Where did the time go?

Wow where did the time go. This whole month is gone and we are leaving Florida. We have had such a great time, kept busy every day, perfect weather, park staff that really is proud and passionate of their park, we helped with an event concert while not believing what a great concert location at the park, and have enjoyed working with the other volunteers. Bye Highlands Hammock State Park and all the great wildlife that kept us searching them out daily. They even have ladders in the dumpsters to help get the racoons out in the mornings. Creepy little fellows. We became quite fond of our little alligators in the canal and those old buzzards.

My favorite new thing is using the big ole log chopping thing - it is way cool and a big boy tool! I could have cut wood for days on end - there is just something cool about it

Warren was the master at wood pimping. He was like the ice cream man driving in the neighborhood. Oh speaking of ice cream - Warren made the best - very best - Butter Pecan ice cream while we were there. Yummo. Loved driving the golf carts they were each different and so easy to get around in them - oh ya...note to self....don't try driving in the sand on the trails with them. We got to experience the process of prescription burning in the park and how fast the land turns green again. Cleaning bathrooms .... well it is just that .... for the most part people are respectful and leave them nice .... but when they don't ...... yuck. Warren also has mastered the mop too!

Wonderful photo opportunities every time I took a stroll. Little Bailey loved chasing and watching the squirrels. Bailey and Tess found a turtle and had a good time barking at it and licking it - but when it moved they sure did jump. The entire park is covered with beauty and I could never begin to load all the photos I took and think are heavenly. I will try to get them onto flickr as soon as possible.

Restaurants in the Sebring area that we really enjoyed - Woody's BBQ, Cuban Deli in Historic Sebring, Yiannis Prime Choice Steakhouse, and always a blizzard from DQ. Our biggest disappointment in restaurants was Olive Garden. Poor service and very poor food, we went twice to give them a fair shake! The biggest shout out is to Panera for having a perfect location for me to hang out and use the internet since ours was just not strong in the park.

I did get a little mosaic time while there. I wanted to make my new friend Joyce a pot and give her a plant and made a couple others too - planted them and sold them right away and I know Joyce's daughter and grand daughter will love them too.

Headed to Georgia back to our home base park at Ft Yargo State Park for the next 3 months. Hoping for a nice summer without scorching heat :>), spending time with our friends - Vivian & Verna the other camp host. I am sure not a day will go by without a little eventful fun along the way. Well maybe a lot of fun!

Oh ya and Chic-fil-a opened in Winder this week ...... happy dancing for that! Eat more chicken y'all
