Eric & I Drive Northwest to Palatka, Florida

.....turning left onto

Driving on an overcast day is easy on the driver's eyes.

Just 175 miles to Daytona Beach

Palm Trees line the

This section of highway
has a 70 mile per
hour speed limit.

RANGER truck provides
free road service to
motorists in need.

Up the road, we see the
truck pulled over to aid
a stranded motorist.

Eric & I stop at a Flying J
for diesel fuel & propane

Eric and I swap seats and I start driving.

My two hours of highway
driving are easy during
non-commute hours.

Eric takes photos for the next 140 miles.

Palm Bay's sign is a
stand out.

Eric & I are concerned
about this fire.

He finds a website that lists fires in Florida.  This is an active, controlled burn.  We are glad some one knows about it and is keeping watch over the flames.

 Eric did a great job composing this photo.

Here's our exit...
Ormond Beach/Ocala

We have an easy
drive west.

This section of road is shared
with horseback riders.

is hosting the Dirt Car 

This farm tractor moves
slowly down the road,
from one field to another.

Eric doesn't like this sign.

It's a warning sign for
Black Bears that looks
like a Groundhog.

State Road 40 West is
an Evacuation Route.

Florida is pretty flat and people can drive for many miles to safety to escape hurricanes.

We turn onto State Road
19 North, another
Scenic Highway. 

This section of Florida 
has low, rolling hills.

This is the Black Bear
sign that Eric prefers.

It looks like a Bear.

Road work....

The trunks of these trees
have been charred during
a previous burn, probably
a controlled burn.

Eric & I return to Marjorie Harris

Eric & I are staying at 
site 56 for two weeks.

We have water and electric services here.  Parked close to the campground road, we have DirecTV satellite access.  Our previous stay was at site 68, which is tree covered, without television access. Cell coverage is OK, not great.  Our internet access is steady, more reliable than our cell coverage.
