The inaugural "Coffee & Conversation" was an assured hit. We hosted a friendly group of curious adventure seekers who turned out to listen to Lucy Beebe Tobias talk about her book "50 Great Walks in Florida". Coffee aroma wafted throughout the gallery as we all viewed a continuous slide show and chatted with Lucy about all manner of exploring Florida.
The ambiance was laid back and relaxed, just as we wanted it to be. After all, it's about savoring a good walk, not hiking.
I learned about geocaching. Nine hundred something in Ocala alone. GPS required. Intriguing.
Clearly enjoying the discussion, Lucy entertained us with stories, anecdotes, history and told great snake and alligator tales. You know she had MY attention.
