Diary of a homeowners vacation - 7
Well I like to go to the Gulf Coast at least one day per trip and today was the day, so we got up early and pottered around the villa getting organised and packing a little cooler with cold drinks and Scooby snacks and left the villa about half 9.
We had a pleasant trip over towards Tampa and Clearwater and onto Tarpon Springs where we had a lovely day wandering round this lovely town, the weather was lovely too as it had been a wee bit cloudy over in Orland. . . . bonus!
Firstly we had coffee and Baklava. . . yum! We then took a great boat trip where we saw 2 Dolphins in the wild and caught too much sun! It was glorious and I really felt like I was on holiday at that moment in time, there were lots of vacationers on the boat and everyone was having a laugh together!
We then had a late fab lunch in one of the many Greek restaurants and had another wander round the little shops and bought some sponges etc. Hubby even found a guy to talk football about as the Greeks as are passionate as the Brit supporters, I was too busy shopping to care abut the football talk!
We left about 4 pm as we were also out for dinner that evening with friends. It took us a little longer to get back because of rush hour and then 30 minutes after arriving home, showered and changed we picked up our friends and went for dinner, we were whacked so were pleased when Chilis at Champions’ Gate was mentioned as it was 2 minutes away from the villa and I was driving that night as hubby had driven all day, to and back from Tarpon Springs.
We had a nice light dinner of Caesar Salad with Lime Shrimp. . . yum, and I watched everyone else tuck into their cocktails as I sipped my strawberry lemonade but that was 2 for 1 also so didn’t feel too left out.
Only managed to stay out til 10 pm and came home although we had been invited to pop in and see some other neighbours on our way home but we were too whacked and gave it a rain check before a little potter before collapsing into bed ready for a fun filled day and night as we were off to Universals Haloween Horror nights the following evening!
