Highlands Hammock State Park, Sebring FL

Well, we went for the Florida Flywheeler's annual show in the Ft. Meade/Avon Park, FL area (we go every year) but this year we brought the teardrop and camped nearby at Highlands Hammock State Park in Sebring.  Perfect weather this weekend (February) with 60s at night and 80s during the day!

And it was the first time out with the 1951 Chevy pickup towing the teardrop!  Oh my!  What a crowd we had at the site AND along the highway!  We even had people taking our picture driving down I-4.  (Here's an idea of what we looked like!)

We met SO many lovely campers - especially Friedrich & Lisbeth from Ontario.  They were in the next site and just couldn't get over how many people stopped by!  (They're pretty experienced campers and were able to give us some great camping tips.  We plan to take the truck & teardrop out west next year and appreciated the pointers!)

The park was quite nice, well located.  We had dinner one night at Cody's nearby and it was yummy!  (Recommend!)

The tractor show had a huge crowd and it was hot, hot, hot!  (Molly (dog) & I were wilting before the day was over.)

Then, Saturday night the Park had a live concert - group called "Toe Jam" and they were quite good!  What a nice (unexpected) treat!  I guess they do these concerts there a couple times a year so check their website and book well in advance.

Oh!  One of the tips our "neighbors" gave us was about their Sea Eagle inflatable kayak/canoe and ... I ordered one today!  We were looking into a canoe but really didn't want the hassle of loading & unloading for an occasional float so the Sea Eagle looks perfect for our use.  Can't wait to try it out!

More next time!
