Olivia's Coffee Shop - Eustis, Florida


A few years ago, we posted photos of Olivia's Coffee shop in Eustis.  Since then, the shop has moved to a new, larger location across the street.  But it's still a funky little restaurant with real character, good food and fine service.  And at times, musicians and poets will offer entertainment.

Olivia's website is here.

Peddler's Wagon - Eustis, Florida









The Peddler's Wagon, located in the chic little town of Eustis, Florida (about 1/2 way between Orlando and Ocala), is a fantastic gift shop, filled with all types of exotic and beautiful offerings.  The Christmas section, which takes up about 1/3rd of the store, has an incredible and extensive collection of items to help light up your Christmas with charm and color.

If you're ever in Eustis, stop by and drink in for yourself all this splendor, and say "Hello" to the man running things there, Kevin Jenness.

Fishing on the Swanee River - near Chiefland, Florida



And yes, this is the Swannee River of song - "Old Folks At Home."  It is Florida's State song.  In its original form, the lyrics were racist, so they were "expurgated" in 2008.

You can read all about it here.
