Manatee Springs


Today we find ourselves at Manatee Springs State Park.
We spent a couple nights in Panama City, FL that was plenty for us. Just another Spring Break destination in our opinion.

We haven’t see any manatees yet but the place is beautiful and peaceful. It’s a nice change of pace for a couple days. There’s very limited cell coverage and that’s mostly ok with me. Jim on the other hand, not so much!

I can’t believe I’m saying this but being away from the beach has its benefits. One thing we don’t miss are the sand spurs/burrs/ pickers whatever you wanna call them. They’re a PAIN literally and figuratively! Jim ended up having to buy a new tire for his bike because of them and the dogs got them stuck in their paws to the point where they didn’t want to go outside! Evil things!!!

This morning we are sitting outside the concession stand in our park where they’re smoking meats, the smell is certainly hunger inducing. It’s the only place in the park where we can kind of get internet. Jim is trying to get some (Gentex) work done. We are surrounded by vultures, there’s so many of them! It would seem like something out of an Alfred Hitchcock movie but not really, they are kind of entertaining. They make a helicopter sound when they take flight and they like to bicker with each other. Or maybe it’s just been too long since I’ve had the chance to enjoy nature.
