Meaghan's parents Bill and Marg winter at the SanLan RV and Golf Resort in Lakeland FL. We were very glad to be able to line up a few days together and see them.
The campground is a very large one and getting ready for snowbird guests to arrive. We got a nice spot with plenty of space and a concrete patio. All the acres and acres of grass is mowed and the whole campground is well maintained.
One day we went out by ourselves and the next day we played with his weekly men's group at another course and also enjoyed it.
We took the time to hang out together and have dinner each evening, splitting our time between eating out and having dinner at each others places.
On Saturday we took a day trip to Bok Tower and Gardens near Lake Wales which were quite impressive. It was a nice 40 minute drive from Lakeland through some back roads.
stone sculptor Lee Lawrie to build a 205' tower with a 60-bell carillon.
The sculptor's other work in on display all around the country. He also worked on the Nebraska State Capitol which we visited late July, 2013.

Bok died in 1930 and is buried near the base of the tower.
It was a beautiful day to see the garden and towers and we especially liked the short concert. It was fun to share it with Marg and Bill.
Thanks for taking a look with us on the Roadrunner Chronicles.
