Wildwood, FL – House Hunting and Super Moon

We have seen Bill and Dawn several times since we got to Wildwood, but I have forgotten to take a picture every time, even though I had the camera with me. Here is Andy with Bill and Dawn at Crispers for lunch.  We’ll see them again when we get to Marathon.

Sao got her annual wash and wax job while we were out to lunch.  I failed to capture the shine in this photograph.  Everything looks good except those fading vinyl decals.

I spotted this great cloud on our walk yesterday.  It was a jet contrail, for sure, as it was all across the sky.  I zoomed in on one section to show the great streamers being blown off the bottom.  Looks kinda like a beard or, maybe, jellyfish tentacles.

I don’t know why it is so hard to capture the Spanish Moss hanging from the Live Oaks trees, but I’ll keep trying.

We had a brief view of the Super Moon this evening, but it disappeared into the clouds.  Maybe we’ll get a better look tomorrow. You really can’t tell that it is bigger than normal just by looking up into the sky. It’s not THAT much bigger.  Beautiful none the less.

We spent most of the day house hunting with a local realtor.  I like her a lot.  I’m not so sure about The Villages.  There are a lot of good reasons why retirees are flocking here from all over.  The houses are nice, and there are many amenities for old folks, but the yards are so tiny.  Some not even large enough for a nice patio for outdoor eating.
