Spent part of the day doing errands around Okeechobee, and the rest of the time, doing very little around the campground.
Last day in Kissimmee Preserve. While there hasn’t been a lot of activities or excursions to do around the area, that’s been OK, I’ve felt so comfortable just hanging out. Yea, It’s been a bit of a drive going into Okeechobee but I’m not complaining, I’ve enjoyed my drives around the area.
The weather has remained dry and unseasonably warm, take away the humidity, and it would be perfect.
I’ve enjoyed interacting (really just one sided, with me talking to them) with the deer, turkeys, squirrels, and birds. I’ve grown increasingly fond of the Snowy Egret. You see them everywhere, they’re so expressive in their look that it gives them (at least to me) a personality. They always look so serious. It’s not uncommon to find them hanging out with the cattle in the pastures, they look like two buds just hanging out together.
The time has come to start the journey back, with Kissimmee Preserve being the first stop. From here, each of the subsequent stops will be slowly bringing me closer to home.
The trip down has gone by so quickly, and I’ve been so fortunate that nothing catastrophic has happened. In fact just the opposite, for the most part I’ve had a trouble free ride. Fingers crossed that my luck continues.
In reflecting, I don’t think there’s been anyplace I’ve stayed that I haven’t enjoyed spending the time there. Sure, some places I’ve liked better than others, but they’ve all been memorable (and enjoyable) in their own way.
I’m not sure if I’m ready to head back home.
