On our shopping day in Florida, Joanne came across this picture in one of the stores.  She didn't buy it at first - she had to tell us about it and we made her go back and look at it again.  Needless to say it was an easy sell.

It is us

I have actual photos of us like this on the beach but this picture says it best of all.  It is why we go to Florida.  We all enjoy the beach so much and our time together spent at the beach is so blissful.  So relaxing watching the waves and the people and the birds and the boats and people floating in the air behind powerboats held aloft by a big parachute.  Our toes in the sand or the water.  Our matching drink cups filled to the brim before we came down because it is a long walk back for a refill.  All in our different colour bathing suits sitting on colourful hand me down beach chairs left by last weeks guests at the hotel.

 We will have to work on our hats for next year, ladies.  I think straw would be nice to have.

Susan said she was the one on the left checking her phone and Joanne was on the right in her new blue bathing suit.  I guess that leaves me in the middle - right where I belong - surrounded by my Sisters whom I love very much.  I can't wait 'til next year

Well it is all over for this year - our annual Scott Sisters' St Pete Beach vacation.  Two weeks of beautiful weather, delicious food and thirst quenching drinks.  The beautiful sunsets every nite we viewed with our cocktails in our new drink cups courtesy of Charlie and Monty who sent us some money to buy them from the resort.  They are Tervis thermal cups which kept our drinks very very cold.  Thank you Charlie and Monty!!
Mornings were spent walking - or trollying - to breakfast then back to the Bon Aire for our sun bathing which we did all afternoon.  It was glorious.
Mitch came with us this year and he worked out very well and is welcome back anytime.  Altho he didn't get us too many drinks or carry all our purchases for us.  But he did drive us shopping one day.
We scooped some beach chairs early on and made good use of them down by the water where it was much cooler with the breezes and it afforded us the best place to people watch.  We also got some tubes that Susan and Joanne played with in the water.
The last picture is of our feet showing our pedicures - Susan has the blue toes and Joanne has the pink toes - I am the coral colour with the ankle bracelet on - which goes on the first day and comes off the last day.  Just a tradition I like to stick with.
Reservations are all made for next year same time and same place but a different section of the resort for our room.

I think the Scott Sisters got their love of motorcycles from our Father.  When we were in St Pete Beach we took in the First Annual St Pete Beach Bike Fest held at the Tradewinds resort.  I have never seen so many bikes - the majority of them Harley Davidson's with a few other models scattered here and there.  There were thousands - they put plastic down on the tennis courts and parked some bikes there.  There were a ton them ready for the auction held on Friday and Saturday.  There was a tent set up for the "custom" bikes.  The bike in the last picture had a 34" front wheel and the owner drove it on the highway from New Port Richie.  They had tents set up for t-shirts and patches and all sorts of leather gear.  Helmets and bike parts were everywhere.  And the noise!!!!  It was amazing.  I love the sound of a Harley.  You can feel it in your bones.  St Pete Beach has one main street - Gulf Blvd - and I could have set up my beach chair out on the sidewalk and watched all the bikes go by.  An amazing sight to see.  And Hear!!!

We shopped from 9am until 8:30 including 45 minutes for dinner at Dockside Dave’s for a delicious Grouper dinner. Mitch was our driver and he lasted the whole day shopping with the Scott Sisters. Our trunk was full. We know all the good places to go on Tuesdays -all the stores that have senior discounts and Tuesday discounts plus all our coupons. We made out like bandits!!
We made up for our missed day on the beach today. Sue and I had yougurt for breakfast so we could be out on the beach early while Joanne and Mitch returned the car. It was a glorious day and we finished the day by sitting in our beach chairs down by the water then enjoyed the sunset after our showers with cocktails in hand. Our dinner tonite was at Hurricane’s. The girls split some Grouper tacos and Mitch had a Grouper fish and chip dinner. We could see the trolley stop from the restaurant so we knew when to leave. I had to run back and get Sue’s Levi jacket she forgot in the restaurant. We finished the night with Fireball shots down by the beach and now we are all tucked in and getting much needed rest for tomorrow’s festivities -the Biker Rally - there are already a bunch of bikers riding up and down Gulf Avenue. Love the sound of the Harley’s But there are a ton of the 3 wheelers all done up with lights and flags and beautiful people riding - most without helmets which is funny to see.
By the way I did see some faux leather jackets shopping yesterday that were very reasonable but Joanne and Sue didn’t want to get them. Party Poopers!!!

No pictures yet but those will be when I get home. Having an amazing time with my Sisters and Mitch who is fitting in just fine. Tomorrow is our shopping day. We have mapped out our route and expect to be on the road in our rental car by 9am.
This Thursday there is a Bike Fest down at the Trade Winds Resort with free beach concerts featuring Vince Neil who sang for Montley Crüe. The. Festival is all weekend long so it should be great entertainment seeing all the bikes and the bikers!!  There is wet t-shirt contests and bikini contests and a great display of all the Harley’s and Indians and Triumps etc.
I think I will look for something leather tomorrow to wear...

Pictures next week
