I don’t know this ebony cat’s name but I do know he’s the Top Cat at Gemini Springs Park.
This not-so-well-known park is beautiful. You can find it in Volusia County, just inside the town limits of Debary. That’s about 20 minutes or so north of the Orlando metro area.
There’s a lot more I’d like to tell you about this fine park. We camped there for two nights back in November. It was a delightful stay; we bathed in exquisite moonlight, slept outside and loved every moment of it.
But I’m not going to tell you any more about the park right now except to say that that handsome, magnificent feline — whose name shall never be spoken aloud in this space — is the mysterious entity in complete control at Gemini Springs Park.
And if he deign to permit us a follow-up frolic in his gorgeous domain this spring, we’ll be heading up I-4 again, packed with tents, stoves, firewood and cat treats.
A confirmed lover of camping & cats, I am,
