The Villages, Florida

Joe Gregorio

I took a couple of days off work and we drove down to Florida to visit family in "The Villages", a 55+ golf cart community that currently has about 50,000 residents.

That is not a typo. Check out the wikipedia entries

On Monday we went out to feed the ducks at a nearby pond, but well fed by everyone else, they weren't interested in our bread. Instead the bread was attacked from below by the fish in the pond, which wasn't very interesting, that is, until a local heron came over and started feasting on the fish we'd attracted. There's nothing like the sight of a still living fish wiggling down the throat of a heron to make a young boy's day.
