On a beautiful morning in mid-December after spending an hour walking around the Botanical Gardens in Largo, I headed over to Heritage Village next door. I had not been in over a year and wanted to see if they decorated the old houses for Christmas. Not too many decorations but since it’s free to walk around I couldn’t complain. ¬†Heritage Village is a 21 acre living history museum. Walking around the trail, you can see 28 historic buildings dating back to the 19th century. Lots of things to see there.

  1. and you got some exercise on a beautiful day. I’m not so sure that tub was for two, but it certainly looked like it would accommodate a six-footer. Merry Christmas
