Sugarloaf Key (Day 7)

Wow, hard to believe our week here is coming to an end. We have really enjoyed Key Largo and Key West. We haven't so much enjoyed this KOA. It is spring break and that makes it doubly challenging and makes it doubly crowded. We understand that sometimes we have to come into these types of resorts but we try and minimize the number of times. I suspect that going up the east side of Florida that we will have to use private resorts quite a bit as the very few state parks are booked 11 months in advance!

We had heard that it "might" rain last night. Well, might was right. Actually, it poured and poured!! Doug managed to sneak out early and get a few pictures. I can also tell you that the very large laundry area (which has about 15 washers and 15 dryers was busy pretty much all day long with tenters trying to dry out their gear!!

Remember New Orleans????

 Guess the tenters behind us hit the jackpot when they
picked "just" the right spot for their tent!!

Yes, that mat was floating....again!!

Oh well, we just flung that door open. It was really nice and warm though.
We had coffee and waited for search & rescue to show up!! 
That's it for us. Lazy day. Doug did get our special Mile 0 sticker on Euri. He is EVER so particular about which sticker goes on this vehicle and this one is definitely a special one. Place of love, right above our Mexico flag one!!


See in the reflection in the window that
the sun did actually come out!
Now, we are mostly packed up. We are out tomorrow morning. We will make one little trip back down into Key West for a few important pictures and then we are off. The wind has literally howled all day and now is continuing into the night. Glad we are snug and safe in our friend, Erui!!

  1. Glad to see you didn't float away with all that rain. We actually got less in Miami.
    Make sure Euri gets that special picture you told us about before you start heading north.
    Kathy and I wish you many safe enjoyable travels and keeping our fingers crossed we'll see you down the road somewhere in the future.

    It's about time.

  2. Don't forget that there are a lot of state forests and county parks in the interior of Florida that are very reasonably priced.

    No way would we be staying at "private resorts"!

  3. Out of the mayhem... Into the peace and quiet... Leave the KOAs to the kids.
