Kayaking on the Weeki Wachee

We had a small group show up for our kayaking trip on the Weeki Wachee.  Everyone had a great time on the sunny day.   With the warm weather we enjoyed a swim.  We saw a manatee, which paddled under Kay’s kayak.  She thought it was going to flip her but all went well.  We launched at the top of the river at Weeki Wachee Springs State Park and took the shuttle back when we reached Roger’s Park.  It was a great day for all.

May Monthly Dinner at Tom + Chee

Our May monthly dinner was at Tom + Chee, a grilled cheese sandwich restaurant in St. Petersburg.  The night we dined there was a rainy night.  Not sure if the weather had anything to do with it but there seemed to be a few people picking up large takeout orders. A grilled cheese on a rainy day is always good.

Who knew there were so many ways to make a grilled cheese!  They have several specialty sandwiches such as the Flying Pig (roasted turkey, bacon, pickle and smoked gouda cheese with hardy white bread)  or the Hippy Chee (hummus, cucumber, diced tomatoes, mixed greens and cheddar cheese on a wheat berry bread).  Or you can make your own, choosing from three breads, five cheese plus five more premium cheeses that cost an extra dollar.

For dessert, they have a selection of grilled cheese donuts.  We chose to share the Choco Bacon Bliss, a grilledcheese donut with bacon, chocolate pieces, mozzarella, chocolate mascarpone.   It was very good.  We look forward to returning here.
