02-18-19 Beach Day

It promised to be a beautiful day although we started it late, sleeping in. We had a leasirly morning then headed to the beach. The destination was the beach down the road so Watson could come with us. We walked for a while then found a fairly shallow spot to cross a tidal pool so we could go further out where the sand was higher. Watson was a trooper and was not too upset about going through some water to go further out. Walking along the sand bar we discovered a very small crab about the size of a silver dollar and a fairly large jellyfish that met it's fate in the surf. Pictures

We enjoyed the sea and sun then headed into town for a late lunch. Marg and I picked The Fish Market where you can choose your fish right from the case and how it's prepared. It was delicious.

When we returned it was time to have a little rest then get ready for our cocktail party with Stan and Diane. We went to their camper just up the road and stayed and talked for hours. It was a really fun evening and we especially liked the rising full moon over the ocean.

02-19-19 Departure Day

Marg's flight was late in the day so we wanted to head to town for a breakfast at our favorite spot, The Funky Pelican. Unfortunately the weather was not cooperating, it was too cold and windy for outside dining so we went to a restaurant that a friend of mine recommended. It is a local hangout 2 blocks off the ocean called Friend's Cafe. It is more of a diner type eatery, with all kinds of character and characters. There were license plates from all over the country hanging on the walls with an occasional local picture. The food was outstanding, I would definitely go back.

Then it was time to head to Jacksonville airport to make it to the plane on time. The traffic wasn't too bad so all was well. It was sad saying good-bye but we had a great time and there will be more.
