Strutting in the street

On a hot Saturday morning in July I decided to head to the Saturday morning farmer’s market in Ybor City near downtown Tampa. I have never been and didn’t think it would be too crowded due to the heat and summer rains. Just wanted to wander around. I had heard there were chickens and roosters running around loose in the area but never have seen them there when we just pop over to eat at restaurant. The park where the market is held is over run with them. They were everywhere.

There were signs everywhere saying not to feed them but of course I saw a couple throwing out break to them.

They were hanging out on the front porches of the houses around the park.

The market was pretty quiet that early in the morning.

This must be the spot to bring your greyhounds because I saw several people walking them in the area.

There were tons of baby chicks there as well so I’ll post those later.

The funny farm.

The duck wasn’t sneaking up on someone. He walked with a limp.

I was concerned about this duck. I’ve never seen a duck sleep with his head on the ground.

He eventually popped his head up. He was okay.

More fun from my mid-February visit to the petting zoo/horse farm near my house. I stopped by again last Saturday and realized when summer comes, it’s going to be too hot to visit. On March 1st it was 80 degrees by noon. Where did winter go?
