Today was a decompression day. It was the first day in more than a week that I didn’t have to worry about a tropical weather system or moving to a new location. Even though I’m only here until Monday, I know where I’m going to be for the next two weeks. That goes a long way toward stress relief. Changing plans on the fly seems to be harder than not having a plan at all.
Today’s weather started bright and sunny. As the day went by the clouds started to move in. A cold front is going to bring some unsettled weather tomorrow, but the week ahead is forecast to be the first real fall weather in this part of Florida. The high temperatures next week are only forecast to be in the seventies. After a month of hot and humid in southwest Florida and the keys, it will be a welcome relief.
On a couple of walks around the campground I identified a lot of changes since my last visit more than three years ago. The area of the campground I’m staying in was only a muddy dirt mess. It now has many brick paved RV sites and a restroom building complete with an exercise room. It is the most upscale area of the campground.
The park is mostly full this weekend. Most of the weekenders seem to be from the Jacksonville area, but the snowbirds are also starting to arrive. I noticed RVs from several northern states. It is going to be interesting to see how the snowbird season goes. I’m sure many people will chose to endure the northern weather rather than venture into unknown virus territory.
