Michael Cavanaugh

Second of eight shows in the Real Music Real Masters Series at Busch Gardens.  Only 2 performances per day, so don’t wait for the 3:30 PM show.  The performance was excellent.  Michael Cavanaugh really engaged the audience.  When he played the harmonica and the piano for Piano Man we all knew the words.

Family Fishing Festival

Hosted by Withlacoochee River Park and Pasco County Parks, Recreation, and Natural Resources.

 

Wonderful welcome:

 

This was an excellent family event.  The first 300 children to fill their event cards received a fishing rod and tackle.  Rods were available on loan so you could join the children fishing.  Events included learning how to tie knots and cast.

Strathroy Snow Squalls

Our annual trip home to see family and friends during the Christmas season has been extended due to snow squalls and extreme temperatures in Strathroy Ontario.  I wrapped up in my winter clothes and went for a walk around town.

Highway 402 was closed from 401 to Nauvoo Rd, so much of the traffic ventured through Strathroy.
