It is Day 11, a Sunday, and already after 9 p.m.
I slept late, sipped coffee, spent time reading the newspapers. "New York Times," and "The Villages Daily Sun." After that, I headed to Katie Belle's in Spanish Springs, driving Putt-Putt down Morse Blvd.
Katie Belle's serves breakfast brunch, resident pass required, for $6.99. Imagine.
Seated at a table for one, with view of burning yule log movie, I dined on a healthy helping of scrambled eggs, tiny pork sausages, a slab of French toast topped in warm cherries, crisp bacon, fried chicken and biscuits, washed down with cup of coffee and glass of grapefruit juice. Oops, did I remember to mention bread pudding?
A walk across the street to Spanish Springs Square, I note artists selling their art work.
I spent time at the pool. Had the entire pool to myself. It was so delightful I hated to leave.
Dear diary, it's been a long day and I'm tired. From what? I have no idea. I mean how taxing is driving a golf cart and tipping a glass of Chardonnay?
Here's today's photo assignment. Hope you enjoy viewing them, as much as I have enjoyed snapping them.
Until this time next time.
See you in print,
Linda Della Donna
