      Thanks Cori. It was really neat how spending time just “being” with my cousin brought back so many childhood memories. Miss you too!!!!!

    Sharon this is a wonderful post, beautifully written. I’ve never been to Lake Griffin State Park, I’m not sure why given all the winters we’ve spent in Florida which we too have found to be a unique and very beautiful place. Your descriptions bring the pictures to my eyes. What fun to be neighbors with a cousin. Happy Trails

      Sherry, thank you! Lake Griffin is a pretty park but it’s appeal was the closeness to my cousin. It has a few campsites that are pull-through in the back section that can accommodate us bigger rigs but everything else was pretty tight.

    We were enamoured by the moss when we drove through that area a few years ago. I love how the sun shines through the moss in the morning!

    Out of curiosity I looked up the temperature in St.Paul the day I was born in ’62. They did not list the exact day but two days before that it was -19 a mere 80 degrees colder than the day you were born!

      Yikes! Now, that was a cold day to pop out into the world! ha ha It makes 60 sound like a heat wave.

  4. You are about two miles as the crow flies from our niece, Sharon. Diana and I have never been to the state park…I guess we need to go there!

    • Sharon Rasmussen says:

      Jim and Diana, we really liked the area and its closeness to so many nice day hikes and great biking. Your niece sure has a beautiful playground for her backyard. Lake Griffin is pretty but it’s a little tight for big rigs though there are a few pull-through sites in the back of the campground.

    What a lovely post. How fun that you not only reconnected with your roots, but a cousin. I know you’re enjoying that camp spot.
