After that I bee-lined it to High Springs a place I haven't visited in a while. It use to be one of my favorite stops on the way to NW Florida but I've changed my route over the years. It was time I revisited! I headed straight for my favorite lunch stop, The Great Outdoor Trading Company store and restaurant, only to find that it had closed two years earlier. Luckily, a family that loved it as much as I did (actually more) bought the place, restored the historic building and turned it into a wonderful restaurant and named it the Great Outdoors Restaurant. I'll be blogging more about them later but here are a couple photos to wet your appetite. I had a delicious Pretzel encrusted Grouper sandwich accompanied by Naked Ed (more on this on my way back through). Some things you just have to experience twice.
After that I shot a few goats, cows and even a dog. He was the least happy about being shot!
