I spent the afternoon at Pier Park. It is the best mixed use shopping, dining, entertainment place I have ever been. It starts with a pier that goes out over the ocean and then continues with an excellent mix of small upscale tourist shops, local and national dining/snack options with lots of outdoor seating and continues to a 16 screen theatre and a small amusement park and then on to larger stores such as Target, Dillards, JCPenney, etc and more restaurants.
As I was driving back to the park, I was amused by one of the mini golf courses along the way…pictures below….
I saw more deer today…
About 5pm I went back to Gator Lake trying to see an alligator…no luck so I went to the pier to take sunset photos…..it was colder today than yesterday…..I took a few shots and left before the sun went down….
Then I went into town for a pizza……at a place called Hungry Howie’s….how could I pass up a place with that name……the pizza was pretty good….
