On Saturday John, Sandra, Jeff and I parted company, for them to return home and for us to head back north to our girls in Ocala. We are back at the campground where we stayed when we first came to Florida 3 weeks ago. This time they've put us on a larger site so that we didn't have to unhook the tow dolly. We'll be here 4 nights and will be saved having to rehook that when we load the car up on Wednesday. Every little bit helps!
Sunday we picked the girls up and started out on our annual trip to the town of Micanopy. Kristy took us there several years ago and ever since we can't visit Ocala without spending a day in Micanopy, about an hour north. It is Jeff's favorite place; there is an old southern home with porches all the way around and rocking chairs on the porches that he loves
While Kim, Kristy and I checked out the shops Jeff wandered over to the Episcopal church (of course!), spoke to a few parishioners and took some pictures. This is the story he got: Back in the 1840's an Episcopal Curch was established in Micanopy but in 1910 it was closed down and the building was torn down. In the 1920's the Presbyterians built a church in town and worshipped there until the mid 1960's when their services stopped. Then the Episcopalians moved back into town and purchased the Presbyterian Church where they have been going strong ever since. As you can see by looking at the pictures, not much has changed since the Presbyterians built it, (other than the red doors). The Episcopalians may get down but never out!
