Wendy Comes to Visit...Day 6 (and so does Dan)

This was a busy day!  

Wendy and Dan dropped us off at the bank to walk the dog and they went to the farmer's market at the History Park.  We walked to the Linear Park and back, arriving with a few minutes to spare before they picked us up.

Duded up in my St. Patrick's Day finest.
We dropped the dog off at home and headed to Ft. Myers for a Twins spring training game at Hammond Stadium.
Seats behind home plate, in the shade. yay!
The stadium received a nice renovation during the off season, including a boardwalk all the way around.

It was different watching a game where we didn't care which team won.  At least we were able to applaud a good play and drink expensive beer and eat crappy, expensive food.

They have very strange artwork in the lady's restroom.

It was a picture perfect day.  The Twins beat the Marlins 4 - 2.

We were home by 4:30, Wendy and Dan took a quick trip to Beall's but came home empty handed.

We went to dinner at The IceHouse Pub, one of our favorite places in Punta Gorda. While we were waiting for a table, we had time to try our hands at darts.
"I think it's a dart board, what do you think?"

AND the winners are...
Boy, did we get lucky!
From there we dragged them to the Celtic Ray, our other favorite place.  One of the bands we discovered was Flurgin, a kind of Dropkick Murphy's Irish band.  We thoroughly enjoyed them last year but this year, not so much.
They were at least 30 minutes late getting started and were very loud.  I hate it when I can't hear the singing because the music is so loud and it just sounds like screaming.  Dan said he enjoyed the people watching; I think he was being polite.  They were both cold and Wendy had a headache, as did I.  We lasted till 10:15 and headed home.

Last year we had a blast at the St. Patrick's Day celebration; this year was disappointing.  

Thanks for stopping by...
