Our time in Florida is almost halfway through!
We still have places we want to see, and things we want to do,
so it was time to get off our butts :-)
Not too far from here, about 33 miles, is the Lake Eaton sinkhole.
There is a trail that goes to an observation platform to see it.
It was a pretty easy hike to get to the sinkhole itself.
There were 188 steps down to get to it!
I'm not sure what I was expecting.
In my mind, a sinkhole looked like a huge hole with some vegetation :-)
Yup, that's what this was..
It was hard to tell how deep it was, as it was grown up with trees.
Still the hike was nice :-)
We also did the Lake Eaton Loop trail.
It looped around part of the lake, and it was nice.
There weren't a lot of birds to see,
not even a mosquito!
We could see the controlled burn across the lake.
There are fires in the forest almost every day,
done by the fire center.
We hiked a total of 2.57 miles, not a lot,
but we're trying to get conditioned for Amazon.
We treated ourselves to a Bruster's ice cream cone afterwards.
No Jamaica-me-Crazy, Sherry! :-(
