*****A Fun Week in the Sun
Little Florida is a peaceful retrieve from the active life most of us lead. You travel through farmland wondering where the river is and then your on this small peninsula surrounded by water to a home that is more than you have anticipated.
There were ten members in our family, 6 adults and 4 grandchildren ranging in age from 3 to 11. The first thing we did was explore the beach, the dock, the home. There was so much to see and so many activities provided for all us, we were elated. The home is fantastic and larger than expected which gave everyone a space of their own.
The week went by too quickly. Everyone enjoyed the water and the sandy beach. The children explored the waters for shells and other items, dug in the sand to make castles, tunnels to channel water and holes large enough to partially bury themselves, while the adults basked in the sun. We all took turns on the kayaks daily which enabled us to travel far and wide. At dusk, we fished from the dock which was a new and very exciting experience for the grandchildren. They caught a few fish that were put in a bucket where they were watched, held and squeezed but finally thrown back in the water. At night we played games, made puzzles, watched movies and after the children went to bed sat on the deck in pleasant quiet and watched the river.
Nature itself gave us unanticipated joy. There is a nest with adult and baby osprey and we were able to watch their daily activities with provided binoculars. One day, an eagle tried to get to the the young ospery. We were all entranced, young and old, by the air attack and defensive flying plus the vocal squawking that ensued. All ended well. We watched a blue heron swimming in the moonlight that was absolutey breathtaking. On the front lawn, it was delightful to watch the antics of rabbits as they searched for food and played. By far the most wonderous sight in this fantastic place was watching the evening sunsets across the wide expanse of the river.
During the day, we took turns exploring the museums, and the small towns that were easily accessible from the location of the peninsula. My only regret is not having the opportunity to visit one of the local vineyards but then that is something you look forward to on your next visit.
I would like to personally thank Trish and Austin for all the effort they put into making this an exceptional vacation for everyone who visits their very special home and place.
Joan and family
