We awoke to an overcast sky but still a beautiful day (July 27). I cannot remember the last time I was able to sleep in until 9:00 a.m.
After breakfast and conversation, we went to our friends’ church, Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, Fruitland Park, Florida. The building is small and gothic, but beautiful, built in the 19th century. It has a churchyard, bell, and a parish setting feel. We met the rector, who is part-time, the Parish Administrator, and a few of the parishioners, who were about to make a stained glass window.
Next, we visited many of the other areas of the Villages, particularly the Spanish section, which was one of the older areas of the community. Driving through the area you realize how geographically huge it is and they are currently expanding.
We spent the evening relaxing and chatting with some Brazilian friends who live opposite, Tom and Pam. The children spent the evening in the pool and watching DVDs.
Later in the night, we watched the Oscar-winning movie, “The King’s Speech.” Nice movie.
