Walking through an art and craft show on the Sponge Docks in Tarpon Springs-Florida recently, we came across these guys.

The parrots seem to be bewildered by the bears. After all, one’s holding a welcome sign and the other says go away on the Sponge Docks in Tarpon Springs-Florida

I’m confused! Although the gentleman taking a snooze there seems okay with the revolution going on in front of him.
It's a beautiful day on the Sponge Docks in Tarpon Springs-Florida

I have always loved those bear carvings.  One day I will get one for my yard.  I can't believe he is sleeping like that!  LOL

I know; there were all kinds of people and a band, and he looks so peaceful. Thanks for stopping by, Debra.

Toni,

What an interesting contrast of parrots and bears.  There is a ski run in our favorite resort in Deer Valley, Utah, where it seems like each home has a different carvings.  Our favorite is a home with bears on skis, one landed on the roof, some are sitting on the porch.  The whole scene is utter delight...that is what your shot reminds me of.  Happy Sunday.  A

It was an interesting combo, Alexandra. When you go back to Deer Valley-please take some pictures -- I would love to see that. I love whimsey!

Karen - I won't tell your husband you said that :)

Toni I checked in on you tonite KNOWING you would have pictures of something really cool.  Needless to say, you didn't let me down.  I'm cracking up!!!  Those parrots and bears together are so funny.  And the sleeping vendor is classic.  Must have been just after a great seafood lunch on the docks.

Hey Everybody, I went in and fixed the Series link which apparently wasn't working.

LOL, Cyndi. It was early in the a.m. and he looked exhausted-poor guy.

William - thanks; I was tempted by a small bear but didn't think my homeowner's association would agree :)

Patricia - I do too but I would probably cut off a couple of fingers if I made the attempt.

Cyndi - that may very well be where these folks came from. The artists come from all over to this show.

Thank you, Roy, you too!

L/S - I thought so too. He's in the parrot picture too but it's funnier in the bear one. Thanks.

Hi Toni, I love the wood carvings.  Do you know if they use chainsaws?  We have some carvers that use them but  regardless of the tools, they are beautiful.  The parrots might be a bit out of place, but I would love to have another bear or too!

Mary-I don't know what they use. I will find out next time I see them. I think bears would work better for you too :). How many do you have now?
