I’ll tell you what he does! He cruises over to one of his fave city parks here in Central Florida and fires up the grill.
Sometimes he does the full monte breakfast; it’s always fun to fire up that two burner camp stove.
There are a thousand reasons why I don’t get to camp or hike nearly as often as I like; could be a work schedule issue. Could be a budget thing. Very often it’s because my fave campgrounds are all booked up.
The header photo for this post is of Downey Park on Orlando’s east side. This spot was very well-planned and put together and has way more grills than most parks. And even thought it’s usually mobbed–especially on the weekends–I usually have no trouble finding an available grill.
Lake Downey is a lovely spot on the eastern edge of the park; it’s a very nice place to take a photo or two. Or fifty or sixty. So here are a couple of photos I especially like of this corner of Downey Park.
I hope your week is off to a good start. I’m planning a beach getaway for later this week. Will let you know if I pull it off!
