Sunshine Cindy and I have had a fun few days. It started with a Parrot Head meeting on Friday night in Niceville at Dockside Oyster Bar. Dockside sits right on the water in Boggy Bayou. It had rained earlier but by the time we got there it was clear with a nice breeze blowing through. There was a good crowd for the party. Radioactive played some good music. Jane was also having her retirement party at the same time and she went back and forth between both groups. It was a good way to start the weekend.
Saturday was our Crab Island Mambo and ECPHC beach cleanup. It was a small group that showed up but we actually had some stuff to pick up. That is one of the problems with all the tourist in town. Some don’t know how to clean up after themselves. In the afternoon some dark clouds, thunder and lightning were off in the distance so we packed it in and headed home. The rain never made it to the beach but just inland they got hammered pretty hard.
After we got home and cleaned up, Sunshine Cindy decided to stay home but I headed off to Landshark Pizza. With us being out of town, it’s been a while since I was there and I needed to get my pizza fix. I got there between the lunch and dinner rush so I had a chance to talk to Brian and Austin. We gave Brian a Phlocking of the Phaithful tee shirt in appreciation for some swag he gave us. He liked it and said he was going to wear it the next day. Austin was prepping for a big night. They have been setting records almost every night. Good for them! I also got to talk to “B” too. He came in and sat next to me. He owns his own paper products company and has been real busy too. B works hard and earns everything he gets!
It looks like Landshark Pizza will be moving to a bigger place on the harbor in a few months. This will be a big move for them but I know they will do fine. I applaud Brian and Sue for building up this business and making it a big success in a competitive tourist town.
Sunday we waited for Tiffany to come back home. She is coming back for a few months to work at Harry T’s to make some money as things are slow in Atlanta this time of the year. She got home and we all then headed to LuLu’s. We met Sunshine Cindy’s parents there. The placed was once again packed. They have had a great start and will do well. They have decent priced drinks…like $2 PBR’s! Good food and just a fun atmosphere. We enjoyed our time there even with tons of kids running around everywhere. LOL
Last week I stopped in at Crust Pizza on the harbor. Charlie has been extremely busy there too. He has great pizza and wings too. His new satellite location in front of AJ’s also is doing very well late night. And Charlie is working on opening a new location in Mary Ester. No rest for that man!!!
Traffic patterns last week were crazy. One night Commons drive was all backed up, the next it was empty then the next night it was a parking lot again. Yep, it’s that time of the year.
We hope to get down to the harbor this week as it has been a while for us. With the Fourth of July weekend the town will be crazy busy. Come to town but be patient in the traffic. Have a safe and happy 4th!!! See ya next Monday!
