Friday Meanderings

Just some random photos I snapped in the past week…

monkey bar
What is left of Riverside’s Monkey Bar. I think the kitchen is still there on the second floor. The new place is supposed to be open before scallop season–July 1st.


palm trees

Everytime I walk by this bottlebrush tree I get swooped by hummingbirds. Unless I have a camera with me. Hummingbirds do not like the paparazzi!
I don’t often take a photo that shows the mist rising from the canal. The light was perfect and there was an anhinga posing for me!

I’m off to North Dakota on Monday.  I know.  It’s cold. It could snow. Everyone has already told me.  Numerous times.

But, anyhow, next week there may be a few snaps of the grandkids!

Have a great weekend,


Friday Meanderings

Good Day!

I haven’t been home much over the past few weeks.  Busy Busy Busy.  By the time I get home in the evening, all I want is a glass of wine. (or 2 or 3 or 4)

But I have been taking snaps.  With my iPhone.

Went to the Ozello Chili Cook off and stopped at BackWater Fins for a bowl of blue crab chowder. (it it the BEST chowder ever!) Thought the license number on this boat was kinda clever!
Granddaughter Courtney is on a hockey team and skates at the same ice rink that the Women’s Olympic team trains at.

Friday Meanderings
Just a couple snaps of the view Thursday evening.

And finally some damn squirrels pics.  They suddenly set off the squirrel alarm.  (If you live with squirrels, you know what that is)  They were all pretending to be statues while the alarm sounded.  Usually it means there is an owl, hawk, or cat in the yard.  I couldn’t spot anything.

Freeze tag!

Did find two huge squirrel nests in the trees.

Their hi pitched squeals went on for awhile. Then I realized that the news was on and they had just heard about Putin’s new nuclear weapons and saw the rendering on TV of the bombs dropping on Tampa Bay.  So this was the new squirrel NUCLEAR alarm drill.  No owls, cats, or hawks.  Just practicing.

Luminary Art Walk tonight.  Shrimpapalooza on the 24th.  Old Homosassa Community Day on April 7th.

Did you read my posting on

Have a great weekend!

Happy Last Day of March!

We’ve had some great weather over the past week.  Even took the boat out a couple times.


Had a baby otter on the dock the other day.  Otters “peep” to keep in contact with each other.  This one was peeping away.  Couldn’t find mama.  After a couple of minutes, Mama and another baby otter showed up.  I didn’t get close enough to get really good photos.  I figured Mama just might be ferocious with two babies in tow.



They hung out for awhile and then headed down the kayak ramp.

So cute.  But they can be mean and destructive.  I’ve heard of them completely destroying seats on boats if they get on. Terry checked out the kayaks just in case they were living in there and all was okay!

A little bit of news here, I’m blogging for now.  On Tuesdays I will be putting up news of Old Homosassa on that website.  Kind of a Friday Meanderings on Tuesday!

Okay, I’ve got a house full of company and a kitchen full of dirty dishes so I gotta go!

Have a great weekend!
