Quick Trip to Florida

One of the perks of operating Carlton Gardens is an opportunity now and then to make a delivery---this time to Florida, payment enough for the cost of gas and more. Couldn't pass it up. We left at 3 pm Saturday when we closed shop, spent a short night in Kentucky, and then did some leisurely driving through the back roads of Tennessee and on to Chattanooga, and particularly enjoyed our drive up Lookout Mountain. Our first 3 Florida nights were in a nice cabin (as the photos show) at the Suwannee River State Park, where we did a lot of hiking along trails and boardwalks over sinkholes. Today we drove south 3 hours to Dover, near Tampa where we delivered our Great Blue Herons and set them up in front of Sheila's beautiful pond.
