We arrived in Ocean View, Delaware around 1 p.m.
today and will be here 11 days.  I built this house for my good friends who presently live in Florida.  It has turn gables on 4 sides which is the Florida "cracker" style .I designed it this way in order to build the roof by hand and by myself!

Last Ride!

We rode 16 miles today and made our first stop at Chapin Station, a beautiful park near Winter Garden.

This is called the Path of Life and is a beautiful garden at the park...We are leaving for home Monday and have enjoyed the time here in Apopka, Florida.  The bike riding has taken 7 lbs off me and Maureen has lost 5 since we began.  We need to make room for Maryland crab cakes that always appear when we are home...

Riding Florida Trails

We have been riding the West Orange trail and just rode 10 miles today.  Its a beautiful bike path with some small hills to climb but what a ride going downhill!

Magnolia Park Visited

Click to enlarge
Nice boat ramp to Lake Apopka, just sitting there!
This park is beautiful and has a small campground to boot...Magnolia Park is another great city park.

Found this blue heron near the shore just surveying his domain... The lake is large and we did not see one boat .  It is strange to be at these places during weekdays but we love the solitude!

Finally I came across this peacock sitting in a large oak.  We also saw some Sandhill Cranes near here but did'nt have the camera.
