DAY #88

Last full day at Colt Creek State Park. I’m finding that three days isn’t long enough at a stop, at least for me. I’m just getting revved up to get out and about and pow, it’s time to hit the road again. I think my laid back pace might have gotten tuned down a little too far. I need to turn it up and be more active next stop.

I did go into Dade City and do laundry. The laundromat was old and dingy. From its water stained, rotting drop down ceiling, to its faded linoleum floors. The washers and dryers were past their prime about ten years ago. The owner, who I got change from, looked about as vibrant and healthy as his business. In the end, I didn’t have to jockey for a washer or dryer and the clothes did appear to be clean.

Another remnant of a by-gone era.

Coming back from doing the laundry, I perused the park. The spread used to be owned by two brothers who raised cattle and cut timber on the land. They also did some mining for limestone resulting in a couple of large pits which today look amazingly natural, not man made.

At one time this was a man made big hole in the ground.

Lets take a drive down the park roads.
