"Oh, the places we will go" - Florida & Fontana Dam, NC #atozchallenge

Florida is our winter home. Central Florida, to be exact. I lived here for at least 25 years between 1965 and 2004. I love it in the winter, I hate it in the summer. But there is always something to do, no matter the weather.

Because we ride motorcycles, bike events are always tops on our list. Daytona Bike Week, Biketoberfest, Leesburg Bike Week, the nightly bike events at local eateries and various car shows and swap meets. We've attended several of these.






There is an abundance of wildlife and ocean life to enjoy. Stu got his PADI scuba refresher course in Florida. We have visited the manatees in Homosassa Springs. We've checked out the Key West.


We've stayed in campgrounds from the south to the north. Eventually we bought (99 year lease) an RV lot in Clermont, FL. That is now our winter home every year.


Of course, what many think of when they think of Florida is Disney. Yes, we've spent a bit to time there. Stu's birthday, Grandkids Josh & Livie, Grandkid Jesse, Christmas at Disney, plus multiple visits to Disney Marketplace - to name a few.
