Travel dates :: Jan 23 – 28, 2016
After leaving O’Leno State Park we headed north and west to the Florida panhandle. We were really looking forward to this area of Florida. We heard the beaches were amazing and we couldn’t wait to check them out. Our first stop was St. Andrews State Park where we had a two-night reservation in spot 104. This spot was AWESOME – right on the end of a row, it was huge and shared one side with a lot of shrubbery – so it felt nice and private.
It also had access to the lagoon (read: muddy shoreline) which the kids really loved. They had a lot of rain before we got there so it was muddier than normal. But the kids loved that. They had fun picking out the deer footprints in the sand. We saw a lot of deer while we were here!
And the kids spent a lot of time RUNNING around our campsite. It was big enough that I didn’t have to worry about them bothering other campers. I like it when this happens (and I think the kids do, too).
The first night we were at St. Andrews, the Bareneckers graciously had us over for dinner! We always love hanging out with the Bareneckers and their four adorable kids – and they always seem to have a delicious meal to share – we are so grateful for them and we had a great night hanging out with them.
