AAAAAAAAhhhhhhh Florida

There's just something about looking at palm trees and orange trees. Being from West Virginia we never saw any of these trees. We did have the apple,peach and cherry trees.

Evening time in the Park

This is a special time. Its Christmas Eve in the park. All the streets are lined with plastic milk jugs with candles burning inside of them. This looks so nice.


Looking both ways in the mall friday afternoon there were plenty of shoppers looking for presents. I've noticed at Christmas time you could just about sell anything. I've seen things in the mall kiosk's that I don't see any other times. I'm talking about regular stuff not just Christmas stuff. I guess people will grab anything at the last minute.

Target Store

I have a good report on the Target Store in Port Richey,Florida.
I bought several presents on tuesday at the store,I started to wrap the presents on friday and saw that one item was missing. I went to the store to see if they had the item and they do keep a record of things that people leave when checking out. The lady checked and could not find the item on the list,I thought just my luck. To my surprise she looks at my receipt and then gives me the credit back on my debit cards. She says here you are. I thought this was really great because,I could have lost it somewhere else. I wished her a Merry Christmas.

Shopping Today

We went to a couple of stores today to buy presents. I'm the one that went to Best Buy but,came out empty. Didn't see anything that I couldn't do without. Nancy spent her time at the WalMart.

Of course everyone has to go to a dollar store.

There is an orange grove on one side of the road leading into the park. They are getting a real nice orange color and probably juicy. I'm tempted to stop and pick one but Nancy says no.

12:23 PM Another Day

Just another normal day here today. Partly sunny with the temp at 68* right now. I won't be doing much of anything except watching my ballgames. We did go to the flea market yesterday with our friends Earl and Lena Fries. Nancy got an old webtv classic,she likes the web and not the computer. She says its easier for her. After we left the flea market we all went to Perkins Restaurant for dinner and sat around awhile chatting.

Beach at the Green Key Park. With the skies cloudy and temps only 66* there were only a few people out today. When it is a nice day the people will come to this beach. There is also a hotdog cart to buy your snacks and drinks on nice days.

We have an overcast skies today. Unlike yesterday that was sunny and the temps up to 78* today it is suppose to rain. The rain will last for a couple of days and the temps around 67*. Not bad at all considering what the rest of the states are going to have.

Shuffle Board

The sun was out yesterday and the men always like to play shuffle board. They really get into this game.

We went down to play bingo last night. This is the first time playing in this park and it was different then the other park we were staying in last year.
When you go in you buy the games that you want to play for the night and thats all the money exchange. No collecting money between games to take up time.
There were 50--60 people playing last night. Halfway into the games there is a break for cookies and coffee. It was a fun night.
Oh,Nancy won one game.

Looking Around

Saw these big birds walking on the road around the lake today. I don't know what the name of these birds are? They look like some type of heron. They have a red spot of their head.

Lake in the Park

Orchid Lake in the Park. There are signs along the edge of the lake says no swimming or feeding the alligators. Needless to say everyone obeys the sign,

New Port Richey,Florida

Here is the entrance to the Orchid Lake Travel Park. We will be staying here for the next 5 months. The reason is because neither Nancy nor I like cold weather. We like this area it has everything close by,plus most of the days we can go out and sit on the beach to watch the ripples in the gulf.
