It's been awhile, but here I am on this fine Sunday morning. What a beautiful day in Florida!

We returned from an RV trip on Thursday amid downpours... we didn't venture too far from home due to fuel costs, etc. but had a wonderful time at the Holiday Travel Resort in Leesburg. If I were a snowbird, I believe I'd like that park for the season. There is so much to do, from mini golf, to volleyball, to horseshoes, to tennis. Plus swimming, crafting, cards, etc. Even a restaurant with home cooking on premises.

Anyway, during our walks along the river (yes, there is a marina) we saw alligators, turtles and tropical birds. Looking across the river into the swamps was like seeing the Louisana bayou in the movies. Here's a couple of pictures from our trip.


Our daughter and her husband had visited from Connecticut the week before. We had the most divine weather while they were here. Couldn't have asked for better.

She is an avid scrapbooker and cardmaker, like me, and we had loads of fun touring the local scrapbook/stamp stores. We have three independent stores here in Spring Hill that carry unique products not found in the big chains. Needless to say, making the rounds was so much fun.

We also got time to take them to the pool and beach. A very restful vacation for them before they had to return to the "north country".


  1. Shari, it sounds like you had an awesome couple weeks. I love your pictures, beautiful. I envy your shopping trip!!! What fun. Hugs,

  2. Love the pics. I can see the babies on the back of the momma alligator.
