We splurged today and went out for lunch at Crabs. Not a very inspiring name, I'll admit, but it really fits in with the Spring Break mentality that is very obvious around here! It really was a very good lunch and the splurge was bringing home 2 (two) pieces of Key Lime Pie!
And really, the restaurant's serving of pie is 2 pieces, so we felt like we hit the jackpot! We took it back to the trailer and indulged ourselves since it was too wet and windy and cool to walk the beach! Find joy wherever you can! We started sampling key lime pie 3 years ago with our friends, Bob and Debbie, when we vacationed together on Anna Maria Island. It takes a lot of sampling to find the best stuff!
We continued the taste tests 2 years ago when we again vacationed together near Seaside in the panhandle of FL. We had more time to spend on sampling the pie and seafood on that trip. Sure hope we can do something like that again!
After a good long walk this morning, we set to work on making some new video content for my Youtube channel. It can be a little frustrating at times when we're outside trying to plan who will stand where, what I will say (or not say), what angle the sun is shining, etc. And then we have military jets overhead and noisy vehicles driving past! We did get some things recorded, but then I decided that it was not working well so it's back to the drawing board! At least we got a few run-throughs so we can anticipate what needs to be changed.
Do any of you recognize this screenshot? This is a little game called Woody. Bob and I like to play it off and on. Well, Bob is a huge Wordy champ now because he reached a high score of 27,696! My best score is 7,332, and I thought I was doing well! Bob has worked on this over a few days to get up to that total, just doing short spells and never losing. The game keeps running as long as you still have spots open for the shapes that pop up in those boxes at the bottom. If you complete a row either vertically or horizontally, the blocks disappear and you have more places to place the next shapes. As you can see, Bob finally met his match with no way to get that strip of 5 blocks into the puzzle. It's a free game in the app store, and I would like to know if you play it and what your top score has been!
Not much happening today, other than a trip to the grocery store and lunch out at a place called the Shrimp Basket. It was just a small cafe, average food, above average waitress, and the BEST Key Lime Pie so far! It was really delicious, and had some caramel sauce on the plate just to make it irresistable! We had our regularly scheduled zoom call with the Hansen siblings (every other Sunday) and caught up on family happenings. Bob has 7 siblings, and usually most check in for the call, but we were missing one this time. It's a good way to feel like we are all still in sync. We haven't held our usual family gatherings since Covid started, and we miss that.
We are gathering up and putting away things to prepare for leaving tomorrow morning. We have really liked this campground, and would love to come back. We are going to have to make more effort to look for reservations as soon as available for the future. In the FL State Park system, anyone can make a reservation up to 11 months in advance. Often, some of these parks are so popular that the sites are booked up as soon as they are released. Looks like we'll have to set an alarm!
Thank you for stopping by! I appreciate the time you have taken to look for and read my story. I hope you find something that you like!
