Hitty Visits Sun Harvest Citrus

As you may know, I recently moved so I thought I would do a series of posts on my new neighborhood.

As most locals and many Fort Myers tourists will tell you, a good day is one that includes a stop at Sun Harvest Citrus with it’s iconic “Giant Orange”  (also a PokeStop as I recently discovered)

According to their website, SunHarvestCitrus.com, the store has a long-standing family tradition of providing delicious Indian River Florida Citrus to its valued customers.  It began in 1940 when Robert Edsall, Sr. planted his first citrus grove in Vero Beach.

The Sun Harvest Citrus retail store and packinghouse opened in 1990 and offers the family’s delicious Indian River citrus, fresh-squeezed juices, gourmet foods, candies, gifts and more.  The Orange and Vanilla Swirl or Chocolate Key Lime Swirl ice cream cone is a MUST HAVE!

Hitty Moves to a Condominium!

Moving is hard work!

My adopted humans, Shirley and David, recently sold their house and moved to a retirement community.  That’s right….Shirley is officially retired.  Not sure what that means yet, it’s an ever changing routine at this point.

Since, I live with them, my Hitty sisters and I moved too.

One of the biggest challenges, was deciding what to keep and what to discard since our new place was about half the square footage of our house and we would no longer have the garage.

Even though we downsized our living space, we love the view from our 5th floor condo.

Lots of wildlife here in our new neighborhood.  We had a nest of Osprey we watched with binoculars and we even have a resident alligator.

After a few trips to Ikea, the sewing room (AKA as dining room) was ready!

Here I am sorting through my closet.  I just threw everything on the bed so I could try on and decide what to keep or sell.

I am having a moving sale.  You can see it on Shirley’s ebay page Click Here

The last few months

by Hitty Alice, Adventurer Extraordinaire
Well, as you can see, while I am having adventure after adventure, it takes me awhile to get ahold of a computer to tell you about them. Also, it’s not always safe to carry a camera around in Santa Cruz. Pickpockets and armed robberies are becoming commonplace and my friend, Emily, doesn’t like to carry anything that will bring her attention. So, today she was taking her purse and (since she would be with friends) decided to put me and her camera inside! Since school is out for vacation, some of her teacher friends decided to invite Emily to an Argentine Empanada place. Que Delicioso! We had to ride a micro to get there. It was my first time- and I don’t need to tell you that it’s scarier than falling down a rabbit hole.

Here are a few pictures of the micro and empanada shop.

On the way home, Emily decided it was safe enough for me to peek out of her purse. As we hopped off the micro and walked past the school, I reminded her that you all hadn’t seen the school from the outside. 🙂

Emily told me the school still needs teachers for next year. Do any of you know someone who wants to give students a quality education that is filled with the love of Christ? I’m sure it’s a great opportunity. I’d try it, but they don’t have any teacher desks that are my size.

The last two pictures I want to give you are from the end of the year. The first is my Director’s shot of SCCLC’s 2nd Semester play, “Twelve Angry Jurors.” The students did an outstanding job! It was the first serious show the kids have done and I was very impressed!

The second pic is from the second semester Garage Sale. People from all over the community rent tables and come buy things. The Sophomore class, which Emily sponsors, sold their bake mixes. I helped. I must say, I had no idea how good of a Sales Hitty I really am!
