For my second week I’m staying at the “Original Suwannee River Campground” and yes, it is very….very original. A lot of people live here full time and everyone was quite friendly.
I didn’t even take the kayak off the truck but spent many hours riding my bike along the Nature Coast State Trail. It used to be a railroad track but has been converted to a paved nature trail. It goes on for 32 miles and connects 5 small towns. It also crosses the Suwannee River via and old rebuilt trestle.
I also visited Manatee Springs State Park. It has some very clear water that stays approximately 72 degrees year round.
Of course this Florida water snake made me think twice about going swimming…… 🙂
