I can't believe it's been so long since my last post. With that being said, we've been in the state of Florida for about a month now. We made our way to several spots in FL for the specific intention of seeing some friends I had worked with prior to retirement. I'm very happy to say that we accomplished that goal. The downside to all of this is that we're in Florida in July. That means hot, HUMID, and thunderstorms nearly every day.
We moved over to the Orlando TT preserve just south of Clermont and stayed there from June 25th to July 9th. Our friends John and Mary Potter have retired to a beautiful community just north of Clermont. We were able to visit with them and to see their beautiful new home and to have dinner at their home one evening. Thank you again John and Mary.

Gulf Waters RV Resort. This is an ownership resort and I'm sure it is quite busy during the winter months, but there were probably only 10-15 rigs in the park while we were here.
Nervous Nellie's Restaurant on the waterfront at Fort Myers Beach. Great food and great company. It doesn't get much better than this! I would highly recommend this restaurant if in the area.
Lover's Key State Park. This park is located north of Ft. Myer's Beach and is situated on the Gulf with plenty of backwater for canoeing, kayaking, hiking or biking. We took our small bikes and rode some of the trails on Black Island.
After Ft. Myers, we headed back up to again stay at the Orlando TT preserve from July 16-July 30. The reason was two-fold. Since we are TT members, it costs us $0 to stay for another 2 weeks (after annual dues, of course) and we wanted to visit more with the Potters.
In looking back over this post, it's truly a conglomeration of a bunch of unrelated topics, but I wanted to get "caught up" with our blog. Did I mention that July is probably not the best time to visit Florida. If I didn't, let me say it again. It's darn HOT and HUMID this time of year.
Thanks for dropping by to take a look!
