Kingsley Plantation

We visited the Kingsley Plantation outside of Jacksonville, Florida (a national park) and took the audio tour of the property. It is a very interesting story in history; a little different than what we think of the history books. A humbling experience to see how the slave life was when Florida was owned by the Spanish and later when Florida became a United States Territory.

Here is a link to a brief overview

After visiting the plantation, we went to the Sandollar Restaurant for a drink and snack before taking the St. John’s River Ferry over the river.

A fun and educational day.

East Coast of Florida

This week, we traveled 300 miles East to Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in Jacksonville, FL. Tucked into the jungle. Site 58 with full hookups for $30/day. The park is on a freshwater lake and the Pasific Ocean.

The foliage is thick and there are alligators! Lots to do – click here for a map

Tuesday, we rode our bikes 8 miles on the Beach; it is huge and very long. Going north, we ran into a military “Do Not Enter” sign, so we turned around.

Florida Panhandle – Again

On Tuesday, we arrived back at RV on 30E in the Panhandle of Florida. This is the same RV lot we stayed at in early 2021 just outside of Port St. Joe.

The beach is fantastic with soft white sand. The sunsets are great looking out into the Gulf of Mexico.

We rode the eBikes to St. Joe Peninsula State Park on Wednesday; nice simple park with a beach and warnings to watch for Alligators.
