Day 371, Bahai Honda State Park, FL

Okay, how many times have I said, “this is my favorite day” on this trip?!  Well, this could be another contender.  We got up early and drove south about 30 miles to get to Bahai Honda State Park early.  Another RV’er was camped there and he said if we didn’t get there early, we might not be able to get in all day.  It is rated very highly and so many people we’ve met have told us to go there, so we did.
