Recently we had a chance to get back to Siesta Key. In the past it was voted America's #1 Beach. There, we enjoyed our second stay at a little retro place called Captiva. It's one of a group of lodging facilities on Sara Sea Circle, The facility has...
On our way home from a trip up north, we were looking to find somewhere to explore and a wonderful restaurant at which to dine. We saw the sign for the DeLand Historic District. Subsequently, Mrs. Funmeister found the Santorini Restaurant home of Greek cuisine. This was the start...
Mosquito County Tours is a business that is going places. We blogged in the past about Mandy Longo's creation when we first discovered it. Since that time we have tried to make a weekend where we could get together and try a tour for ourselves. Earlier this month, the...
We have stayed at a couple of Best Western Motels in the past. There even were a couple of former Best Westerns that had been converted under the Baymont flag. For the most part they were OK, but in the long run were not that great. Our stay at...
