Southernmost! and back.

Well, after all of the planning and waiting and anticipation, we have been to the southernmost point in the continential US and back...Key West Florida. What a wonderful place to visit. It is such a nice combination of so many things and places. The "Conch Republic" is a very unique place with so many flavors thrown in to spice things up.

I don't have time right now to write all I want to about this place, but will get to it eventually, bur for now, just look at these pictures by clicking the link: Key West Photo Show. I put together a set of our favorite pictures, or you can see the album by clicking on the "DOTPHOTO.COM" link on the left of this page.

Just so you'll know, we left Monroe Thursday night and drove to Brunswick GA where we pulled into a Wal-Mart parking lot about 10:00 PM. We shared the outer part of the parking lot with 3 other RVs that night, and were on the road by 7:00 the next morning.

All day driving got us through central Florida to Homestead/Florida City that night, where we found an RV park. We took our time getting there so we could detour around Lake Okeechobee, which we had never seen before.

By 9:30 we were on the Old Dixie Highway (US-1) headed on the only road south toward Key West. We took our time - what else is there to do? - and arrived at Bluewater Key RV Resort
about 1:00 PM. WOW! What a place. We have NEVER stayed at an RV park that was much more resort than RV park. Here is a picture of our parking site for the next 5 days.
We spent the next 5 days exploring in and around Key West, the Lower Keys from Little Torch Key to Key West, and just hanging around our waterfront site enjoying the beauty of this place.

I think I'll just keep paddling!!!

On Friday morning, we left and drove to Flagler Beach between Daytona and St. Augustine FL. That was a 400+ mile drive that put us in our beachside campsite at the Gamble Rogers Memorial Recreation Area about 5:00 PM that evening. We stayed there Saturday enjoying the beach before heading home Sunday.

Please look at the pictures and leave comments and questions. If you are a camper and want info on the places we stayed, let me know and I will write more details or send you info in an email.

I do plan on writing more about what we did and where we stayed as time permits.

Again, all your questions and comments are welcome.

I am so excited to have found your blog with pics. We are new owners of 5th wheel. We have only been on 2 trips so far both pretty local once to New Bern which is only 2 hours from us and then to Charleston SC only about 3 1/2 hours. But, we are going to the Keys for Easter and are staying at Bluewater Key. We are so excited to see you pics. We found the resort on line and were hiping that it would be as pretty as in the pics. Your pics prove that to be true. We will be on site #8 a canal site. Were all the sites as pretty as yours? Do you have any advice for the trip down? Thanks for sharing the beautiful photos!
