It is just fun to be able to drive a golf cart wherever you need to go within The Villages. Take today for example. I needed to pick up some rental papers from the main rental office in Lake Sumter Village. According to The Villages GPS app, it’s a 5 mile drive via golf cart.
It was about 10am or so and I had been out with the dogs and it wasn’t too hot. So I made the choice to drive the golf cart over. Unfortunately, I didn’t plan ahead for the second half of my mission. It was a very comfortable and pleasant drive over. One of those days when everything just seems to be right. I got my business done at the sales office, had lunch at Panera Bread and then headed back home.
As I said before, the weather on the trip to Lake Sumter was very nice. The weather on the way back was similar to what I would imagine hell feels like. Even with the heat though, it was still fun. Plus, environmentally speaking, I’m sure I saved a penguin or something by driving the cart instead of the car. Actually, a polar bear probably ate the penguin that I may have saved, so all of my efforts were for nothing.
Oh well. If you ever come and stay at the Villages, make sure you have a golf cart. You’ll be glad you did.
