These carts came around the corner fairly fast and thus my compositions aren't very good...I had to snap a picture quickly before they were gone. The carts are rather colorful and some are such to bring a smile to one's face. The dogs, however, are cuter than the carts!
Flamingo Gardens is a working citrus farm in Davie, Florida (South Florida) which includes a small zoo, walkways into swampy areas, lots of interesting animals, gift shop, cafe, and structures that go back many years. I thought the lamp post had photogenic qualities.
This is not one of my better images, but I thought it interesting. Evidently, there were fish scraps in the bottom of the boat, or something, which led to a confrontation between the pelican and a couple of turkey vultures.
You'll notice the second vulture on top of the boat watching the ongoing battle. We left shortly thereafter, so I don't know who won.

We sat on a corner for a long time taking photos of golf carts as they came around the square in Spanish Springs...many of them carried dogs...you'll see more of these tomorrow.
The other photos are random shots of various areas around the town square.

Golf carts are ubiquitous throughout The Villages. Many of them are specially made to reflect the views and backgrounds of the owners. Almost all are colorful. We have a series of photos to share over the next few days. You will find some of the pictures to be fun and funny.
As you drive into Cedar Key and arrive near the downtown area, you will see this nicely painted and decorated building on your left. I'm not sure what else goes on inside, but it appears that you can get married there. Just bring a marriage license.

This mural is found on a wall near the theater in Spanish Springs. Fortunately, this gentleman wandered into the scene just as I snapped the photo...you can see, perhaps, he was a bit startled when he realized he was in the picture, but smiled and waved and continued on his way.

For years, this bright red house has attracted photographers walking or riding through Cedar Key. Then, a couple of years ago, we noticed something had changed: it was no longer just a house, it had turned into a restaurant. We haven't eaten there yet, but no doubt will do a taste test sometime in the near future.
