The Florida Keys

Woo Hoo !!!!  We just booked into the Florida Keys for the month of Dec !!  Bob and Laverne and Bill and Linda will be traveling with us for this trip too !!!  Woo Hoo !!!!  Can't wait to go back to the "Keys" !!!!

Punta Gorda, Florida

This was a day trip that we took down to Punta Gorda, looking for a fishing peer that we could fish from.  We ended up at Fisherman's Village here in Punta Gorda and did a bit of shopping there.  They have a great restaurant there called The Captains Table. 

Linda 1 and Linda 2

Linda and I spent hours at the beach looking for sharks teeth.  The only thing exciting I found was a hermit crab living in a shell.  We had a great time even if I looked like a lobster that night... and yes, I did have sunscreen on... 15.  Guess it wasn't good enough. 

Tickle, tickle, tickle.....

We were at the Tampa, Florida RV Show when we ran into Rainbow (on the left).  Our friend Laverne seems to be smiling from a joke he told.

Wednesdays and Saturdays were Pickle Ball mornings at the sports complex in North Port not very far from where we were camped in Venice.  It's unreal to think that we could possibly miss the ball with the size of these paddles, but it happens all the time !  Love to play with our very close friends, Bob and Laverne.

Butch's Birthday Dec 12, 2011

We gave Butch a surprise birthday party... most of everything he got was to make him into a "character clown".  He complained that he didn't have a comfortable seat when he played bingo, so Linda made him a cushion.  His character is a golfer.. hense the "Tee Shirt".  He also got some crazy socks, a golf cap, suspenders to hold up his nickers.  He seems pretty happy with everything !  We do have to change his name now.. from "Nothing" to

Friends that shared his birthday are Bob,  aka Silly Willie, Laverne, aka Fluffy, Bill and Linda, soon to be a part of the clown family.

The sunset at Nikomis Beach.  Breathtaking.  I will be back.  I really miss this place.
