San Marcos de Apalache Historic State Park

What a wonderful, glorious week we had in Tallahassee!

It was to hot to do much outside so Sonsearae, Jim and I went to the movies and saw Rio. If any of you play Angry Birds this movie is part of it. The movie was a riot and we all laughed a lot!

Chris was out of town all week and arrived home Friday afternoon. Sonsearae prepared dinner for all of us, Vegan Paella that was very tasty! She fixed some chicken for the menfolk.

On Saturday morning while Sonsearae worked Chris took us to the shooting range so we could get some practice with our hand guns. I'm still learning and not very good but practicing should help!

Saturday evening we had a family gathering at Christy's home. She is Jim's daughter and along with her husband Rick and children Callie and Jack we were joined by Jim's son William. So we had our three children together for the first time in a long while. A lot of good food was served and I think everyone had a good time. I know Jim did.

Sunday morning Sonsearae took us to San Marcos de Apalache Historic State Park. Small park with the remnants of the original fort at the confluence of the Wakulla and St Marks Rivers. A short film explained the history which started in 1528 with the Spanish and was used by various nations until the Civil War.



the grounds are pretty

In the south you always have Spanish Moss...not sure why they call it that!

Beautiful!

We sat and watched the rivers slide by

When we arrived back at Sonsearae's place, Chris was cooking our spaghetti dinner! It sure smelled good and tasted even better. Sonsearae had prepped everything and the guys had meatballs while we ladies had plain sauce. A Cesar salad with vegan dressing and homemade croutons accompanied the meal.

We left early because we wanted them to have some time together. Sonsearae flew out this morning for a graduation in Delaware. Since she flew out of Panama City they had to get up at zero dark thirty and I know they needed some sleep. We went home with a bag full of food because they emptied the fridge into it!

Back home Jim did some chores getting us packed up for our trip today. We got a late start and still managed to arrive before the 1500 check-in time here at Low Key Hideaway.
