Sumter Landing with Harry and Karen

Our friends, Harry and Karen are still here, but only for a few more days.  Today we made plans to meet up with them down at Sumter Landing.  Close enough for both of to take the golf carts and to  meet there early enough to get a parking spot close to the square. 

We were only about 2 minutes from the square when Karen called to say they found a good parking we circled the square until they flagged us down.  Perfect!  Above - Rich and Harry on the way to Cody's Roadhouse....

Cody's is situated on the banks of Lake Sumter and you can eat inside or outside with a view of the lake.  Outside is always nice - but it was just a little to warm to enjoy...........

Loved the casual atmosphere, with gas pump handles for door knobs, and peanut shucks all over the floor.

Karen, Harry, Rich and I - about to enjoy our meal.  Two for one drinks so we ordered a Bud Light on draft..... Everyone opted for something different tonight, but everything was very good.  Rich had the Blackened Mahi Mahi, me the Chicken, Karen the Salmon and Harry the Steak!.. 

And this is Chris, our friendly, smiling, very accomodating waiter...  This was a great choice Karen.  Thank You.

After dinner we sat and talked for a while and then walked back over to the square where the music had startee and people were already out dancing.   The line dancing here is great, but with my bad knee I have not been able to catch up on a lot of the regular dances.... These guys dance at a pretty advanced level. But I managed to get out two or three times.  The lady in the blue dress in front of me is actually one of the instructors, the guy on the right is George and behind him is Marie.  I don't usually see people I know in the square, but these two are pickleball players who generally play at Churchill with me, but have been playing recently at Pimlico and recognized Rich before they did me.

And Harry and Karen and Rich just sat and enjoyed the music, while I was out dancing.   But they look like they are enjoying the nice evening.  It actually started to sprinkle and we thought it was going to rain..... but it was just a few sprinkles and it moved on.

I had to get this picture.  Just behind where we were parked we spotted this red Corvette.  And these two little ones enjoying the music in the back seat!
