Life just doesn’t get much better than this….
Initially this winter, I was concerned as to whether or not we would enjoy remaining in one spot for an extended period of time, however, this has been just what the Dr. ordered for the both of us. Bob’s speech is thriving and he has become quite the social butterfly once again. He has met many of the other folks in the campground and spends hours sitting in “The Barn” (large community center) visiting, playing games, and watching a fire in the fireplace while being entertained by the Salt Springs Pickers. Lots of toe tapping going on around here
Salt Springs is such a small peaceful community and one cannot help but feel welcome. It is hard to remember the last time I entered a grocery store, hardware store, or even the post office and was greeted with so many smiles. Life is certainly peaceful and very laid back.
This afternoon Sherri, Randy Bob and I made a trek back to the Square Meal for lunch and then ended the afternoon sitting on the edge of the canal soaking up the warmth and watching the local wildlife put their show. What a wonderful way to spend a Sunday.
Both Sherri and I have enjoyed one anothers company and support since we both have a “hands on” understanding of each others challenges. Some gifts in life are priceless!
As we were taking in the serenity of the canal, one of the long term employees of the park rolled up on his golf cart and shared his stories with us of the many snakes, turtles, bears,alligators and manatees that reside in the park. He was telling us about the hawks that follow him around looking for his fish hand outs when he whistles. Sure enough…in a very short while we were treated to his magic.
We were speechless if you can imagine that !!
Although we found where the Alligators sun themselves on the other side of the canal , we were not fortunate enough to see any today.
We hope everyone has enjoyed their Sunday as much as we enjoyed ours. Have a good week.
