Double the Fun

Fall ushers in more outdoor activities.

The Food Truck Wars were here recently.
Vendors offered a variety of meals
from seafood to gourmet burgers to soft serve ice cream.

Even those with special diets were able to find something to eat.
Our town is small and fast food is king.
But from the turnout, I'd say things could be shifting.

Maybe folks are starting to wake up to the importance
of eating local, REAL food.
A gal can hope anyway.

Legoland had a display table there
with areas for the young to explore and build.

Forget the food,
the boy was  

Every other weekend, a nearby town, Lake Wales,
has their farmer's market.
It's a quaint little square 
with lots of Mom-and-Pop stores.
My friends Faye & Lynn sell their goodies there.

I paid them a visit.
On this particular day, they were selling herbs, okra and seeds.
In a few weeks time, 
they will have an abundance of fantastic produce to share.

Of course, I didn't know they were giving away 
free samples of pickled okra.
That just made the experience even better.
That's the way to reel 'em in!

Hope you have something fun planned this weekend!

We do not stop playing because we grow old;
