It has been there on South Orange Avenue in Sarasota for the past seven years - but this was our first time dining at Fresh Start. I must tell you it's a hidden gem. We love Sarasota and generally go for the Saturday farmer's market. But there's also the...
We have visited Melbourne twice. The first time was on a whim when we decided the Space Coast was calling our name. On that foray, we discovered Eau Gallie - much to our delight. The second time, we went to attend an Easter Sunrise service at Hightower Beach. We...
National picnic day is coming up, so we decided to go and have an outside lunch in preparation to blog about this blessed event. We had seen an old fashioned hoedown near Bartow - and had planned to attend it. However, after hours of searching (it seems our satellite...

  We had the opportunity to visit Dade City just in time for their Kumquat Festival this past January. There literally were hundreds of vendors and thousands of people packing the streets of this tiny burg for this annual event. City blocks were sealed off for the double rows of 10x10 pop-up...
We took a recent trip to High Springs on a lark. There we found one of the coolest little places we have run upon while traveling the Sunshine State. The cornerstone of our experience was a stop at The Great Outdoors Restaurant. The Great Outdoors Cafe is a great find for...
