Let the Good Times Continue!

Yesterday was another exciting day in the Bradonton area.  We picked up Cindy and John at their hotel at 9:30 and started on our drive to the beaches along the Gulf Coast near the Bradenton area.  Our 1st stop was Coquino Beach, which was a favorite of Ken's mother.  We had sat on the beach with Richard and his mother numerous times when we visited them in Florida. 

From there we drove through Lido Beach, St. Armand's Circle, Longboat Key, and Seista Key Beach.  It was a beautiful drive!  We ate lunch at Seista Key Village at an outside cafe, and then spent most of the afternoon on the beach at Seista Key, famous for their white sand that feels like talcum powder!

Back to the Campground for more men vs. women shuffleboard.  If you ask me, the guys are so lucky!!!  They won all 3 games, but we gave them a run for their money!!!  Cindy and I just have to get our act together and come up with a new strategy.

We had a late hamburg dinner in the 5th wheel.  (Ken had grilled outside in the dark!).  Then we played 3 games of Pinochle of which the women won 2 out of 3.  Redemption!!!!!

Today we are taking them to see one of our favorite areas in Florida - Venice!  Anxious to show them the center of town, Caspersen Beach, Nokomis Beach, and then the drive along Casey Key Road.

Looks like another beautiful, warm day in Paradise!

Food is prepared and then placed on the shelf at the window at the
outside cafe in Seista Key Village!
Clubhouse at our Campground!  Shuffleboard and
pool are there too!
