THURSDAY: TRAVEL LOG
TRAVEL LOG: Flagler Beach, Florida, October 7, 2006
When Kai was just eight weeks old, we ventured out to the Bulow Plantation Ruins Historic State Park, just north of Daytona Beach, to breathe in the fresh Florida air.
Back in the early 1800’s, this sprawling 150 acre plantation grew sugar cane, cotton, rice and indigo (a valuable type of dye). Then in 1836, the Second Seminole War crushed the plantation, leaving behind remnants of a sugar mill, several wells, slave cabins and the plantation house. Today, only the crumbling and eerie ruins remain under the thick canopy of oak trees and silvery Spanish moss.
We snapped some shots of the three of us exploring the park. Here are some of my favorites … enjoy!
