It was a sea of green in Dunedin yesterday for the annual Flannigan's Street Party. This is our second year attending this one of many St. Pat's celebrations in the area. Our first year, we missed much of everything but had a nice sandwich at Peggy O'Neals in Palm Harbor. The celebration there is held the weekend before St. Pat's or the weekend after. The second year, we went on the right date and did see some Irish step dancers but would have preferred Irish music to the country western band that played. Then we discovered Flannigan's and have been spending St. Pat's day roaming the streets of Dunedin.
Last year, I had on my Pat's tee shirt from Pat's Pub in St. Louis and was hailed by a fellow St. Louisan in the crowd. This year, I wore one of my Savannah green tees and we ended up chatting with a couple from Cook County in Ill., one of whom was a former teacher.
Today is Friday and that means Nana/Papa day with the boys. Can't wait...they are growing way too fast...and, pictures to follow, of course! lol
Hope your St. Pat's was a good one!
