Ronnie Van Zant Park in Lake Asbury, Green Cove Springs Florida: A Great Place To Play! Located in Green Cove Springs, in the Lake Asbury area. (Check out the map below) This fun park is within a mile, mile and a half from the neighborhoods listed below the slideshow. Jump on your bike, walk or jump in the car for some fun in the sun.  Wanna shoot some hoops? You're covered! Tennis anyone? Yep, you guessed it, tennis courts await you. Beach volleyball, without the beach, but with plenty of sand. There's a baseball field and empty fields to fly a kite, launch a rocket. Not a big rocket, we're not sending anyone into space from here. :) Clay County Pal football practices at the park too, which makes it convenient for the folks who live nearby. My daughter's 3v3 team has practiced at the p...

How Long Do I Have To Put Up With Construction on Henley Road in Lake Asbury Green Cove Springs, Florida???  Construction started in December 2011, so right now, we are three months into it. I have to admit, orange is NOT my favorite color at all, so I'm already tired of seeing the orange cones. :) The contract for this project is for two years, but the construction company is really pushing for a year and 6 months. I'm pushing for that too! If you're curious or you're just nosy like I am, and want to know what they are doing, the Clay County Florida Gov't website has a drawing of the plans.           There have been changes made. Instead of a median as you will see in the drawings, there will be an open center lane. Also some of the pond locations have changed. If you want more info, y...

Lake Asbury, Green Cove Springs, Florida Lake Asbury offers multiple lifestyles, which is different than most cookie cutter neighborhoods. If you're looking for waterfront homes, there are 3 lakes, with about 430 properties. One lake (Lake Ryan) is for paddle boats and canoes, the other two lakes, (Lake Asbury & South Lake) you can enjoy boats and jet skis. Only the lake owners have access to the boat ramps on these two lakes.  There are also properties zoned for horses for the equestrian folks. What all the lots have in common are some elbow room. Some properties start at 1/4 acre, but those are rare, the majority are 1 acre or more, some even at 5 acres and up.         Inside the Lake Asbury neighborhood is the local fire dept, that's gotta make you feel a little better, knowing those...

What do you scream, I scream, we all scream for? You got it, Ice cream! I know, that was corny. :) Anyway, I wanted to just put the spot light out there on my favorite ice cream shop, Just Chillin', which is a mom and pops kind of place, and I love those types of businesses. Yes it's December, but we're in Florida and we can enjoy ice cream all year round! Here's a little of what they have: THE BEST Hot Chocolate in Green Cove Springs (I mention that first since it is December) Ice Cream (I know, duh) Smoothies Sundaes Milkshakes Hot Chocolate Floats (I REALLY love their hot chocolate) The owner, Jennifer, makes the visit even better, just by her warm personality and the fact that she actually remembers what we order, although I do like to change it up to keep her on her toes.

    In this post we are going to outline 3 big do’s and don’ts to remember while going through the USDA home buying process in Florida. The items outlined below actually apply to all home loans (FHA Home Loan, Conventional Loans, etc ) not just USDA home loans.   First we will highlight the things you DO NOT want to do while going through the USDA application/home buying process.   1. Do NOT open any new credit account. That new car purchase or furniture purchase will have to wait until your home purchase is closed and final.  Doing something like this can change many variables in your USDA pre approval. This includes your qualifying debt to income ratios (how much house you qualify for) credit score, etc. Not only can the new debt impact your credit scores, but also the new credit scor...
