Phil, There is a free boat tour by the Port Authority of Tampa each day just off I-4. About a 47-50 ft. boat. Reservations are required the day before and the boat leaves at 9am. Kids to adults learn a lot from the trip. Anyone wanting the phone # for reservations post and I'll get the #
Next to the Port of Authority boat is a huge Liberty Ship from WWII. Small donation gets you a self guided tour of the ship which is VERY educational and interesteing Twice a year the ship goes out on its on power to the gulf and back. Volunteers dressed as WWII soliders complete with jeeps man the deck..all for $99 a trip each person. Note....carry you water when you get on the ship....you'll need it.
Next to the Liberty ship is the Aquarium.
Hooters one block away. Plenty to see and do in the area.
And finally, yes we are available for a lunch or dinner.

We were there yesterday. I won a nice junk of money at the Hard Rock Casino and had a wonderful crab lunch at the Buffet. This was all without spending a dime of our money. They had sent us free funny money and dinner tickets.

Hope you can get together with Hugh and Pat. Great people. Sorry we didn't get a chance to meet while we were all in Ocala last week.

Hugh, Pick out a place and we will meet you there. (Seafood sounds good). I'm not familiar with the area so will need a street address for our GPS.

John, Perhaps you could meet us also??

Helen, we were only in Ocala for one day to get suspension checked at Tampa Spring then drove to Peace River that afternoon arriving in Peace River around 7pm.....Whew!!!!!
If there is anyone else in the Tampa area, Let's get together......

Phil how does Bahama Breeze sound. BahamaBreeze.com for menus and map. It's at 3045 N. Rocky Point Dr. E. Tampa, Fl phone 813 289-7922. It's right on the water and you can be seated inside or out. How does noon sound? Let us know if you would like another place.
Anyone else interested in Carribbean music during lunch?
