Curlew Rd & Alt 19 on the Trail

As Bruce would have said if he hadn’t been diving in Rainbow Springs, “another beautiful day in paradise.” Weather was a little touch and go in the north part of the Pinellas Trail but appeared to be clearing. Everyone met at Publix at Curlew Road and the roads were dry with the sun peeping through. Tom and Kim joined us as well as some absentee skaters…Willie and Suzanne (happy to see them both after their absence). Bill Burns, another accomplished skater, joined us. Bill hasn’t skated with the Sunday Bladers for a few years…welcome back Bill!

Most of the group started out by skating out to Honeymoon Island and back, then headed north on the Pinellas Trail. We skated about a total of 8 miles as the north part of the trail was still pretty wet. A few did not skate the causeway to Honeymoon Island, but opted to skate the trail only. We brunched at Benedict’s with some skaters showing up later. Service from our waitress was a little slow at first with Sherrie assisting by pouring everyone another round of coffee. However, we found our waitress to have a great sense of humor in spite of the way we kidded and generally hasseled her!
Rob rated his brunch a 9.

Thanks to Sandra P. and Glenn R. for the write up and photos in Bruce's absence !!.
