13 Jul 2015 – From LHHS Days

Thu: such a small world, Jan and Jackie have grandchildren attending the same pre-school! Great to catch up with Janice, Cee, Jackie and Judy, ladies from our days volunteering in the schools. Much to catch up…


Cooper’s Hawk Winery and Restaurant***combines an upscale casual restaurant, a working winery, and tasting room with specialty food and gift items. Good burger – wine OK.


Heading towards Ormond Beach after a short visit at Alonzo and Marlene. Drove by familiar streets and neighbourhoods. Carmel By the Lake looks the same. Pix taken from the car are not the best shots…


Thank you to Jan & Al for dinner at High Tides@Snack Jack***on Flagler Beach – tasty crab-cakes.


Miles and miles of beach with the endless Atlantic Ocean.


Fri: grocery shopping at Publix and cooked for the afternoon in this cozy beach house.



Picture perfect at Ormond By The Sea by the A1A.



Sat: tkx Vanessa & Benny for meeting up and for lunch at Lagerheads Bar & Grill***Good fresh ‘Peel & Eat Shrimp’. Pleasure to meet you both and appreciate the drive and the chat.


A walk with Jan to the inter coastal waters for the sunset.


Sun: tkx Jan for the drive around the loop.



Back to Winter Pk to catch the train at the new Amtrak Station. Brian, the station master is from UK and the only Amtrak and bus station which I have understood a full announcement!



The garden and park is still as beautiful and seems like the peacock is the new mascot there!


Winter Park was my favourite area when I lived in FL and a stroll thru’ Park Ave convinced me that it is still my favourite area here in central FL. Glad to see that both The Park Plaza***** a hotel with charm and personality and Timothy’s Gallery are still around, Both L&M worked on Park Avenue hosting and serving in this no longer existing restaurant, La Venezia. Also there was a Gap that May had part-time job there. Today many new eateries and shops.


In fond memories of Ann Gerken as I pass the Morse Museum. She has taught and shown me much of what I know about Southern Living & Hospitality. Thank you for crossing my path as a neighbour and a good friend. May she RIP.
