Ted and I picked up the rented Street Glides and launched from Tampa for Punta Gorda.
For now – I’ll just jot down a few bullets from the many places we visited.
-St Pete’s Beach
-Casa Key (38M$ houses)
-Passe-a-grille (great breakfast)
-Tons of other beaches
Ted and I stopped at PGI and spoke with a number of folks who live there. That was a valuable series of discussions, and just a nice way to spend a day.
Oh yeah-add Anna Maria Island (maybe Anne Maria Island). Captain John Stiles lived there. He was a retired Sub Commander who conducted flag ceremonies and played the anthems of all five miitary institutions every night until he dies. Really pissed off the locals. I know all of this because the locals repeatedly befriended us and put forth all the history.
I’ll add more as I think of it….
Continued…. back to the flying posts.
