We were on our way to the Bradenton area by 10 and arrived at our new location by 10:45. We have been at this CG several times and it really is a beautiful setting. Only downfall is its closeness to Interstate 75. One of the few CG where they take you around in a golf cart showing you available sites and letting you choose! We were set-up in no time and then headed to Wal-Mart for groceries. While eating lunch, we read some local newspapers to try to find a craft show in the area that we could participate in while we are here. This weekend Mixon Fruit Farms is having an Orange Blossom Celebration in honor of their 75th Anniversary. They are a well-known place in this area, especially for shipping fruit. So I called and was able to get a place in their craft part of the celebration. They expect thousands of people. The famous Wallenda high wire act will be part of the festivities! The only down side is that the show is on Sat. and Sunday from 9 to 5, so I know what we will be doing those 2 days. We just hope it is profitable. Time will tell - literally!
|This is our new campsite! Nice to back-up to palm trees!|
Hard to tell, but we have a nice cement pad! (Less dirt!)
|Great courts with fantastic view!|
|Usually we see white Ibis! This was unusual!|
|The OLD and the NEW! This one is a classic! (The colors|
sort of gives that away!) Amazing how much "taller" the
newer Motorhomes are!
