The Old Concession Mill

If you need a quick bite to eat or something to drink, you can stop at the Old Concession Mill next to the theater in Lake Sumter Landing.

Pine Island Ridge, Davie, Florida

This is where our oldest daughter was married a few years ago.

A tree changes colors

It ain't Vermont, but we do get a bit of color on some trees in north central Florida as winter approaches!

The Rialto - Spanish Springs

Ryan Erisman is the owner/author of the The Villages Florida Book, which offers a plethora of information relative to The Villages. Mr. Erisman will be using our photos from time to time to give his readers another view of The Villages.

One-legged legstand

The one-legged legstand did not last long...a mighty wind blew up and almost blew this Egret off it's ropey perch!

Abandoned house - north central Florida

Enjoying drinks and the view

This place was known as the Captain's Table for years. Now it's changed hands and is called Coconuts. I know from personal experience it is a delightful spot to enjoy a frozen Margarita.

Barnes & Noble - Lake Sumter Landing

A night view of part of the front facade of the Barnes & Noble bookstore in Lake Sumter Landing...posterized.

Church of the unknown - north central Florida

Located at the intersection of two rural lanes in north central Florida, this church seems to have no identity. At least I couldn't find a name. Probably Baptist. I thought it was cute and I especially liked the bell off to the left.

Another photog wandering about Cedar Key

I don't know this person. She was crouched down on the pier shooting upward at the boat. Probably trying for an artsy shot. Then she left, which was a good thing, or I would have had to chase her off. I mean, c'mon, I was trying to take a picture, too! ;-) I never saw her again.

Go "click" on the pic and it will get bigger.

The Sabal Trust Company (Lake Sumer Landing)

Would you entrust your financial security to a trust company that is located in what appears to be a replica of an old school building? Of course! It's a beautiful building, located in downtown Lake Sumter Landing. I'd go inside but I'm afraid I'd learn something.

Frog's Landing (on the Dock)

The last time we were in Cedar Key, the Frog's Landing was doing a booming business! The restaurant has a mostly seafood menu that looks very good. They also serve a drink called a "frogarita," which I intend to try the next time we're in town.
