Robin's Roost - rest your feathers!
Welcome to June, my siblings are gathering up in Michigan, I am seeking refuge in my air
conditioned house, kids are out of school, families are planning summer vacations, the Annual
Gathering is coming up right here in Florida, and we have a special event planned!
We have a group-sponsored event planned for Saturday, June 10, at Wakulla Springs. The group
will cover the cost of a boat ride and a treat afterwards from the old time soda fountain inside
the lodge. If we can figure out a way to do it, we will also cover the admission to the park, but
that may have to be on a reimbursement basis unless we can find some way to pre-pay. The group
will cover the cost for each member and one guest. You are welcome to bring as many people along
as you wish, just plan to pay for any you bring beyond the member(s) and one guest per member. We
plan to gather at 1, so you'll want to arrive a bit before. Probably the easiest place to meet is
in the parking area behind the lodge, depending on the weather we may be gathered in the shade. As
you plan your trip, bear in mind that admission to the park varies with the number of people in
the car and the mode of transportation (which is contributing to the challenge of pre-paying), it
is - $6 per car with 2-8 people inside; $4 single occupant vehicle; $2 for pedestrians, bikes, etc.
If you wish to come early and enjoy lunch at the restaurant in the Lodge, the food is excellent!
Once we have all gathered, we will head down to the dock for the boat ride and after the boat ride
we'll hit the soda fountain. RSVP's are not required, but are encouraged so we can get a rough
idea of the number of people to expect, try to pre-pay for some if we can, and generally plan
accordingly. This is a departure from our group-sponsored dinner and a movie, and we really hope
you can all come out and enjoy it with us!
This month also brings us the start of a new movie series! We will begin with the first of
The Hobbit series and work our way, one movie a month, through that set and on into the
Lord of the Rings series. Quite a departure from the Bond adventures we have been enjoying
(enduring?) for the past year! As always, popcorn will be provided and the laughs and fun are
pretty much guaranteed. Join us!
