sorry for missing the last two days only duty called and I have to earn some sheckles for our summer vacation so nose to the grindstone this week.
We are now back in Florida at nearly the end of our vacation and had the opportunity to meet up with our "Book of many faces" James who I have been in contact for over a year on Facebook and we were invited to Fort Menendez to have one of his famous talks about the days when the Spanish were in Florida.
I thought the Fort was very impressive with it's canons firing across the street. The Fort is also used for educational purposes to teach the children the history of Florida and the United States.
We arrive at a preset time and waited for him to appear and low and behold the doors flew open and there he was in his wonderful costume.
Next we had to sign in. He looked very much at home behind his desk.
We were then taken out into the yard and Sue was put if the stocks for a photograph.
This was followed be a demonstration on candle making by James with Pat looking on. Mind you don't splash that costume.
Then a game of shells and guess who won.
James in his glory sitting on the throne looking very Majestic.
Lastly a group shot of he holiday group, left to right, me, Sue, Vickie and Pat, James took the photograph. BTW, Pat and Vickie and now engaged to be married and are going to live in Daytona Florida.
Thanks James for a wonderful time, we all have never laughed so much.
Afterwards we went for lunch with James before we returned to the hotel.
Thanks for looking.
nite nite, luv Mike XX
