Eden State Park

Eden State Park is always a stop we have to make. We feel in love with it the first time we visited. The property used to belong to a timber family and they donated it to the state of Florida. (For more history, see last year's post). The huge live oaks dripping with Spanish Moss, a magnificent collection of camellias and ferns are just a few features on this spectacular property. It is a sure-fire way to lower the blood pressure.

  2. When I retire, I hope to get another camper and continue visiting the state parks I missed the first go around. Very pretty. Thanks for posting. I started working two jobs the camper was sitting there, so I sold it. Mary

  3. A lovely park and your vacation home rocked! I don't blame you for not cooking on vacation. It wouldn't be one then.
