1.      Tuesday, February 25 -  We left Falling Waters State Park around 9:30 in the morning.  The other couple John and Tyra asked if they could follow us for the next few campsites.  We told them that we had reservations but it was fine with us.  They left before us.  When we arrived at Grayton Beach State Park the ranger told us they had one more site and right after we drove in John and Tyra came in and took the last spot.  We were in two different loops but it was good to see them again. 

    Our site was not ready for us so we drove over to the beach and ate our lunch.  It had been raining here for four days so some sites were under water and the ocean was roaring and a lot of the beach was under water.  It was beautiful!  We even had a Pelican walk by us but we could not tell if he was hurt or not.  Grayton Beach has one mile of sugar white beaches located on the Gulf of Mexico.  It has been ranked as one of the most beautiful beaches in the country.  Our site was hidden by trees, plants, sand and an inlet and nature trail right behind it.

    We met John and Tyra again and also two women from MA and got a tour of their View.  They had been at a rally and were getting ready to head home to MA.  There are so many staying here from all over the US even through there are only 67 sites situated in two loops.  Tomorrow we will be headed for Henderson Beach State Park but we are going to ride our bikes into Seaside in the morning then head out about noon.  

Tuesday, February 25 – Grayton Beach State Park, Santa Rosa, FL   This campground is one of our favorites with a beautiful beach and rolling dunes covered with golden sea oats and sugar sand beaches.  There are two loops in the park with a total of about 67 sites, a newer one with full hookups and bathhouse and a smaller loop with a bathhouse that is being updated.  One can swim, fish, boat, hike and bike at this park.  There are bike trails along 30A that go into Seaside which is an adorable little town.  We stayed in the smaller loop and really enjoyed it.  This park has 2000 acres.  The cost was around $24 for just water and electricity.
