Corbitt is kewl on a paddleboat....
It is swamped by now I am sure...John and I rode it a while back and that was the dry time??
I swamped Paula's DR, when I tried to teach it the backstroke.... fortunately is was ok, but Picayune sounds kewl as today we rode by some other roads worthy of an exploration...
Had a few sprinkles on the way home but nothing bad. I know you want to keep that, very nice, bike clean..

Everglades City

We rode out the ever challenging and stunningly visual Tamiami Trail to Everglades City and had lunch at City Seafood.





I didn't get any food pics since I ate mine so quick I barely remember eating it.

The usual suspects:





There was a heron that lunches there everyday.



Oscar had fun with the pin art.




Hi!



We stopped at Clyde Butcher's gallery on the way home to check out his awesome photography and get some air conditioning.





My lame attempt to duplicate Butcher's work.







We had a good time and got to meet some new faces this weekend.
Luckily the rain was kept at bay till most of us got home.

I think we get it...........

I was looking into street rides which seem to be so boring around here but here are two I thought might be nice has anyone been to these lately:
http://www.morikami.org/
http://www.nature.org/wherewework/no...s/art5522.html

Seems we could find something to eat around those locations........to or from sometime........
Everyone needs to keep looking if you know of something that is do-able in a day--- post it......

If we do off road then I'm on for exploring the squares some more sometime......

This is near Corbett and one of my favorite BBQ places, Red's.

A boardwalk with lots of nice swamp views (like we don't see enough of that.)

Depending on how roundabout you feel like getting there, could be dirt or pavement.

Could be nice! Just keep an eye peeled on the weather for Sat....'They' are talking about a depression with rain. Too early to tell what's going on though..

Camping Anyone????

Looks like I have 3 weeks before school starts and would love to do that ride/camp/tubing trip to Ichetucknee.

http://www.floridastateparks.org/ich...gs/default.cfm

Is anyone interested? I figure it is probably a 4 day event....1 day ride to High Springs.......just north of Gainesville.....1 day tubing.....1 day exploring and relaxing....1 day ride back........
Another opportunity to try out our camping gear and set-ups.......

chit-chat
