Florida - February 2008

Steve visited family in Florida in February. Here is his mother, brother Mike and sister in law Kellie

We visited Emerson Point, home of some native American mounds

and this great example of a strangler fig

The fact that we're three weeks past Ash Wednesday did not stop the town of Rubonia from having a Mardi Gras festival

in very Florida style

or whatever style the vultures represent

They celebrated modern Southern traditions in big ways.

and small ways.

They celebrated the area's agricultural heritage

They found ways to utilize those most Florida of transportation modes, the golf cart

and the electric scooter
