'13/#10 Interesting Neighbors

We have been here in the Ocala National Forest just about 3 months. I talk about our little piece of paradise with all the natural beauty that surrounds us. But I am ashamed to say that I haven't taken any pictures to share. This morning Mary called me in what sounded like a panicked voice. I ran and instead of panic I found excitement. She pointed out the window and I ran for my camera. This is what was outside our window. And then it was gone. I am now motivated to take the camera with me and take as many pictures as I can. They may not be as spectacular as these but you will see the beauty that is Alexander Springs.

We have some interesting weather lately. It has gone from hot to chilly, sunny to overcast, rain and hail, and at least several severe weather warnings with at least one confirmed tornado in the area. Toss in the "controlled burn" by the Forest Service and you can imagine that we are kept on our toes. Not only are we concerned about us and our rig there are our coworkers and all the campers that have to be warned about the dangers. Never a dull moment at the springs!

Last week we went to Stuart to see the uncles and had a great visit. This is the first time we didn't have the rig with us. They had an inflatable bed which turned out to be very comfortable. We talk and laughed and ate and had an early birthday celebration before we had to leave. We are not that far away from them so Mary feels good about being able to see them more often. I think they are just as glad as we are about this.

Well I will end this now and make sure
my camera is all ready to take more pictures around our home her in Alexander Springs because....

Home is where we park it,
Frank and Mary
