Where Oranges Grow on Trees…

Oranges on a tree in Ron's Mom's back yard. Almost ripe!

After leaving Lake City, Florida, we headed south again on I-75 where we stopped in at Webb’s Antique Mall (just off I-75 south of Lake City).  There we ran into Steve Bolter, owner of Sleuth Books in Palm Coast, Florida.  Steve maintains a nice selection of books at Webb’s Antique Mall, and we were happy to find a couple of pretty decorated bindings in nice condition, and some books with early jackets.  Steve and his Boston Bull Terrier were there to check on their booth and add books…we had an enjoyable visit, and Steve supplied us with the Florida Antiquarian Bookseller’s Association guide to book shops in Florida.  This will be a great help to us on our book scouting travels in this state.

We arrived in Port Charlotte, Florida about 3:00 on Saturday afternoon at Ron’s parents home, where we plan to visit for a few days before turning around and continuing our book scouting adventure northward.

What a beautiful place…and beautiful people to relax with!  And a chance to do our laundry as well.

Where I had a morning swim!

We all went to dinner at the nearby Waterside Bar & Grill…

Good food and live music, balmy weather and Magaritas!

Now we are off to explore the area around Port Charlotte and Sarasota, Florida.  We’ll report back soon!
