A great variety of food choices was offered. So if any of you are ever in the Avon Park area it is a 'must do'. It is so busy for the Grand Buffet on Sunday (11 am-2pm) I would suggest you call ahead and make a reservation. All inclusive, soup, salad bar, beverage and dessert for $10.99/per person. They also offer Monday-Friday Buffets so don't let this gem of a restaurant slide by you when you are in the area.
Upon our return we took the furkids for a walk, sat outside and read our books for awhile, then came in and had one of those 'retirement' naps. Took the kids for another stroll, visited with neighbours, had supper, and now we are settling in to watch some TV.
Just another wonderful day in Florida!! We are blessed. Stay safe out there!
Home is where you park it
