North Port Charlotte Regional Park

On Christmas Day 2007 - after having received a gift of three Champion plastic discs from Santa - the family & I went down to North Port to have Christmas dinner with my mom-in-law. So, I made a plan to hit the disc golf course that can be found down there. The kids went with - probably to avoid the boredom of hanging out at Grandma's - and we tackled the course.

Lakeview Park

I first visited Lakeview about three years ago, and was very intimidated by it.
