Decisions and Changes.

Where are we today?
Thousand Trails Orlando, Clermont

We arrived here at the Thousand Trails Orlando Resort on Tuesday. What a wonderful surprise! It is fantastic. We were given a "Premium" site which is just lovely. It is on a corner so no-one is next to us on the driver side and the passenger side faces out onto an open area. The only downside is that the passenger side faces West and, therefore, is in full sun in the afternoon. But we can live with that!

The campground is HUGE! 850 full hookups on 255 acres. There are 2 pools, a hot tub, tennis courts, horseshoes, shuffleboard, a gym, activity center, a small lake with alligators (still haven't seen one), and a whole lot more.

We have made a decision, in part because of this wonderful campground, to stay in Florida for the winter. So I have made some changes in our bookings. All the ones I made for the Florida panhandle, Alabama, Louisiana have been cancelled and new reservations made for Florida. We will be going to some parks in the center of Florida, also in Bradenton, Pine Island, and Sunshine Key. We start heading home at the beginning of March, spending some time in Georgia, Hunting Island State Park in South Carolina, Myrtle Beach and Points north, including a few days at my sister's home in Maryland.

Posting some pics of this resort.

  3. The beauty of this lifetsyle is we can change whenever we like.

    That is a great park we visited some friends there this fall, the one couple Sharon and Dave I believe are there all winter, She sells crafts on Saturday at the clubhouse and is cooking a few meals a week there too. I am sure you will run into them and say hi for us.

    Enjoy Florida, We stayed at Bee's about 20 minutes north of there.

  4. Very nice park! I could use some sunshine about now :)
