This past friday my husband, me. our youngest daughter Rachel, and her friend Bree left right after work to go and visit my friend and her family in Homosassa, Florida. We really needed a break and we always have a good time when we go. Our husbands love to fish and her husband has a boat. On Saturday morning the guys got up early and went fishing and us girls went out to lunch here at the Sawgrass restaurant. Click on the pictures to enlarge.
Afterwards we called the guys who said they would be heading through the river soon and they picked us up at a dock and took us to see the manatees in the springs. These are a couple of the houses that we saw along the river.
This is an island called Monkey Island and there are what else... monkeys on it! There is a restaurant on the bank of the river and this island is visible from the restaurant.
Every year Homosassa has a christmas boat float parade. These are a couple of the boat floats. We did not stay to see the parade because we were just too tired.
