We were on the road by 9:45 today, filled up with propane and gas, and headed down the road to Bushnell, home of Sumter Oaks RV Park. We had 1 pitstop and pulled into the park at 12:05 pm. What a lovely place! They have an indoor heated pool (that is pretty cold!), pool table, lending library, craft room, movie room :)
We settled into our spot (right by the activity center so David doesn't have to walk too much), and headed out to Sonny's BBQ pit...Oh man, I so missed their baby back ribs! We pigged out big time (brought 1/2 of everything home for dinner tomorrow night) and then we just drove around Bushnell, giving it a look see. We made the mandatory Wal-Mart stop, got very few things but had a good time walking around and looking at all the people shopping like mad!
We talked a bit about staying here and not going to Tampa until Sat or Sun, but I want to go shopping on Black Friday, and really there is nothing here! So, we will keep to our original schedule and leave Wed morning.
We came back to the park and started out to 'social hour'. For those of you who are NOT Escapee's, all Escapee parks have social hour at 4 (except LSC who has social hour Mon - Wed - Fri). Well there were only 5 other people there, and they were all new like us! They tell me that they have a 10 am coffee every morning and that is when everyone gathers to chat - we shall see tomorrow morning!
When we came back to the MH, there were 3 beautiful Sandhill Cranes (per a park member) who put on quite a show for us - they were literally 6 feet from us. They began to dance, with 1 at a time jumping into the air and waving their wings, each taking a turn - it was fascinating! We felt very privledged to see the show!
We're in for the night now - see ya'll tomorrow (I'm back in the south, I can talk like that now:)
