Clearwater, Pine Island, Tampa Bay and Fort Meyers
JAN/FEB 2022 RV TRIP DESTINATION KEY WEST
The plans have changed. Instead of arriving in Key West on February 1st, we’ve moved the start date up to January 23rd. Long story….. so we picked a couple of convenient KOA Campgrounds in Clearwater and Pine Island for nights 17 and 18 and made it quite away down the coast putting us near the Everglades.
De Soto National Memorial
Collecting Passport stamps and trying to check out all of the National Parks and Historic sites forces us off the beaten path and into interesting little communities we wouldn’t see from the major highways.
For three years we’ve been talking to the Tampa Bay Swim Spa dealer. Since we were going to be in the neighborhood, we had planned on stopping by the factory to check out their spas. Salesman said “Just look for the giant rubber ducky!)
Call us crazy, but we just drove to Florida and bought a swim spa! (well, put down a deposit anyway.) Hope all goes as planned.
Big Cypress Natural Preserve
No need to worry about the alligators in the swamps, the panthers will get you first! Yes, they actually warn “Panther Crossing”.
