    Stallions were just fantastic. Castle was a little "hokey" so we just walked trails surrounding which were beautiful and like being in air conditioning. Somehow we did not get together at the Castle. My navigator took me by way of Jacksonville so we probably arrived late. Then we had to go to our favorite native plant nursery at the end of Fruitville road. Had lunch at Wheelers in Arcadia - an institution since 1929. Next Saturday is a big antique fair in Arcadia - we will be there.

    That's a good idea Pat. Here is a link to the website that confirms what she says http://www.hlipizzans.com/
    Is it possible to go back to the original plan?

    May 8, 2014

    • Brenda L.

      Yes, They must have updated the site since Tracy saw that the 3rd was the last date. We will go back to the original plans. The meetup will be re-released tomorrow morning. Thanks for posting!

      May 8, 2014

  • Tracy S

    The website for the horses indicates May 3rd is the last practice time... are we sure they are going to be rehearsing this day?

    May 5, 2014

  • Tom C.

    I will probably miss this one, as I will be out of town; however, I would highly recommend Solomon's Castle. It is amazing and there are lots of photo opportunities!
