|Reunited with Friends from Texas!|
I had been following the progress of our friends from Clearlake, Our Way Too, who had departed on December 21st headed this way on the fast track. Their SPOT showed them arriving in Tarpon Springs a few hours after our arrival here in Clearwater! We may have crossed paths out there on the water for all I know! I was happy to know that they were safe and sound and within visiting range!

|Sponge Diving Attire|
The sponges sold now are mostly imports, although there has been some attempt to revive the industry, which may indicate a future comeback success.
The movie: Beneath The 12 Mile Reef was filmed here and tells about Sponge Diving back in the day.
I probably could use a sponge or two on the boat but I'm really trying not to buy everything I see... It's a sickness!
We hadn't intended having dinner out, but when we were teased by the incredible aroma of Greek Cuisine... we could not resist! We chose Mykonos as our dinner spot and words can not describe how delicious our dinner was. To say that I was pleasantly surprised would be an understatement. The prices were more than reasonable and the food was freshly prepared and every bite had a life of it's own. Two Thumbs UP for Mykonos!
