We were in what they call the real Florida. Nothing out there but the cows.

Bill and Elaine met us and took us through the state park. They both rode the 1976 bicentennial ride and led groups. Bill says there were about 4000 riders that did it.

We are checking out the front porch. All are screened in and breezy. Very nice this time of year.
