2014-05-24: In and Around Ocala, FL

Today's adventure brought us up to the Ocala, FL area. Though this time we had two of Candy's grandchildren (ages 12 & 9) with us. Our original plan was to go Geocaching and hiking up the Ocklawaha Visitors Center and Trail. The Ocklawaha Trail is located between the city of Ocala and the Ocala National Forest off State Road 40. That was the plan anyway...

After a short hike and just 2 caches later, the older child started complaining that his ankle was hurting. So back to the trailhead, the car, and plan B.

So we decided to stay along S.R. 40 and find some roadside caches. After about 10 of those, yeah you guessed it. The kids were bored. I did manage to pickup 4 ticks, Candy and the 9 year old each got one. Off to plan C...

I decided to drive over into Ocala to Scott Springs Park where they not only had a virtual cache, but they also had a playground. So after a short walk over to see the springs, we hit the playground for a while before making our way home.

Feeling like a kids again!
