My Dear friend Mary, whom I’ve know from school, and her husband Don, spent most of the winter in Florida and we got a chance to meet up with them at Ft. Pierece.
Ft pierce is a 340-acre Florida State Park located just north of the Fort Pierce Inlet. It consists of beaches, dunes and a coastal hammock between the Atlantic Ocean and the waters of Tucker Cove, an indentation of the Indian River Lagoon. It’s a smaller day use park with activities like fishing, swimming, picnicking, hiking, birding, scuba diving and snorkeling and there also is a half-mile beach. “Surfing is also very popular here because of the different windswells from distant groundswells hat makes for good surf.” I have no idea what that means, but it sounds good.
Mary & Don treated us to lunch for our anniversary at Sharky’s restaurant in Ft. Pierce, it was very good! The time went by way to fast as it always does when your visiting with old treasured friends that have been part of your life thru good and bad. Love you both!
Old Friends, old clothes, old books. One needs constants in a traveling life.

We also got to show our friends Barb & Bill around Bill Baggs!
We met Barb & Bill at Pennekamp State Park in 2019 when we were all volunteering for the first time. We also got to spend time with them volunteering at Pennekamp this year. They came up to visit us for the day at Bill Baggs. We walked around the park and took them to the Ligthouse and cabin.
We all walked up the lighthouse stairs to see the beautiful view!
Bill & Barb treated us to a very good dinner at the Boater’s Grill inside Bill Baggs ! !
We had a great day showing our good friends around the park! Looking forward to seeing them in Key Largo next year for more good times!
