Beginning of a New Year

(Avon Park, FL) Hi 79 Lo 49 -- The weather has changed to what we hear it's like in the west, with warm daytime temperatures and very cool at night. Last year on this date we took a swim in the pool. We could have gone today, but by the time I thought about it it was too late in the day. We’ll get a few swims in before we leave the park.

I went walking early so I could work on the computer the rest of the day. I closed out the 2012 budget and started work on 2013. We did really well, only about $200 over budget for the whole year. We’re both pleased with how we did. It shouldn’t be much different this year. In fact we should do better because we won't be on the move as much as we were last year.

I did get out to take a few pictures of our park. I know we have some new readers and I want to show off beautiful Adelaide Shores RV Resort here in Avon Park.

The horseshoe pits are two sites down from us.

We're next door to Judy and Jimmy. They're in the brown Cardinal fifth wheel on the right.

I’ll get more pictures another day. I don't want to post too many pictures at one time.

We played cards tonight with the group because none of us wanted to wait till Thursday. We’re hooked.

The park should hire you to do a advertising booklet.
