I looked up in the bar while eating lunch today to see footage of Weeki Wachee on the History Channel of all things. Some show called "Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy." They dressed him as a mermaid and tossed him in the water.



wasn't going to post 'those' pictures to avoid scaring potential guests at our little soirée.....

But now that you have brought it up:

Yay! We will be there!
Make sure you save a bit of time for some of the roadside wildlife, the Spring Hill concrete Sauropods! Great for photo ops!!



Also, I am going to take a quick jaunt down to the Tahitian Resort and Tahitian Gardens in Hudson (a half-hour south on Hwy 19). My father was the architect for this now-disintegrating tiki-themed haunt and I want to compare some of the photos and renderings I have from the 60s before it all dissolves away...

I have some insider information that there is also a third and headless dino in the area. Locals have knowledge of the relic that the gentleman who built the other 2 was working on when he passed away.

My oh my, how the time flies..... It is already the end of July, but I still have some fireworks left over. Anyway....

Hotel announcement for the Mermaid Weekend:

Quality Inn Weeki Wachee (FLA69)
6172 Commercial Way , Spring Hill, FL, US, 34606
Phone: (352) 596-2007Fax: (352) 596-0667

http://www.qualityinn.com/hotel-spring_hill-florida-FLA69

Same hotel as last time. It's a nice hotel and is directly across the street from the park. Rooms start at $66 and go up from there. The website has all the details you need for check in and such.

Added bonus! Hotel is Pet Friendly! Small additional fee applies.

The schedule of the weekend is:

Saturday, Sept 3 - Hotel Check in, Meet & Greet gathering including a Pot-Luck dinner and Pot-Luck Bar.

Sunday, Sept 4 - Breakfast at the hotel then off to the Park to see the Mermaids. The Former Mermaids are performing at 1:30. If you still have some go left in you, head next door to Buccaneer Bay and enjoy the wonderfully cool waters of the Spring.

Sunday, Sept 4 - Dinner at someplace fun. Still working on the details for this bit so stay tuned. And if you have had enough of the group we won't be offended if you head out on your own for dinner.

Monday, Sept 5 - Labor Day! Breakfast at the hotel, hugs and kissed, black mail demands to keep certain photos off of the internet, and everyone heads home full of smiles and memories.

A few of the locals are working with Siesta Key Distillery trying to organize a tour for Saturday Morning followed by Lunch at Trader Vic's Island Bar and Grill. More details as they are available.

Siesta Key Distillery Tour is on! It's in Sarasota, a little under 2 hours south of Weeki Wachee. We'll tour at 11:00am then have lunch at Trader Vic's Island Bar and Grill. Please let me know if you want to join this part of the trip. I'd like to give them a headcount when it gets closer. And by all means, "like" them on facebook if you haven't already: https://www.facebook.com/siestakeyrum Their new spiced rum is available to the public today.

Tristan & I are IN!! We've made hotel reservations and are super excited. I'm particularly excited to go see the Sauropods, I had no idea they were there. Dinosaurs & Dino kitsch are at the top of my fav list (along side tikis & "Peekies").
We will not join the distillery tour, it's a bit early for us to drive out to make it in time, but that sounds like a nice adjunct to the weekend festivities.

Tampa is closest, about an hour away.

Orlando is about three-ish hours away.

The potluck dinner was so much fun last time. Loads of delicious food.

Chip and I will bring Kaulua Pork and Hawaiian sweet rolls again.

See everyone at Weeki Wachee!

A few more details about Saturday....

Saturday from about mid-day until the wee-hours of the night will be one big giant party. Equal parts of Pot-Luck, Room Crawl, Meet & Greet, Carving Jam, Uke Jam, Strawberry Jam, and top it with some whipped cream and a cherry.

Well, maybe not the whipped cream. Unless your into that kind of thing. And there's nothing wrong with being into that kind of thing, just please keep your curtains closed so as to not offend those that may be on a diet.

Anyway....

If you are driving in and are inclined to crafts of any nature that are portable, bring them along and stake out a piece of grass to show off, teach, buy or sell. Last time we had a bit of wood carving as well as some ceramic work going.

Continuing information for Saturday.... Pot Luck Dinner!

Well, dinner is not quite right because it is going to be an all-day kind of thing.

Nothing really to explain for a pot-luck... bring something to share and enjoy. Protein, vegetable, dessert, beverages, any combination of those things if you are creative.

Andy and I are bringing crock-pot pork and a large Sweet-Tea punch.

Please share here if your bringing something specific. Or don't share and keep it a surprise because that will be fun too!

Excited!! Trevor and I will probably bring boozy brownies and a seafood/pasta salad. Hope I can talk him into bringing his chisels and a chunk of wood to do some work and get some tips from experienced carvers. I'll probably just sit in the background with a drink and make caustic comments
