‘No act of kindness is, no matter how small, ever wasted.’ Aesop
This last weeks adventure took us all over southern Florida. We had some more nature trails in the Everglades where we saw tons of alligators, turtles, a snake and lots of birds….bit like the lions, tigers and bears from the Wizard of Oz.
We, then, drove down the Keyes, which is Spanish for island. Can’t say I liked the drive, not nearly as scenic as we had heard and very long.
We did like Key West,
it has its own character and flavour. I would just recommend you fly or cruise rather than drive.
If you do your homework on the Keyes, there are nice places, but most of it is over crowded and kitsch when driving the only 2 lane highway. Plus there is a lot of traffic on said highway at any time of the day.
We, then, started to take a few days to drive back up the coast to meet up with my Mom, Dad, Mickey (our parents pet cat) and Mojo (the RV). 1 night we had a lovely stay on Hutchinson Island, just north of Miami.
It was lovely and quiet with a beautiful beach area and friendly restaurants.
We rejoined with Mom and Dad at another of the Thousand Trails campgrounds, but this one is very close to Disney World, but John and I have agreed we aren’t going to any major theme parks.
So part of our ‘other’ discoveries in Florida has been Bok Tower a beautiful garden near Orlando.
It was created by a Dutch/American who was a philanthropist. There is a beautiful tower in the centre which has live concerts played daily there.
Lovely quote I read there which is a great motto for life, “Make you the world a bit better or more beautiful because you have lived in it.”
What are some quotes that you love?
