This week Alice and I went on a mini vacation. We headed out Monday to North Fort Meyers to visit family. The first evening we went out to dinner at "Joe's Crab Shack." It was a fun meal. We ate things we do not normally get. Fried calamari and shrimp.
Beautiful sunset over the Ft. Meyers waterway.
The next day we visited a town called "Ave Maria." It is a town built around a catholic church. It was built by the owner of Dominos Pizza. There is a University there also.
On Wednesday we decided to leave. We headed up the coast to the St. Pete beach area. We stopped before the sky bridge to check hotels.com for a room.
We were amazing to book a room at the beautiful "Don Cesar." It is our favorite place!!!
(I booked the room for 1/4 of the price. Last minute get aways are perfect for finding just the right deals.)
The view from our room!
Curried steam muscles with cashew butter sauce.
(I could have drank the whole bowl!)
Carrot cake with caramel and chocolate raspberry sauce.
A very happy pair!

It was a beautiful and relaxing mini vacation!
