SEA TURTLE RALLY AT CRYSTAL RIVER, FL
by SHIRLEY W BENNETT

A SMALL GROUP OF SIX COUPLES ATTENDED THE SEA TURTLE RALLY HELD IN CRYSTAL RIVER, FL, AT CRYSTAL ISLES RV RESORT ON WEST FT. ISLAND TRAIL. RAIN, COLD, AND "NO-SEEUMS," DID NOT DETER US FROM HAVING A GREAT TIME. HOST COUPLE, KAREN AND GARY DOOLITTLE, HAD SEVERAL ACTIVITES PLANNED THAT ALL ENJOYED: WE WENT TO THE HOMOSASSA STATE PARK, TOOK THE BOAT RIDE TO THE NATURE PRESERVE, AND ENJOYED THE VIEWING OF ALL THE WILDLIFE. WE NEXT ENJOYED LUNCH AT THE RESTAURANT AT THE OLD HOMOSASSA PRINTING MUSEUM AND A TOUR BY A MOST AMIABLE AND KNOWLEDGEABLE GUIDE, JIMMY. DINNER THAT NIGHT WAS AT A LOCAL COLOR RESTAURANT NAMED NEON LEON'S, KNOWN FOR ITS CAJUN CUISINE AND ENTERTAINMENT BY DIFFERENT VOCALISTS. ONE MAJOR DECISION WAS MADE BY ALL: NO MORE POT LUCK DINNERS! THE LADIES WANT TO EAT OUT INSTEAD. BEST DECISION EVER MADE BY THE CHAPTER!
