St. Armand's Circle

11-8-2014

We met at Bob Evans on Fletcher Ave.  and headed south down I-75 to Sarasota.  Near Ellenton, I-75 became one big parking lot.  For several miles, we would move forward about 20 or 30 feet and stop.  Move 20 or 30 feet and stop again.   When it finally cleared up (all for no obvious reason), we breathed a big sign of relief.  We finally got to Sarasota.  And, "OUILA !", another surprise.  There was a huge art show going on at the circle and traffic was at least as bad as we had it on I-75.  We had to break up and scatter to find individual parking spots - no sticking together.  But we made it and actually most of us parked pretty close together.  Then we walked about half a mile to the restaurant where we had reservations for lunch - Cha Cha Coconuts.  Pretty good place to eat.  After a good meal and some good time chatting with each other, we headed out, each on his own way.   Traffic problems forgotten, we enjoyed being together - AS ALWAYS.
