Salt Springs State Park to Ochlockonee State Park

Wednesday, 2/15/12

This was a very difficult navigating day.  As we left the Salt Springs State Park campground, we started out going south on Hwy 19, instead of north so this mistake cost us about 45 minutes.  We finally got to I-75 and stopped for gas at the BP near Gainesville.  The sign out front stated $3.699 per gallon, which is bad enough, but it turned out to be $3.739, because we used our credit card.  We have learned our lesson.  To watch the pumps a little closer!  We decided to stay at the Suwannee River State Park.  As we turned into the entrance, we found the road closed.  The railroad track at the entrance was being taken out so after we researched the alternate route, it would have taken about 45 minutes to get into the park so we decided to drive on to Ochlockonee State Park down Hwy 98.  We got there about 4:00 pm ET and grilled chicken for dinner.  Ed called Dylan to wish him a happy birthday.  The good thing that happened today is that we decided to check to see if there were any openings at Grayton Beach and YES there were.  Thursday through Sunday.  Woohooo.  We are headed there tomorrow!  We don't care if the weather looks like rain.  Grayton Beach is "home".  Rain means a trip to the outlets and dinner at the Red Bar.  Again, woohooo!!
