Pizzeria in Spanish Springs

Located about a block from the town square in Spanish Springs, this pizzeria was jammed when we went by...maybe because of the welcoming chef?

How to beat a tornado

One of the problems with living in Florida is that we have an inordinate amount of tornadoes...then we have hurricanes and hurricanes usually bring especially violent tornadoes. Several areas in and near The Villages have been hit hard over the past several years.

But, lo and behold, help is on the way. Just give this company a call and get your tornado shelter. Your house may blow away but you'll be safe. I think.

The Arnold Palmer Legends Country Club

A look at the beautiful Arnold Palmer golf course with the sun setting in the west.

I believe this shows the 10th fairway.

This is the tee-off area.

On the left is the Arnold Palmer pro shop, and just beyond that the restaurant we showed a couple of days ago.

The Villages Polo Club

I've never seen a polo match, but polo is big in The Villages. The Villages has its own polo team and competes internationally. Not too long ago, they played a match in Barbados. Often, The Villages Polo Club hosts important international polo matches.

Arnold Palmer golf resort restaurant

The Arnold Palmer golf course, pro shop and restaurant are relatively new to the Villages. The facilities are upscale and located between the Spanish Springs and Lake Sumter Landing hometowns.

White fence in Lake Sumter Landing

Several businesses front Lake Sumter on the east side of the downtown square and they, in turn, are fronted by this white fence, which I thought quite attractive.
