Spring At The Springs....Wekiwa Springs, That Is
We headed out of Tomoka State Park this morning around 11AM, and headed to Wekiwa Springs State Park in Apopka, FL. That's basically in Orlando for those of you that don't know. It only took a little over an hour to get here, but we had to wait in line to get into the park for nearly 20 minutes. This place is VERY popular, especially on a weekend. We were here before Christmas last year, and really liked the place. Gary looked around at that time, and picked the campsite we are in on this visit. It is much nicer than the one we previously had here. I pick on the weather guys for consistently being wrong with their forecasts. But they were spot on today. They said it was going to be a beautiful day, and it was as perfect as it could possibly be. There was plenty of sunshine, clear blue skies, and a nice breeze. The temperature was in the lower 70's. Unlike Tomoka where there is no TV reception, that is not a problem at all here. Gary got me and our campsite set up, and once my antenna was raised, he dialed in today's NASCAR race. Between watching that and feeding what seemed like every squirrel in the park, our afternoon was pretty much taken up. But, Gary did manage to go out and take some pictures of the area around the spring. It looks VERY pretty. I plan to hang out with the squirrels again tomorrow, while Gary makes the rounds of some local antique shops. There is no chance of rain all week, and we're counting on the weather guys to be as right as they were about today's forecast. But, rain or shine, I guarantee that we're going to have a GREAT time here. This place ROCKS!
