4 days, 3 nights, and 15 mosquito bites…

Welcome to camping in the Everglades! Ask me if it is worth it and I will tell of my first night falling asleep to the sound of insects and waking up to the calls of birds! Finally, no traffic noise, no loud music, almost 3 months in and I had the camping I had been craving all trip!

My first day in Everglades National Park was pretty magical as well, and best described by a call I made home…hello mom and dad, “so I can’t feel my left arm, got a slight sunburn, bug bites, am completely exhausted and ABSOLUTELY loved it! – I kayaked for four hours, over 10+ miles down a canal, into a windy lake, through overgrown pass-through (had to duck under trees – the true Everglades) and made it to Mud Lake! Had a blast, just wanted to share my crazy day.”

I built campfires from wood I collected and used a couple of logs asimage well, I practiced my harmonica by the light of the fire until the bugs would cause my retreat into my tent were I would devour books on kindle in the night while serenaded by the flutter and ticking of natures own rhythm. I copied down Amazons list of 100 books to read in your lifetime and the first completed off that list “Born to Run” a  great read! And now onto a mystery/thriller not on the list and a little Hemingway to prepare for the Key West visit to Hemingway’s house! Which will be fun as last summer I went to his house in Cuba.
