Today was fun and sad- again! Our friends on Serenity and Young at Heart moved on this morning, and we miss them already. We did find some interesting things to do, never fear. We strolled along Old Main Street through the weekly Farmers' Market. It's just a few block from our marina, with vendors selling everything from jewelry to seafood. It was a lovely morning for the market.

 The strawberries from Plant City are ready, and sooo delicious !

We also bought some huge Royal Red shrimp. Sautéed in butter and garlic, they taste a lot like lobster.

This afternoon we drove to the Robinson Nature Preserve, a few miles from our marina. It's located on the Manatee River where it flows into the Bay. There are several miles of trails, and a good variety of wildlife in the salt marshes and waterways. We saw a lot of bicyclists, kayakers, walkers and runners. It's a holiday weekend and the weather is ideal, so everyone wants to enjoy the outdoors.
