Settling in to my new life. I embraced my new life in Florida….(Leaving the weather out for now).

We were so much in love. Neither of us had ever been married. He had had live ins and lot’s of women. I was a single mom who had never dated since breaking up with her son’s biological father…..
We were like teenagers. Everything came alive. Danny and I did everything together.
Worked together. Played together. Laughed and loved.
We also cried together.
Learning to live in a NEW STATE, NEW HOME, NEW MARRIAGE, NO FAMILY, NO FRIENDS And NO BOBBY. NO DREAM OF GRANDKIDS.
Yet, I thrived. We were BUSY.
Bike riding every evening. I rode all over the area all day. Down Park Drive and back. 8 miles.
Boating, Kayaking, FIshing, Walking, Hiking, Eating outside, BBQing…..Taking the cat for a walk on a leash. We just had fun.
Nightly campfires down my the water. Swinging.
Cooking together.

Danny and I on the lake...My birthday. 2006. Months after Bobby died. I celebrated life while I cried because Bobby wasn't there. We'd never spent a birthday apart. Never.

This was not taken anywhere around Camp Mack. It was taken while we were living there.

I had embraced that life as well. (That story needs to come out as well.)
The circumstances of my move here were not the best. Everything Normal in my life was gone. FInished. Gone forever. “With The Wind” comes to mind.
So many stories and memories I need to write about.

Early Days With Danny (In Florida):  Part 3.
Laughing Because Part 2 hasn’t been written yet….
It’s over a short short time period.
But oh so much happened.

Another laugh….
I can be rather stubborn.
Camp Mack’s Fish Camp Changed it’s name long ago. Way before I had ever heard of it.
It’s real name is Camp Mack’s River Resort.

What it is an old Fish camp trying to be a resort.
And does very well at it.
Yet, It is still a fish camp.
It is a resort in that everything you need is enclosed in a small subdivision -like area.
You have the Kissimmee River….The Canal. One side has Lake Kissimmee and the other Lake Hatchineha. You can travel up and down the Chain Of Lakes here. Miles and miles of them
Inside the compound is an old camp store …bait shop….gas pumps…..An old-fashion  swing for 2 overlooking the river.  …..boat docks…..boat rentals……Rosie’s little cafe…..RV sites….a 24/7 fire pit………a laundry hut……luxury cabins……boat houses, shacks along the river to rent…….It’s own water plant and sewer…..Mobiles homes to buy or rent…..Bike’s and golf carts to rent…..
It’s own Bar…..Liar’s Saloon…. A Motel……Offices…a huge clubhouse and pool…..and so much more.
It’s one of those place you have to see to believe.
We loved it there.
It is also right across from Lake Kissimmee State Park.
