A playground all their own

LECANTO — Alec Watson raced from the swings to the padded play area, where ring-toss and hula-hoops beckoned.

The look on his face said it all.

“I love it!” he shouted.

His grandfather, Lewis Smith, said Alec was really enjoying himself.

“I can’t get him inside,” he said.
