On Saturday, we packed up and headed over to Tarpon Springs. I had been receiving some notices of a new RV park being built along the Gulf, and I wanted to check it out.
The first settlers arrived in Tarpon Springs in 1876, and by 1890, the sponge industry was going strong.
We had a delicious lunch of chicken and pork at Yiannis Greek Restaurant, and it included a wonderfully sweet dessert called baklava. If you like sweet, you have to try it! Debbie and I walked the shops and gazed into the bakery windows we found along the way. Debbie laughed when a t-shirt clearly explained all she had experienced that day. It said - I'm not hollering...I'm Greek!
We even found one of our Freedom Boat Club franchises down at the waterfront, so it looks like we'll be returning up here to do a little boating. Our next adventure is boating down at Pine Island on Tuesday, which will give us a look at some bigger water, and a chance for Debbie to experience her first "cheeseburger in paradise" out at Cabbage Key!
