Aquatic jewels in Old Town

-A A +A

Did you know there is a touch of the tropics right here in Old Town? And in that tropical setting, “living jewels” abound to the delight of everyone who visits?
Pelican Bay Island is the name Johnny and Martha Foster gave their 5-plus acres in Old Town. It is a little piece of Heaven right in Dixie County. Many locals have visited the “island” over the years to see the sights. Now the Fosters are extending an invitation to everyone to visit Pelican Bay Island and attend Nature’s Coast 10th Annual Koi & Goldfish Show  on Saturday, Oct. 9 and Sunday, Oct. 10.
Maybe you’ve heard of koi. They can be one of the world’s most expensive pets. In some of the large koi shows around the country, it’s not uncommon to see some valued at $20,000. Most koi don’t cost nearly that much. The average koi sells for $25 to $100, but they are just as beautiful as their expensive cousins. Some look as if crafted from gold or silver. On some, the scales sparkle like diamonds. The Japanese have called koi “living jewels.”
