More Book Scouting – Florida Style

Okay, so this first photo isn’t book scouting.  Once in a while to have to cool your heels in the sand and water and look for shells!

That’s the beauty of Florida book scouting.

Our book scouting took us to the lovely Cape Coral, Florida public library where they were holding a Friends of the Library Sale.

We joined the line…

An early printing of the first edition of “The Grapes of Wrath.”

We spotted this lovely old car parked nearby beneath the shade trees…a 1921 Model “T” — in close to original condition!


It was the best old thing we’d seen all day (besides each other…haha).


The Yacht Club  “Boat House Bar” had lovely views, outdoor seating and live music.








All in all…not a bad day!


Coming up… our trip to Gainesville for their library sale!
