(Key Largo, FL)
We met with the Volunteer Coordinator, Elena, this morning at nine for our Orientation.
We learned all about the park, filled out lots of paperwork, watched some videos on the computer and received certificates for the training should we ever work another Florida state park.
Elena took us on a tour of the park for which I did not have my camera. I’ll have to go back and take lots of pictures.
There is one thing they do here that we think all parks or privately owned campgrounds should do. They gave us a local phone book for the Yellow Pages and a loose leaf binder with the brochures of all the local attractions and menus for the local restaurants. Also a list of local doctors, vets, churches with times, pharmacies, grocery stores, hardware stores,,,,just everything you could need or want.
After the three hour orientation was over we spent the rest of the day getting our place set up for an extended stay. Bob got our chairs out and set up the grill while I did inside things like take the rubberized matting out between the dishes and bowls and got out our things that make it home for us. We did all this in between visits to Facebook and Scrabble games and a couple hands of poker. We’re in no rush, we have the weekend off.
We think we’re gonna like it here!
