Saturday was "dump the black tank" day.....I think we went close to 13 days this time. While I was flushing the "cooties" out of the black tank I decided to multi-task and wipe off the T-Bird.....normally, for me, this is not a good idea, because sometimes I get caught up with one task and forget the other......use your imagination. This time it worked out well. We decided we would walk into town and browse around. It was a very humid day (around 89%) with a high of 81 degrees.....not as bad as I have experienced, but a lot warmer than we are aiming for.....:D By the time we reached dock street we decided we needed to cool down a little, so we stopped off at the Island Trading Company where we acquired two frappuccinos, then went outside to sit in the shade. Being that it was Saturday the town was packed with weekenders. We sat there with smug smiles on our faces, because we knew we didn't have to leave this paradise on Sunday to head back to a sticks and bricks life.....we get to stay!
From there we walked over to 2nd street to see what was for sale in the Deja Vu consignment store. TLE found some purplish earrings to go with her purple summer dress she got in Chiefland the day before, and a tank top........she deferred on several paperback books she saw.....whew!
The picture taken at the Blue Desert Cafe (above) was taken by TLE using her new IPhone camera set on panorama......other than a little distortion in my profile, I think it came out great! We knew going in that the service at this cafe was slow, but the food is great, and we were not disappointed on either count. Of course, we are on island time, and enjoyed the time before our food arrived to talk, and talk, and talk......great conversation followed by great food.
The walk home involved more conversation, and before we knew it we were home and it was only 8:45......just in time to catch the end of the Ravens vs. Broncos game, lost in double overtime by the Broncos.....a very close game. The second game between the Packers and 49ers saw the 49ers emerge victorious. Sunday there will be two more NFL playoff games, so you know where I will be starting at 1pm!
And, thus we come to the end of another delightful day at Cedar key.
