Clermont, Florida

We arrived at Lake Louise SP, Clermont, FL on Wednesday after a long and dusty trail of 46 miles. Susan's directions led us down interesting highways and byways, to the point of making a right hand turn into the SP.
At the counter, Susan and Clarence discuseds options about days of stay and location. This is a good SP, big  rig friendly and hot showers (low water pressure). It is best to use tank water. We are using our booster for our AT&T cell phones, as we only have 1 bar, but our Jet-pack (Verizon) clearly shows good 4G.

Here is a photo of one of the lakes we are next to (sandwiched between 2):

Our rig in a big pull thru. 

Greg, a long time friend who I had not seen in over 5 years, he invited us over to his house for a few days including da girls. Greg is the one on the left.

I met Greg, in Arizona many years ago when we both lived on Edwards Dr in Tempe. He was my neighbor 2 doors down. Funny story, I came home after work and I noticed this guy removing palm fronds from the front of the house to the alley, except he was doing it the hard way.  Anyway being the kind of guy I am  and having full size truck, I pulled up and started loading them up and removing them.  His comment was what are you doing? Easy answer, I am moving this stuff to the alley in the pickup. We have been friends ever since.

Now back to the present, Greg also scored us entrance to Universal Islands of Adventure:


Needless to say we had a great time and after a full day in the park, we were ready to head home at the end of Greg's work day.

Today (Sat.) Greg had a special surprise for us, so we all packed up (including da girls) and headed out to a small town called Apopka.  Oh by the way it is cloudy and rainy today.

Can you guess what the surprise is :

Safe travels from all of us.
