TOTAL MILES TRAVELED TODAY: 0 NM
It was an early wake-up call today with Robert’s flight leaving at 6:00 AM. Dan graciously took him to the Tampa Airport by about 4:45 and was back before 5:30. Being a Jet Blue employee, Robert flies standby. He made both of his flights and was soon back in Vermont, greeted by a snowy day.
Dan and I buzzed around in our little Bug most of the day. We did some more investigating on the satellite TV systems and I think he has found what he wants to get.
We also paid a visit to Don’s Marine Salvage in Clearwater. Dan was like a kid in a candy store! It was kind of like the old Pick-A-Part auto salvage yards. We scrounged through packed building as well as various piles of “goodies” and came out with several treasures.
Here is an interesting little fact about the Bay Shore area here where we are staying on Tampa’s Davis Island:. In 2004 the Bay Shore Little League won the Little League World Championship. They defeated Hawaii to cinch the US title and then won the championship by reigning over Venezuela. I’m sure Dan watched it as he tries to catch the Little League Championship each year. The marina is right by the Little League field and we walk by their sign that proudly announces their victory.
