The bowler hat, also known as a bob hat, derby (US), or bombín, is a hard felt hat with a rounded crown originally created in 1849 for the British soldier and politician Edward Coke, the younger brother of the2nd Earl of Leicester. The bowler hat was popular with the working class during the Victorian era, and later on with the middle and upper classes in the United Kingdom and the eastern United States. Later in the United Kingdom, it would come to be worn as civilian work dress by former officers of the Queen’s Guard. In Bolivia, women of Quechua people have worn bowler hats since the 1920s when British railway workers introduced them there. ~Wikipedia

I love that some things haven’t changed. I remember fondly the trips my family took to Fort De Soto when I was a child. I’ve enjoyed getting reacquainted again with the park this Spring.
The largest park within the Pinellas County Park System, Fort De Soto park consists of 1,136 acres made up of five interconnected islands (keys). These keys are home to beach plants, mangroves, wetlands, palm hammocks, hardwoods and scores of native plants. -pinellascounty.org
The area of Fort De Soto for over 400 years has attracted a variety of visitors. Among the earliest was the Tocobaga Indians, who preceded the Spanish conquistadors who began the European entrance into the Florida peninsula. – wikipedia
