On Friday night we were invited to a book signing in Spicer. Debbie Caylor, a local real estate agent has written a book called, “The Ultimate Guide to Buying and Selling Homes in the Willmar Area.” It was a fun night with piano music, good food and conversation. FYI – Debbie opened a new real […]
On Tuesday afternoon Dan & Andrew from B&J Lake Region Electric Spicer, MN came to start wiring the cabin. Dan and Andrew wired the cabin on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning. We’re thrilled to have them working for us-they’re both great guys with Lake Florida connections. The carpenters ask for good wood and the electricians […]
In the winter it’s fun to leave the resort and get out in the Spicer community to do something fun. This weekend is the beginning of Winterfest in Spicer. We went to the Glacial Ridge Winery for soup, wine , music and an Art Exhibit. Laurel & Jaime own the “Bead Jam” in New London, […]

The Lake Forida Sunset It’s been cloudy for many days so have not had a sunset to show you. Today was the day! The sunset always seems to slip away so fast! It won’t be long and the sunset won’t be behind the point behind the trees! Spring is coming!
Another cold day at Lake Florida and in Spicer, Minnesota. Once again the sunset was beautiful!
