so here is how we spent the time together-
lunch upon their arrival at the Riverhouse-
then a quick trip over to the South Florida Museum to visit Snooty for his last feeding time of the day- then dinner at Blue Marlin (a favorite of ours)
the crocodile god - the logo of the museum-
Day Two included the historic Anna Maria Island tour of the old homesteads of the past three generations of my family down here- LOL - after a breakfast at the popular Peach's on East Bay Drive.... and also after a stop at the beach on AMI- then we went home and got Phil for a lunch at Captain Brian's.
The beach was quite crowded by our standards and I laughed when I saw how much my photo resembled the Keith Oehmig painting in our living room- except for the absence of clouds LOL-
Odd how the days get away- because shortly thereafter we were heading south to Fogartyville for a concert of Full Set- and excellent Irish band that we thoroughly enjoyed... afterward we grabbed a burger for a later meal and headed home.

Day Three we went to the Pirates game against the Red Sox and then later to our fave Italian place- Cafe Baci.
our dinner red- was just perfect- showed fabulously- despite its age- 25 years old!
the next morning it was back to the airport to drop them off for what turned out to be a smooth flight home and mild weather for them and an amazing evening out for us (more on that in another post)...
