When Cara asked me to do a post on my town, I kinda felt like, "What in the world am I going to tell you about little ole Palatka?"
However, I have since come up with several interesting tidbits about the town where I currently live.
First, a little about me.....I'm Melissa. I'm a pastor's wife with 3 children. We have only lived here for just short of 5 years. Being in ministry, as some of you might know, does not give me the luxury of staying planted very long. God uproots His plants, sometimes quite frequently. We have lived in 3 parts of Florida, as well as 2 parts of South Dakota.....in 12 years. So, this had the potential to be either a very lengthy post about all the places we have lived or just about the place we are now. For the sake of your reading pleasure, I'm choosing the latter.
During the rest of the year, the park is open to walkers and runners to use it's peak/valley terrain as an exercise course! It's full of adventure for kids as well. Suspension bridges and look outs over the ravines are so much fun to experience. It's not the Grand Canyon or Yellowstone, but it's special and unique to Palatka.
So there you have it. That's a snapshot into where I live. One more thing that's neat is that I am about an hour from Daytona Beach, St. Augustine, Ocala, Gaineville and Jacksonville. I guess we are like the Donut hole....:)
Thanks for visiting......
