Suwannee River 11-23-08

Suwaname, an Indian name meaning black or dark muddy water. The Suwannee drains the Okefenokee Swamp in Georgia into the Gulf of Mexico. The river wanders for 250 miles. The campground is located at the confluence of the Suwanne and Withlacoochee Rivers. This location was an important ferry and railroad crossing during the Civil War.The many trails through the campground are self guided with handouts from the Rangers. The total distance is about 5 miles and the grades are leisure. Sylvia and I walked all the trails Saturday. We had no trouble sleeping last night.
Today we relaxed and enjoyed the warm weather with temperatures in the 70's. We did drive into Live Oak to gas-up the car. Gas is $1.92 here with Diesel at $2.78. Some change from last summer!.
This afternoon I washed the windshield and the other windows in preparation of tomorrow's move. We move to Jacksonville, Fl. to Kathryn Abby Hanna Park. We will be there for the week. Plans beyond that are uncertain.
