DAY #113

Last full day at Fisheating Creek Campground, and I could easily have stayed longer. While the campground didn’t stand out (good or bad), it was a nice base from which to explore the area, plus being comfortable enough to just hang out and do nothing. I liked that everything worked and that it was quiet, even when the campground was full. It was a bit of a drive to get anywhere, but that’s one of the quirky things that for me, made for a memorable experience.

Overall, I enjoyed the area. It’s different than other areas visited so far in the ‘Sunshine State’. Gone were the beaches, replaced by sugar cane fields. Gone were the forests, replaced by groves of oranges. Gone were the meandering & scenic rivers, replaced by razor straight man-made canals. Gone were the waters of the gulf, replaced by the waters of Lake Okeechobee. Gone were the retirees living in new & improved communities, replaced by migrant workers living in dirty, dingy mobile homes.

I’ve really been spoiled by having had water, electric, and sewer at this campground, something that I’m really, really, going to miss at the next couple of sites.

I’m glad I had the opportunity to spend time in this area. I would come back.
