Looking around

Today we drove around looking at everything. We drove to Tampa and went to a quilt shop that advertises to be the largest quilt shop in Florida. It was large! Have you ever been to a shop that was so large you got overwhelmed? I was there today! The way I shop at a new store is to quickly walk around the whole store and get an overview of the offerings. Then go back to the areas of interest. Well it took me about 25 minutes to quickly scan the place! Then I tried to go back to the places I was interested in, but couldn't remember where they were. LOL
I did buy something, but only a pattern. I was just overloaded.

After leaving the quilt shop we drove and drove and drove until I was sure we were close to home, but no we were just driving the coast road where all the tourist go to spend the summer and winter. I have never seen so many hotels and condos in my life! They were so close together you couldn't even see the water.

For dinner we went to a place that advertises they make Texas Bar-B-Que, well I am here to tell you I am from Texas and that was not Bar-B-Q! That was rotiserie chicken, they didn't even put sauce on it. It just goes to show everyone has an idea of what BBQ is.

I did take some pictures of some of the birds we have seen. There are so many different kinds that I have never seen before.

We saw some Spoonbills but didn't have out camera with us. They sure were pretty.
Tomorrow we drive back home. I sure will be glad to see the kids again. I am not sure I could move without them if Ray got the job. I will just let God deal with that!
