We popped the furkids and ourselves into the car and headed into LaBelle today to have a look around the area. Popped into the win dixie for a few things..(nice store and I think the only food store in town)..
We came back and Peter and MJ next door invited us over to meet some other folks and have happy hour under their awning. Thanks Pete and MJ...
After happy hour we came in and I dished up our spaghetti supper, toasted up the garlic bread..and Rick did the dishes. I've been reading blogs this evening catching up with you all, and watching tv.
Some Palmdale History:
It seems like in the early 1900s Palmdale was a booming town, tourists came from all over the country to experience the wilds of Florida, and stay at the Majestic hotel built by Otto Fog. Up until the 1960s Palmdale was home to several favorite eating and drinking establishments and even had a gas station or two. All that remains now of its thriving town is the post office and the Sabal Palm Campground. Palmdale was never destined to become a tourist attraction and the cabbage palms reclaimed her, perserving its beauty for us to enjoy today! Now the community of 300 is indeed so small you might never know it existed at all if you didn't go looking for it. Once upon a time, Palmdale was a fashionable destination. It is now a hidden treasure of peace and tranquillity. Monday night it rained all night which was good as Fl sure needs some rain.
Tuesday we headed on out late morning for Cape Coral and a visit with my sister. My bro in law was off so the four of us went out for supper. We had a nice visit, and got back to the resort around 9pm..wouldn't you know the gate was in place and we forgot to ask at the office for a swipe card. Rick walked in and our next door neighbor drove him back to the gate and swiped us in..here are some pictures of our current park:
|The mascot I believe|
|Entrance to the Park|
|Camp Office and Store|
|Pond where you know who lives-I don't want to meet him|
|Ossumer parked and setup|
|Community bonfire area|
|Yup Gator lives in there too just a small fellow|
|Ossumer on other side of dog park|
Tuesday was warm but overcast and today the weather is calling for a high of 81 and cloud cover. I guess we can live with that for a day or two.
So have a super day folks, and stay safe out there..until the next time - thanks for stopping by!
Home is where you park it
