Cool, sunny day and more of that next several days! Glad temperatures are warming up a bit back home!
It was a great time reminiscing with Dorothy over a yummy lunch at Tommy Bahamas. She's a real delight at 95 years young!
Today is their 19th wedding anniversary and Mark and I were happy to share this special occasion with a delicious dinner at P. F. Chang's.
We had delicious dinner at The Old Marco Lodge Crab House in Goodland, FL (east of Marco Island) and great time "catching up"!
Bob, Linda and I had a scrumptuous lunch at Tommy Bahamas and then Linda and I hit the shops - oooohhhh, Naples is our kind of town! Bob spent the afternoon "people watching". Great jazz concert in the park, too!
Here's a few stats on what makes Michelbob's ribs (and onion rings) so successful and gooey good!
Guy Harvey's Island Grill was recommended for lunch! "Life is Good" sitting in the sunshine by the water & boats and enjoying some great seafood (shrimp quesadillas for me and "white" roughy for Mark)
We had planned to leave for Naples tomorrow, but still waiting on our mail, so....maybe Friday? It's been 2 weeks of fun times with Philip and Annette - thanks kids!!!
We enjoyed Annette's wonderful veggie breakfast sandwiches and then we all went to 10:00 Mass at The Resurrection. Annette and I shopped and we all played dominoes in the afternoon, had yummy chili dogs and watched the Ravens/Steelers game
Luka and Mia are Philip and Annette's little friends/neighbors. They stopped by and enjoyed the "talking bird" which repeats everything anyone says!!!These are decadent desserts Annette bought today at "Chocolada"- WONDERFUL!!!
Grampa's is a VERY popular spot in Dania Beach for breakfast, lunch, dinner!
Ran errands with Philip and Annette in the afternoon - here's the "Runner" of the family off for his daily 8-mile run on Hollywood Beach.
Joe (Maria wished to remain anonymous)
After dinner, we enjoyed dessert (flan) and Cuban coffee (delish)
and more "catching up". Thanks again, Joe and Maria
And now for an update on our scary yesterday here in the 250-acre Topeekeegee Yugnee Park. Supposedly a man had been in a roll-over accident a few blocks away and ran from his car with a gun. Several witnesses reported this and thought he ran into the park. Then the search began with police, helicopters, etc. Apparently, he's still on the loose???
Meant to tell you that St. Maurice Catholic church where we went to Mass yesterday was a former horse stable - it was something to see with the sliding doors, tall rafters, hay loft (now choir loft) etc.
Annette came over and after wine and chatting, we had dinner at DiSalvo's - yummy!
Storm came thru early afternoon with some rain, and temperatures dropped 20 degrees!
Karen and DaveThe Outback Crab Shack near St. Augustine- ate in the sunshine and enjoyed some super seafood Bye bye...hope it won't be so long till our next visit!
Tomorrow, back on Daisy and heading south (the farther south we travel, the higher gas prices are) - best was $1.33 somewhere in South Carolina. Found out that the damages to our truck from December accident are now at $12,000. UGH!
A neat shop on Jekyll - this island is very quant and quiet
Mark at Gnat's Landing on St. Simons Island having his wine in a stem less glass. We enjoyed Brunswick Stew (Mark) and corn/crab chowder (me) - delish!!! St. Simons is a happening place with great shopping, eating, etc., etc. I got a manicure/pedicure and it was a wonderful 80-degree sunshiny day!
