September and October Fun

We had a fun family trip down to Gatorland Zoo in Orlando. We arrived early to hopefully beat the crowds and heat. We enjoyed the alligators. We got hot but had a fun time. We took the swamp buggy tour ride and enjoyed it but all felt bumped around during it. It was like the Jungle Cruise but more… ummm….swampy? Our day wrapped up at Disney Springs with a yummy Dole Whip Float and some exploring the Lego store.

I have been enjoying some masked and semi socially distant hangouts with my friends Steven and Anna. We have been walking and hunting Pokemon. We hung out in the park bug hunting. It is nice to do some normal things, even if we are still masked and cautious.

We added more to the front garden also. We found this really cool nursery in Sefner called Kerby’s. It was first class all the way. We not have a banana tree, a new eucalyptus, some fun hanging baskets, lost more butterfly host plants and more.

We also picked up a new basketball hoop. We have been having fun playing in the driveway daily. GO SPORTS?

E and I are working on a project restocking local Little Free Libraries so we hit a few in Safety Harbor this week to clean them up and restock them.

This weekend we went hiking at Moccasin Lake Nature Park and then drove to Boyd Hill Nature Park and spent the afternoon hiking around that park. We saw lots of wildlife and very few people. Even a few gopher tortoises!
