The birthday week started with breakfast out Sunday morning at Rosemary and Thyme in historic downtown Sarasota.
Monday night we met Mike and Brittany for supper at The Cheesecake Factory. Dave picked it, and he doesn’t even like cheesecake! The rest of us had Vanilla Bean, Oreo, and Toasted Marshmallow cheesecake. Yum!
Tuesday night we tried The Old Salty Dog on Siesta Key. Dave has always wanted to try it. The food was good. Siesta Key is a ghost town right now because of the red tide. Our selfie from Tuesday:
Dave has been shopping for a smoker for his birthday gift. The plan is to pick it up Wednesday from Lowe’s. Pics coming!
We were supposed to go to Tampa this week and pick up books from the printer’s. We were going to make a day of it to celebrate Dave’s birthday and visit The Florida Aquarium while there. The printer’s are struggling right now with employment shortages, so the pick up day keeps getting pushed back. But it will happen …
You might have noticed the dearth of outdoor activities and pictures right now. Heat + rain = indoors for August. August is our January, LOL.
