Here it is, the dead of Winter. In fact it going down to 18 degrees here tonight according to the "Storm Tracker Team". I feel kind of bad whining about that when I see that the high tomorrow in Chicago is going to be only 1 degree above 0. But it helps to think about the next RV trips we will take. Our plans are for a late March weekend trip to Edisto Island State Park, and an early May week to the Florida Keys
Our spring birthday weekend trip in March is to Edisto Beach State Park. Here is a picture we took on an earlier trip to Edisto. At Edisto there is a large loop at the end of the campground that is right on the beach... as in right ON the beach. This picture was made from the beach looking back to that loop. The site we have reserved for our March weekend trip is about where you see the RV right in the middle of this picture. These sites are very hard to reserve due to their popularity. Right after Christmas, I was checking out the reservation system and saw that site available for a Friday and Saturday that happen to be Pam's birthday weekend. I went ahead and reserved the two days.
We will probably take off work Friday, and hopefully leave home after work Thursday, driving as far as we want to Thursday evening and finding an overnight parking place somewhere down the road. That will put us into Edisto early Friday so we will have almost another whole day there. I was thinking, that since this is to be such a short trip, we should leave the Tracker home. But Pam reminded me what a shame it would be not to have another dinner at the "Old Post Office" restaurant in Edisto...so I guess we'll take the Tracker.
We are also planning our big Spring Break Trip to the Florida Keys. We will take a full week for that trip and plan to stay 4 nights at the Bluewater Key RV resort. It is one of the nicest places we have ever considered staying and it is only 12 miles from downtown Key West. After that, we will move to the Curry Hammock State Park near Marathon, then stop over for two nights on the way home at Rogers Gamble State Park between Daytona and St. Augustine. All of these campgrounds are right on the water.
