August 30th is here, and…

…and it’s National Beach Day! Happy to say that I’m heading out in a few hours to get in on the party! If you’re anywhere near the coast–any coast–I hope you’ll get some sand in your shoes today. That’s my plan exactly! Just threw… Continue Reading “August 30th is here, and…”

Two Nights at Jetty Park

Because of work commitments, our vacations are generally of the weekend variety. Which may or may not actually fall on a weekend, by the way. In our most recent getaway, we had occasion to camp for two nights at Jetty Park in Cape Canaveral.… Continue Reading “Two Nights at Jetty Park”

It’s Only Three Weeks

It’s only three weeks until we set out on another camping adventure. This time it will be Jetty Park in Cape Canaveral, Florida. The park that’s well-known for — among other things — being very, very close to where the Cruise Ships launch in… Continue Reading “It’s Only Three Weeks”

I came across a story on Wednesday about a Florida man who had just been arrested for the crime of littering. Felony littering, that is. Our Department of Environmental Protection was on the case. As with any crime, any bad act, sometimes the offender… Continue Reading “Not Littering but Environmental Crime”

We Could Bearly Stand It!

Joan and I have annual passes for the Brevard Zoo. We really like being supporters and go when we can. We never fail to stop by and see their resident Black Bear, Cheyenne. An orphaned cub, she was adopted at about four months as… Continue Reading “We Could Bearly Stand It!”

Deer and Springs at Kelly Park

We had occasion to camp at Kelly Park in Orange County (Florida) not very long ago and had a terrific time. We were stunned at how tame the deer were. They came around–and in considerable numbers–every evening and night. Having said that, I must… Continue Reading “Deer and Springs at Kelly Park”
