Hot Temps and Common Sense

Yesterday I was driving up US Hwy 27, one of the major roads in my part of Central Florida. My girlfriend and I had just made note of the fact that the digital thermometer readout on the instrument panel was displaying that dreaded three-digit… Continue Reading “Hot Temps and Common Sense”

Had a Fabulous Time at LKSP

Lake Kissimmee State Park is about ten miles outside of Lake Wales, Florida. It’s a spot we always enjoy when we have a chance to get out there again. About two weeks ago we made it out again for 3 days/2 nights of camping… Continue Reading “Had a Fabulous Time at LKSP”

Return to Lake Louisa

It was last week when I had another chance to pitch my tent at Florida’s Lake Louisa State Park. I had a blast. My girlfriend and I had camped there twice before and we’ve made three day visits there to take advantage of the… Continue Reading “Return to Lake Louisa”

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… Continue Reading “Black Cat Boss”

Deer and Springs at Kelly Park

We had occasion to camp at Kelly Park in Orange County (Florida) not very long ago and had a terrific time. We were stunned at how tame the deer were. They came around–and in considerable numbers–every evening and night. Having said that, I must… Continue Reading “Deer and Springs at Kelly Park”

Another Camping reservation
