Turtle Cove Marina, Tarpon Springs, FL
Total miles to date:  4320.3

The storms that have hit the south finally found us this morning and brought some gusty winds, rain, and thunder.  Fortunately it did not last long and the sun came back out for the rest of the day.  Time to get caught up on the blog, laundry, etc. 

Joyce and Gay walked a few short blocks along the Anclote River waterfront and visited most of the small shops this afternoon. The streets were crowded with tourists today but they enjoyed the browsing!

We went to dinner at Rusty Bellies with Gay and Mike and had great seafood!  Then we walked down to Hellas Greek Restaurant and Bakery (key word here is bakery) and we each came back to our boats with some pretty decadent chocolate desserts!  Joyce and Gay had scoped this place out earlier!

Hellas Bakery!

Sponge Diver Memorial
Gay and Mike will leave in the morning, so we said goodbye tonight.  We will look forward to seeing them again sometime!  Loopers paths cross frequently and that is always a nice surprise.
