2/18/14 Tuesday at Clermont, FL (Orlando-TT)
Once again, getting packed up and ready to go went smoothly (no troubles pulling out of our low spot) and we were off before 9 am. Also, the roads were good: 4 lane or more most of the way. Yes, we had traffic lights and lower speeds for the times we passed through towns but that’s just part of the journey.
The “adventure” this time is that as we were approaching the Orlando TT preserve we were distracted by a phone call and forgot to pay attention to the signs that would warn us that we were near. The campground signage is invisible until you are right on top of the intersection plus you need to be in the right turn lane. So John drove on a mile or two then deftly navigated a U turn on busy US 27.
The good news is that I love our spot. So level that we only needed one block for one tire and no jacks down. So firm because it’s of concrete. We face the East so we get sun on the passenger side but we have a lovely tree there that shades us! After picking up our “orphaned” Y connector and water regulator from Sherwood Forest and shopping at Costco and Publix we came back home to simply relax in our very own shaded yard in this most perfect weather. I watched the cutest bird and squirrel go about their business as I read the Blue Binder (re trip on the East Coast) that we need to return to Betty/Denny.
John grilled our turkey burgers and sauteed mushrooms, onions and a red pepper for our supper. Yum. Perfecto. To finish our beautiful day we took a walk to Linda/Ove’s spot, visited, then returned in the dark to “Jeopardy”.
P.S. I love our shady trees but John is not getting his satellite TV shows so he’s not so happy.
P.P.S. I started our marathon of wash loads (overdue because the lack of sewer in Peace River means no room for wash water in our gray tank). This should take about 2 more days.
P.P.P.S. I had such a great time in my shady yard, I forgot to take a photo to share.
