Feb 3, 2018 - Crystal River

We drove to Leesburg in the morning and were there by 9 am just in time for the International Harvester Museum opened up. Dale was in his glory. Hundreds of Farmall tractors, IH trucks etc. It was pretty impressive considering that 10 years ago the collector, owner never had anything to do with farming. Too much time and money by the looks of it. After a couple of hours there we drove through orchids, cattle pastures and some marsh we got to Crystal River, found a Days inn close to a bay and were in our room by 2:00. We then took a walk...

Jan 27, 2018 - Manatees

Vi har nu forladt Orlando og bevæget os ud på Floridas vestkyst ud til den Mexicanske Golf og byen Crystal River. Den direkte køretur tager ca. 1½ time, men når man kører i en Ford Mustang cabriolet, må turen godt være lidt længere :) På vej herud gjorde et par stop i forskellige små national parker med små trails i smuk natur. På vores gåture så vi blandt andet fire slanger, firben og et hav af rovfugle. Vi fik senere at vide, at rovfuglene var Kalkun grippe, som efter orkanerne søger herned for at finde føde i de døde dyr. Crystal River...

Dec 19, 2017 - Crystal River FL Manatee Watch

LindaRose Richardson who lives in Mexico and I haven't seen each other since 2015. We were both in Florida at the same time this month and we planned a trip to snorkel with the manatees just north of Tampa. We also visited as many restaurants and bars as we could manage around Crystal River and ate delicious seafood morning and night. We stayed at Port Hotel and Marina Dive Center. At the marina we booked a morning cruise with Captain Mike's Swimming With The Manatees. The tour started with getting fitted for a wetsuit and then an...

Apr 26, 2016 - 500 Manatees Gather

February was very cold with a few nights below freezing. It was on the news for several nights that more & more Manatees were gathering in the warm waters of the Three Sisters Springs at Crystal River due the cold waters of the Gulf. Our friends Bob & Jean knew about a free-no-admission day at the Springs, so they grabbed us to go & off we went to see over 500 manatees wintering there. We drove to the visitors center at King's Bay, just north of the town of Crystal River. They directed us to a parking lot where school buses shuttled...

Apr 18, 2016 - There's a problem with the WIfi at the park.....

We're getting ready to head for the north country next Tuesday!! Hopefully I'll be able to get new pictures to share with you! *)* A friend said that she hadn't been able to log on here... don't know what's going on... Give me a few more weeks to see what we can do and then we'll have to make a decision on whether to keep this going or now... sigh I do miss putting my thoughts down and I sure don't want to lose all the material that's already stored on the Journal. Thanks for those of you who still check occasionally! Let you know soon!! ^_^

Mar 8, 2016 - Crystal River, FL - Crystal Isles RV Park

2/23/16 thru 3/8/16 With our car still at the dealer waiting for a part, Pat drove the loaner car and Ralph followed in the Motorhome to our new destination 60 miles west to Crystal Isles RV Park. This is another Encore park and we are here as Thousand Trails overflow. The park is 4 miles from the golf and surrounded by marshes and woods. It is an old park but very well kept. The few sites they had left were under trees so once again we could not get satellite TV. But, we did have free cable so it worked out just fine. It’s been a long...

Feb 6, 2016 - It must be February..... : ,

We just had three exceptionally beautiful days with sun and mid 70's and now we're back to lows in the high 30's and highs in the low 50's. Hmmm... sounds kind of like a song....*)* So there's really no super pictures to report right now. Our little azalea is in bloom and on the warm days the lavender buds started opening and the butterflies flitted by... but now they're all in hiding again. sigh Oh well, there aren't any snow banks nor icy roads nor scraped ankles from breaking through the ice crusted snow .. (can you tell I really still...

I could make a fortune with a picture of this on a postcard titled "This is what it's all about!!" ha LOVE being retired! This El Nino year is kind of crazy... storms in southern Florida and hot and cold all over. It is February tho' so it's spring down here. Love that! Not much exciting going on right now... I cleaned out the garden the other day but we...

Jan 23, 2016 - Wow

It's surreal watching the storm hit the East Coast! We're down here in Florida hating the cold temps of 46 degrees for a high and they're up there dealing with 30 inches of snow and wind! It's all in the perspective .... it's supposed to be warm down here!!!!!! Lived in Minnesota for so many years and hated the cold all that time. sigh We did have to put the plants inside the screen house again... it's currently 40 degrees but supposed to be freezing by morning. Hate that the people who raise strawberries have to deal with this.! We see...

Jan 19, 2016 - Good morning!!! ^_^

Don't know if anyone is still even looking at this page or not... *)* It's not as much fun to put things on when the pictures are taken with the IPhone and don't get transferred to the laptop.... In other words, we've gotten lazy around here! sigh This AM I'm just sitting here at the table with my coffee watching the birds at the feeders and the folks out walking with their heavy coats on! It is up to 40 degrees now at 9:30. Luckily the sun is out... and here goes one guy with a short sleeved t-shirt walking his dog. I'm betting he just got...

Jan 8, 2016 - Serbian Orthodox Christmas potluck!!! ^_^

We DID it!! Had a great 'Christmas Day' potluck with over 50 folks in our group!!! I was amazed at the interest .... several dishes were authentic Serbian recipes found on the Internet!!! The white table cloths, the white candles and the straw on the tables gave a realism to the whole thing... ^_^ Jackie led with some Christmas songs even! We had three picnic tables spread with food and great conversation going on as folks ate. Our next project will be in early February.... a chili cookoff! Wish you all lived closer. Love to all.... P & E
