Hard to believe how quickly time flies. This weekend we are going into weekend number 12 and I am finally sitting down to write about weeks 6 and 7. It’s been a busy time for sure between working at our cabin and the house and not to mention the camper.
Weekend #6 took us to the State Fair, where I was part of the Photo Safari. I entered 20 pictures into a contest that I had taken at the state fair. While I did not win I still had a great time. We are not ones to go to the State Fair and do the rides and this year was no different. We went and saw the animals, the crafts and the exhibits. One of the exhibits that was there was the Tampa Bay Ukulele Society, which we did not know it even existed. However, we enjoyed that the most. Fun group of people and great entertainment. They were willing to share and teach us. I see ukulele lessons in our future. Ukulele’s are small and can fit nicely in the camper. Mike won a beautiful ukulele, just in time for Valentine’s Day and it goes without saying that is what I received from him for Valentine’s Day. Now we need to get him one as well so we can make some music while on the road. I took a lot, when I say a lot of pictures, I mean 570 of them and narrowing it down was daunting. I totally enjoyed myself and seeing things through the cameras lens. We arrived early and stayed until about dark. It was a long day and a lot of fun. It dawned on us that more than likely that was our last Florida State Fair for a while as we will be hitting the road before next years.
Weekend #7 took us to Lettuce Lake as we were looking for someplace close to hike. We went with our besties, Nancy, Mark and Nya. We first started with a great breakfast at 18 Bagels and then headed to Lettuce Lake. I have been there before, however I did not remember it being so beautiful. It has a great nature center and beautiful boardwalks. We saw alligators, and birds galore. The views were spectacular and it was a photographer’s paradise. One day I hope to get their early enough to get some great pics of the birds.
There is not much more to say about either weekend except if you haven’t been to the Florida State Fair, you should go as it is a lot of fun. Also, if you are in the Tampa Bay area, check out Lettuce Lake, it will not disappoint.
I hope you enjoy the pics from both weekends.
