Today is day 53 of the trip titled Follow Lewis and Clark.

I drove 145 miles today, for a total of 5886 miles so far.

I started the day at mease. I ended the day at Manatee Springs State Park.

Here is a short description of the day:
Much more interesting and pleasant drive getting away.
Coast highway past Tarpon Springs, then suburban sprawl for too long, then nice highway through the piney woods and cypress swamps.
Here is a short description of the evening:

I thank the camping gods for there being a place available for me at this blessed place at 5 pm on a Friday.

My spot was near the path to the picnic area and spring, overlooking the Catfish Hole.

The Hole was quite busy with scuba-ers on Saturday morning

Story for today: Missouri calls it a Spring, Florida calls it a Springs.
