Branching Out In Tarpon Springs, FL
We love our trees here in the sunshine state and take extra care to save them whenever we can. These lucky branches had a wall built with special niches just for them (We all know what niches are and how we have to have special ones).
We were just leaving Billy’s Tarpon Turtle Restaurant when Craig pointed these out to me. We’ve seen them before but they never said “blog fodder” to me then.
As I said, we love our branching trees.

The Chameleon Car in Tarpon Springs, FL
On our trek through the jungle of classic cars searching for one we can fall in love with, we visited this one with its very interesting paint job. We asked the seller on the phone prior to heading on safari what color it was; she said brown and green but you really have to see it.
She was right.
And, it is brown; or is it green? What a unique car. It's a 1970 Monte Carlo
If you stand in the sun, it is a bright, emerald green.
