TOTAL MILES TRAVELED TODAY: 0 NM
Busy, busy day on the Quest today! The ugly, old rug is gone and we now have a much more practical, eye pleasing and inviting carpet throughout the boat. The guys did a great job laying it and I love it! By the way, we pulled out the disgusting old ice maker so we have another project to find something to fill the empty cavity.
|OLD CARPET OUT|
Just as the carpet layers were finishing up, Richard and Barbara Feingold arrived in their snazzy new Audi convertible. Cute car! They were on their way to Miami for the Hanukkah Holidays with their family. They now hold the title for most visits to the Quest. We walked to 220 for a lovely dinner then played a rousing game of Farkle that they brought for our amusement. I didn’t win.
|FEINGOLDS' CUTE AUDI|
Friday morning brought the service man for the heating and air-conditioning units, Richard and Barbara’s departure and the guy to measure for the mirror replacements in the guest stateroom. Hopefully we will have those installed on Monday.
|SO LONG FEINGOLDS|
Afternoon Dan picked up our weekend ride from Enterprise, a cute little VW Bug. They have such a great weekend deal you can’t afford to pass it up. You can rent from Friday, have to return by Monday and it is $10.00 per day. Sweet deal!
|OUR WEEKEND RIDE|
Robert arrived at the Tampa Airport around 4:00 PM and we welcomed him with hugs. We all laughed at the reunion for this makes the third time we have seen him in the last week and a half. “Larry the water taxi guy” picked us up for a ride to That’s Amore for another yummy Italian dinner then, later, we introduced Robert to the Farkle game.
Boat Show in St. Petersburg today!! We hopped into our cute little “Bug” and joined the horde in St. Petersburg. This was a busy weekend there with a parade (going on just as we were trying to maneuver our way around town), a man made ice-slide for those poor, snow deprived Florida kids, the weekly Farmers Market and the Boat Show. We saw more boat stuff than I thought possible. We did investigate the satellite television equipment a little more and that may be Dan’s new project.
|BOATS, BOATS BOATS!|
Robert found, after much searching, the perfect Mexican restaurant for dinner. Our journey took us through backed up traffic for the Lightning Bolt hockey game in down town Tampa and out through some of the less desirable areas before we found the little Taco Bus restaurant. We had yummy tacos, burritos and brought home some tamales for tomorrow. Good job Robert!
|OPEN 24 HOURS A DAY|
|GOOD JOB, ROBERT!|
