Wandering Oaks RV Resort, Ocala, Florida
Let us be honest, apparently it does. Last night we dropped down to 2+C/35F and it was not in the forecast. We had our propane furnace set on thermostat and really didn’t notice the cold. For the morning dog walk Benno had to double his sweaters, but by the time we were done with breakfast the temps were already up to 12C/53F and later on it warmed up to the point that Benno donned his new shorts.
Today I wanted to get some Yoplait yoghurt cups from Walmart. This brand is reasonably priced, has lots of real fruit bits and does not contain food colorings. Walmart’s parking lot here in Ocala now also has security cameras. We’ve noticed the signs of surveillance cameras in use at other WM locations but here they put the new “Lot Cop” movable units throughout the parking lot, picture below. It sure helped to keep the bums away and made us feel so much safer parking our truck there. Benno talked to a security guard who patrolled on foot the parking lot. The cameras are monitored off site and the guard is being informed via his radio, if there is something going on. That makes us appreciate how lucky we are in Canada, as it has not come to the need for these units yet.

Next on my agenda was a little shopping at the ALDI store. There is one located next to Walmart here in Ocala. It is a German supermarket store chain but obviously does not carry as many German items here as they do in Germany. However, they had our favorite German fruitcake, i.e. Stollen filled with Marzipan and Cherries and some other great Christmas chocolates and Lebkuchen, which we love to eat. Aldi is known for basic food items usually at a lesser price than other food stores. In addition they carry two aisles full of all kinds of merchandise at a reduced price. The products change constantly and you never know what they carry next week. So I filled my shopping cart with the cold cuts, Artisan bread, fruits, vegetables and fresh meat I came here for and a pair of Merino wool socks for Benno and a Motion Laser Light Projector for Christmas that was priced at $19.95.

Christmas is only a month away and this time I did not pack any Christmas decorations or our mini Christmas tree. With two dogs in the travel trailer and only the table to put it up on I thought there was not enough room for it. Instead I think the colorful lights shining onto our trailer will be sufficient to put us into the Christmas Spirit.
A good price for this unit
It comes with a stand and stake
We tried different lights and motions
Tomorrow promises to be another nice day here and perhaps we will just stay put and relax. Thanks for dropping in again.
