Eden Gardens State Park, Florida

So I haven't done a blog post in a while mostly due to the pandemic and our lack of adventures and enthusiasm. Now we're getting back in the swing of things and I have some photos piling up. We're currently in the Florida panhandle near Panama City Beach, or PCB as it's known locally and just finished a 3 month job at Eden Gardens State Park working for Florida State Parks.

This is our first time working for a state park system and our first time doing outdoor maintenance. It was really great living here and working to keep this place looking beautiful. Exploring the panhandle has been fun. There's a lot of state parks with beautiful white sand beaches and some great raw bars in the seaside communities if you're so inclined!

Walking among these sprawling live oak trees gives a distinct feeling of awe knowing these trees range from 400 to 600 years old. And amazing as these trees look, finding photographs in them can be tricky. I only got a few keepers and this was my favorite. I love that it worked in black and white.

Check out my gallery on Eden Gardens State Park. It's under Parks in the header above.

Thanks for being here!
