Space X launch from home!

The upstairs rear balcony of our new home faces directly east towards the Kennedy Space Center, so when Space X launches from Florida – and if the sky is clear – we get a view. Today the sky was fabulously clear and we got a great view!

Halloween 2018 in Winter Garden

Winter Garden celebrates Halloween in the town center, with loads of stalls offering candy, games for children – and of course loads of costumes worn as much by the adults as by the children! Many downtown stores join in too, and now for us it’s all just an easy walk from our home.

Going to the town event does mean we miss out on anyone visiting our house, but it’s much more fun where we were! Here’s lots of photos …

 

As hinted in the last photo, City Hall also had a video projection of Halloween images; I recorded some (had to replace the audio, but the video is still good):

Lake Apopka from Oakland

At the annual Oakland Heritage & Wildlife Festival today we had lots of craft and other tents to visit, as well as the Llama …

We also got tickets for a boat ride on Lake Apopka, with very interesting talks about the ongoing recovery of the once very polluted lake – as well as great views!

A nice day out!

If you prefer, a video presentation!
