Unlike the rest of our nation, we have been enjoying unusually warm weather here in Florida, until the last couple of days. Last week we hiked Booker Creek Preserve, a wonderful wilderness area of pine flats and wetlands. We certainly saw a lot of cypress and tupelo trees.

My daughter Melissa and I have explored many parks in the central western area of Florida for her son Nathan. We have been pleasantly surprised that there are so many of them with innovative play equipment suitable for the young as well as the older child. That does seem a bit strange for a state whose majority population are senior citizens! What is equally interesting is that the play equipment varies from park to park. We chose to go to Largo park last Saturday because it offers a holiday train for little Nathan. We had also learned awhile back, when attending Prince of Peace Lutheran church, that the park was going to feature a Bethlehem village for the Christmas activities that evening.
