|Every once in awhile, blogging turns from electrons on the internet to actual matter.|
I've met some really neat people since I started Pure Florida and it happened again this weekend.
When you meet someone whose blog you read or someone who comments as a regular on your blog, or a combination of the two, it always seems like you've known each other for a long time ... even though that moment is the first time you have actually seen each other.
It's a neat experience and one unique to this point in history.
At the Cedar Key Seafood Festival, I finally got to meet Annie (Edifice Rex) and her husband, Jack. I've been reading Annie's blog for years and have always been amazed by this woman who writes about everything from welding beams together on a construction crew to throwing beautiful pottery creations in her studio ... in the house that SHE built.
Annie cracked me up when she announced, "I thought you'd be taller."
I'm so average... just sound taller on the web.
As luck would have it, everytime Jack and Annie wandered back by my clam chowder booth, I was busy slinging cups of chowder, but I did get to pop out and visit for a few minutes.
Annie and Jack are on their honeymoon.
It was awesome to meet them.

At the festival, I also got to meet Tricia (Myamuhnative) and her sister Julie. Tricia has been a regular commenter on Pure Florida for a long time, so it was great to finally see Myamuhnative in real life.
I think they had a great time visiting Cedar Key and the Seafood Festival. I wish I could have been free to visit with them more, but the chowder sales had me pinned down.
Ain't that always the way.
Good day though, a very good day.
