A Gorgeous Day in Florida!

What a special day in Florida!  The 4 of us left the CG at 10 to go to the weekly farmers market at Englewood.  We had been their 1 time last year and it is a very nice market with lots of organic items, crafts, bakeries, coffees, veggies, fresh fish, etc.  We enjoyed some freshly baked healthy cookies that were delicious.  Together we bought a quart of paella that was being cooked in a huge wok type pot.  Chef Ef, who made it, was quite a showman when putting it in the foil pie type plate, covering it, and then sealing it in a plastic bag.  While there we saw Rick and Joyce who were making their 1st visit to the market.

The market was very crowded!

Quite a potful!

Lots of good citrus fruit!

Plenty of good fruit and veggies!

We left there and planned to go to Englewood Beach or Stump's Pass, but both parking lots were full, so we decided to go to Manasota Beach. 

It is a beautiful drive along the Gulf from Englewood to
Manasota Beach!

The 4 of us sat at a table overlooking the Gulf eating the delicious paella.  When we walked down to the beach, Rick and Joyce were following us.  The 6 of us had a great time on the beach looking for shells and shark's teeth and the weather was perfect for a day at the beach!

Here come Ernie and Noela walking along the water!

Time to rest from shark tooth hunting and read a good
Nicholas Sparks book!

Okay, I can only read so long!

Here come Rick and Joyce from their
shark tooth hunt!

Time to leave the beach, but just for today!  More beach days
to come!!!

We got back to the CG around 6, showered and had delicious salads for dinner. We went over to Ernie and Noela's around 8 and played a rather long game of Uno with the women being victorious.  It was a fun game.  We were in bed by 10:30 after a busy day!
