Relocated



My lovely wife and I headed out from Lucie Lock Campground and moved up the road back to the Ocala National Forest. We are trying a new campground for us, Clearwater Lake. First observation, it isn't much of a lake. More like an ambitious puddle. Okay, that's a bit of an exaggeration. It is big enough to have a swimming beach, so there is that.

My lovely wife has been doing the campground booking. A lot of times there are photos of what the individual sites look like. She picked a huge site that gets more sun than most of them. That's important when running on solar energy.

We just got here, but there are a few things we noticed right off, besides the size of the lake. The bathhouse is large, in excellent condition and very clean. The whole campground appears to be very well maintained. That's a credit to the people who are running the place. Someone actually cares.

I expected a campground around a lake to be buggy. Surprisingly, it's not that bad. Maybe it's a good day and they will come out in force later. Time will tell. We are here with the weekend crowd. That mean's there's a lot of a locals. My guess is that by Sunday night the place will be nearly empty.

We are booked in here for a about week. After that, we aren't sure where we will go. We have some days booked at the end of the month on the Treasure Coast. What happens between our stay here and going there is anyone's guess.

  1. Enjoy the good weather while you can. It's pretty soggy here in GA.

    1. We'll probably visit GA, but not until the weather gets better there.

  3. Long time reader, first time commenter. I live near juniper springs, (moss bluff) the cool temps knock the biting insects down considerably. Some still come out right after dusk but this is a nice time to be in the woods. I enjoy reading of your doins...

    1. Thank you Annie! Always welcome to comment. We really lucked out with the bug situation here. I'm still recovering from all the bug bites I got in St. Lucie. They did not have the killing frost that knocked the bugs back around here. This is a beautiful area.
