Monday – February 25, 2013
Well the flu bug finally got us. I got hit with it on Monday, February 18. After a couple of bouts of nausea and total fatigue on Tuesday, followed by a coughing spasm on Wednesday, I was finally on the road to recovery on Thursday.
Sharon got hit with the flu bug on Thursday evening, February 21. She obviously contacted it from me as a result of our confined living quarters in the trailer. Fortunately, Sharon did not experience any bouts of nausea and is feeling much better.
We chalked up our speedy recoveries to getting our flu shots back in September 2012. At any rate that’s our story and we’re sticking to it!
There is a 14-day camping limit at National Park campgrounds. After 14 days, campers may stay additional days at the discretion of the Park Ranger. We exceeded the 14-day limit on Wednesday, February 20, 2013, at the Long Pine Key Campground. We have reservations for an electric hookup site for seven nights at the Flamingo Campground starting on Wednesday, February 27, 2013. The Flamingo campground is located 34 miles within the park from our present campground. Since the Long Pine Key campground has never been filled up during our stay, the park ranger has granted us additional days on a day-to-day basis.
The weather here in southern Florida has been exceptional, sunny days with temperatures in the mid-80’s. It feels good to be feeling better so we can enjoy the outdoor lifestyle here.
Tomorrow another adventure begins.
