Day 20 Bucket List Trip

What’s a vacation without a beach trip

Today Crystal and I took a little drive to. Sweet town Called Tarpon Springs. It was a cute little Greek side village. Specializing in catchy beach items, Greek food and natural sponges. 

We spent our time tooling around the shops and seeing if there was absolutely anything we couldn’t live without, which of course there was.  Then we had a nice Greek meal at a very Greek restaurant. Where they yelled “UMPA!!” When they set the fish on fire.  I felt very much back in Italy, with the white Roman statues placed behind my head.  

After shopping for an hour or so we took off to a park called “Howard Park”. It was this beautiful green park just off of a very high end residential area. Once you drove through the lush green trees and picnic benches,

You hit the bay and the road extends, like its own extended pier, with crisp blue water on both sides of you. This wonderful road deposits you onto an island that has white sandy beaches all the way around.

The water was a perfect 78 degrees. It felt like you were taking a salty bath. The water was so clear you could see the fish swimming around you.  It didn’t take crys and I long to get in the water and yet we stayed in there for while.  

  We just sat or squat so we were fully emerged and let the waters lap at our chests. We just taked and talked, like we hadn’t been able to talk for months.  

It’s been years since I’ve been able to go swimming and I can’t tell you how amazing it felt. I want to go again before I go!!

I’m going to miss Crys, Karl and Johnny so much when I leave.
