Well it was bound to happen. We left Macon in cloud and fog this morning but the temps were still low 60s. We decided to head south of the Villages to a spot Richard had always wanted to try out. Passed by peanut fields and pecan orchards on the way to Tifton where we had to stop at Adcocks for Richard's peanut fix plus pecans, salsas, relishes etc. We stopped at the Florida Welcome Centre for our free glass of juice and a picture of a palm tree. Stopped at Gainesville for a Wendy's cheeseburger and gas. Just as we exited for the Florida Turnpike the sun came out and it got really warm. Used the Jag's navigation system to find our destination. Passed all the Orlando attractions and the airport where we'll be taking our guests. Arrived just after 3 pm and got checked in. Managed to get a swim in one of the two pools here, as well as a whirlpool, and noticed that the thermometer in the sun was 92 degrees. It will be nice to stop for a couple of days before returning to the Villages. Ate dinner outside tonight next to one of the pools at Cheeks - the bar - and the only on-site restaurant open tonight. Unfortunately our neighbour got home just as we returned to our room after dinner and we can hear his telephone conversation through the walls!
