We headed up to Ocala a bit early and stopped at the bookstore along the way. We also spent some time at Silver Springs State Park walking the trails. We saw wild monkeys. Years ago when it was a private park they had monkeys on an island. Little did they know that the monkeys could swim and the rest is history. We say about 10 monkeys, including 2 cute babies! They were too far away to get a good photo.
Mom had a 5 lined skink run up her clothing all the way to her head, TWICE!
We saw lots of lubber grasshoppers.
Checking out the spring head before we head out to camp.
This is my second year at Ocala Adventure Camp sponsored by the FWC. Last year I took the hunting camp and this year I picked the anglers fishing camp. We were first into the cabin so I got to pick my bed. I picked a top bunk right by the counselor. Mom and Dad got me all set up right as the torrential rain started. There are 11 boys in my cabin ages 10-13, plus two counselors.
Looks like a great group of young men. Mom and Dad are hoping I have a better time with the older kids this year. Last year my entire cabin were 9 year olds. I wanted to wear camo to fit in better and oddly I am the only one in camo! ACK!
