Sertoma Youth Ranch is a campground that gives free camping to kids in the area and the ranch holds a bluegrass festival twice a year to get money for the ranch.

Mar 26, 2016 - ANOTHER FUN DAY

We went up to Inverness to ride our bikes on the Withlacoochee state bike trail that runs over 46 miles and part of this trail runs in down town Inverness. We like to ride our bikes and at the same time we can go geocaching down the bike path which has a cache about every 1/10 of a mile. We also got to leave the bike trail to ride about 1/2 mile to a very nice Earthcache that was on a Lake. We had a fun day on the bike path and after the ride we went out to eat at a nice little place to eat in town before going back to the bluegrass show.

Mar 25, 2016 - What shall we do today

We get to walk up the road to the top of the hill, where the land owner has a few horses and cows on his ranch. After a visit to say hi to the horses , we walked back down to our camp site to have a seat around the campfire and get to talk with some friends. Later in the day we went up to the music show to see and listen to a good music and talk with a few friends. Glad we were under the roof because the rain came down for just a few minutes for the day and then it was all over with until the next day.
