We met our friends Karla and Larry in Wildwood, Florida staying at Three Flags RV Resort and traveling a few miles to The Villages.

We had a wonderful time together;  a fun time listening to music, dining, shopping, touring and viewing wildlife at The Villages.

Back in December we met our friends for lunch, in the Lake Sumter Town Center, The Villages, Florida. After our delightful lunch we strolled along the broad walk on Lake Sumter and were entertained by these Ring-billed Gulls.

I was going through some photos I took last month and found these of some Ring-billed Gulls.

Stop and Enjoy the Journey!

First of three posting on The Villages –

Lake Sumter Town Square

If one tries to explain the uniqueness of The Villages in Florida to someone that has never visited there, it is completed inadequately.

Without visiting and experiencing The Villages for yourself, you can’t possibility appreciate or begin to understand “Florida’s Friendliest Hometown”. This statement is true – everyone we meet is friendly.

It is, as I have said, unique. However, it is much more – it is beautiful, inspiring and a true gift to the family that makes it their home.

It is a place for the active person with its many golf courses, walking and bicycling trails, numerous other outdoor activities, exercise and recreation facilities, clubs, town centers and one-stop-shopping for – well everything!

As we travel in Florida, I love to stop in Wildwood and spend a few days roaming around The Villages – walking in and out of the many shops, listening to music in the evening at the town square, enjoying a meal overlooking a lake, relaxing on a park bench watching the wildlife of the four or two legged variety, or taking photos (one of my very favorite activities).

Simply stated – “It makes my heart sing with joy to see so many people, of all ages, truly enjoying their life.”
