It was cool and overcast today, but after I got out walking, it felt crisp and invigorating.
Workmen have been busy here since September stringing the lights for the Christmas Light Extravaganza. If you would like to see a picture of how it will look when it’s finished, here are photos I took when we visited December 21, 2011.
Our campsite here is not that great. It’s way in the back and is surrounded by dense scrub. It’s almost too private because we can’t people watch back here! But it’s a great place to cocoon in the chilly weather.
Sheba has amazed me this trip. She has been so good! Mom’s husband, Jean, remarked that she sure is a well-behaved dog. She listens to commands, doesn’t get upset by having to be tied up between walks, and has only barked a few times.
I am SO glad we survived puppyhood with her and did not adopt her out. Everyone she meets loves her, and I often hear people say, “I used to have a dog like that….”
I missed being able to visit the museum and craft demonstrations today. I just assumed they would be open. Will have to check my paperwork and hope they are open on the weekend.
Anyway, we are relaxed and happy! We have reservations at a county park at Mt. Dora Monday-Wednesday. That’s all that was available on such short notice. After that, we’ll probably hit one of the Ocala National Forest campsites for a few days, then head back to Ocean Pond to camp with Gail and Mike again.
