Wandering Wednesday

Wednesday November 21st 2018

Today’s weather was ideal. The temperature started around sixty and climbed to the mid seventies before returning to the sixties at night fall. The sun was clear of the clouds all day and a gentle breeze kept the air moving.

I did some more area touring today. Traveling on a combination of heavily congested roads and back country roads I saw a lot of nothing. By that I mean nothing that caused me to stop and explore. The most interesting area I traveled through was the downtown area of the city of DeLand. It has many older multi-story buildings and tree lined streets reflecting its status as a mature city founded in 1876. So many of the developed areas in Florida are new. Finding a place that displays routes before the 2nd half of the twentieth century is rare.

Back at the campground this afternoon, I watched more people arrived for the holiday weekend than I expected. I suspect that many of the new arrivals are fairly local. Four of the units I watched arrive came with only a driver to get parked and setup. Then they departed for an hour or two returning with a vehicle filled with people.

Happy Thanksgiving

Tonight’s sunset.
