Another fun weekend here in Old Homosassa.  It’s time for the Homosassa Arts, Crafts, and Seafood festival!  We can smell the deep fryers all the way to our front porch!  I don’t often eat deep fried food (I don’t even allow a deep fryer in our house) but I do make an exception for the deep fried grouper that I’m going to get today.

Last weekend we rode our bikes to the Blues and BBQ at the Old Mill Museum.  We didn’t stay long since we brought Maggie along and NO DOGS are allowed.  Sigh.  But she was shaking from the noise, anyhow.  (I like to call that ‘the tremours’)  But the music was good and there was a good turnout.

So stop in at the Homosassa Arts, Crafts, and Seafood festival this weekend.  The Homosassa Civic Club puts it on and it always has some unique crafts and art.  You can have some deep-fried food while sitting on haybales.  Money raised from the event goes to scholarships for local kids and to the Homosassa Elementary school.  Fun and a great cause!

Chassahowitzka Salt Marsh Trail

Way back in September I posted about the Chassahowitzka Salt Marsh Trail.  I had planned on getting some bird pictures from the tower to share but the biting flies were so bad we quickly headed back out to civilization.  We recently tried again on an early cold morning and the flies were gone but the lone bird we saw was an anhinga.  Guess it was too early or too cold for birds–but the views were still spectacular!
