Our day started bright and early today. I was up at 5am, like I usually am, to get last minute preparations done before leaving to Georgia. We were on the road by 6am and had visions of a swift and efficient drive. No such luck. Along the way, we hit a lot of traffic, stopped 5 times to either eat or go to the bathroom and learned quickly that Florida is the state that never runs out of road. We finally got in to our hotel, The Henderson Village, in Perry at 4pm. We saw a very cool SUV towing an even cooler car on the way up, see below.
As we pulled into the manicured area surrounding our bed & breakfast, we were thoroughly impressed. The Henderson Village in a collection of cottages and cabin-type houses spread out over 20 acres of perfectly cared for land. We checked in and were very happy to be told that our cabin was waiting for us. We unloaded what felt like weeks worth of luggage and settled in to our cabin. Orso patiently waited ON THE BED while we unpacked, see below.
After making sure everything was in its place, we gave Orso what he had patiently been waiting for – PLAY TIME! We took him out to this open area behind our cabin with a tow and a tug and let him go wild. The grass was perfect and the soil was so soft – so different than what we get in Miami. Our ground is not so forgiving. Orso sensed the difference too and it showed in how he was playing; he turned into a wild child out there! Below are a bunch of photos of Orso playing fetch and tug behind our cabin. Check out the gorgeous scenery!
After playtime, we showered, let Orso rest for a little while, and headed out to grab some dinner. We ended up at Applebee’s, where our handler, Jessie, met up with us upon her arrival in Perry. We also ran into some Corso friends – Alexia & Gabriel – who came all the way from San Francisco for the shows. It was an early night for us. We headed back to the B&B, fed Orso some dinner, and crashed into bed from exhaustion. Tomorrow is going to be a stressful morning… I can feel it!
