Secret Summer Hot Spot in Hernando Beach, Florida Hernando Beach locals know where to go and have fun when summer heats up in this waterfront community!   Their secret summer hot spot may not be that secret among Hernando Beach residents but outsiders who are unfamiliar with the area, often looking for "the beach", find out soon that the area's name is a misnnomer.  Yes, that's right, no beach in Hernando Beach.  Of course,  just a few miles away, there is Pine Island beach which is a great place to enjoy a day.   But Hernando Beach residents are not too disturbed by the lack of a beach in the traditional sense because arguably we have the biggest swimming pool in the world right in our own back yards!    Hernando Beach residents simply get on their boats or at least get a ride on someo...

Summertime Joys of Waterfront Living in Hernando Beach, Florida When you live by the water you get to see all sorts of things. Some things are an almost daily occurrence while others happen only once in a while. No matter what you see, it's always a little bit of a surprise.In the summertime, we usually enjoy sitting by the water when it's still somewhat "cool" in the morning and when the day comes to an end in the evening.  One morning last week, while sitting there drinking my morning coffee, I heard a woodpecker drumming up a storm at one of the neighbor's gutters.  Next I heard some rustling around in a tree behind me and lo and behold, a pair of woodpeckers came to  help themselves to some overripe banana that had gotten ripe while I was on vacation and hadn't cut down yet.   Just ...

Elvis Tribute starts off Memorial Day Weekend in Hernando County Florida Weekend fun kicked off with a Memorial Day Party at the Blue Pelican Marina in Hernando Beach on Friday. The community started gathering at the marina late afternoon and enjoyed a fun evening eating pig roast, BBQ chicken with beer of a new local micro brewery Marker 48.  Kids had a great time in the Bounce House. Several community organizations such as Crime Watch and the Coast Guard Auxiliary  were on hand with information about their services. It was a great way for neighbors to meet for an evening out among friends.   Highlight of the event was a performance by Kenn E Grube, a well known local Elvis Tribute Artist.  Listen to Kenn E's voice, close your eyes and you may believe the real Elvis is in the house!  K...
