I'll start by telling you a bit about the resort where we are staying. Don't let the term "resort" mislead you down some fantasy filled path. I'm not getting spa treatments every day, and I don't have room service. But I'm not complaining one little bit. Remember the resort in Ohio a long time ago?
This place is not buried in snow (I give thanks to God for the BEAUTIFUL weather) and it is a pretty nice place. We are here in the off season so I won't judge anybody for calling it a resort. I have a feeling that once all the Snow Birds fly up from Florida, it will be a jumpin' jivin' place. Relative to the extent to which retirees can jump and jive that is. After all, there is a miniature golf course, a shuffleboard deck, horseshoe pits, and a clubhouse. There is a mini grocery store with empty shelves and coolers where I stop in from time to time and wish for a jug of milk. Why, this place even has an indoor pool, which is currently empty and is being used as a place to store lawn mowers! In a couple of months, I'm quite sure it really will be a resort! And I'm quite sure we will probably be moved on by then. *sigh*
There is a nice lake nearby, and a golf course right next door. I'll bet that is why almost every house has a boat or a golf cart, or both, parked in the driveway.
|See all the tarps covering all the fun-making machines?|
|I wonder if the people use their carts when they play miniature golf too?|
There is a pond on the property and we were fortunate to get assigned a lot right at the water's edge. One day while on my stroll I took a few pictures. Just random, pointless, or maybe not so pointless, pictures.
|I was almost mesmerized by the leaves in the pond.|
|Under water and undisturbed, peacefully rotting away.|
|Some float. Some sink. Neither by their own choice.|
|I think this would make a cool puzzle.|
|There are fish in the pond, so when I get tired of beating myself at shuffleboard, I can try some catch and release.|
|This one looks like he wants me to take him home.|
When the wind is calm the pond is like a mirror.
|Which way's up? (Another one with cool puzzle potential.)|
And one day it snowed like crazy, for about ten minutes.
|One last look at those amazing leaves. (I would have put this picture up with the rest of them, but I got tired of trying to arrange them all just so. I never can seem to get the photos to stay where I want them. Sorry.)|
Now my poor hubby is the one with stress. His job is not easy, and I so admire him for what he does. He really is one of my biggest and most heroic heroes!
I really must rush off now, to another adventure: a trip to the grocery store!
