Moderators SeaDawg Posted January 3, 2010 Moderators Share Posted January 3, 2010 No, I'm not touting my adopted state. Yesterday, we spent the day at Forever Florida near St. Cloud. This 4700 acre area, dedicated to Allen Broussard by his parents, hopes to preserve at least within its confines the spirit and ecosystem of pioneer Florida. What a great day. The young people ziplined through the woods, getting an ecotour on the way to the course in a giant swamp buggy. We parents enjoyed a two hour tour in a similar coach, visiting sloughs, creeks, regenerated prairie, cedar domes, and pine forest. We saw allligators, deer, and turkeys, along with a number of other birds. Though we didn't get to see a rare Florida panther, we did see his tracks in the sand. Part of the acreage is a working farm, with a large herd of Florida cracker cattle, direct descendants of the cattle left behind by the Spaniards when they were attacked by the Calusa Indians. Forever Florida includes two big campgrounds, with no hookups but flush toilets and hot showers. We'd love to go back and camp with some of our friends. http://www.foreverflorida.com/ Sherry 2008 Ram 1500 4 × 4 2008 Oliver Elite, Hull #12 Florida and Western North Carolina, or wherever the truck goes.... 400 watts solar.
