3 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

I Am Thankful For An Awesome Event And Being Able To Rest Afterwards – Day 15

I was the go to person for getting everything set up at the park.
Our volunteer co-ordinator made arrangements for the actual event. I am very glad I didn’t have to. Sometimes it is nice to be in the background getting it done and not having to be the person in the spotlight. She dealt with All the media.
Even Danny was left out of most of it.
We got the BALL rolling and worked on it for 3 years behind the scenes.
It was wonderful though for it to be acknowledged officially.

Lake Kissimmee State Park – Florida’s Natural Wonders

While it was definitely worth the drive to experience these scenic trails, there’s much more to this park. For instance, it’s bordered on 3 sides by 3 different lakes: Lake Kissimmee to the east, Lake Rosalie to the west, and Tiger Lake to the south. All 3 lakes are connected and are very popular for fishing and paddling. The 10-mile Buster Island Paddling Trail is the paddlers’ equivalent of the hike I took. Kayak, canoe and paddleboat rentals are available.
