Intracoastal Waterway

The water level fluctuates with the tides. It’s home to an array of species, including such birds as herons and pelicans,Continue reading “Intracoastal Waterway”

Betty Steflik Preserve/Black Creek

When we think of Jacksonville, we usually think of 2 things. We either picture thee beaches, or we think about the horrible traffic downtown on I-95. But, Jacksonville has another side. Tucked away from the hustle of town or the crowds at the beach, are hidden gems. State and county parks are among these. OneContinue reading “Betty Steflik Preserve/Black Creek”

Waterfalls in Florida?

It’s true; there really are waterfalls in the Sunshine State. Some are man made, like the Japanese gardens close to Jupiter Beach. Others are naturally occurring waterfalls. With things shut down for awhile, we haven’t been able to visit Devils Millhopper State Park, a geological marvel created by a large sinkhole. It should be openContinue reading “Waterfalls in Florida?”

Washington Gardens State Park

One of our “resolutions” for 2020 is to go to a different park every Sunday. One such park is Washington Gardens State Park in Flagler County, FL. This is a beautiful State Park that costs just $5 per vehicle to enter. It’s no secret that Florida has warmer temperatures in the winter, but it’s stillContinue reading “Washington Gardens State Park”

Getting Ready to Travel

We’ve spent another great summer in western North Carolina. We saw waterfalls, went on some good hikes,  saw several fun amusements and camped at some beautiful places. We’ve been coming here to this area of NC for the last 3 years, and sadly, we still have not seen it all. There is so much toContinue reading “Getting Ready to Travel”

Birthday Trip: Eastatoe Falls,Looking Glass Falls, Sliding Rock, Slick Rock, Ash Grove, and Bridal Veil Falls

This year’s birthday trip was a hot one. The first day wasn’t so bad because all the waterfalls we saw were roadside or just a short walk. The first one we came to was on private property in Rosman, NC. They graciously let people park behind their house in a designated area and walk toContinue reading “Birthday Trip: Eastatoe Falls,Looking Glass Falls, Sliding Rock, Slick Rock, Ash Grove, and Bridal Veil Falls”

2 Days, Triple “Peaks”: Grandfather Mountain, The Blowing Rock, and Chimney Rock

Our first stop for the day was supposed to be Linville Falls, but rain and lots of fog deterred our hike. We will have to save that one for another day. We continued on our journey to Grandfather Mountain. We had made these plans ahead around work schedules, so we had to do what weContinue reading “2 Days, Triple “Peaks”: Grandfather Mountain, The Blowing Rock, and Chimney Rock”
