Near the end of our time on Amelia Island, we were watching the weather forecast of rain for Savannah and Charleston, our next two destinations. We managed to find an opening back at Flagler Beach, where the forecast looked great. We delayed going to Savannah and canceled Charleston. We had been to Charleston twice in the past few years and we really weren’t looking forward to the stressful driving in the area or finding parking for our HD truck.
We spent one night at the Rodman recreation area. It was a weekend and there were many large groups of campers, including people fishing. The reservoir is well-known for its trophy largemouth bass. We had a nice site away from where large groups were gathering. It was a great place to be for a day, before our site at Gamble Rogers was available.
It was a great feeling to be back at Flagler Beach, when we expected it to be a year before returning. We had a few more days in our favorite Florida locations.
On our last full day at Flagler Beach, we got to see Palmer, the loggerhead turtle, being released after several months in the turtle hospital. He has 4 transmitters attached and we have been following his progress on his way north. (https://conserveturtles.org/sea-turtle-tracking-active…/)
What a great finale to our stay there!
