Steppin' out wif' another Gent

I had a date last Saturday. Not wif' Uncle.

A fella I knows kindly squired me around an' ole Floridy town on the gulf coast. We had us the finest time--despite the fierce heat.

Heah is some of what we seen.



I cain't recommend this place-- best that I can tell ya is that it is shure colorful.

Birds will be birds...........


from War days.....a once busy lighthouse



Can ya' spot a resident?

Y'all, FC over at Pure Florida gave me a hint: Check his site fer a great few posts on clam farmin' near or at Cedar Key (Click here). The third post down is real good. Lots of photos!

An' wait til ya read what the clammer gits versus what ya PAY fer these juicy jewels!!

Y'all, I ain't been heah since a coon's age. That'd be since mah 20s. (eons back in time)when I wuz a young'un in Hog Town Creek (50 porch points fer the first somebody who knows what the name of Hog Town Creek is now.)

They ain't got no franchise eateries an' no Walmart.

We never made it to the close-by winery. Savin' up fer next pass thatway.

Ho ho! You fellas is on the money--G'ville it is! Troll, youse rackin' up points--but I ain't tradin' 'em off fer Troll points!

FC, no kiddin'? Well, iffin' we's that close I apologize fer not payin' respects.

Ain't CK a hoot? Did learn they make they money now via clam farmin'--who knew? As un-franchised as it be, it still ain't quite like I remembered. Not shure jes' why that is.

Aunty Belle,
Well now, a fine gent to squire you around an ol Floridy town sounds like a good outing to me.

I think that resident is a pelican. They's sure messy birds and have you watched their water landings? They isn't the picture of grace. They manage a pretty smooth glide path then SPLAT.

I'm wif the others in believing they changed out hogtown for gatortown.
