Friday Meanderings

Big stuff going on the Nature Coast!

This Saturday is the last open house for this season at Three Sisters Springs.  Park at King’s Plaza and jump on the free bus to the park.   Or you can do as Terry and I do–park at the plaza directly across the street from the Three Sisters Springs driveway and walk the 1/2 mile back.  I don’t know the name of that shopping center but there is a Sherwin Williams on the one end.

Well worth the visit.  Might not be manatees there because it’s supposed to be 80 degrees!  Zowie!  Hot for February!

Manatees at the January open house.

But the really BIG event is the “Cocktail Hour for the Tower” at the Homosassa Civic Center.  This will be a huge fund raiser for the painting of the Old Homosassa Water Tower.  Put on by the Old Homosassa Heritage Council, there will be a gourmet dinner, dessert bar, music by Chuck Andrews, a Chinese raffle, and a silent auction.  We originally hoped to sell 50 tickets–the group has sold 68!  Tickets are SOLD OUT!

Yes.  That water tower will be painted this year.  And then we can move on to the museum!


And to our next big event.

The 2nd Annual Old Homosassa Community Day!

April 7th, 2018

This year the American Legion 166 is holding a pig roast.  HOMOSASSA GOES HOG WILD!  Proceeds going to their building fund.

The ukulele group will be performing on the stage.  We are called the Homosassa Ukers now.  Funny? No?  (Well we thought it was funny.) There will also be open mic–anyone can get up on stage and sing, dance, model, whatever.

Watson’s Art Gallery is putting together an Art and Farmers Market.  Only $20 a booth.

There will be a HUGE yard sale in the Homosassa Civic Center–all proceeds going to paint that tower!

Non-profit community groups will also have booths set up with info.


I’m sure I’ll be writing a lot more about that in the coming weeks.

Have a great weekend!
