It might be fun for those of us who aren't going all the way to San Diego for Tiki Oasis. We can't all be international jet-setting men-of-mystery like TikiMango!

We have two dates lined up and are working a few angles with the hotel and park. We'll do a formal announcement soon.

I am not going to offer a date of when we are going to offer a date because I tend to enjoy an adult beverage now and again so the timing of the timing is bound to be a bit off.

I have to 2nd Jon's vote....I've lived in Fla for 46 years and I've never been there (D has been in the parking lot though)!

OK, I know I said we would do it again last year, but then last year strangely turned into this year..... Well, better late than never. Or something like that.

Anway... we're ON for 2011!

2011 Weeki Wachee Weekender II - Underwater Boogaloo!

Labor Day Weekend, September 3, 4 & 5!

Saturday from morning-ish till late-ish - Pot Luck Dinner, Carving Jam, Uke Jam, Strawberry Jam, and other bits of tom-foolery involving the pool, some booze, and you.

Sunday with the Mermaids, the park opens at 10 am. And when you've had your fill of Mermaids, you can then enjoy the Atomic-Wedgie-Machine otherwise known as the water slide at Buccaneer Bay on the other side of the lagoon.

If you still have some energy left, we'll all meet up for dinner at this strange little dive bar just a couple of miles from the Springs. And if you still have some go after that we'll terrorize the poor Karaoke Man in the Hotel Lounge.

Monday we'll all have some breakfast, exchange blackmail demands with each other to not post 'those' pictures, and go home with huge smiles on our faces and fond memories.

More, and probably better written, details will show up with greater frequency as we get a bit closer to the date. For now just mark your calendar and stay tuned for more information about the hotel arrangements.

This sounds fun. I have lived in Florida for 15years and never been to Weeki Wachee. It's billed as the only city of live mermaids.

A few pics from the last time we did this....

We had a Potluck table, two actually...


Some carving and crafts


Some would say music....


Some Mermaids


And a whole lot of laughs with good friends!



I didn't get that many pictures.... you can see what I did manage to get here:

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.
