After leaving Cedar Key we drove a whopping 48 miles (about 1 hour) and landed in Crystal River, FL. We stayed for the next week at Quail Roost RV Campground. The CG is about a 10 minute drive from the water and met our needs for a nice place to stay and explore the area. Being as it's summer time in FL and the temps are climbing, there were very few other guests staying in the campground.
Our initial intention was to scout out the area for places to launch our Sea Eagle and to do some paddling on the water. When we heard the warnings about "flesh eating bacteria" in the unusually warm brackish waters, we decided not to tempt fate. Again, our chances of contracting this were probably similar to Karen catching rabies from the cat bite, but we just didn't feel like pushing our luck.
Three Sisters Spring nearby. The spring is crystal clear and frequented by manatees during their season.
