Day 428 Life on the Road as a Family

Today is a short windshield day, driving from one spectacular beach to the next – Henderson Beach State Park . Hard to leave the beauty of the peninsula , but so nice to see new areas . We love being on the road again !

IMG_5365 I’ve said it before , but have to say it again – it’s surprising to see so many pine trees here . We passed a huge mill still in operation and much of the history they had on display in the Port St Joe library was about the lumber industry . Beautiful old photos from the 1930’s. My favorite painting there was of the salt works being attacked by the Union army during the civil war . The Union was trying to ruin their food supplies . A man that was there drew a picture , then another man later painted it . The salt works were huge ! Much bigger than the cairn style that Lewis & Clark used near Astoria that winter . The traffic was bad thru the little towns , so this stretch is a nice relief . We’ve already been passed three times on the right , when they were in a right hand only turn lane . Florida drivers are the worst ! Then they gun it to get to the next stop light and slam on their brakes when they get there . We’re the turtle to their hare. Happy Sunday from the Panhandle !
