Josie and I did one whole morning of antiquing, and we were lucky enough to find a great addition to her collection. That day we passed by a restaurant that said it had a "Hall of Fame" Cuban Sandwich so we had to stop in and try one. It was large enough we split one and also had a side of delicious black beans.
I played a round of golf at the Dunedin Country Club and was surprised to find that it was designed by the famous golf course architect, Donald Ross, and that many of the greatest golfers in the world had played there.
A few days later we returned to Egmont Key and fished the area. We had a fun day catching Speckled Trout, Spanish Mackerel, Lady Fish and beautiful Perch. We practiced catch and release and let them all go.
While Tom and I fished the ladies went antiquing and Josie found a Salt and Pepper set for her collection at a store Paula knew about. They went out to lunch and then came back and played Mah Jongg.

Later in the week we had at dinner at a fun local place, called the Linger Lodge. It was owned by taxidermist for many years so the place is decorated with dead animals many of which he found on the road. He even printed up a road kill menu.
We were very surprised when we were contacted by an old friend from Virginia who saw a post of ours on Facebook and realized we were staying only 2 miles from where he is now living. Bob and his friend Marty invited us over to their beautiful home for drinks and then we had another great dinner at the Linger Lodge. Bob is the uncle of the first family Josie was a Nanny for, and we have known him for years. We had a great time catching up.
