Back at the end of January/beginning of February we went camping up in Orlando. We went to the same KOA campground where we stayed last year during spring break. Last year when we got there, they showed us to a strip of grass basically and that was our "campsite" such as it was. By this time, they had completed two nice actual tent sites complete with water and fire pits. Last time we weren't able to have a campfire because of county fire restrictions but the KOA was able to get an exception for the new tent sites somehow based off the nice fire pits they put in. We had a wonderful time! Obviously with Florida's landscape being so different, camping down here is quite different than in most places but it was still nice and relaxing and relatively quiet.
We borrowed a ball from the office for Kay to play with while we started to set up camp.
It rained and sprinkled off and on all that evening and into the night. It wasn't a soaking rain though, thankfully. You can see some water droplets on the camera lens though.
Staking down the tarp that we put under the tent.
Possibly the best part of camping - the campfire.
Kevin grilled burgers for supper for us so Kay and I played our version of soccer.
The water droplets look like snow in several of the pictures but I assure you there was no snow in Florida.
Hee hee hee :-)
The KOA sits on Lake Whippoorwill. The lake is quite beautiful and Kevin got some nice misty morning pictures of it while Kaelyn and I finished getting around one morning.
We enjoyed canoeing on the lake again this year - probably this time even more than last year.
Don't these pictures make you want to just "sit a spell"?
We did a perfect mixture of activity around the campground and sitting around relaxing.
"Canoe" guess whose bare feet those are? :-)
The day was so still and the lake was so calm that we seemed to literally glide through the water. I've never paddled a canoe and had such an easy time rowing where we just cut through the water with no wind at all.
We all really enjoyed ourselves and can't wait till we can go again.
