Still Loving Florida!

Yesterday the fun continued.  Picked up Cindy and John at 10 and headed to our favorite area - Venice.

Showed them the Royal Coachman RV park where we stayed prior and why it is such an unbelievable campground - Location, Location, Location (Actually it is a very nice park too!)  Then we drove into the square in Venice and a wonderful art and craft show was underway!  We enjoyed walking along the main street seeing all the vendors.  Of course, we had to stop at the Upper Crust for another blueberry scone! 

From there we drove down the only road that leads to Caspersen Beach to show them the Venetian Waterway Trail and to walk along the shoreline at Caspersen Beach looking for sharks teeth.  Only found a few pieces.

Then we headed to our favorite beach - Nokomis and spent 4 1/2 hours soaking in the sun, finding sharks teeth and shells, and reading.  Ate our packed lunch on the beach. 

We stayed until about 6 so we could have Cindy and John experience the drum circle.  Boy, it is amazing how many people show up every Wed. and Saturday evening for the drum circle "Event". 

This gentleman is quite the body builder
and has a special "ritual" he does at
every drum circle.  Looks like a sun or
just thankful for the day form of worship!

Then back to Willie to change and play another shuffleboard competition and it was a great night for the ladies.  We actually won 2 out of 3.  Yes!!!!  Then we headed to one of my favorite places for dinner, Sonny's for their pulled pork sandwich and baked sweet potato with cinnamon butter.  What could be better!!!  Everyone thought their food was delicious.  We called it a night at 9:30 after another very busy day in Paradise!!!!!  These days are flying!!!!!


  1. That sounds like an absolutely wonderful day!

  2. Thanks for the memories. Back in the early 70's we used to go to that beach lookin' for sharks teeth when we visited the wife's parents when they was a winterin' near Rotunda. On a bad day we would only sift out a quart jar full. Sounds like its still a load of fun but not nearly so successful as to how many you can find.

    Can remember going to see the first couple of Superstar competitions that were held there at Rotunda afore it got to popular and they moved it. It were paradise then to us, and its paradise now to you. It don't get much better than that.
