Today was our last day of camphosting here at Otter Springs Park and Campground. We have enjoyed our stay here very much, and once again have met some wonderful folks while here. The other workampers have been great, and we enjoyed meeting the few permanent residents here as well. Its a really nice place to spend some time, especially in the winter months when things are quiet and laid back.
Now that the water levels have risen enough to allow passage down the springs run to the Suwanee River, we took a canoe out early one morning for a leisurely paddle. It was very quiet and serene, great for a paddle!
These are the canoes that you can rent from the office.
Headed down the run
Don't you love the vivid greens of early spring?
There are some really big trees up here!
The springs run entering the Suwanee River
I love the knobby cypress knees.
Tall trees dripping with Spanish moss...does it get any more southern than this?
So, tomorrow we pack things up and head down to Homosassa for the next week. We have final items to tie up before heading west. When we were at the Tampa RV show in January, I had won a week's stay at any Carefree Camping Resort. When I checked to see where their campgrounds are, there's one, Turtle Creek, right in Homosassa behind the Wildlife Park. It's very convenient, being only about 15 minute's drive from the house, so we'll be staying there for the week. Free is good! Then its back on the road again a week from tomorrow :-).
