December 23, 2015 - Sebring, FL

After dillydallying in the morning we decided to head out to explore Sebring area for the rest of the day.

First stop was to have lunch at famous Jimmy’s Greek American Grill restaurant. It is ranked #5 out of 119 in Sebring. We had eaten there two years ago and raved over their superb gyros.  The restaurant was already packed and there was not a table available when we walked in.  We had to wait about 10 minutes for a table.  We decided to order and split just one gyro platter.  They had a lot of specials for today, but we wanted nothing but gyros.  The portion was big enough for both of us! It was delicious and the tzatziki sauce (Greek yogurt-cucumber) was just perfect!  

We drove to Sebring's historic downtown, parked the car, took a walk around the circle.  There are 22 historic buildings and most of them are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  We stopped by the Chamber of Commerce to get information on walking tour of the town.  We were given a map to follow.  

We went in one of the stores Frames and Images and they had so many interesting and quirky stuff.  It was where we bought mini cornhole case (game with beanbags) which is perfect for us to play at campgrounds.

The Circle Park had holiday lights set up all over.  It is called The Carousel of Lights and the lights are illuminated after dark.  

After getting information from the Chamber of Commerce on where to visit the gardens we headed out to Lakeview Memorial Gardens on Memorial Drive. 

On way back to Highlands Hammock campground Erwin spotted something on the side of the road, told Edith to stop and back up a bit.  A gopher tortoise was trying to get away, but Edith managed to snap a couple pictures of it.

Edith went out by herself to get pictures of the sunset and the moonrise at Sebring Park.

We started on a new puzzle and that was what we did before retiring for the night.
