  From Miami FL to New York City - German Tourists Hitch Hiking This was the first time in over 22 years in Venice, I have seen German Tourists hitch hiking from Miami FL to New York City.  Their names are Dodos and Pablos from Berlin Germany.     To find out their journey here. My husband and I met them at Wal-Mart during our grocery shopping in the evening. The park for camping was closed, so we offered them dinner and to stay overnight at our home. They were hitch hiking from Miami to Naples Florida, and decided to ride on bicycles for the rest of their journey. We gave them maps and information on things to see in the area. They requested a group picture before they continued their journey to New York City.   We wish them a fantastic and safe travel.   German Tourists Hitch Hiking f...

 Pollinators – Bees, Birds, and Butterflies Have you noticed any bees, birds, butterflies or flies flying around your yard or garden? Beside wind and water, the pollinators – bees, birds, and butterflies play an important role in helping our plants to reproduce offspring for the next generation.

Result Through pollination, plants produce seeds and the seeds produce a new plant. Seeds can only be produced when the pollen is transferred between flowers of the same species - they do not interbreed with different species.

   Here is the Four Sided Clock in the City of Venice FL     The city of Venice FL celebrated it’s 85th Anniversary in 2012.  About 40 or 50 years ago Venice was not a nice looking town.  Between 1990s and early 2000s, the City Council agreed to improve the look and beautify the City of Venice to attract tourists and home buyers from other areas to town. They spent money to install brick sidewalks and antique-looking street lamps along the Downtown Street.  The four sided clock in the City of Venice on the 200 block of West Venice at the Centennial Park was added for the decorative value.   Tick Tock Tick Tock … the 4 Sided Clock in the City of Venice FL   This information is provided by Kwee Huset Realty.
