Early Non-Stop Day.

Our Location today is Apopka, Florida.

This morning after lying in bed for awhile looking at the ceiling I got up thinking it was time to start the day. Then I looked at the clock only to see it still wasn’t 7:00 so rather than disturbing Kathy by climbing back in bed I went to the back room to fire up the computers. I have mentioned before that once I’m out of bed Kathy normally wakes up. Today was no exception as she joined me in the kitchen by 7:05 ready to start her day. The big problem is now we are both nearly falling asleep at the computers as I’m writing this post.
Weather not looking too promising, but we didn't get wet. The rain had preceded us to many of our stops.
Since we’ll be moving to our next park for more adventure on Friday I took the time to dump out and flush our waste tanks. The high daytime temperatures is slowly going down as we head towards this weekend but the humidity has been climbing making it uncomfortable when you have to shut the windows because it’s raining outside.
Back inside we continued working on the computers until lunch where we felt quite satisfied with a bowl of Vegetable Beef Soup and a Bagel topped off with a Multi-Berry Cream Cheese.

After lunch we headed back to the dentist office to have a minor adjustment made to my partial plate. Dr. Suzanne Davidson was happy to see that I was doing good noting that the gum was not quite totally healed but better than before. She was camera shy as Kathy attempted to take her picture but within a few moments had the plate fitting perfectly.
Since the weather was predicted to be unfavorable today after leaving the dentist’s office we spent a while looking for sandals for Kathy but couldn’t find any that fit comfortably. Next going to another shop in the mall I managed to find a toiletry item that I had needed for some time.
We decided we’d explore Old Downtown Mount Dora but first we needed something to cool down with so we stopped at Checkers for a Frozen Yogurt cone for only a dollar each.

Kathy had read in a brochure of a trolley ride that we could take around the town that would have pointed things of interest for us to visit outside of just the touristy shops. After being unable to find it we asked a resident about the trolley and he said it had been discontinued but pointed out the Chamber of Commerce Build where we could get more information.

I dropped Kathy off so she could investigate and after a slow trip around a several block area returned just as she was exiting the building. The result was the trolley was no longer running due to cost overrun and since we weren’t in the mood to walk through the blocks and blocks of small shops we just headed for home.

I got caught up on my blog reading while Kathy continues making her entries into the new spreadsheet which she says is working perfectly. She now only has to get the entries made since we arrived at this park and she will be up to date.
Nice Sirloin Steak, Salad, Baked Apples and a glass of Wine.
For supper I barbecued a couple of nice Sirloin Steaks while Kathy created a wonderful salad that was more than satisfying. We later witnessed another beautiful sunset. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

    That dinner sure looked good!!!! I could almost taste the wine from here.
