February & March 2019 - Miami FL, Bonita Springs FL, Juno Beach FL, Naples FL, & Cedar Key FL After a short visit home to create more beautiful silk designs, I headed back to Miami Florida for the Coconut Grove Art Festival. We had a great time at this show. Before driving south to Miami Bill and & stopped at Ft Lauderdale Beach for the day and enjoyed the beach, some shopping and awesome dining at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.... You gotta check this place out if you are in Ft Lauderdale. We also enjoyed some live music and drinks at "Elbo Room", Its a small dive bar right on the beach. Once we finished with the Coconut Grove Art Festival in Miami we shot north for a week of R&R in West Palm Beach. We enjoyed a visit to the amazing "Lion Country Safari" A must see. The safari is connected to a KOA campground so if you are so inclined you can camp and listen to the lions roar morning and night. We enjoyed things like hand feeding several species of birds as well as giraffes. This park has so much for the entire family. Bill and I had a great vacation driving around and finding great little treasures, we visited many beaches and restaurants. We both look forward to next year. Just before traveling home I visited the island of Cedar Key FL. What a quaint little fishing town. This little gem is nestled among 11 small islands that make up Cedar Key. It is a true fishing town, the ocean surrounding these 11 islands is home to many clam farmers that harvest around 80% of all clams consumed in the USA. While in Cedar Key, I enjoyed many of the lovely restaurants.... of those my absolute favorite was called "29 North", its a dockside restaurant upstairs from 83 West (another very cool place to shoot some pool and have a beer on the water). Also during my stay in Cedar Key I enjoyed a lovely sunset cruise / tour of the islands. I can highly recommend Tidewater tours. Take this tour, its great for the entire family. You can also find some beautiful clothing at the Harbour Master shops and grab an ice cream cone.
