Left camp at 9:45 and drove south on SR 19, SR 33, I-4, SR 17 thru Eustis, Tavares, Howey-in-the-Hills, Polk City,... to Winter Haven… 110 miles. Here we are for Christmas Did some walking around the Circle B Bar [county park]… and the mobile home park. Lots of Christmas visiting with Donna's relatives. Lots of eating Waked on a sunny beach on Christmas Day [see header pic]. Then New Years came and went. Welcome 2012! I hope the year brings peace to the world.
One of the coolest things that happened was the evening before we left. Went for a walk around the park… didn't take my camera. Along the grass apron by the small lake, four Sandhill Cranes were walking. I felt pretty sure they were the same couple that was here last year and had two eggs… had heard the chicks grew up. They were prancing and strutting and croaking and I walked beside them, within 20 feet, for quite a ways… trying to imitate their strut When they got to the shore, they wadded in the shallows and began a courtship-like prancing and flying up over each-other's head and dropping down. What an amazing experience to see this family playing together!
