Crystal River Florida
The first cold front of the season has arrived and it feels wonderful!
It’s 62 degrees this morning and is only going to get into the upper 70’s today. We turned the a/c off last night, the Fantastic vent on with it set to draw air out. If you then open just one window, you get a tremendous breeze coming in that window. We had a wonderful breeze blowing in last night, but this morning it was a little chilly!
The cool air revved Baxter up (like he needed an excuse), but this morning he was chilly and wanted to cuddle. That was a treat because he is normally not much of a cuddler.
We are staying at Crystal Isles Rv Resort. It’s one of our Max Pass Thousand Trails parks. We had to pay a whopping $24 for our two week stay! Our first 30 days on the membership was free, now we have to pay $3.00 a night. That’s free in my book!
The sites are full hook-up, water, sewer, 50 amp electric and our satellite works!
The campground is somewhere near where I have the push pin. You can see there is lots of water around us. The Crystal River is a spring fed river that flows right out into the Gulf Of Mexico. We are 5 miles to the gulf, so plan on seeing lots of sunset photos!
We are staying at site number 17. It’s an upgraded site that normally we wouldn’t get with our Thousand Trails membership. A very nice lady at the campground named Regina, said they like to upgrade if possible! She couldn’t have been nicer.
We chose a site that’s on a canal leading to the river. Each canal site has it’s own private floating dock. Our site is pretty large with big back yard. We have a nice Phaeton on one side and no one on the other side.
The canal leads out to Crystal River and then to the Gulf of Mexico. In the winter this canal would be full of Manatee. We can launch our kayaks right from our back yard!
Lots of wildlife.
There is a basketball court, tennis court, volleyball, shuffleboard (of course), as well as a nice pool and hot tub, a boat launch, and a few cabins.
Our site is a large and fully paved. There are a few inside sites that are sandy and some are muddy due to recent rains. There are lots of trees, so that would be a consideration on larger rigs. There are a lot of rv’s that stay here and the owners come on the week-ends. There is a lot to do around this area and the canals are deepwater so larger boats are tied up along the docks.
There is a lot to do in this area and we’ll have plenty to keep us bus.
Today we intend to use our free tickets to Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park. Lost of pictures coming!
And one more cute kitten picture. "He looks like a little angel here, doesn’t he? Don’t let the picture fool you!
