Yep, that was terrible weather y'all had to ride thru. Reminded me of hurricane squalls. It was beautiful weather after lunch today, though. Ride safe. I enjoy your reports & pics!

Finally the clouds parted and we were treated to a beautiful spring day. This is the beach at our campground at Flagler Beach. The storm cleared but left behind some great waves. I went swimming for the first time this year and got in some great body surfing.

Today we are heading inland to Deland and then to swim in some springs. In Deland we stopped at our favorite donut shop.

Here is a view of our beach last night

Can't get far without eating. Stopped for cafe con Leche and empanadas on the way to the everglades. Holy cow that cafe con Leche was good!

Today we left Miami and drove the loop road through the everglades, 12 miles of dirt roads with lots of animals. After that we drove to Sanibel island to swim and find some shells. Now we are in Venice at Oscar Scherer State park. We left Charleston Saturday and our total mileage is 950. So far I've just been posting snap shots from my cell phone. When I get back in town next Sunday I'll upload the real pics off my camera. Tomorrow we will be heading to Tampa and after that we may be heading back inland to the springs.


All the various shells that can be found at Sanibel island



Nice blue waters of the Gulf.

Here is a rough outline of our route. I'll break it down day by day as I get the pics sorted.

Day one:


We left Charleston under cloudy grey skys. It was not raining yet but the wind was getting nasty. We headed south and the weather got worse and worse. The rain started to come down in buckets and the wind was blowing me all over the road. At one point the wind blew the bike so hard that the back wheel kicked out. After that happened I knew there was no way were going to make it to Jacksonville that night. We pulled off the 17 in Darien Georgia and got a room at the Hampton inn. I drank lots of free coffee and grabbed a geocache across the street from the hotel while we waited out the storm. They were also nice enough to let me park the bike under the awning all night.
