my mom lives on the gulf coast of florida
and when we go, we love visiting the greek coastal town of
this intimate little coastal town is known for its sponges
from swinging on fishing boats
to bins overflowing with them along main street
merchants waiting for tourists to touch and squeeze them
in hopes they'll buy a few
and sponges aren't all that can be found
in fact, i found a couple of adorable summer dresses....
who can resist colorful beachy fabrics that are swaying in the gulf breezes?
now, let's turn our attention
to the opposite side of main street
where the birds hang
look at that luscious red beak....
the better to kiss you with, my dear
just watch those feet, please
now...movin' on to the boats
they come and they go
smiles are everywhere
and the day wouldn't be complete
without having an early dinner at dimitri's
where the saganaki is superb
then, dessert at hellas
where the greek pastries are to die for!
i hope you enjoyed this little stroll around tarpon springs
sorry, i haven't been around much lately,
but i will soon be making my rounds to visit all my peeps
i've missed you guys!
