River Junction Park

While we staying at Lake Blackshear, Hurricane Matthew was approaching the Florida Atlantic coast. The relatively empty park became packed overnight as snowbirds fled the Florida coast. The family was concerned for us because we had made no plans beyond our current stay (so far, we’ve only made advance plans once in the whole journey), but we figured that with a state of emergency being declared in Florida, we’d find someplace to park even if it was just in a parking lot or on the side of the road. Fortunately, while driving down, we found this nice little Army Corps site on the lake at the border, and it had plenty of space to wait for the chaos of the storm’s refugees in the Panhandle to die down.
