Saturday Exploring


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

My little Sponge Boat Captain. Aye Aye

A "homemade" gift. Just for you Juls, MEOW!

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.

We ended the night watching the movie, "Juno"

I love to hear of your Saturday wanderings. You need to make a scrapbook of all the places and crazy pictures.

Any sign of Bob or Patrick? What did you think of Juno? (This is Scott's brother Dave, by the way).

Dave...I dont get the Bob or Patrick comment, BUT, we both like Juno. Was the from the movie? Scott watched it twice (well almost). A little crude, but overall pretty funny.

No fair, you guys got to go to the Sponge Docks? I've never been and it's on the top of our "places to go" list, but it keeps being pushed aside for things like cleaning the pool and laundry. Both your lunch and dinner sound so scrumptious.

all 4 kids are sleeping right now, can you believe it?!!!! A miracle.

You guys are so cute! It sounds like a lot of fun!

What a fun outing. I love that you are such explorers. Sadly, I did understand David's question about a Patrick and/or Bob sighting because I was wondering something similar: did the gift shops have any square pants for sale?

Lindsay said...

Haha. Scott figured it out last night. I asked him to read the comment because I did not understand it at all. After reading it once and thinking about it, he got it. Then of course I was like, "Oh yeah, duh!"
