It was another cold clear morning...lots of blue sky, but very chilly! It was a travel day today, but it was only about an hour and a half drive so we decided not to rush. Instead, after breakfast and dishes, we decided to go for a walk on Bear Swamp Trail. Today we were bundled up as we walked the trail...hard to believe that 6 days ago we went for the same walk and were in our shorts and T-shirts and “complaining” on how hot and humid it was!
It was 12:40 p.m. as we pulled out of Salt Springs Campground and onto highway 19 heading south. It was a fairly straight route south until we got closer to our destination, and then Serena had us taking all sorts of turns onto different highways and roads but we made it, arriving at about 2:15. I’m glad we have a GPS because it is such a maze of highways on the map going every which way as you get closer to Orlando. Wekiwa Springs State Park is just outside (north) of Orlando. Our plan is to stay here until December 14th when we will drop our rig off at Suncoast RV so they can do the warranty work on the 5th wheel while we fly home for Christmas.
As we checked in at the office, they seemed rather sceptical about being able to get our rig into our assigned campsite (#2)...hmmm...let’s keep our fingers crossed. The actual campground is about a mile from the front gate. It was a bit challenging getting backed in our site. It wasn’t so much because of the size of the site; but rather being able to manoeuvre the truck due to a post marking the campsite across the road. But we managed to get backed in and once unhitched, the truck fit in the site as well.
