Our stay at Bee’s RV Resort has been an enjoyable one thus far. This is really a place where the snowbirds land when leaving the cold north for the sunny south. Most of the park are plots of 800+ square feet that you can buy and it’s yours to bring your RV whenever you want, whether it’s weekends, all winter or all year. The ones you own have pavers that that make your little area very nice. Across from where we are parked is a big open field. Yesterday a man was flying a remote control plane doing all sorts of stunts and I enjoyed watching him for a quite a while!
Our first night here we enjoyed dinner at the Honey Pot Eatery here at the park where they served all you can eat fried or baked fish, corn fritters, french fries, baked potatoes or sweet potatoes, coleslaw, cornbread and baked apple dessert. They have all you can eat dinners on Tuesday (chicken), Thursday (meat loaf and pot roast) and Friday is the fish night. This was our first time eating in an RV park restaurant and WE LIKED IT!
Saturday we did some sightseeing in Clermont and surrounding towns. Beautiful highways and everything is stretched out, not all bunched up. Lots of rolling hills, palm trees and pine trees. Everything looks new and well kept.
We saw a sign pointing the way to Lakeridge Winery and Vineyard and we pulled in to check it out. It’s a beautiful place with a sprawling lawn on the side for picnics and gatherings. We enjoyed the tour and wine tastings (which was all free) and browsed the shop downstairs before heading outside.
On the side a bandstand is set up with live music played from 1-4 pm. Lots of people were sitting in lawn chairs enjoying the music and eating. We could smell the food cooking off to the side and made our way over there.
Roy got a gyro and I got a vegetable plate.
We didn’t have our lawn chairs with us so I sat on the grass and enjoyed my meal while listening to the music. I hope to bring our chairs back with us one afternoon this week and sit for a spell enjoying the beauty of the surroundings there!
We next went for some more sightseeing and spotted an ice cream parlor (I’ve been looking for one for days) called Abracadabra Ice Cream Factory.
We’ve never been to one like this. They use a mixture of cream and sugar, add the ingredients you request to the mixture and then hit it with some nitrogen.
It looks like a wizard’s pot over flowing with smoke. They mixed it right in front of us and we could feel the coolness seeping out of the bowl as it rolled over towards us.
Roy got a Turtle which was ice cream, caramel, walnuts and chocolate. I had a banana split. It was absolutely the best tasting ice cream concoction I’ve ever had and quite a treat to get to watch our serving being made.
Today was a first for us, our first church service at an RV Park. When we saw it on the list of activities we decided to attend and how blessed we were for having done so. The Rogers family, 6 children (in their 20s) and their dad, sang several songs of Praise to God. They were accompanied by different types of instruments for each song. Each one of the children had a very special gift for singing and we enjoyed them immensely. The preached message was from 1 John and I have to say it was a special blessing to be able to worship God with fellow RVers. I will be keeping a eye out for other RV Park church services in the future.
The park has a Jam Session on the activities schedule from 2-4 so we may be strolling over there in a bit to check that out! We’re planning on going to Universal Studios and Universal Islands of Adventure this week along with making a stop at the Disney casting center to apply for whatever looks interesting when we get there. I’ll write more about all that soon!
Ya’ll come back, now ya’ hear!
