We are staying at the Lake San Marino RV Resort. It is a combination mobile home and RV parking center for "active 55 year olds." And when we say "active," we mean it -- people all over the place biking, walking and on the go with various activities scheduled (dances, line-dancing, BBQs and breakfasts, swimming) at the Resort for the residents. We have been wondering since we arrived in Florida "where are all the old people?" (Not us -- I mean really old people!) To be frank, we haven't seen very many of them. If it weren't for the drugstores on each corner (Walgreens a block apart from each other with CVS Pharmacies across the street), we wouldn't know that we are in a state known for its old people. These drugstores are also open all night or at least until midnight.

peninsula to check out that area.
Today, we took a trip to a city called Ave Maria that our RV neighbors told us about. It was created by the owner of Dominoes Pizza starting in 2007. Dorothy, this one's for you -- you'd love it here. It is a Catholic city built around the Catholic Church. There is an Ave Bean shop (coffee), an Ave financial center, police and fire departments, a golfing area, its own University, and various shopping stores, including a large Publix (food chain in the south). Here are the pictures we took of Ave Maria.
