Myakka River State Park

We went to Myakka River State Park a couple of weekends ago.

Early Saturday morning by the river

Myakka River State Park  is about 9 miles east of Sarasota and about 90 miles south of where we live. It is one of the largest state parks in Florida, covering several thousand acres.

There are tram tours in the cooler months, and airboat tours year round on really large airboats.

There is a raised canopy walkway and lots of hiking trails.

All the rest of the day on Saturday

But we didn’t get to do any of that. Because it rained all day on Saturday. I guess it’s good we enjoy each other’s company.

We’ve made reservations to take a long weekend there over Labor Day. And then we’ll do EVERYTHING!
