Back on the Suwannee

Along the banks of the Suwannee River, Suwannee River Rendezvous Resort, Mayo, FL – Feb/Mar 2017

After yesterday’s 190 mile drive due south from Perry, Georgia, we find ourselves again in Florida, along the Suwannee River.  We’d travelled and stayed not terribly far from here during our 2015 RV adventures so the landscape seems familiar.

However, temperatures in the mid-80’s at the end of February isn’t familiar and has required the wearing of shorts.  Global warming and man’s role in it is certainly not fake news. We need a strong EPA and not more military and stupid walls!

Maggie has suddenly become afraid of traveling.  For most of the drive yesterday she was in a high state of anxiety pacing in the back seat area of the truck, sometimes trying to climb up front with us. Luckily we have a pet barrier between the two front bucket seats that make it very difficult for her to get to us. She exhibited this type of behavior once last year when we were in Texas and then seemed to mostly get over it. If she doesn’t get better this time I don’t know what we’ll do. It makes it very stressful for all of us.

In a couple of weeks we’ll head south again to Cedar Key, Florida, along the Gulf of Mexico. I look forward to good seafood.

    Looks very peaceful there, despite the abnormal temps.

    If we could only read our dogs minds… what amazing stories would be in there?

      Hi Mark! Yes we’re at a nice park and it’s very peaceful. We’ve learned we like the more rural parks with large spaces and good connections. It also needs to have a decent area for walking Maggie…intended as such or not. I’ve gotten pretty good at finding paths and hidden back roads around parks. The other “normal” park amenities such as the pool, bathhouse, laundry, etc. don’t mean much to us as we seldom use them. I wish I could understand Maggie’s mind. She’s certainly had her scary pants on lately, for no reason that apparent to us.

    That is a beautiful scene and inviting to me. We still have the feel of winter here. Wow, there is nothing more frustrating than not being able to understand someones issues such as pets or young children who are incapable of communicating. Don’t suppose she wants to head in another direction. 🙂

      To be honest, Monte, we’ve got no idea what Maggie’s problem has been lately but we hope it self corrects as it’s becoming an issue with our travels.
