Payne's Prairie State Park Recap By Lynn Morri February 2018
Friday night we met for Meet & Greet at Denise and Robert's campsite. The weather was perfect and group size was great for good conversation. Saturday some of us went into town to 2 different Walmarts that did not exist. Rural King became our new favorite store as it carries everything from free popcorn and coffee to guns, food, furniture and a guinea pig/chicken to go. Later, we went bike riding and saw 2 wild stallions (from the top of the tower) and an eagle by it's nest on the trail. Saturday night Denise and Robert hosted a Valentine's day themed potluck. Food was in abundance as usual - ham, mashed potatoes, green beans, salad, corn bread and many desserts. We sat around the fire enjoying the laser lights that Robert provided. Sunday we listened to a talk at the visitors center by a botanist master naturalist. Later we went into town to explore Micanopy where some of "Doc Hollywood," starring Michael J Fox was filmed. Sunday evening we gathered at Lynn and Willie's campsite to finish off leftovers/snacks, chit-chat and plan for next month's potluck. We enjoyed the company, conversation and had tons of laughs.
Looking forward to it all again next month.
Hope to see you all there!
