– on the road enjoying the drive across the panhandle and along the northwest coast of Florida – we stopped at Crystal River. Not a beach town, it is located on the estuary of the river. Fishing, of course was primary and we had our first outdoor dinner. The next day – Tarpon Springs for lunch – then on to Treasure Island to visit the Allens. Antique stores on a cloudy day and the beach for the sun. We finished with a visit to Sandy’s favorite French restaurant, the Gulf Bistro.
