We returned home last Wednesday, and by Saturday we were looking for something to do. On our way home through Florida we saw a billboard along the way advertising the Blueberry Festival in Brooksville. It was only about 60 miles from our home, seemed like a good thing to do for the weekend. As we arrived near the town we soon got caught up in traffic jams and blocked off streets. We parked at the nearest available lot, not knowing how far away the festival was or the distance we had to walk to get to it. As we hiked through the town we came to a small park with a cross above the picnic shelter. The first thing we saw was a statue of the Ten Commandments.
The commons also has prayer corner as well as a sculpture of the Tree of Life and Living Water ( "if any man is thirsty let him come to me and drink"John 7:37 ) The leaves on it are metal and water flows down its sides.
After lunch we felt ready to leave the festival. It was a bit warm, the crowds and lines over-whelming. There was no place for us to sit and eat our lunch. Most of the available seating were either at a wine bar or beer garden. Guess we should have sat and listened to some live music, but we were ready to leave. We did celebrate all things blueberry- ate a blueberry shortcake, bought fresh blueberries as well as a blueberry pie.
