Saturday, May 13 - We saw J. Roddy Walston and the Business at The Revelry Room in Chattanooga with our friends, Danny, Brenda and Bill tonight. Ashlee barely got in since she had left her ID at home, but thanks to the internet we got in. We had an excellent dinner before the show a couple doors down at Stir. It's very cool what Chattanooga has done with this area of town around the Choo Choo.
|HAIR's J Roddy Walston doing what he does best!|
|Cedar Key is definitely a small version of Key West with quite a blue collar on it. While they have a few bars to bide your time at including this cool tiki bar at the Low Key Hideway, this is a working town and a naturalist's paradise.|
|Just across the road from our rental house was the beautiful gulf a view of some of the flat key islands. We had good weather throughout our stay although the humidity had definitely found this place already.|
Saturday, May 20 - We had an active day today with an interesting and informative morning boat tour of some of the key islands and then a great airplane ride over them for a totally different perspective.
|Sea birds are the biggest inhabitants of this area outnumbering humans by a large percentage.|
|Our pilot, Marve, took us on a great 20-minute flight above the keys (this is Atsena Ote Key pictured here). Big thanks to Ashlee for saying we should go today since the weather was not cooperative the next day.|
Sunday, May 21 - We headed out of Cedar Key today and headed back south. We had a late evening flight back home from Tampa and most of the day to kill. On the way back, we stopped at the adorable Twistee Treat in Tarpon Springs for some ice cream. We really enjoyed tooling around in our sweet Mustang convertible during this trip. Enough so that we are thinking of a purchase of a used one in the near future.
Monday, May 22 - We were fortunate to attend the historic Game 6 of the NHL Western Conference Finals where our Predators had a 6-3 win over the Anaheim Ducks and will now be playing for the Stanley Cup!! We had terrific upper-deck, front row seats ( Section 327, Row A. Seats 10 and 11) that we will definitely try and get again We parked for free at Czann's Brewing beforehand and had a couple beers with our pal, Wayne. After the game we met up with our friends, Brenda and Danny, outside the arena with about 10,000 others who didn't make it inside. What a beautiful night and what a beautiful feeling!!
Saturday, May 27 - We attended our friends, Wil and Alyssa's Wedding tonight and it was a beautiful ceremony at the very nice Legacy Farms venue here in Wilson County. It was made even more memorable due to a power outage during the reception due to stormy weather, but a car-operated generator kept the lights on and the tunes blasting throughout the night of celebration.
