If you love to walk, geo-cache, hike, swim, canoe, camp, bike, view a gorgeous sunset, take photos, horseback ride, or bird watch, then a visit to Jonathan Dickinson State Park should be on your agenda.
The other day while walking along the banks of the Loxahatchee River we heard music; finally figured out it was coming from one of the many pavilions the park has. A man was playing his fiddle and he was really good. We sat on a park bench and listened to him play for a little while.
Another day there were a group of people with their easels, painting beautiful images on canvas. So just not the typical activities within the park, but some unique ones as well.
Located in south Florida, north of West Palm Beach, it is a great place to spend a couple of weeks. Howard and I have camped at this Florida state park during the winter for many years and we truly enjoy each visit.
To see some photos of the park and investigate what other activities Jonathan has to offer, go to the link below.
The dock area, located on the Loxahatchee River, where you can swim, launch/rent a kayak, paddle board and canoe or take a tour of the river with a professional guide. During your river experience you will see gorgeous scenery, historical landmarks, alligators, manatees, herons, osprey, bald eagles and other wildlife.

No sunset photo this evening, it is raining. Until next time!
For hours, this male Cardinal has been sitting in a tree, near our coach door. He sings and sings and sings; I think calling for a mate. I have yet to see a female Cardinal with him. Keep trying handsome guy!
I went back to my archives, for these photos, of the Northern Cardinal. While camping at Stephen B. Austin State Park near Katy, Texas, earlier this year, we were entertained watching them swing on these vines. I can’t wait to see them again along our route heading south.
