Would you call us dressing up our golf cart with a 5 foot JUNONIA along with nine 3 foot shells to make it a Junonia Jalopy … a little Xtreme for Christmas? I’d say it was Xtremely fun! I’d say they are Xtremely adorable!
Do you think a convoy of YOLO Watersports scoot coupes in Santa hats running the streets of Captiva would be Xtremely cool?
This is the sweetest replica of the Chapel By The Sea sitting on top of a golf cart… soooo un-Xtreme. On second thought- it’s kinda an Xtremely perfect little mini Chapel By The Sea.
There’s nothing wrong whatsoever this golf cart has Christmas trees growing out of its top.
Errrrr…. Well, riding “Rudolphin” down Captiva Drive might just be a tiny bit Xtreme
Oh Okay. Maybe Captiva is Xtremely nuts. We had six Mixed Nuts nut crackers running around all afternoon! heehee
Now I know why the Travel Channel filmed this crazy little Golf Cart Parade! That’s right. The Travel Channel filmed our wacky golf cart parade last year and will include our “Xtreme” Captiva Golf Cart Parade when it airs next Sunday December 15, 2013 at 7:00pm. Yahooo! So exciting!
After the parade this year, Clark and I parked the Junonia Jalopy at YOLO to join their holiday drum circle. There were more than 8 drums, rattles, tom toms, a cow bell and Clark and I brought our own instruments…. saws with screw drivers. LOL
We learned how to “play” a saw with a screwdriver when we went on our shelling vacation to Cat Island in the Bahamas so we thought we’d tune up our own saws and give it a whirl. So much fun! I think the saw is the perfect addition to any island drum circle, don’t you? LOL
Just one more photo to get you back to your shelling mood. I’ve been hearing that just about every beach in Southwest Florida still has some great shells rolling in so I made a quick stop at the beach today at low tide and found these gems. The WHELKS, MUREXES and some of the CONCHS were at the water’s edge half buried in the sand. I found all of the others in the lowest tide wrack line on the beach still wet by the wash. The OLIVES were incredibly colorful and so shiny. I could have picked up gashellions of CERITHS but I never seem to give them the proper respect they deserve. I’m going to dedicate a day soon to CERITHS to make up for that.
Dont forget to watch the Travel Channel on Sunday December 15, 2013 at 7pm to see all of this Xtreme fun!
UPDATE: The show aired TWO times… check out the photos… http://www.iloveshelling.com/blog/travel-channel-interviews-iloveshelling-blogger-pam-rambo/
You guys did a great job on the Junonia Jalopy! Great Shellers and ARTIST!!
Stacy- thank you so much! its lots of fun
DVR is set to record. The show description says “…a Florida Christmas golf car parade”. So you’re IN!
Looks like tons of fun!! BTW, the Russian judge was a little harsh, IMHO. ;-)
I love your float! And of course I think it is the best one! I might be just a little biased… ;) They are all all lovely, and I wish I could be there. Looks like such fun! Love the shell pics, especially those olives and sacral lops! Can’t wait to see your parade on the travel channel! It is freezing in MN right now! Sherri from MN
Who’s the adorable puppy? The look on his (her?) little face is too cute! It all looks like a Christmassy blast!
Tell us about the puppy! He (She?) is too adorable for words…the look on that sweet little face is precious! You guys just have the most fun! Don’t you just LOVE Christmas in FL?!
Yes, that adorable little chiwawa was in one of the carts (can’t remember which one) I think but I couldn’t help but get so tickled at that sweet baby so I added the photo. I knew it would tickle somebody else just seeing her!
And YES!! I love celebrating Christmas in SHORTS, shells and palm trees.
Of course I also think the Junonia Jalopy is the best! What is Christmas without some Great Shells!!!
So fun that you learned to play the saw. You will have to make a video it so we can hear you too.
Can’t wait to watch the parade on Sunday.
Everyone on Sanibel, enjoy the warmth. It is SNOWING here again in Eastern Pa. ugh!!!!
I went to DVR the parade on Sunday and the description says it is a California boat parade, I hope it has several different segments. I would really enjoy seeing the Sanibel parade and the infamous Junonia Jalopy. I am amazed yet again you and Clark are so fun to follow, now you have added sawing ( is that what you call it?) to your list of “things to do.”…opps! I mean “things I do”..Hope you two we give us a little performance soon.
Oh my goodness, I have my DVR set to record Xtreme Xmas TWICE just in case something happens and it doesn’t record the first time!!
I am gonna make my husband promise me he will bring me down there for the Christmas Parade one year. It looks like so much fun!!
Janice from GA
I’d love to come see this in person sometime. Looks like so much fun.
