Resort Living

Several weeks ago at the RV SuperShow in Tampa I was handed a coupon for a free stay at a "RV resort". These "resorts" are all over the place here in Florida and usually are 55+ communities that have a mixture of RV sites along with permanent residences (trailers, RVs that haven't moved in years and manufactured houses) and offer a range of activities for residents/guests.

So, free being a good thing, I spent The last four nights at Whisper Creek in LaBelle. It was actually pretty nice, no sales pitch, and everyone liked my "little rig". About three minutes after I parked in my site I was welcomed by my neighbor - Phillis was 83 and had been a fulltime resident since 1989 and just wanted to say hello and welcome. Activities - I cleaned the van, did my wash, walked around checking the "big rigs" and the improvements that individuals were making to their lots, gave a couple of van tours (hey, some folk are looking to downsize) and went to the Saturday night concert in the activity center. Nice stay, but four days was about right - little too organized for me.
