The Two RV Gypsies & their grandson

June 22, 2011
The two RV Gypsies drove a short distance from Wesley Chapel Florida to White Springs, Florida and stayed at Suwannee Valley Campground (sites were 30 amp service only). They set up the RV quickly, then took a canoe out on the Suwannee River. The water level was very low due to the drought in Florida so the river was blocked after just a short distance in each direction from where they put the canoe in the river. It was very hot and humid. So then they went to the pool, had a BBQ, and then watched home videos - mostly of their grandson Alex, and they laughed a lot at the old movies and how small Alex was then.
 
A brief walk from the campground office to where the canoe was launched. Alex is seen below hand-cranking the canoe down towards the Suwannee River.

Alex and Lee paddled, Karen sat in the middle of the canoe - not that comfortably.

Since the water level was so low on the Suwannee River, time was spent exploring the big slopes of the Suwannee River.

Before getting back in the canoe, Lee had to hand shovel some of the water out of the canoe since the canoe had a leak.

Lee saw a log that looked like a porcupine. Back at the campground, hooking up the canoe to the ramp. It was hard work cranking the canoe upwards.
