Day 6 – Wednesday, September 12th, 2012

This leg featured extremely salty ham and grits, the best peaches ever, cotton fields, and THE OCEAN!!!! I am in love with big water, especially the ocean so it is always a treat to put my feet in it! I ended the day at one of my favorite parks, Fernadina Beach State Park in the NE corner of Florida.

The next morning the ducks woke me up!

I always try grits when in the south only to remember why I don't eat them in the north.

Never get to see cotton fields up in Wisconsin... and I've never seen it this time of year.

I was pretty pumped to see my first palm tree!

A roadside peach stand, had to stop!

The peach man tried ripping me off by charging me a dollar for this peach... I offered him a quarter and told him he was getting a good deal. It probably was worth a dollar after tasting it!

I dig how the trees overhang the roads in the south, and palm trees!

Fernandina Beach State Park, there were tons of deer in this park.

Storms were moving through on and off all night.

My new friends taught me how to throw nets for mullet. We caught a few but not enough for a meal so we donated them to the other people fishing on the pier and ended up catching a shark at dusk!

I didn't say how big the shark was...
