Is it time to go home? That’s the question that I’m asking today. The clues are there….I’m tired, impatient and feel deprived. Two nights ago my husband and I got drawn to a Chinese buffet and gorged like heathens.
I am missing the news…even though the online stuff looks like nothing has changed except a big blizzard and the pope resigning. And missing some of my mindless tv programs like Revenge and Nashville. And missing a good, solid internet connection.
So today finds me in Chiefland, FL’s library….on a perfectly beautiful Tuesday afternoon! If I am very truthful…I could do what I am doing online in the Casita, but I need a little break from my sweetie….maybe hours more than I have!
So sad that I need my space….he just bought me an early Valentine present, a tiny box of chocolates from Walmart as who knows how far we will be from a store come 2/14? (Tiny at my request.)
Sunday we left our great little campground at Lake Dorr driving across the state to Manatee Springs State Park joining two other Casita owners camping here. It has been fun helping one of them get introduced to her new trailer as this is her first outing.
The spring is also beautiful and the short run winds up at the Suwanee River. But, we are just about springed out and have no interest in kayaking.
The water here is deeper than Salt Springs, our normal swimming place, but it does not entice me to get wet.

Backing up a little…..our week at Lake Dorr was wonderful. The privacy soothed me after camping with neighbors too close!
These guys were our neighbors last week.

We named him Clyde, the Beggar Catbird!
Every meal had him at our side with his piercing eyes wanting a handout. We don’t feed the wildlife but he was hard to resist!
Also took a short paddle on Alexander Springs which was less than 10 miles from Lake Dorr…..the pictures are beginning to all look alike.
Tomorrow we return to the Ocala NF…hoping to get back into Salt Springs cg, but it may be full. Not really ready to head back home…the 4 letter “s” word is in the forecast!
Maybe another meal out will make everything better!
