Journal Entry:
Another fairly long driving day. It's nice to be near the water again, but it is hot and muggy. Stopped to get gas today and stepped on a line of ants. The ants decided to retaliate and I spent several painful minutes getting them off my left foot. There aren't really any accessible camp sites in Everglades National Park (you need a boat), so I'm in a hotel again.
