On Top of Ol’ Hobe

Florida, Road Trip, States

We headed south on US-1 hoping to connect with a friend of Steve’s from high school days. Didn’t make the connection but did discover Jonathan Dickinson State Park near Hobe Sound. We climbed the observation tower atop Hobe Mountain which at 86 feet elevation is the highest point in Florida south of Lake Okeechobee. It was a glorious, on top of the world, kind of feeling. We explored the park a bit, reveling in the Old Florida feel. Fron there we headed north along US-1 and A1A and landed at the campground in Wickham Park in Melbourne as recommended by folks we met in the Everglades. For dinner shared the Guinness Beef Pie at Meg O’Malley’s in downtown. Just a little slice of heaven. We bookmarked it on Yelp!

Magerøya Island

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
