    Yep, I get that.

    If you ever do, I hope you get some photos and post them.

    I really want to do the whole "lighthouse" thing down the Eastern Seaboard. Just can't decide if I want to start in Maine or S. Carolina.

    I DO TOO!

    I bought two beautiful books this past Christmas on the Eastern US lighthouses... we've done about 4 or 5 of the lighthouses in Maine so far... I do have pictures of those, somewhere.... likely on the hubby's computer though, because I did a quick search and could not find them on mine!

    That would be cool. It's one of My bucket list items.

    I did the Carriage trail last summer for the first time. Well worth it.

    Campsites are nice. Have gravel filled tent pads, bear proof lockers for your coolers, fire ring, picnic tables and a basic privy.
    Last two years a reservation system was introduced. No rushing out to find a spot. Basically the BWCA with powerboats. Have a decent size boat, the lakes are massive.

    On FL, just was in the Everglades in Feb. Saw my first ever gator. I was surprised at Jackpine trees growing there.

    Good call. I grew up there. And it is truly spectacular. Countless overnighters, reckless tressle climbing, and even a cave for those who know where it is. Not to mention that’s where I got married. Definitely a must see attraction if one is ever up that way. The Glen Iris is also one of the best places you’ll ever eat. Especially for a teenager on prom night.
