Heading south from the COE park, we stopped at the Alfred Maclay Gardens State Park. In 1923 Alfred Maclay purchased several properties that created a 3760-acre estate he called Killearn after his ancestral village in Scotland. The gardens were continuously improved until his death in 1944. In 1953, his wife donated the gardens portion of the estate to the state of Florida. Their home on the property is open to the public.
The primary destination of this trip was the “Skinny Winnie” rally at the Tallahassee fairgrounds. This was our fourth rally we have attended with this group. There were 57 rigs at this event. We had a good time, and everyone worked at having some social distancing as it was becoming very obvious that the virus was becoming a big threat. We were having such a good time that we really did not take many pictures.
It seems pretty clear that this was our last trip for an unknown length of time until this virus is brought under control. The group has kept in touch and as of today no one at the rally has become ill. We have been staying home since we returned and plan to stay here until further notice. Everyone stay safe!
