Curry Hammock

Let me just say I am really loving the FL State Parks!

Today we went to Sombrero Beach and then checked in early at Curry Hammock. It is a really small park with only 28 campsites, but they are perfectly groomed and well maintained.

And the park is beautiful!

Private beaches with actual sugar white sand, not finely crushed shells or rocks. The kids love it! The water is warm, Mr. T says its too warm, lol. The bathrooms are clean and the toilets are composting pit toilets (haven’t seen those since our CT days) which amuse the kids.

Sunshine Key RV Resort

If you are desperate to stay in the Keys and everything else is booked, stay here. If you have options open to you, don’t waste your money here. We needed a place to stay between state parks so we booked a “resort” thinking it would have the amenities on their website (clubhouse, game room, restaraunt, laundry,wifi, etc). Everything was under renovation. And no wifi. Actually, they had 5 channels of wifi but it wouldn’t connect. ATT 3G on my phone worked fine. Thank goodness for huge data plans.

The rigs are packed in like sardines. They do have full hookups but water pressure is very weak. It is an Encore park so our Thousand Trails membership knocked $20 off the daily rate. But still not worth the price.

The “beach” is actually a rocky coastline. But with so many people around it was really just a parking lot.

Morning at Bahia Honda

Good Morning! BEST. SPOT. EVER!

I got up early to watch the sunrise from our site. There is a marathon today and people are honking and shaking cow bells as they cross the bridge behind us.

The kids find exploring way more interesting than breakfast. Its a whole different experience than last night. Mr. S found lots of hermit crabs and Divagirl started collecting them on a piece of coral. He also caught a little fish with his hands. I wish we could spend more days here. But its off to find a way to get to Key West and have some key lime pie :)

Bahia Honda

We got a bit of a late start and underestimated our travel time which took us from Sebring, FL to Bahia (pronounced BAY-uh) Honda State Park in about 7 hours. Ugh, I had planned for 4. At least I did think to call ahead since arriving late at our last state park (ranger station closes at 5pm) and the ranger was so friendly and helpful and gave us the key code and directions to find our site. Our only little snafu was that we have 20′ of cable and 20′ of hose, but the electrical hookup was in the far back of the site and the water hookup was at the far front of the site. They both wouldn’t reach so we chose power over water.

A/C wins every time :)
