I always enjoy watching the quilts sell at the Haiti Benefit Auction. So often they just don't bring what I think they are worth.
The folks from Meigs, GA made blooming onions for lunch.
We left after lunch and went to Sarasota Jungle Gardens.
We ... being Paul and me, ...
... my cousin Ann Marie and Adan, and ...
... my sister Coleen and Glen.
The flamingos were so pretty and would eat right out of our hands. Wouldn't it be wonderful if they could survive on our pond?
And I loved the beautiful colors of the parrots...
... but wasn't too fond of all these alligators!
The walk through the gardens was also pretty.
And then it was time to head on up the road. Paul and I chose to travel along the coast just west of Tampa crossing the Sunshine Skyway Bridge.
We stopped at Treasure Island, walked out onto the beach, and watched the kites for a while.
And then it was time to head on north for home.
