Trail of Lakes, Sort of

8.61 miles; Bristol, FL You know that post where I had an encounter with a snake earlier? Well, consider that hike a dress rehearsal for this hike, only 100% less life-threatening.

The Celery Fields

1.21 miles; Sarasota, FL As part of my roadtrip to visit friends in other parts of Florida I made a visit to a lovely Audubon property called The Celery Fields. Which it was, once, apparently.

Cape San Blas Beach Walk with Company

4.45 miles; Port St. Joe, FL Some friends came down to Florida to stay with us, and this morning we went for a long beach walk. So interesting! There was a big storm last night, and lots of stuff washed up on the beach, including tons of jellyfish and something called “sea pork.” My friend […]
