On Saturday we decided to spend most of the day at Holmes Beach and Anna Maria Island. Last year we had attended the Springfest at Anna Maria Island, which is a craft and art show, and it was held again this year on this day. So we decided we would enjoy going there again. It is a juried show with very talented craftspeople. So we parked at Holmes Beach and rode our bikes about 1 mile to the site of the Springfest. This year was just as good as last year. Ken was excited to purchase something he was sorry he didn't take advantage of last year - smoked mullet. This was his 1st time eating mullet and he said it was a treat.
After attending the show, we rode bike down to Bradenton Beach so I could get some homemade ice cream. It was further to the Ice Cream Shop than I anticipated - about 7 miles round trip, but the treat was worth it. Along our ride we passed this very colorful motel right on the beach.
The remainder of the day was rather uneventful. We returned to Willie, played some more shuffleboard, made dinner, and then relaxed, after all, it was a tough day!
