We had a great 10 days in the Lakes region of central Florida with my Uncle and Aunt, lots of laughs, great meals, biking every evening and a bit of laying around the pool too.  While there we cleaned and separated all our shells from Sanibel and the Keys,  I did a little drawing as well which was a challenge since I LOST MY GLASSES.  Yesterday we drove west along the panhandle and stopped a half dozen or so times when ever we saw something interesting.  My favorite stop was a little town called Sopchoppy, FL.  Who wouldn’t love a town that has a Worm Gruntin’ Festival?  It is next weekend so we are going to miss it but I will be putting it on the calendar for next year!

Spent today shelling on Mexico Beach which was beautiful, going back again tomorrow.  Baked oysters for lunch and a drive out to Cape San Blas.  This might be the nicest part of Florida.  Lots of old homes, not overdeveloped, really beautiful…don’t tell anyone!


So when we were in Fort Myers prior to the Keys, we found this great thrift shop that had only building materials!?!  A little odd, but I hit the mother lode there, found some great rusty saw blades, odd metal bits and a large wooden box full of square head nails…CHEAP!  I can hardly wait to get home an work now!
