Kids on Vacation

Daughter Angel and Grand daughter Brooke arrived here last Thursday night at 11:30pm. 20160211_181702The bed was made and awaited them when they arrived.

Everyone was up and ready to go by 8:30am Friday, and the first thing on the agenda was to “get some sun”.20160212_124747

They will be here for 6 days leaving at 6am next Friday morning. There is just so much to do in such a short time! 12688380_10153855446515138_562882996658582586_n - Copy

Angel even got a chance to see “Rusty the Gator” at our sister RV Park next door. Rusty is the name that was given him because of his rust color probably from the culvert that he stays in.

They just “hung out” around the RV park, riding the bikes taking in all the sunshine and view’s. That evening we went out to dinner at Cracker Barrel. 20160213_174637


Much has been planned for today, a trip to Fisherman’s Village and from there dinner at Lashley Crab House. Fisherman’s Village is one of our special places to visit in Punta Gorda. Many shops to wander through, a beautiful marina, and more than one restaurant if you are in for a meal of any kind.

              The warm sunshine kept our spirits high and what a wonderful day we all had at Fisherman’s Village.



We had 4pm reservations at Lashley’s Crab House for dinner, so we left Fisherman’s Village with plenty of time on our hands. We knew with it being Valentine’s Day that Lashley’s would be very crowded, which it was. 20160214_14330220160214_143245

Being very early, we had to wait before they would check us in. So we decided to walk over to their Marina and take in the view’s.




We were notified after an hour’s wait that our table was ready. An outdoor “waterside” table with a great view that was worth waiting for. IMG_124920160214_160244


Wilma and Angel ordered the King Crab leg dinner. 20160214_162821


Brooke ordered a Ribeye Steak dinner. IMG_1254

I ordered the “Lobster Lobster Lobster” dinner.IMG_1253

You just can’t explain the delicious dinner’s we had. Brooke even made a comment how good her steak was and gave us all a small taste. I have to say it was the best steak I have ever had! Not to mention the Lobster and the taste of of King Crab that I had. It’s one of those restaurants that you go to once a year on special occasions.

Returning home, we sat out under the awning and talked about what a great day it had been. Angel and Brooke decided to take a bike ride to the boat ramp on Lettuce Lake before nightfall. 12697267_10153858231380138_3288955970148933434_o
