DAY #132

It looks like March is coming in like a lamb here in the Everglades National Park.  Sunny skies, moderate humidity, cooling breezes, and temperatures in the low 80s.  Maybe I should take out the the lounge chair and soak up some of this tropical weather, OK, on second thought, maybe not such a good idea.

Waking up in a trailer with 85-degree temperatures, high humidity, and the sun beating down on your trailer is not the greatest way to start the day, it’s like being in an ‘easy bake’ oven.  You don’ wake up feeling refreshed, you wake up in stifling heat, groggy and in a heat induced stupor.  I know that sometimes I may purposefully try and get to that state, but it’s not an ideal way to start the day.

Burn Update:  The right foot where the skin has peeled away is looking downright icky.  I’ll applied some Neosporin and covered with gauze.  Then I covered that with white ankle socks I bought yesterday at Walmart.  After that, I put my slippers on and there wasn’t any pain, and only minor discomfort.  I thought, let’s see how this works out.

The agenda today wasn’t going to include much.  I went into Florida City and got some more photos to update previous blog postings, and then stopped at the park entrance and got caught up on the blog postings.  While in the ‘City,’ got out of the truck a few times and walked short distances to take photos and the foot seemed to hold up.  Still, I don’t think I’m ready for anything other than the slippers, and they’re temporary use at best.

Adding to my sorry looking state, I was rummaging around the truck looking for something, and man, oh man, look at my hand.  Geez, I hate it when it does that.  It reminds me of old people when I see it, and while I know I’m old, I can somewhat handle that.  It’s looking old and aged that I want nothing to do with.

Stay tuned and see what happens to the old man next, only on “The Journey.”
