Situated on the banks of the legendary Swanee River, this center honors the memory of American composer Stephen Foster, who wrote "Old Folks at Home," the song that made the river famous. The museum features exhibits about Foster's most famous songs and his music can be heard emanating from the park's 97-bell carillon throughout the day. In Craft Square, visitors can watch demonstrations of quilting, blacksmithing, stain glass making, and other crafts, or visit the gift shop. Hiking, bicycling, canoeing, and wildlife viewing are popular activities here. Miles of trails wind through some of the most scenic areas of North Florida.
Here is a little video about the park that I found on the internet.

We have made it to White Springs, Florida where we are staying at the Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park Campground for 2 weeks, then out for a week and back for 2 more weeks. It is one our favorite state parks in Florida and this will be the longest we have ever stayed here. The campground has about 45 sites with electric & water... Almost all of them can accomodate large rigs but due to the trees it is very hard to get TV in a lot of them without a portable dish. Both AT&T and Verizon phone service works well in the park and our Verizon Air Card is working great!

We arrived Saturday on my daughters birthday. We went to lunch down in Historic Dunedin at the Broadway Cafe'. I had a yummy Reuben which was really good but did not compare to Carnegie's in NYC! LOL We then went to Jarred's where my daughter bought me a beautiful charm for the Pandora bracelet she got me for Christmas. I bought her a Pandora for her birthday so now we'll be able to have fun buying charms for each other on special occasions.
Sunday we attended a BIG Graduation party for my nephew Ryan who graduated on Saturday from High School. My sister-in-law outdid herself with a great meal of Pull Pork sandwiches, Cowboy Beans, Coleslaw and a lot of yummy appetizers... then a Congratulations cake!
Monday we took the twin grandsons to daycare and then our daughter & us went to IHOP for breakfast... had my favorite MultiGrain Pecan Pancakes. After that I went and had my eye exam so I could get some contacts. They changed a little but not to much and he said my itchy eyes were from allergies in the air. We went back to her house where I did some laundry and then it was time to pick up the kids... That evening we played WII.
Tuesday we had a really busy day... Took Tiffy to the groomers and after 4 weeks out in the woods she needed it badly. I have been having a lot of pain in both my knees so I called my Ortho doctor and begged him to see me. He took xrays and told me my left knee was really bad and the right one is beginning to go too. So he gave me Cortisone shots in both knees and is scheduling a knee replacement in the left knee in mid-October. They are feeling much better since the shots... Then we were off to pick up a new C-Pap machine for my honey and to the drugstore for prescriptions... Whew!!! We went home and picked up my daughter and took her to our favorite Mexican place for lunch!
Wednesday was the twins graduation and what a nice party the school threw for them after they graduated. With a pizza party & ice cream after... They sang songs and showed us all their art!
After that we all went to Sonny's Real Pit BBQ for lunch... GREAT day!
That afternoon we drove the 230 miles back to Lake City where all was well with Tassie our motorhome. They did tell us that Monday they had a really big storm and a small tornado went down 90 a short ways which took some trees down. Thank goodness no damage at our place!
Yesterday I went to my cousins house and we made body lotion and soap in the same scent we did the lotion. I had a lot of fun doing that with her and her daughter Christal.
Have Fun, Travel Safe & Stay Healthy!!!
