We haven’t been doing much, just kicking back and enjoying life. I did stalk another big bird, over by the pond/lake. It is a beautiful bird and I think it is a Heron, but not sure. Hope Judy can enlighten me on this. I guess to save a lot of wear and tear on Judy, I need to get myself a bird book. That way I won’t have to keep asking her what they are. I saw some little white birds, but before I could get a good shot of them, a lady and her dog scared them away. I think they were Ibis.
When I was through fixing supper, and cleaning the dishes and kitchen last night, I decided to go ahead and get my nightie on. Not too long after sitting down to watch TV there was a knock on the door. Donnie answered, because of my being indisposed, but my curiosity got the better of me so, I stood behind our stove and talked to the gentleman. Turned out he was a reader from when I still had my blog on my trip journal. Bill said he had been reading my blog forever and just wanted to stop and say hi. A really nice guy. He is staying at the Ocean Pond campground out in Osceola National Forest and was telling us about it. He didn’t stay but just a few minutes, but it is always nice meeting my readers.
Of course, he got me thinking about the campground so we took a drive out that way and drove through it and some of the forest. I thought we might see Bill and stop for a minute and talk, but we didn’t see him anywhere so maybe he has already pulled out. We loved the Park and I took a few pictures to share with you.
We loved this park. It only has water and electric and of course doesn’t offer Wi fi or cable, but for just a few days I could do without both of those things. It seems like more and more we want to be away from all the hustle and bustle of the towns. This just gives us another option when traveling from place to place. We also have the Golden Age Pass card that allows us to stay for half price. This park would cost us $12.00 a day with this pass. Not bad, and the surroundings are fantastic.
Tomorrow I may get out and visit a few thrift shops. I went out yesterday and visited the Chamber of Commerce office and picked up some info about the area. There is plenty to do and see around here, with several State Parks very close to where we are. We plan on visiting as many as possible. I also checked out the groceries and other places we will be utilizing. They have a very large Publix grocery here, but I was not all that impressed. May go there to get my meat though. Do any of you use this store? This is my first experience with them..
Want to welcome my newest followers, Allen and Connie. Please if you have a blog, share it with me, and I will share it with my readers. Welcome to you both and I hope you enjoy the ride.
