Micanopy is a small town just south of Gainesville (Univ. of Florida). Micanopy is noted around the world for its antique shops. This is the door to one of them. Micanopy is a great place to spend an afternoon or two...friendly folks, good food (and ice cream)...more photos will be forthcoming...

At the Spanish Springs hometown a few nights ago, a group concerned with the scourge of cancer was out and about raising funds to fight the disease.
You could even purchase a chance to win this fine golf cart, the better to wheel your way around the area!

When visiting the Spanish Springs hometown, we found the square packed with people enjoying some rousing country music. We also found this German Shepherd and determined country music bored him to tears. So, he went to sleep. Or maybe it was the two beers that put him to sleep?

Clermont is in central Florida, not far from Orlando. It is a small town, located on a beautiful lake. There is a major bicycle trail that follows the lake and also goes to Winter Garden and on to Orlando. Shortly after Christmas, we spent a day in Clermont, and rode northeast toward Winter Garden. The problem with the bike trail is that it has numerous, very steep hills. Yours truly thought they should have cut the hills down.
This little house is facing the lake at Clermont's lakefront park. You can see some Christmas decorations are still present. Lois Anne thought it most attractive and took this photo, while I tried to figure out how not to fall off my bike.
I think there was some discussion about a camel's disposition on Susie of Arabia's blog a few days ago. I don't know from camels, but this giraffe was most curious as to what the heck we were doing and he moseyed over to give us the "evil" eye!
Photo was taken a few years back at the Miami Zoo.
We've posted another version of this excursion boat previously, but we like the angle and the lighting in this shot. It is our understanding that you can take a tour of Lake Sumter on this boat but we have not done so. It is a rather small lake!

We've driven by this old Baptist church a number of times in the last 20 plus years and every time I thought I should take a photo of it. I finally did. A new building has been constructed behind this one fairly recently. It also find it interesting that it's called St. James, as Baptists generally don't recognize "saints."
