Blue Jay MH & RV Resort, Dade City, Florida
We placed an order online a few days ago. The UPS tracking number showed it has been out for delivery since 09:25 a.m. so we were hopeful to get our package this morning. It is now evening and there is no sign of UPS. That is disappointing since we hung around the trailer all day waiting and being afraid to go anywhere in case we would miss the delivery guy.
Florida is now slowly warming up again and todays high were 19C/66F. Tomorrow it should be even warmer. The dogs had their numerous walks with Benno and again with me and for a while we sat outside enjoying the nice warm sunshine. No sign of Willi. Maybe he is exhausted from his recent excavating activity and is now asleep.
I took a few more pictures here in the park. There were landscaping guys at work at a couple of houses planting nice looking shrubs and flowers. Most owners have a little flower garden or plants around their units and the colors are beautiful. The next few pictures were taken around our unit and I will take more over the next little while.
In our park’s newsletter I noticed an offer for free lemons in someone’s backyard. They said they had thousands and to feel free to pick some. So I did. In Canada the lemons are often sold in bunches and I have been in the habit of freezing the juice and zest separately so I have it at hand when the recipe calls for them. On our boats I used to wrap lemons and limes in aluminum foil and stored them in the fridge. That kept them fresh for long periods.
So not much had been happening here today. We laid the outdoor carpet out, but need to weigh it down with some planters. The supplied carpet anchors, which are meant for lawn or dirt ground, don't do any good on the concrete pad. This will justify a trip in to Zephyrhills tomorrow to get some nice looking planters.
Update: Yay, the UPS guy just pulled in with our package at 06.30 PM! He needed Benno's help to lift the damned thing from the truck as it weighed about 100 pounds according to him. The contents I will reveal tomorrow, so stay tuned.
