January 3, 2017 - Sebring, FL

Sometimes it feels good to sleep in.  It was overcast, so we decided to be lazy for a while. 

While eating our breakfast we watched some campers putting stuff away before checking out of the campground. There was one couple who spent hours and hours of checking things repeatedly and it took them over an hour and half before they finally got their motorhome on the road.  We were fastincated with how they prepared things.  Just an observation, that’s all.

We sat outside drinking coffee when the sky started to clear up.  A good time to go biking when it was not so hot.  We biked for more than 3 miles, biked around the Hammock Loop.  
I looked grumpy because I thought someone else was 
videotaping me, but then realized it was Erwin

On way back to the campground we stopped to visit the museum.  There are exhibits showing the guests what life was like for the Civilian Conservation Corps (C.C.C.) volunteers.  If it was not for the C.C.C. this park and others parks would not have been formed.  So, many thanks to the volunteers for their hard work into making this happen.  The C.C.C. was a public work relief program between 1933 and 1942 and about 3 million young people were put to work. They helped restore 3,980 historic structures and helped develop over 800 state parks.

After lunch Erwin went shopping for electricity stuff and some groceries. I stayed behind to work on our travel blog and to prepare stuff for the supper.

It was a very pleasant afternoon with the campfire going on.  For supper we had grilled pork chops and petite potatoes, along with salad (without lettuce). Erwin cannot eat lettuce. He likes and loves lettuce, but lettuce does not want to be his best friends, at all.

I spent the rest of the night planning travel routes to the West for this spring.  I was checking to see what cities/towns to visit between Florida and Arizona. We hope to start our trip to the West by the end of February.
