Canaveral National Seashore – Day Two – Bicycling

David:  We scheduled our biking day for a Sunday.  We wanted to get on the road fairly early in the morning so, Jodi’s husband, Jeff, and I loaded the bikes in my vehicle Saturday night.  As I suspected, there were three bicycles and no lounge chair as was called for in the original, i.e. Jodi’s plan.  This trip was going to be interesting!

Jodi:  The plans were made and the day had come to bike and tan at Canaveral National Seashore (CNS).  The guys were going off on their bicycles and I was going to soak up some rays.  I wanted to finish up that John Grisham novel I’d started.  Yeah!  Dave’s SUV was loaded and ready to go.  I called ‘shotgun’ and climbed in the front passenger seat.  I looked back to see Hubby and three bicycles.  Three?  Is my chair back there?  Nope!

I gave him that wife to husband ‘you’ve got to be kidding me?!’ look.  He just laughed and said you’re going with us.  Great I thought.  The last time I was on a bicycle, I was nearly hit by a car.  It was completely my fault.  I’m not exactly known for my gracefulness.  But that’s what this blog is about…getting up and out and doing new things.  Ok, I’m a good sport, I’ll roll with it. (Pun definitely intended.)  As it turned out, Hubby who is a Florida native didn’t know there were North and South Districts of CNS either.

Lake Ashby Park – Volusia County, Florida

Jodi:  On a Friday morning at 9:00am sharp, Dave and I set out for Lake Ashby Park.  Roughly 45 minutes later we turned off the main road following a boat launch sign.  We then found ourselves on a dirt road that led to the parking area of the park.

David:  The access road to the park passes through some, what appears to be, old-growth pine flatwoods with longleaf pine and saw palmetto. Some of this area may be considered to be a little on the wetter side or “hydric” with another species of pine – pond pine. Read More…
