, Suwannee River State Park

Last night none of us got much sleep, not even Marti.  Barbara and I just couldn’t get to sleep,  We were up, we were down.  Marti spent the whole night sneezing, yup, sneezing.  Poor dog looked so pathetic.  He just did’t know what was going on.  Suffice to say it wasn’t an early morning nor an early start.  We finally got on the road around 11 am.

Today was a much better travel day all the way around.  Though my back was still a problem, at least today, I could manage it.  Then the funnest thing happened, about half way through the trip the pain for the most part went away.  Just like that.  It would come  back from time to time but not to the degree of the day before.  Even Barbara started feeling better.  No explanation but no complaints from either of us.

Traffic was also light and the roads were for the most part clear.  No delays for construction anywhere along the route.  My kind of trip.  Smooth sailing from beginning to end.

Entering Florida we of course had to stop at the visitor center for our free glass of juice.

Just what the doctor ordered on a long trip.  A refreshing glass of juice for a quick pick me up.  Juice down the hatch, we were back on the road with just under an hour to go.

So we are now home for the next two weeks.  And where is home?  As we always say Home is Where We Park It and we are now parked at Suwannee State Park in Florida.

Located near the Suwannee River, the campground offers 30 oak-shaded sites with electricity, water, sewer, picnic table and fire ring.   This is the entrance to the park itself.

Here is our site.  Wide, level, FHU with 50 amp and with lots of shade.  Really nice.

Thanks again for joining us on The Road of Retirement.  The last two days have been a bit rough around the edges.   Not the way we would have scripted them.  Yet we made it.  And once again we made it as we always do, hand in hand, traveling along, singing our song.  So you will get no complaints from us.  Life is still good and holds the promise of even better days to come.

Time now to say goodnight but before I go a thought for each of us to ponder:

As always,  if you are coming to the end of your day with concerns and worries, let me suggest that you turn them over to God.  After all, He is going to be up all night so why not let him handle them for you.

Time now for our evening prayers and eventually some shut-eye.  Till tomorrow.

These are the voyages of  Graybeard and it’s occupants, four paws and two humans.  Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have not been before
