On the road into the glades…we spent so long here that I have too many photos! Where to start???
Oh right, the campsite…
We heard from the Park Ranger that even if there were campsites available at the Flamingo site, we should avoid it saying, “the mosquitos will take your breath away.” ’nuff said. We stayed at Long Pine.
And here we are…please note, watch your step….yes, that is a rattle snake in our yard.
That said, we loved it. It was dry and very few mosquitoes, they only came out at dusk and very few. We walked the paths through the park, enjoying the flora and great sunsets.
There was a great fruit and vegetable stand on the way into the park that was right in the middle of great farm land, called “Robert is Here.” I loved the papaya’s and boiled peanuts!
Watering the fields was impressive.
Part two …. on it’s way.
