Spending the Winter at Haines Creek RV Village
We are spending the winter at a small, but nice rv park in Leesburg, FL called Haines Creek RV Village which offers some really nice features. Located fairly close (about 3 miles) to shopping and attractions in the Leesburg area, it is right on the bank of Haines Creek -- which is really a small, but navigable river. As you can see, this is a beautiful river that connects Lake Eustis and Lake Griffin and is about 6 miles long. It even has a lock controlling the flow of the water between the lakes.
The resort has a 600' long dock running along the river that is a great place to walk and watch the wildlife. Rick has tried some fishing, but not much success as yet.
Since my parents have a home in a retirement community on the river fairly close to us, we became partners in a nice pontoon boat. Here I am running the boat down Haines Creek as we head toward Lake Eustis.
Of course, Cody, the photo dog, gets to come along and really seems to enjoy the boat. There are a number of restaurants available to travel to by boat, so it is a fun experience for everyone.
We are looking forward to spending the winter exploring the Leesburg area of central Florida.
