Going to my parents' house in Crystal River and watching fireworks over King's Bay. Cookout during the day, play with Michael (the beautiful 9 month old boy in my Avatar) in the wading pool, just kick back and take it easy. :boat:So, what is everyone doing for July 4th? My daughters birthday is on the 1st so we are just getting together with family and friends to celebrate both her birthday and the holiday.
I'm trying to convince her that the fireworks are in her honor :whistling2:
Very nice. If you like coastal living, it's a great place. Not nearly as crowded as the "other" coast of FL, or further south on the W. coast of FL. I'd live there, if I didn't live here.
I've heard some disturbing things about the ONF lately...they're really cracking down on the squatters, homeless, and transients living there in some of the campgrounds. Said they've found something like 20 meth labs in the past year, including one that blew up!Today, sealed my asphalt Drive. 4100 sqft :sad: My Father in Law has a concession trailer with cotton candy machines and shave ice. I got roped again into helping him at the 4th of July festivities. Seems I never get to take a break.
Thad, Ocala is cool. Wifes Family lives in the National Forest there on a Lake. We go from time to time. Great relaxing.
Well, there are certainly nice ares of the ONF. It is the most visited national forest in the SE. But there are many unregulated campgrounds/campsites where squatters and the like live. They're working to clean things up and get rid of the drugs and crime that are apparently very common in some areas of the ONFDefinitley money there. Lexington has just won a suit because Ocala was claiming "Horse Capital Of The World". Lexingto without a doubt has that title. But Ocala does have plenty of that horse money.
I heard that stuff about the OCN also. Because I only visit from time to time, I couldn't say I know first hand.
Yeah, they had fireworks in Gainesville last night, but we stayed home and watched the ******** across the lake fire theirs off instead.We had July 4th on July 3rd this year. My community had a big fireworks display tonight which actually worked out pretty well.
Anyone else's area do this?
