Shanty Pond, Ocala National Forest, Florida

On Thursday, we moved from Bushnell to Shanty Pond Campground in the Ocala National Forest.  So we're back to living the good life without hookups and loving it.  We have 8 RVs as part of our group, with 2 or 3 more expected.

Surprisingly, there are only two other campers in the campground suitable for about 60 rigs.  I guess folks are just not camping in these difficult economic times  The two other rigs are "homeless folks" according to the campground host.   If you have the camper, I guess it is cheaper to park  it here verses a commercial campground.
(I wrote this Saturday and forgot to post it online.  Sorry.)

Our stay in the campground at Bushnell was rewarding to say the least. Sandy used the opportunity of having electricity  to bake a  short cake (for strawberries) plus some cornbread. They both go well with my diet.

Today we checked out the local flea market, only 8 vendors with nothing of any value or interest to us.  We checked  over the fruit stand and at least remembered the hours  It isn't much, but when we run out of grapefruit, there is a possibility of perhaps getting some fresh ones there maybe.  The supply on the shelf today looked like they have seen more than a few days of waiting for a customer. We'll be back there on Wednesday when our mail should be in from Beth, Sioux Falls and Williamsburg.

The weather continues to be unreal, with the temperature in the range of 55 to 75 degrees.  We love it.
