Werner-Boyce Salt Springs State Park II

As promised, my photographer took me back to Werner-Boyce State Park.  This time we used the State Road 52 entrance which is called "The Black Rail Trail."  We don't know why they call it that as you can see here that the rail is not black. In any case, this is the dog gate.

We went and and walked down the dirt road a bit.  My photographer said "Wow!" and took these two pictures.  

We found a Nature Trail.  We started to walk down it but decided it was too muddy. We thought about ignoring the mud and going further but my photographer was concerned about me having muddy paws.  My grandparents said they have wild hogs running around back there.  I wanted to see one but after thinking about it I decided to turn around.

We walked back to the dirt road and then walked all the way to the end of the dirt road.  It wasn't really that far.  It was hot out.  This park doesn't have a lot of dog amenities.  No showers, baths or water spigots.  They do have a little stand with bags for picking up after dogs who have to do their business.  It was empty.  Well, it was fun but we wanted to get out of the sun.  I had a chance to read the information board on the way out and then hit the road!

Werner-Boyce Salt Springs

My photographer took me to Werner-Boyce Salt Springs State Park but did not take our camera!  What kind of photographer is that?  Anyway, according to Florida State Park's website, you can fish and paddle around this park.  The salt spring itself is said to be 320 feet deep.  Lucky I know how to swim.  The are supposed to be gophers, tortoises, fox, birds and dolphins in the park.  We didn't see any of that but it sure sounded like we were hiking in the jungle.  The park has three entrances.  We tried the Scenic Drive entrance at 10333 Scenic Drive, Port Richey, Fl.  We found a nature trail and walked the entire trail.  It was a big loop back to the parking lot.  My photographer let me be in charge.

This park has two more entrances.  One is called the Black Rail trail head and is off State Road 52.  There is also a Main Gate at 8737 US Highway 19 North.  My photographer says she will take me to both.  It is so hot hot lately that I am not so sure about that!

Weeki Wachee Springs


God it's been sooooo long!!!!  Finally I got to go back to a Florida State Park.  Well, kind of.  My photographer and my Aunt took me to Weeki Wachee!!!!  I wanted to see the mermaids but I wasn't allowed in that part of the park.  I did get to see a pretty peacock however.  They brought me around to the trails where dogs are allowed.  We walked and walked.  We saw lots of big elephant ears.  It was really fun being back on a trip and being in natural surroundings!  You have no idea how much I miss doing this!  Well, finally!  Bliss!!!!  I did not see one alligator!!!  It was safe and so fun!!!! 

Getting Our Mojo Back

YES!!!!  I don't know if you noticed, but its almost an entire year since I've posted anything.  My photographer let our State Park Pass expire.  Today she took me to T.Y. Park.  It's a county park but do you think I really care?  I spent a good part of my puppyhood here after all.  My photographer said she's getting her mojo back.  That means we took the camera!!!!

Don't worry.  My photographer said we will get a new park pass and continue our journey.  We have to wait awhile but we will do it.

Surfcaster Motel

Here I am enjoying myself at the Surfcaster Motel.  What a backyard this place has.  The Surfcaster Motel is pet friendly.  The man who owns it really liked me and told me that once some big cats stayed here too.  The young people who work in the restaurant liked me too.  They wanted to give me some pepperoni but my mom said no.

Sebastian Inlet State Park

Here I am once again freezing my tail off.  Mom gave me her jacket.  I thought we lived in the tropics.  This park was pretty.  There was a nice beach.  I saw surfers and pelicans.  Lots of pelicans.  Maybe we can come back when its warm and take proper pictures.  In the meantime we have to go home and hunker back down.

Here I am enjoying a cold ocean breeze with my mom.  My photographer didn't take very many pictures of me here.  My photographer says all beaches are starting to look alike.  If my photographer had her way we'd only go to springs.  This was a nice park but not really for dogs.  The only place I was allowed was the parking lot.
