Florida approaches… fast.

Time to brush up on Seasons on the Flats, by Bill Horn (and illustrated by Bob White). The book is about the passing seasons in the Keys and how things change and morph from one to the next.

    See, JT was all “Please, please, please!” and we were all “um, we don’t think so. Bill is our guy.”

  4. Thanks guys and looking forward to meeting you Bjorn.
