2,000 Miles to Paradise

It’s yet another blustery day, and I can’t help but reminisce about sunshine, sand, and sultry weather. Last winter took me over 4,000 miles to the Florida Keys and back. Minnesota was in the midst of days on end below zero, and Key West boasted a consistent high around 80 degrees. It’s got me thinking where this winter will take me. Where will you be going?

Beach-side camping is an option in many of Florida’s state parks in the Keys. The view from your tent can’t be beat.

On the way home through the Everglades I was treated to copious amounts of crocodile sightings.
