All aboard....

Yesterday afternoon, E and I parked our car at the Sponge Docks and caught the Jolly Trolley heading south. The trolley only runs as far as our town Friday through Sunday. The rest of the week it only goes from Clearwater to Clearwater Beach and on to Sand Key and back. For the whopping fee of 2.50 each (4.50 for younger people) E and I can hop on and off the trolley all day long.

We caught up with the Greens on our way to Palm Gazillion (could have sworn I had a pic of us from there but this is the only one on the camera from our adventure yesterday). We had a cold one at the Palm, and then waited and waited and waited in the heat for the trolley. Turns out we had just missed one but caught the next. Isn't this what memories are made of ?

Our next stop was Dunedin and Sea Sea Riders for some much needed fuel for our tummies...their food never fails us. We have not had anything but amazing food there ever.

Then is was on to Olde Palm Harbor and a stop at Peggy O'Neals. We walked from there to The Backyard where we listened to a cool musician and singer. We found out that Billy Jack's BBQ where we wiled away a couple of Sat.s listening to music had closed. Apparently the story is that the landlord was upping the rent and the owners of Billy Jack's said no. :( SAD...really liked that place.

The Greens caught the next trolley south and we sat on a bench across from Peggy O'Neals people watching until ours came along heading north about 30 min. later.

Briget and Ken, we had a blast with you. It was such fun to chat about the old days at Hazelwood Central and our kids and grandkids. We love you both! Thanks for letting us be such a part of your vacation this year. Hurry back!
