A Visit to Tarpon Spring - The Greek Sponge Diver Village at the West Coast, Part II

New sponges are arrived in the harbor

They keep the sponges wet in this net after the catch

The sponges are sorted out to different nets

He has still a lot of work to do...

A colorful accent to the white boat

Fresh sponges, Ladies and Gentleman

Old shrimp boats - Miss Suzanne, what a nice name...:-)

I would say it sounds very Greek, right? :-)

These are my last pictures from Tarpon Spring at Florida's west coast.
Stay tuned for more and new adventures to come.

I love Tarpon Springs. Haven't been down in a few months, so I'm definitely due. Scanning through your blog to see if you've been to Sarasota - we're driving down end of this month.

Your photos are beautiful.

I've been on those very docks in Tarpon Springs. Brings back memories--thanks. Remember the old movie "Beneath the 12 Mile Reef" with Gilbert Roland, Robert Wagner, and I can't recall the girls name--it was filmed there! Yes, I remember the girls name--Terry Moore. Guess I'm dating myself. I love the sea. My profile picture was made years ago on a trip to mexico (acapulco) Its the one tthat didn't get away.
