I had such an awesome time on my journey through Florida. like i said earlier.. im starting some where in the middle of my trip. somewhere in this link is a web cam and any one can see how many Manatees come to this location each day. the day we went there were over 200. and im told that was a low number. but for me it was over whelming, in all my years of going to Fl. ive never been able to see these creatures..EVER! https://www.floridastateparks.org/sites/all/themes/adaptivetheme/at_core/scripts/html5.js?ojxf68
so it ws tiem to g=o visit my friends’ Daughter and G’kids. and after that..
so we moved on the the next bar, after all we didnt have to drive our hotel was just a few feet from this concourse
well that will do it for today, if you stopped.. and i hope you did:) i hope you liked what you saw.. and please have a great rest of the week…oh yeah and week end..since today is Thursday:)
Well Vacation is over, so here i sit..editing and reliving. the warmth of one of my favorite places…Key West,Florida. And…. even though it is winter.. ill take 60’ish weather any day over ZERO or worse yet..the negative numbers. ive been gone almost 2 weeks, vacation was cut a few days short due to a few problems at home, but thats life, at least i got away.
Generally, the structures date from 1886 to 1912. The basic features that distinguish the local architecture include wood-frame construction of one- to two-and-a-half-story structures set on foundation piers about three feet (one meter) above the ground. Exterior characteristics of the buildings are peaked “metal” roofs, horizontal wood siding, gingerbread trim, pastel shades of paint, side-hinged louvered shutters, covered porches (or balconies, galleries, or verandas) along the fronts of the structures, and wood lattice screens covering the area elevated by the piers.
Old Town is comparable to the “New Town” section of the island, which was created when the island of Key West was more than doubled in size via landfill. New Town, on the eastern part of the island, contains shopping centers, retail malls, residential areas, schools, ball parks, and Key West International Airport.
so.. with our further adieu im starting back wards:)
in the back ground there’s a shrimp trawler waiting for the winds to die down.
believe it or not, I’ve been going to this place for after hours food for over 20 years. …and lived to tell about it :).
I had a welcoming committee when I arrived at my friends condo. They vacation here often and were told there are 2 gators living in their little lake. They have never seen either one… I show up and wallaa there he is .
Pits been rather cold here, I don’t know much about northern Florida , ,have always vacationed in the southern parts. I think next year, I might wait till Feb. to come down here;) anyway, I’m making the most of it, going some where different every day. I’ll catch up with everyone when I get home, stay warm and take care.
Happy Friday every one. So Ive been home now for a few days, i thought id share some of my waterlogged photos here. I’m going to start from the last part of our trip, which was so awesome. we stayed in a Greek town. called Palm Harbor. and spent a great deal of time on the sponge docks, supposedly the sponge capital of the world. everything was run by the Greeks the food was deeelish, and we had seafood just a bout every chance we had.
