So we took a nice walk and enjoyed the Spanish moss, hanging from the live oak trees. The campground was pretty full with lots of local folks setting up for the Halloween weekend. It’s celebrated more here than in Wyoming, maybe because it’s so cold back home?
Anyway the neighbors had motion activated life size figures, including a large rattlesnake. As I had had an encounter with a real one several weeks ago they were lucky I didn’t get my shotgun out and waste it, (we live and let live when we encounter rattlesnakes when we are in the middle of nowhere but I have a different attitude in campgrounds when there are small children present).
Unfortunately a cold front was due the next day so we headed out to Monticello, Florida where we stopped to visit our friends Bob and Sue. After five years of full timing they have bought a house, to live in for the winter months. It was so nice to see them and they are so happy to live near her sister.
However the campground we stayed at is the worst one we have ever stayed at! It’s called Tallahassee East KOA, and between the trees and other campers I almost got blocked in. Luckily I was able to back through two empty spaces, pushing small branches out of the way and barely made it out the road. Our neighbors tried to tow their rig between two parked rigs, (using the road, they are that narrow), and they hit a motor home as their back end swung around. Don’t ever stay there if you have a big rig.
So we said our goodbyes and headed east and south to Bushnell and Sumter Oaks Rainbow Park. It’s a beautiful place in a quiet setting. It’s a relief to be done traveling for a few months, ok we will pull to Tampa area next week, but at least we don’t have to worry about cold fronts and snow! Clear skies.
