On the way back home from our annual week on the Gulf of Mexico, Natalya and I decided to stray away from our usual rout and visit a small town of Wewahitchka, Florida, famous for its tupelo honey apiaries. Before paying a visit to the old man L. L. Lanier's beekeeping farm,we turned to the edge of the town to have a peek at the Dead Lakes, we've heard so much about. The scenery of the lakes was so unusually attractive that we spent a few hours there, I with my camera, Natalya with a camcorder. By the time we explored the lakes, it was too late for a visit to the old beekeeper. Oh well, there is always next year (until time comes when it's not).
PS. The movie "Ulee's Gold" was shot in this area and old L.L. Lanier consulted Peter Fonda on how to handle the bees.
