While COVID-19 totally changed our plans for our 2020 kick off to full timing tour, we have managed to piece together what we hope to be an exciting second half of the year.
December 2 - December 16
We are staying a few more weeks right near where we used to live, in Longwood, Florida and right up the street from where my Mom lives. Plus, my sister is close by as are my niece and nephews and great niece and nephew! My bff, Jeff, is also in this area – so I’m sure we’ll get together too!
Wekiwa Springs State Park is a 7,000-acre (28 km2) Florida State Park in Apopka, Florida. It is located 20 minutes north of Orlando, off Interstate 4 at exit 94, near Altamonte Springs and Longwood. The park also contains the head water of the Wekiva River. It also serves as the headquarters of one of the state’s five AmeriCorps Florida State Parks chapters.
Although the springs are spelled Wekiwa Springs, the river and most subdivisions and streets in Seminole County use the Wekiva spelling. Wekiwa is the Creek word for a spring, but contrary to popular belief that Wekiva means “flowing water”, it was actually an alternate spelling used by developers.
