19 November - Since we were awake and up at 4 a.m. to strolled to the boardwalk hoping to see the predicted meteor showers, but there were too many clouds, so not a chance of even a glimpse.
We checked into the Ponderosa RV Park in Kissimmee so we'd be handy to keep our appointment with Camping World for the electric jack installation.
Early rising on the 21st ensured that we'd be ready for that project, bright and shiny, at 8 a.m. The installation proceeded nicely as anticipated, and Cal was very pleased with the workmanship and very reasonable cost.
It was dark by the time Kenzie was down off the lift and the Honda was attached for towing, so we prepared our evening meal right there in the parking lot. Then it was off to Clerbrook RV Park in Clermont (west of Orlando) where we knew Bob and Helen were parked. (They're our NY friends, remember?)
22-26 November - Those days flew by as the four of us zoomed from one fun place to another in their Honda or ours. Bob and Helen have many good ideas, and we sure do have fun with them. This is a super park - huge and great for long walks; there are golf courses so plenty of green around us, sites are spacious; it's quiet.
The space shuttle finally launched on the 23rd and, although it was 60 miles away, was a spectacular ball of fire-it was a clear night so we had a good view.
After Bob and Helen left on the 26th, we decided to stay on at Clerbrook so we could complete some projects and continue to enjoy.
We have never been to this part of Florida before so are pleasantly surprised to find hills, lakes, and much undeveloped land. We feel as though we're out in the country; it's a welcome change from the busyness along the coasts.
Thanksgiving Day: we met Pete and Ellie (NH RV friends staying in a nearby park) and had a delicious turkey feast at the Golden Corral Buffet. All food was like homecooked, and it was nice to be with NH folks.
29 November was the 9th and final day at Clerbrook Park in Clermont - but we'll be back.
30 November dawned cool and cloudy and stayed that way all day but not a problem as we were traveling. The Holiday Park and CG in Panacea was a fine place to throw out the anchor. Our kitchen window looked out on the Ochlockonee Bay with the Gulf of Mexico beyond. Now we're on the Florida Panhandle and heading west.
'Till next time we remain The Happy Wanderers, Cal and Connie
