The Krate EH

This was a new one to us! Not a golf car, not a regular car, but more of a jalopy, or as noted a Krate. I don't know what the "EH" refers to. Notice also the Ontario license plates.

The sides are real wood, and it has a bike rack. A thing of beauty. And it was parked in plain sight in Lake Sumter Landing.

Canadian waterfalls

Orlando, Florida: A waterfalls at Epcot's Canada pavilion. I wonder if Canadians if this is somehow familiar to Canadians or if it's just a generic Canadian waterfalls?

The Veranda Restaurant

The Veranda Restaurant in Lake Sumter Landing appears to be invaded by golfers driving funky little golf cars.

Hiding out in Micanopy

We had a 1957 Olds exactly like this (same color, etc.) except ours was a 4-door hardtop. Magnificent car. All that chrome!

The Smythe Building - Spanish Springs

The P. B. Smythe building has nothing to do with P. B. Smythe, whoever that was. It was designed to appear about a hundred years old. In reality it's about ten years old and houses a commercial establishment. But it looks good.

Breaking up at Ormond Beach

This is called a gull tiff. The one on the right is saying "I'm outta here. I'm sick of you getting all the good little fishies. You can go it alone from now on!"

The gull on the left doesn't seem to care, however.

Christmas in June?

This photo was taken last appears the proprietors were getting a jump on the season.

By the Sea - Handcrafts by Ron and Carol (Cedar Key Seafood Festival)

Carol Wiggins, along with her son, Ron Marks, operates a business called By the Sea, which consists of beautiful handcrafts featuring nautical themes some of which are shown in the above photos. We were delighted to make their acquaintance at the Seafood Festival of last weekend.

They live in Port Richey, Florida, but love Cedar Key and visit the island frequently, and most importantly, they are great fans of this blog.
