Today after work, I headed to the beach by the lighthouse. It was a great shell day with so many beautiful unbroken shells. It was a difficult decision so I just kept the ones that closely matched my color scheme.🏝
We have a favorite breakfast place called Coffee and Friends. A family from Switzerland traveled the United States searching for the best place to open a coffee shop. When they went to Englewood, they said it just spoke to them. The building they are in was a breakfast place and was for sale because owner was retiring. They then decided to do coffee AND breakfast to keep the breakfast going for the many regulars already going there. The son had worked for a major coffee company in Switzerland and it was his dream realized to have a coffee shop. His dad cooks the breakfast.
The first time my d.h tried the biscuits and gravy, he was with my brother in law, Jesse. They got up early and decided to go eat breakfast while the two bride’s slept in. When he tried the biscuits and gravy he told Jesse,” I hope Janet doesn’t ask if they are better than hers.” When they told us where they went and what they ordered, I immediately asked if they were better than mine. He couldn’t lie to me. The truth hurts, but I appreciate the honesty. When I ate there the next time I had to try it. I had to admit he was right. I used to brag about making the best biscuits and gravy but I don’t anymore. Coffee and Friends put me in my place and dropped the mic.🏝
Ephesus Mediterranean Restaurant offers a unique attraction for date night. It was a lot of fun! One man having a birthday was targeted by the belly dancer to cause him to blush from embarrassment in front of his wife and friends. The belly dancing really was amazing. I don’t think I have ever seen it done correctly before.
I am training first in the Inn Shop today. The Inn shop is in the front part of the inn, right off the lobby. It carries more of the logo souvenir products. The logo for the Gasparilla Inn is a pirate. There’s also suntan lotions, sun bonnets, cold drinks, daily newspapers from major cities,etc.
The inn trains employees to give old Florida hospitality to the guests. I love the old Florida feel and decor. It’s like stepping back in time.🏝
