Well, it’s just one more reason why I love my village…The 10th Annual Safety Harbor Wine Festival. In the afternoon, the city began shutting down Main Street to vehicles and allowed villagers to let their hair down and meander through the street, drinking fine wines and listening to enchanting live music from the gazebo in John Wison Park.
The night sky was full with stars, the air was breezy and cool and copious supplies of wine flowed to a breaking record crowd this year; and the local restaurants were on hand to provide what they do best…sustenance.
This pic is of two volunteers, of which there are many, that make happenings in Safety Harbor happen. I wish I would have gotten their names so that I could thank them in this post. I was caught up in the relvelry of the moment, and forgot that I was trying to get the perfect pic for this post…which may not be the perfect quality photo, but…that’s not my goal. What’s important to share is the essence of the people that ARE Safety Harbor, and why I hold this place so dear to my heart.
Cudos to all the city workers that did a fantastic job in the night cleanup. I was out for breakfast the next day, and there wasn’t one leftover reminder of a street party from the night before.
And so, I am grateful and honored to write my sign off —
This is Safety Harbor, FL and this is my village…
