Let the Good Times Roll, 2/04/2017

Last weekend, four of us that worked together and became friends in the 1990s in the Philadelphia area, got together for dinner at the Palm Pavilion ( in Clearwater Beach, FL. Bonnie and Lynn relocated to this part of Florida years ago, leaving the cold winters of PA behind. Pattie and her husband, Dennis, still live in PA, but spend 6 weeks or more in the Tampa Bay Area each winter. 

Thanks to FaceBook, we all realized we were in the same area, and made plans to meet for dinner. We decided to meet in Clearwater Beach on a Saturday night. This turned out to be a pretty bad decision, because the traffic to the town was horrible and it was difficult to find parking near the restaurant. Oh well, we all eventually made it and were seated on the patio next to the beach. 

We enjoyed cocktailsdinner (Pattie and I had the Grouper Sandwich that I thought was very good), the view, but most, importantly, catching up on each other's lives. We all now have grandchildren (well, Lynn has one on the way), and they are, of course, a wonderful source of joy and love in our lives.

We also enjoyed the band performing while we were there (since they were not too loud!)

I snapped few more pictures of the beautiful sunset over the Gulf from our table. 

As I have said before, one of the best things about our RV lifestyle, is getting together with friends (both old and new) all over the United States. It's always great fun reconnectingreminiscing, and getting updates on what folks are doing.
