When we have a little free time, Scott and I like to go explore areas that we have never been to. So, we open up a map of Florida, check out some cities that sound interesting then google them to see what kind of excitement they have to offer. Tarpon Springs, the sponge capitol of the world, was the winner for last Saturday's excursion. When Scott told me it was the sponge capitol of the world I first thought it was called that because people just soak everything up when they go there, but no, it is LITERALLY the sponge capitol of the world. It it is a little Greek Community and there are shops everywhere to buy sponges from the ocean. I have never seen so many, nor will ever own one. They are expensive little things. Scott and I first hit up a little Greek restaurant called, "Mamma's." After stuffing our faces with Gyros and Baklava, we walked around the little town. Who would have thought that we would even see Santa...four of them. They walked out of a restaurant and I told Scott that those guys were santa and I wanted a picture with them. After hearing, "No" a few times, he finally took my picture. These guys really were Santa's and were having a meeting. One gave me his card that on the back said, "Shhhh...I am the real Santa." Cute
This was actually another little town we visited called Dunedin. There was an art show/walk and there were exhibits all up and down thier main street. We had to take pictures of the random birds we found hanging out on top of this house.
We were still so full from lunch so we had a very light dinner which consisted of: Cheese and Crackers, Hummus and Fruit.
