Today’s weather was nearly perfect. This area avoided the daily thunderstorms. It was a partly cloudy day with normal Florida Summer high humidity and a decent breeze. The temperature peaked around ninety degrees.
My irrational annoyance with lawn mowing was stimulated this morning with the sound of trimmers and leaf blowers outside my window shortly after 8AM. It was lawn mowing day at the RV park. I know they have to do it, but why do they have to do it when I’m around? Other than their starting time, they seem to be a little more considerate of occupied sites today. It also helped that I was away from the RV park when the noisy mowers were close to my site.
Most RV parks and some campgrounds have grass that needs to be mowed. In the summer time that means once a week. When you live in RV parks it is inevitable that you will be there when the grass gets mowed. I think my basic issue is the noise. The people doing the work have ear protection, but those of us nearby usually don’t. I have some noise canceling ear buds that I could put on to listen to music or podcasts, but when you are still in bed that is not a great option.
While I was out today, I stopped at the Ocala Wetland Recharge Park once again. It is a great place to get some walking and nature exploring done. The number of birds visible today seemed to be down from my last visit. The birds seem to hangout in the tall grass and brush along the sides of the drainage ponds. Still, I managed to get a few bird pictures.
