Lord, Love A Duck & Other Shenanigans

We aren’t ready to go home yet, but it’s time to fly back to Florida this weekend. Here’s a look back at some of the fun we had this time.

FAVORITE HANGOUTS
The Coconut Tree Bar & Restaurant is located over the popular scuba dive center of the same name.  It’s got the perfect location, right at the West End turnabout. I recommend it for a day drink or two, good eats, hanging with old friends (Bonnie and Mark – I’m blaming that table full of empties on you two!) and making new ones (in fact, come to think of it, I am pretty sure we met most of our new ones there) – – not to mention people-watching on the street and dock below, with some of the best views of sunset and cruise ship sailings.

The fact that they have a pool (thank you, Jesus, on some of these hot days) is part of it. The nightly dollar-beer specials help. Not to mention the million-dollar view. Oh, and those mojitos. But mostly it’s been the shenanigans with these guys.

We also field-tripped it over the holiday weekend to Guava Grove  – the other nearby place with a pool – where the shenanigans continued. How better to celebrate Canada Day and the 4th of July than with a pool-noodle competition (our clear winner Nicki pulled off a 6-noodle stand and definitely earned that chardonnay).

But Lands End was the place this time around.

I’m pretty sure we can blame the full moon for all of it. Cheers!
