Quoted From A Fellow Traveler:

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

Campground 10th Anniversary

The Resort had it's tenth anniversary
They had some pic's of the land prior to breaking ground, and during construction.
They also had door prizes but we didn't win anything....bummer!
Here's the group at our table

There were over two hundred that attended the dinner.

There was so much food....everyone brought a side dish and the resort supplied chicken, pork, and spiral ham. Oh yea, there was also cake! Everyone had a great time and it all ended with a group picture.

Titusville Air Show

We had an air show in the area so we had to check it out.....I love those war birds.

A beautiful P-51 Mustang. This guy was giving 30 minute rides for $1995.00. That's correct just under two grand for 30 minutes, he must be nuts!

The plane is still one of my favorites.

Aren't these war bird great!

Another P-51

This is a Vultee BT-13A
The B25 was the bomber used in the Doolittle Raid

They even had some WWI planes like this beauty, the problem is that they didn't always have any discriptions of what they were.

I did get a kick out of this warning label.....oops!

Prior to the P-51 Mustang, there was the P-40

Some interesting info on the P-40

Flying close formation.

Motorcycle Parade

The campground had a motorcycle parade and lunch to support the local SPCA.
Casey heard the motorcycles coming and wanted to get a good view.
This woman is riding the Harley that won the best bike contest.GoldwingHarley
GoldwingThis is a BMW 1300 that was custom built by the owner. The wheels on the bike are from a Mini Cooper. Due to the width of the wheels, the front fork had to be widened. The sidecar was also hand built by the owner.

Zippity Do Da

Today's trip took us to Florida EcoSafaris to do some Ziplining.
In order to get to the Zipline, we had to ride in this swamp buggy......cool!

After about a ten minute ride through a 4700 acre estate,

And a climb up a tower of approx. seven stories, we were ready for the first step. Joyce has a fear of heights but this was her idea so we let her go first.
A view from the tower, we first had to walk the bridge to where Joyce stared her first zip.And there she goes!I went first on the next zip so I could get a shot of her leaving. Let me tell you that it is a funny feeling when you take that first step....wow!We had to walk another bridge as we were coming to the end of the seven zips. Getting closer to the ground.
Would I do it again..........in a minute. They are putting in a roller coaster zip line where you will be suspended from under a rail that will take you up through a series of loops and twist just like a roller coaster.
