How Did We Get Sponge Docks?

First, in 1887 the railroad service to New York began and created a boom for Tarpon Springs. The gorgeous Victorian Mansions you see around the Bayous were built by wealthy people who came to visit and fell in love with the area. In due time, they helped establish churches, schools, businesses, and hotels (so that more wealthy tourists could visit and fall in love).

Secondly, Lots of Sponges grew in the waters around Tarpon Springs; a huge sponge industry developed when the Greek divers came. At the same time, the Greek families opened shops and restaurants, pastry shops and markets.

Things To Do This Weekend (2015)

Things To Do This Weekend. Here we are, it’s the weekend again. I know, everyone who works a regular 9-5 job loves the weekend,  but those of us who work whenever someone calls us, Friday doesn’t have as much meaning. But, we do like to celebrate along with our friends. (posted October 2015).

Things To Do This Weekend

This cheerful-looking fellow was hiding in the fountain display at Lowes and he looks so happy, I knew he was a weekend lover as soon as I saw him. I’m assuming the flower is a sunshade since it wasn’t raining that morning. 

Isn’t he just too cute. I wish I had a spot for him but I had to pass him up. Well, maybe he’ll still be there tomorrow: I’m sure I need something from Lowes.
