A cave, a storm, and our new digs near Tampa

Well, we made it to our new digs near Tampa, we will be here for 1 or 2 weeks at Hillsborough River State Park. On the way here we camped near Florida Caverns, who knew Florida had caves you could explore?
Some of the passageways were a little tight in spots (I left a little of my hair on the ceiling) but well worth it!
One of the local residents, but not to worry he's only about the size of my thumb.
We  made a one night stop at a horse camp, this is where we encountered the "storm of the century" ;)
 As you can see it's a big open area, nothing to block the wind. About 3am the storm hit waking us up from all the rain and thunder, we soon went back to sleep to the sound of the rain and all seemed fine...that's when the back side of the storm hit...55mph wind "moved" the camper. First ya say "sh*t" than you do it...lol.

Our camp in Tampa, Cindy says it like camping in Jurassic Park :)

The wild life here is amazing!!! We have 3 or 4 Barred Owls right near us and they seem to love talking to each other, we go out and listen to them at night. This is the sound they make

At night, with 3 or 4 of the them...haunting!
