Thursday in Dunedin and Friday morning breakfast

After we got back from taking the Grands to school, Steve and I walked and then we all got cleaned up and headed to Dunedin for the day.  We started with lunch at Old Bay Cafe on the Gulf.  The weather has been wonderful and yesterday was perfect for sitting on the water

After a side trip to the Dragonfly Garden (and acquiring two new metal butterflies for our fence in the back), we moved next to Rosie's Tavern.

 And, since this is American Craft Beer week, we sampled one of Tampa's own.

Our next few stops were to humor me and for Steve to find a something special for his wife and our friend, DeeDee.

And this one is for my mermaid loving friends.  I'm thinking maybe Santa needs to bring our little Leighton one of these beauties.

 We strolled down Main street for some retail therapy and so Steve could find a pretty or two for his wife and our friend, DeeDee, who was working back in St. Louis.

 Sun glass Fun!

Our next stop was down the Trail to Jolli Mon's for some fun atmosphere and cold drinks.  They guys had a beer and I sampled the white Sangria which was very very nice. 

 The Beer list is for Pam Bennett and look Cynthia, Gluten free beer!  .

.Our next stop was the Dunedin Brewery and then Flanagans where I switched to iced tea.

 We made one final stop at Loggerheadz in Palm Harbor to see our friends Bob, Suzie and Justin before heading home to ribs and sides. 

This morning we met up with Kristen and Chris who had taken the day off work to get their backs adjusted.  Lucky Dill was our restaurant of choice and breakfast was wonderful. The company was even better.  It is seldom we get to socialize with the kids when they do not have the Grands.  (Pam Bennett, are you clicking on all the links to read the menus? I'm linking just for you!)

We're chilling around the house til later this afternoon.  Our plan is to walk downtown Tarpon, stop a couple of places, meet friends at Cap'n Jacks and then end the evening listening to live music and having some good food at Tarpon Tavern

Tomorrow is Steve's last day as his plane leaves tomorrow afternoon.  All we have planned is for he and I to walk into town on the Trail ending at Toula's Trailside and meet up with E for breakfast.  Steve's visit has provided us with an opportunity for a "staycation" and it has been so much fun! We'll hate to see him go.

I wanted the crabby eggs benedict until I saw the limoncello French toast ;)
