January in Gainesville

We've moved into an RV resort mid-way between Gainesville & Ocala.  The community is very much a "community" with planned activities (wood carving, exercise classes, sewing club, line dancing, bingo, movie nights, pot luck suppers and more).  Most of our neighbors are here for 6 months - and most consider themselves to be full-timers.  Thankfully, the park is beautiful, the people are very nice, and the parks around the area are interesting.  We find that we do miss the beaches, and will probably pick more beach locations if we are able to do this again next winter.

Gainesville is the home of the "Gators", and the campus is beautiful.  We've also explored the surrounding neighborhoods and have found some interesting sections.

We found a very old neighborhood with an historic Community Garden (for you Mary!)  but perhaps your planning board is afraid of a similar sculpture... I liked it.

And, there is an Occupy Gainesville movement..... but their hardships are pretty minimal when compared with the conditions faced by the folks camped out in Portland 

more photos will follow! love anita & fred
