Hi, I'm Bonnie!
I am a retired school teacher and my husband is a farmer. We have three children, two of whom are still in University and our oldest who is married and they have two children.
What we like most about our Florida home is having four generations all staying together there. Also, because our family is quite spread out, vactioning here allows us to all be together under one roof which makes my heart happy! :)
Of course, getting a little break from our snow in the winter isn't a bad thing either!
My husband's favourite thing to do here is going to the water parks. My favourite is roller-coastering, preferably in the front row! We also love going to the beach and going on dolphin-watching tours. We have been to Nascar (Daytona 500), professional baseball during spring training (New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays), professional hockey when our beloved Winnipeg Jets come to Tampa to play, and even took in a pro basketball game when we went to see the Orlando Magic in action.
We also like going to Old Town on a Friday or Saturday night to take in the live entertainment and admire the classic cars. And go-karting is a family favourite activity.
Biking is another favourite and we have thoroughly enjoyed the West Orange Trail. There is a magnificent tree along this trail that we always stop to admire. And we love stopping for lunch in Winter Garden with all its quaint little shops and sidewalk cafes. We plan to check out the Seminole trail next.
There is really an endless variety of things to do and we look forward to exhausting all the possibilities throughout the years to come. We hope you find some favourites of your own while you are here!
