It’s been two weeks since I last posted. First I’ll provide a big picture view of the time that’s passed then fill in a few of the blanks. We stayed at TT Orlando until Monday, March 7 when we moved to Lazy Days in Seffner, FL for two days. From there we moved to Stephen Foster State Park in White Springs, FL.
Now for a few details. Our time at TT Orlando was nice for lots of reasons. Great weather, line dancing every morning, lots of friends from our motor home club in VA (Karen and Berkley Alexander, Carl and Donna Gruel, Butch and Liz Jones, Bobby and Barbara Dyke ) and enough activities ( geocaching, Skycraft, Graves R/C Hobies, Webster Fleamarket) in the area to keep us busy. Meals out and happy hours filled in the remaining time. Lazy Days was a quick stop of only two busy days. For those that don’t know, Lazy Days is the largest RV dealer in the country. So big, it’s hard to imagine if you haven’t been there. We always enjoy looking at the latest and greatest but inevitably walk away with a confirmation that we made a good choice when we bought Shamu ( our current motor home). We bought Shamu from Lazy Days. One of the benefits of the purchase is that we are “Customers for Life” which includes breakfast and lunch when we’re there. You can probably guess where we had 2 meals each day.
Wednesday, March 9 we migrated north to White Springs, FL where we’re staying at Stephen Foster State Park. Along the way, we stopped for a visit with “Big Daddy” Don Garlits at his museum in Ocala. For anyone interested in drag racing, this is a “must see” stop. This is one of those places that provides sensory overload. There are so many historically significant cars and motorcycles, so many signs, so many engines, so much automotive stuff. Take my word for it, it’s good.
Stephen Foster park is an interesting place too though it’s a bit remote. White springs is on the Suwannee River of “Old Folks at Home” fame. This is Florida’s state song. Foster also wrote “My Old Kentucky Home, Kentucky’s state song. The museum, exhibits, and facilities are all first rate. We had an interesting day exploring the area while geocaching.
Friday we move north again to Perry,GA where we’ll attend the Family Motor Coach Association’s International Rally. We’ll be attending with about 30 friends from our Dogwood Chapter. More later…….
