12/11/13 Wednesday at Wildwood, FL (Three Flags-TT/MA)
With the sudden awareness that Christmas is coming in 2 weeks, I put out our decorations (both of them) and worked on the Christmas email letter most of the day. John camped in front of his computer and the TV. I sent our gifts Monday, when I first realized how close the date is. Back when the kids were small my goal was to start the Christmas letter and get most of the gifts by Halloween. Hah! Guess I’m not so organized now. I checked out computer email and blogs later while John watched TV.
We managed to drag ourselves out of the RV in time to enjoy some of the nice weather, then off to a potluck dinner (I brought deviled eggs). Nice food, lovely people. Florida is filled with toll roads and the “easy” route to Clermont (our next campground) is via such a road. So I asked what they recommended. One couple said they use it ($4.50) so they don’t have to drive through the congestion of Leesburg. This alternate route is only 3 more miles, so the fuel costs would only be about $1.25 or so. The other couple was in the same position as we, not having been here before so unsure. They’re planning to go the longer, cheaper route now.
A shot of our site. We’re in the public section so we could get TV satellite. The member sites are lovely, with lots of shade from the trees and spacious. Enlarged you’d see the Spanish Moss on the pine trees. Spanish Moss is not a parasite, it’s an air plant.
