Wednesday, April 8 - Smiths Visit

Today Susan and Baxter Smith came up for the day from Tampa. We saw them last almost 2 years ago when we came to St. Pete's for Margie and Darren's wedding. We had a great day, a perfect day for a visit because it was comfortable weather, you wanted a sweater but it wasn't windy like it had been.
We sat around and caught up on the time in between visits and then we went for a tour of The Villages. The first stop was at Lake Sumter Landing. We walked around for awhile and then stopped at Toojays for lunch. After lunch we stopped in a lot of the stores on the way back to the car and Susan found some deals she couldn't resist.
Later in the day we hung out on the lanai and before dark we went into town for dinner. We were going to go to RJ Gator's, where we got our buzzer and had to wait. Since it was already so late and Susan and Baxter still had to drive back to Tampa, Susan and I went to check on the crowd at Up the Creek. We got there and we could be taken right away so we called the guys, they were just getting the word that we could be seated, but they came over anyway. Up the Creek was a better choice because we could have a conversation and enjoy a much quieter atmosphere.

I had parchment tilapia and Larry had some other style tilapia and we all enjoyed our meals.

It was a delightful day as we said goodbye and promised to stay in touch.
