Amazingly, the temp was 50 when we got up! Hitching up went quicker than usual! We drove north through a lot of agricultural area, including some sugar cane that was being harvested. And there are some orchards and truck farms, but we didn't take the time to stop, and a lot were closed since it's Sunday.
We're staying at a place called Ortona South, an Army Corps of Engineers (COE) property on the Caloosahatchee Canal. There's a lock and dam here, so we have seen a few boats passing through. The canal starts on the SW corner of Lake Okechobee and runs over to Fort Meyers and into the gulf. The canal system was built by the COE and is maintained by them, along with a campground here and there. We are near the town of LaBelle. After walking around the park, we found out we could get on wifi, and that was good to catch up on a few things. Like catching up on this blog after 6 days away, which really puts me behind. But Bob keeps some brief notes every day, and I use those and the pictures to remember what to write! And it's good to reflect back on what has been happening. We can also catch up on news from all over, which is bittersweet.
I've been trying out a new-to-me textile art. I'm block printing small designs onto fabric. I carve my own stamps, which are quite rudimentary at this stage! Then I ink the stamp and put it on the fabric. Just trying out something different to see what I can do with it and whether it's even something I like! Sometimes, I get an idea of using other designs and I might like it or might not. That's what my grandson Jack says! Ask him if it's going to snow today and he will say "Might, might not". A true weatherman!
I think this stamping needs more testing before I can say "might not".
