On the Road to Yankeetown

Continuing our road trip after visiting the Cross Florida Barge Canal, we drove north to Inglis, then west to Yankeetown.

Our first destination was the Gulf of Mexico.  The day had started out foggy then the sun came out, but as we got closer to the Gulf, the fog started to roll back in.  Then, along with the fog, the no-see-ums rolled in, too.

So much NO!

When we turned back the sky started to turn blue again.  And there’s the Crystal River Power Plant!  That’s how we know we’re on the Nature Coast!

Headed to “downtown” Yankeetown.  We came here one other time for dinner at Ike’s but it was dark and not a good sightseeing time.  It’s actually a pretty town with some nice houses.  A lot of “for sale” signs–just like the rest of Florida.

Here’s some more NO:

This was just a quick trip so we didn’t get to check out Yankeetown quite as much as we wanted.  We’ll be back to do more exploring and perhaps some hiking in the Withlacoochee Gulf Preserve.
