After Edith got back to the campground she and Erwin went to the Falling Waters attraction, took a hike to check the falls. Some of the boardwalk access were closed due to repairs. There was a trickle of water, almost dried up due to lack of rain. The sinkholes were used as a hideout by Indians fighting against Andrew Jackson during the Seminole Wars.
|Falling Waters is the highest waterfall in the state of Fl at 73 ft.|

We left Falling Waters State Park at 10:30 am, got on 77 North to get on I-10 East.
We had a brief rest/lunch break at a gas station on US 19.
We took exit to CR 137 from I-10, then right on CR 136 to go to Stephen Foster Folk State Park. We asked for a pull thru site with 50 amps and got site #4.

Site #4 is a really nice long pull-thru enough for two motorhomes parked together. Nice shaded area and we liked it. After setting up the Lil' Home we rested a bit before doing anything because it was really HOT HOT outside. Later on we went for a walk around the campground but it was still too hot to stay out longer. About an hour later it cooled off drastically because---see for yourself in the following picture! It lasted for about 2 hours!
