How are things in Michigan? I lived in Waterford Township north of Pontiac for two years when I was in high school many years ago. What a stunning place with all of the beautiful vegetation and lakes!
I live now in Central Florida, just north of Orlando and about midway between both coasts. We are mainly a bedroom community for Orlando and the attractions, with many quaint towns and villages and some fine gated retirement communities. Our claim to fame here are the more than 1,000 lakes, including a large chain of lakes that flow north via the St. Johns River to Jacksonville and the Atlantic Ocean. We also have the beautiful Ocala National Forest with many crystal clear bubbling springs that form river runs and provide a vast range of recreational opportunities. The lakes remind me very much of Waterford Township, only without all of the cold and snow, of course!
