OK, so my sparkfriend Brooklyn_born wrote a blog about attention grabbing headlines and how the goal is to reel readers in, regardless of connection to content.
I got a chuckle out of her blog. So here is mine. Did it work for you?
Thanks for reading and have a great day.

St Andrews CG
Me, Barney and Bitsy at the lake at Camel Lake. Yes, we got caught not having the dogs on a leash. We were the only campers there, so I took a chance.
DW Chris at Camel Lake
Lighthouse at St Marks Wildlife Refuge. We had so much fun here. People boating, crabbing, and generally having a good time. Weather was perfect.
I didn't run on this trail, but it is a good representation of the trails I did run on. Or is that trails on which I ran? I like to use correct grammar, but I fall short. :) Oh, yeah, this was really fun, but it hurt my knees.
Some handsome guy posing so that you can see his RV in the background.
Pelicans begging for scraps at the fish cleaning station. I think this was St Andrews CG
My gorgeous DW on a walking trail at ST Marks Wildlife Refuge
Falling Waters SP. See...I wear my running shirts!
Okay, I'm losing track of what I posted and what I didn't post. So, this will be it. Thanks for all the nice comments and requests for more pictures.
I had a very hard time with AT&T internet connections. I tried many times to blog, and just could not get a connection. But be sure, I was thinking of my Spark Friends. I got some running in, watched what I ate for the most part, but I couldn't resist a few beers and hot dogs. I weighed myself when I got home. I know, I am obsessive, but surprisingly, I did not gain any weight! My funky, change weight from one minute to the next scale said I was okay on the two times I weighed in. Woohoo! Must have been all the extra walking we did.
I would not have posted so many pictures, but a few people asked for more. Probably they were just being nice, but I am a very literal person, if you ask for something, I will try to comply.
Thanks for enjoying my trip with me and have a great day.

I have lots of pictures, but will only post a few. I didn't remember to take a picture of the forest trail than I ran on. I did 2.5 miles running on soft sand and ruts. Kind of fun, but my knees didn't like it.
St Andrews State Park
This was taken at Buckhorn campsite, where we roughed it. No power or water or any hookups. The little RV is self-contained, so we had everything we needed. DW doesn't care for this type of camping, being out in the forest all alone. But, I love it, so we compromise. :)
Random shot of the National Forest paved road.
Fort Pickens Campground site
Chris, Barney and Bitsy at St Marks Wildlife Refuge. The lily pads behind them are in bloom, and gorgeous. The picture is too small to see that.

Left home on Wednesday the 17th. We are working our way north on the west coast of FL heading to the gulf coast.
We stayed 2 days at Manatee State Park.
On to St Georges Island State Park for one night
Beautiful white sand beach. I ran 4 miles on this beach, even though I didn't have my running shorts on. It was really cool, so I ran in jeans.
Our campsite was very secluded - nice and private.
Next day, we went to St Josephs Peninsula State Park, where we stayed for one night.
This campsite was open and visible to all the other campers. Nice neighbors made it very enjoyable.
Another white sandy beach, where we met this fisherman. He reeled in a good sized whiting while we talked. DW and I walked quite a ways on this beach then over to another campsite and back to ours. It felt like about 4 miles. Good exercise and wonderful scenery.
There was a boardwalk which crossed the swamp area, with lots of vegetation and plenty of sawgrass. The white dunes were visible farther away.
Right now we are parked in a Walmart lot and having a couple of slices of Papa John's Pizza for lunch. There is wifi available here, so I thought I'd post some pictures of our trip.
We stopped here because my battery went bad last night. I had been having some trouble with it, but confirmed it was sot this morning, when I checked it and it only showed 10.7 volts. Walmart gave me a pro-rated credit on the new battery, so I got about 55 dollars off the price on the new one.
After I post this blog, we're heading to St Andrews State Park CG for 2 nights, then on to Fort Pickens CG in Gulf Breeze, FL.
Will play it by ear after that, but I tentatively plan to spend some time in Apalachicola Nat'l Forest and Osceola Nat'l Forest as well.
It stinks that I pay every month for 3g connectivity on my iPhone, but seldom can get a signal when camped. Glad I found this wifi spot.
Will try and send some more info and pictures later this week.
Thanks for reading and have a great day.
