This Summer we decide to travel in our RV “The Roge Mahal” and head west, to Utah with short and long stays in between. Pre-Planning for this trip and where we would be camping took us-about two months as we wanted to make sure we would find state parks and campgrounds we would enjoy. Starting the first of June we worked our way north out of Florida after having a delay the very first day when the motor powering the retractable steps in the motorhome died and had to be replaced, causing us to loose a night of travel.
Our first night included another Florida spring (Manatee Springs State Park),
then on to Panama City, passing through the beach areas that had been devastated by Hurricane Michael two years before.
That evening was spent in Southport, Florida at the only lavender farm in the state of Florida. Southern Grace Lavender Farm is run by the Leabo family and Cotton the dog, Priscilla the pig (Cotton’s 300 lb playmate), two ducks, and chickens.
Southern Grace was a member and we were happy to oblige them—We stocked up on lavender oil, tea, and moisturizers.
They also built a wedding gazebo and can host private parties and picnics.
