Early Release

Dylan got out of school at noon today, so we all piled into the car and drove up to Ft. Pierce to visit the St. Lucie County Historical Museum and the Marine Center. The Museum and Gardner House were the most enjoyable to me. We all really enjoyed the Florida Cowboy exhibit. Those men were called Crackers! I think that's surprising. It wasn't until after WWII that the open range was fenced in and cows were prevented from blocking traffic. The museum also has a very nice display of Seminole life and customs - the actual photographs are stunning to see.
Dylan had a chance to try his hand at printing.

Here's our own Florida Cracker boy!

Favorite fish from the Marine Center.
We had dinner at Norris's Famous for Ribs - It was wonderful!
