Day 17 and 18

Day 17
Sebring, FL to Fontainebleau State Park, Louisiana.
Wow Florida is a long state. It took us for ever to get out of it. I was so happy when we crossed over into Alabama that I yelled "we're in Alabama!" which started Hunter awake, oops :) The neat part about driving through Alabama was going under Mobile. Yes I said under, we drove in a tunnel that goes under part of Mobile. I also saw an alligator swimming in Mobile Bay. It didn't take us long to get through Alabama and Mississippi. We saw a sign in Mississippi that said it was 100 degrees, it was 6:45 at night! We stayed at Fontainebleau State Park in Louisiana. The park is on Lake Pontchartrain and across the way we could see New Orleans.

Day 18
Louisiana to Eisenhower State Park, TX
At 6:00 this morning it was already 80 degrees. I wouldn't mind coming back to Louisiana but I think winter would be a better time to go. Louisiana and the Northeast part of Texas is pretty not what I expected. Especially Texas it was green with many trees. Oh it was hot! We stayed at Eisenhower State Park. The main road to the park was closed because it was washed out during thee floods a few months ago. So we had to take Lil Old Road, which was a little old road. The park was huge ,190 site, but there was probably only a dozen people there. I think it was because of the flooding the boat launch, fishing area, and yacht club were all closed. We found a nice site with power, air conditioning was a must.

This is the turtle we saw crossing Lil Old Road.
Next stop Goodland, Kansas.
