Been home from vacation for 6 days, still trying to catch up on work and things that were put on hold for two weeks. Left for Bristol to stay for a night with my brother and friends on Oct. 29, left there the morning of the 30th, to head to port st. lucia in florida to stay with Ralph and Betsy, we loved the area, we decided to leave with Ralph and Betsy to head to their new home for the next five months in Miami, where we got a flat tire from a knife blade that got embedded in our tire on the highway. Couldn`t be on old tires, they were newer, The only good thing was there were highway people who stopped us on side of highway and came to our rescue and took tire off and replaced it with our spare. they were even ready to plug tire, but it was bad.Half hour later we were on way to campground. They were nice to us when we checked in, even got some avocados from their trees. Stayed with Ralph and Betsy for the night and left there on November 1st. Headed to the keys, stopped at Daytona to have dinner at our favorite place, drove the night and arrived at key west on November 1st. to pick up our friends at airport and to check in to our resort for 10 days. What a great time. Rented scooters for a week. Friends left after four days, which was Saturday the 5th, Ralph and Betsy came to the keys for three days and we went over to visit her brothers place and we went swimming at his house and had lunch there and a few beers. Went out out dinner with them two nights. Had so much fun. We found a new restaurant, guys that owned it were from Ohio. It was amazing,lobster mac and cheese to die for.Dessert was awesome and unusual. . They left on Thursday morning. Bob and I checked out a day earlier from the keys and stayed a night in Daytona. Again great dinner and shopped at the largest harley dealer, shopped till we dropped. It was fun drive home we stopped at all harley dealers thru florida and Georgia,and South Carolina.It was so much fun.Ran into a free Jimmy Buffet concert while in keys. Glad I had my parrot hat with me.
