Great story Bill. It is of interest to the readers that I add this bit of Florida wildlife information.

In Florida we have the bobcat and the panther. Most non outdoorsy types think they are one and the same. They are definitely different. The Fl. Panther is larger than the Fl. Bobcat. The panther has a long tail almost as long as the panther body. The tail is curved at the tip to avoid dragging on the ground. The bobcat has a shorter tail and curves up to expose the white underside.

Both are very dangerous and when found as young animals, can't be domesticated as pets.

One point I'd like to mention here is the "night time calls" of Florida's wild animals. We used to camp out often as teenagers and Boy Scouts. The first time you hear these two at night it will scare the crap out of you, it did me. Both cats have a very "high pitch" night time call of the wild. They sound like a woman screaming her head off in some sort of horror film. Of course, the louder the call, the closer they are to your camp. We always kept the fires burning bright to keep them at bay.

The only good part to eat from a gator is the tail and it doesn't taste like chicken, it tastes like wild gator tail.

The heart of the cabbage palm is very good. I tastes very similar to regular cabbage but you get the fun of cutting it out of the wild palm. Takes about 30-40 minutes depending on the size of the scrub palm.

And now you you know the rest of the story.

Late morning all,

I got up and decided to cut and edge the yard. It may be the last time I'll get the chance. I took my time and took several
Gatorade breaks. I have a lawn service coming to give me an estimate on doing it for the next year.


Raymo, thanks for the photo of the ex-ACL units.

I'm in the train shed now and hopefully will finish my 2021 build challenge.

Have a great day ya'll

Tom  ;D

Most impressive.

Dennis,

Thanks for taking the time to post your photos. I was last there in 2016 and I see many changes to the scenery and structures.

I see Thom Drigger's (tct855) passenger cars and steam locos are on display also. He is the Master Painter behind most of the FS&M locos and passenger equipment if not all.

Lynn,

The scenery is fantastic and as you said a bit overwhelming in a positive sense. The two curved trestles are wonderful. It's all so natural looking.
