Today is a perfect warm breezed day at Salt Springs campground! It’s around 75 degrees and the balmy air is inspiring me to do absolutely nothing!
Here in the northern half of Florida signs of spring are all around. This dogwood in bloom is a great reminder of the coming April display at home. The red maples that were budding here in January now have their new leaves and little wildflowers are peaking through the pine needles. Purple azaleas are displaying full blooms in many of the quaint old neighborhoods.
For the past week we have been in the primitive section of Salt Spring cg roughing it without hookups. There was no room in the electric section and, surprisingly, the waiting list for electric sites was 3 pages long!
The price is right at $9.25 with the senior pass and the privacy and quiet during the week is excellent! Surviving the past 3 day holiday weekend is another story! The campground was full of children screaming, dogs barking, and youngsters partying.
This is our last week. The trek home will start soon…still trying to decide whether just to stay here and enjoy this special place or to leave early enough to explore some places on the way home.
With our current state of mind, we will probably do like the sunbathers above and just stay here.
