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 cocktails, dinner (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 reconnecting, reminiscing, and getting updates on what folks are doing.
