Fort Pierce

Fort Pierce. The end of the road. Well, the end of the Trail for the Crackers, not for my adventures. One article I read said they'd end up at the P. P. Cobb General Store, near the marina, after their run. A reincarnation is still there, but I knew it was closed on Mondays. I was going to settle for some exterior shots, however… • • There looked to be plenty to do near my parking spot. Walking the dog first, I noticed two chaps pull in, Snowbird types, and walk over to the Manatee Observation Centre. They tried the door – closed. Oh, dear. They tried the Visitor Centre – closed. And over to the Backus Museum…closed. Fort Pierce has a lot to do, just not on Mondays. The park along the water had some shade, so we did enjoy a walk (and a wiggle in the grass – not me). A check for manatees in the warm canal waters came up empty, but the outside Scavenger Hunt at the Backus was a bit of fun, and educational, too. • • Taking all the closures as a sign, I decided we better stay another night, and set about looking for a spot. Unsurprisingly, no room at any of the nearby state parks. The local KOA was full, and the one an hour away was over $90/night 😳 Ah, Februarys in Florida! On a whim, I called the county park I'd driven through Sunday night. They had one spot, for one night. Sold! It was still early, so with sleeping arrangements set, we headed out for somewhere that *was* open on Mondays! • • @fortpiercefl #closedmondays #stillpretty #walkthedog #lookformanatees #floridawinter #snowbirds #LoveFL #floridacrackertrail
