Beautiful Day in Paradise. Well... I was a little cool (53 deg) and a
little windy (10 - 20 mph) but a nice sunny day. Bicyclers (back row left) Rob
H, Rick P & Ginnie S, Joe W, Diana & Bill S, Jeff B, John L, (front row left)
Dee T and Bruce M came. Welcome all. The plan today was to check out the new
Bayshore Blvd Trail progress so we skipped the Old Coachman Trail and headed
directly over to Bayshore Blvd. Well...it looked like the new Bayshore Blvd
Trail was basically finished but not cleaned up yet. Hmmmm, what shall we do???
Of course, ignore the "Trail Closed" sign, and head South on the Bayshore Blvd
Trail and see how how far we could go. We made it all the way to the Courtney
Campbell Causeway Trail. We turned around and headed North to Safety Harbor to
check out where we might now park in Safety Harbor. Going West on Main Street to
2nd Ave N, there was a big dirt parking lot on the NW corner and if you headed
South one block there was a big asphalt parking lot on the SE corner. Both had
plenty of parking. While we were on Main St, we decided we might as well check
out the Athens Restaurant.
We decided to Brunch at the Athens Restaurant. We
got in and it looked pretty crowded, but as we stood there a 6 person and a 4
person table opened up and we sat down for Brunch. The 4 person table got
instant service. The 6 person table got waited on eventually and finally the
coffee flowed freely and they got served. The 4 person table loved their brunch
and service and gave Athens a rating of 10. The 6 person table liked their
brunch but only gave Athens a 9.5 rating. We'll give them a 9.75.
