A Rather Relaxing Day!

I only fell asleep around 1 AM this morning, so I was not in a hurry to get up. Only crawled out of bed around 8.  We got dressed and by 8:40 the 4 of us were walking around the CG to get a good start on our 10,000 steps.  We did stop to check out the owl nest, and now we definitely know she is sitting up there.  Talked to some folks and they told us the owlets have not hatched yet.  Last year by this time they were several weeks old.  Not sure what what is going on.  She and her mate must have gotten a late start!!!!!

No question that the owl is in her nest waiting for the
babies to hatch!

This is Waldo's space for the next week! 

After our walk, Ken and I decided to cook our breakfast outside, as it was warming up rather quickly.  It was 47 degrees when we got up but went to 72 degrees today - it was gorgeous with lots of sun.  We even ate outside.  Then Ken and I made a trip to Wal-Mart for some groceries, stopping at a bike shop in Eustis to inquire about biking trails.  We also stopped at an orchard to get some oranges and grapefruit.

We were back to Waldo by 12:45.  Chuck and Melissa had gone to a local farmers market while we were gone.  After lunch, we went to hear Zeb's Bluegrass Pickin' Party, a group of musicians here at the CG the play bluegrass music every afternoon from 2 to 4 at Zeb's site here at the CG.  We went to hear them and found it rather entertaining!

These guys and gals get together every afternoon just to "pick"!

From there we headed to the shuffleboard court where the men played against the women.  I think it must have been the longest shuffleboard game in history!  It just went on and on and on!  The women had a strong lead, but somehow the men won by 4 points!  Not sure what happened, but it wasn't good!!

This CG has 8 great shuffleboard courts!

And the winners are .......  who are they?????  Looks like
the ballerinas are doing their thing!

I think they may have had too much to drink.  They are
so far off balance!

The winners are --  oh my, that is Ken and Chuck!
Back to Waldo by 5:45 to have dinner.  All the meat was cooked on our grill, but we always eat in our own RV's, clean-up, and then get together to play games.  Before the games began, Melissa wanted to try the stretching exercises Ken and I do each morning so we got down on the floor and tried them.   The guys didn't see us when they returned from taking out the trash, and then discovered us on the floor when they entered Waldo!  They thought it was rather comical.  Tonight we played Pinochle.  We taught the game to Chuck and Melissa at Pine Island and they wanted a "refresher course".  They are playing very well, but again the men were victorious.  Hopefully their "luck" will change as the week progresses!

Let the stretching begin!!!

Halfway thru the game, I started sneezing a lot and got very congested.  So, Melissa went to get the Vick'ed Puffs - new Kleenex with Vicks in them.  I think the guys got rather "addicted".  They kept them "handy" at all times!!! We "broke up camp" at 10:30 after another fun-filled day!  We love spending time with Chuck and Melissa!

What is wrong with these guys????
