Trip to Bartow, FL

I went to an agricultural history conference this past week/weekend and recorded a few images of from my travels. The conference included a tour of the Alafia River Rendezvous, Citrus Research Lab, Mosaic Phosphate Mining Operation, Orange Packing Plant and Cattle Ranch.

Can't help but think we're spoiled, when I see that coffee-pot. I won't be able to live through one day without my Dolce Gusto coffee-machine!

And that's spanish moss hanging from that tree isn't it?

Cows don't really do it for me. (Unless their on my plate... Sorry... *g*)

They're lovely picture hun, thanks for sharing!

Heee! I've got a Dolce Gusto machine too! Now if only I could persuade Tesco to stock more of the pods I want!

I sometimes order them online. Especially the ones my supermarket doesn't have.

I like cortado and lungo. What's your favourite?

Skinny latte, Cappuccino Ice, Peach Nestea. Vanilla Latte is nice too and Chai tea which tastes like latte coffee!

Different tastes! :)
I could have known you'd go more for tea than coffee!
We like vanille latte too.

Sometimes ordering online is cheaper (large quantities)- but you need a lot of space to put it all! :)

Nope, can't do without the automatic coffee machine. Very spoiled indeed but I'll tell you a secret. The folks there had a few modern conveniences tucked away out of sight like the cell phone plugged into a portable power supply or the cooler hiding under the Indian blanket.

Yes, that was Spanish Moss. I love seeing it hanging from a tree. It just screams the South to me.

I loved the steak dinner later that night. It was delicious.

thanks.

*grins* Yes, hard to let go once you're used to certain things.

I remember it from the tv serie North & South with Patrick Swayze, so yes it does mean South to me as well.

Steaks are the best! *g*
