Canadian Car in Spanish Springs

I'm assuming it's a Canadian's car from the front plate. Note that it is attached to a large trailer. It is backed into a receiving dock at the relatively new Center for the Performing Arts in the Spanish Springs downtown. But what's a Canadian car with trailer doing in this neck of the woods. The mystery continues!

The First Baptist Church at The Villages

This is a relatively new structure housing The First Baptist Church at The Villages. It is located in the town of Summerfield, in the Spanish Springs area of The Villages. Across the street from this church is the Roman Catholic parish of St. Mark the Evangelist. Both are quite impressive facilities. Baptists and Catholics are well represented in The Villages.

Fishing Competition in Spanish Springs

"I can catch more fish than you can."

"Can not!"

"Can so!"

"Well it's no wonder what with that huge ol' honker in the middle of your head!"

Golf Cars all in a Row

The Villages, as most of my readers know, is a fast-growing adult (+55) community located in central Florida (about 70 miles northwest of Orlando and 30 miles south of Ocala).  

At present there are over 157,000 residents in three major sections:  Spanish Springs, Lake Sumter Landing and Brownwood.  Each of these sections has a "hometown," consisting of shops and restaurants, with a town square where music is performed live every evening of the year barring inclement weather.

Most residents have a golf car.  Many of these cars are customized to suit their owner's tastes.  Some run on gasoline, others on batteries.  The Villages provides golf car paths throughout its 20,000 acres!  Golf cars that run on gasoline may drive on local streets provided they have the proper safety equipment such as lights, turn signals, etc. 

There are so many golf cars running about the hundreds of miles in The Villages that it can be downright dangerous for bikers or pedestrians.  Remember that many of the residents are old and shouldn't be driving a bicycle much less a golf car.

The pictured golf cars are "plain Janes."  Most, if not all, are made by Yamaha. So far as I know, these are not sold to residents but rather to the numerous golf courses in The Villages.  This is their "storage lot" in Lake Sumter Landing.

The Villages website is here.
