Weird Florida: Day 8 Wrap-Up

May 29, 2012

I’ve got to say with the weather the way it was, I was very skeptical about filming anything today.  We caught up with Weird Florida’s favorite Cryptozoologist, Scott Marlowe in Frostproof to talk about a monsterous serpent that killed a man in Lake Clinch back in the 1920′s.  Then we were supposed to head to the Green Swamp just outside of Lakeland to talk about an ax murder, but the gate was locked.  So then things got real interesting when we met with a wonderful Vietnamese man who has built this shrine to his parents and his homeland.  We just happened to stop by when we could see this

Weird Florida: Day Three Wrap-Up

May 24, 2012

Day three wraps up after our trip to the Barberville Roadside market.  What a cool place! These people have everything to decorate your yard or home.  In the market for a 19 ft giraffe or a rooster over 8 ft tall?  How about your own Statue of Liberty or a wishing well with a black bear? I wound up with a guitar made of recycled metal.  We’ve been meeting some great people and even Isabel has been making friends on this trip.  For Day 4 we head to a haunted restaurant in Rockledge, we’ll meet with a ghost hunter to see what’s really going on.
