Our "whoa-up" in Sarasota gave us a couple more lovely dinners, some time to read and relax in the sun AND hit the beach one more time. We went back to a couple fav. restaurants during our unexpected stay. Dry dock Grill on Longboat (so Dave could have another portion of Lobster Tacos) and, after a sweet day at the beach, another fabulous meal of "shrimps" in garlic and brandy at unassuming little Rick's Bistro. Oh boy.....we need to tone it down from now on!

Yesterday we drove a whopping 92 miles north to the Traveler's Rest RV and Golf Resort near Dade City, Florida.

We've recently connected (via email) with business friends we haven't seen in probably 30+ years. Peggy and Kevin have just moved to this area (a week ago!) and we were able to meet them for dinner last night. As you have come to expect from me, I took no pictures. We talked, non-stop, from the time we pulled into their driveway until we said our goodbyes at the restaurant. It was wonderful to catch up on each other's lives.
We were planning on seeing them again this evening, but.....one of us is not feeling at all well and has taken to his bed. Uh oh.....
