Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge

Today we spent the day at Save the Panther Open day at Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge. This was a free event that we found on their website while we were looking for places to camp, and huge shoutout to them!! It was amazing!! We got a quick shuttle to the gate then a swamp buggy ride in. We got to do archery 🏹 (not Col yet as his arm is still healing), a 45 minute swamp buggy ride through the refuge with biologist Mark and a rattlesnake telemetry talk. There was also stalls set up with info on local wildlife including a pet boa constrictor. We also got a free cookout lunch (burger, drink and cookie). You can see more here... . Thank you for such a great educational day 😊

We went to the Discovery centre which was full of info and FREE!! It had a 20 minute movie too about the Keys. So good. Highly recommend and the staff were so lovely. Then we went to the Fort Zachary Taylor Historic Park. Wow!!! The beach was amazing. Sadly too windy for a swim but the fort and history was well worth the visit. It cost $6 entry for up to 8 people in a vehicle 😊

Blue Springs State Park, Florida

Manatees

Today was a road trip day. We had a cooked breakkie then headed to Blue Springs, Florida for the day. We got to see the Florida manatees (sea cows). They come down to Florida for the winter as they prefer the warmer waters. We also saw some Florida gar and mullet. Then a short boardwalk to see the cave where scuba divers can explore. It was a bit overcast today so we had warm soup for lunch. When you go to the deli in Publix (supermarket) they have fresh made hot soup for sale. Perfect for the cooler weather 😊A949402F-3253-4568-B3EE-E4964847C952.jpeg6D78F529-62B3-40E4-963F-BCA65FF96E20.jpeg9F1DB041-9F93-4A65-B472-6ED8DB3EA195.jpeg1AB929D5-9468-4247-BD86-3519150B9708.jpegCAF6651C-312F-4A0D-B237-3EE1A6F2A873.jpegBC365735-C3B2-44E3-BF12-DCF356277F7C.jpegBFB311C1-B036-403D-90DD-179019CE7AE0.jpeg6A7913A8-4EDE-4BA0-A5CE-B60DFCB1B6E7.jpeg

Last two days has been lots of driving to check out used RV’s. We have a budget and list of what we need the RV to have to make this trip work. And we aren’t budging. For example - less than 34’ so we can get access into all national parks. Today I think we found it 😍 now to organise currency transfer at the best rate from AUS to USA and the dramas that brings. I’ll do a video update again soon. And a big thank you to Uncle Robert for looking after the kiddles today so we could go looking solo.
