Musings about fun between my legs

Wind from a New Direction


April 27: Quincy to Crawfordville, FL

Our route today was south – and the wind was from the south, rather than the easterly wind we are used to. It did help to keep us cool as the temperature rose into the mid 80s by mid-afternoon.

Much of our early miles were in the Apalachicola National Forest, quiet road and beautiful scenery.



There was an optional side trip to the Wakulla Springs State Park, which Donna and I decided to explore.



We ate lunch in the Lodge, then walked along the beachfront.






On the way to Crawfordville, we passed this “truck cemetery”, nicely organized amid the trees.


We are staying at the Inn at Wildwood with a golf course next door.


I plan to go back to the Park tomorrow, for a massage, and hopefully a boat trip along the Wakulla River.

59 miles today; average 11.4 mph.
