Mastering the ABC's: Alligators and Adibs, Battling Bugs, and Camping Caziers

Don and Virginia officially launched their nearly four month long summer tour with a visit to the Adibs, camping with them Friday, May 8th, at Hillsborough State Park. There was much to enjoy about the campout, but the semi-annual emergence of hordes of "lovebugs" created a bit of a challenge to both campers and vehicles. Below we see some of the more enjoyable moments:

Alligator in river discovered by Dimitri. Light-colored object in water near Dimitri's head is probably a big 2-3 foot long needle-nosed fish that was swimming by.
