demand from 2007, we will rally May 1-4, at the luxurious
Dunedin Carefree Resort located on Bay Shore Blvd. (US

Trail. This paved trail is on the former railroad right-ofway

country’s largest Greek community, Tarpon Springs. The Jolly
Trolley also makes the trip via road. You can get on and off all

Honeymoon Island is just three
miles away with its ferry to Caladesi Island. Both these State
Parks have award winning beaches. Trekkers from the earlier
rally reported seeing hatchlings on eagle and osprey nests and
finding good shelling on the north beach. Co-hosts Wally and Lee
will guide bird watching and photo hikes.
