Seeing Friends & A Crazy Dinner, Siesta Key, Florida

One of the things we really enjoy about the RVing lifestyle is meeting people along the way and reconnecting later on the road. 

A few days ago, we got together with JC and Bev – we met JC & Bev last summer in South Dakota through a mutual friend, Howard of, who recommended us to restring one of the RV shades. We saw them again in Austin, Texas, then Abbeville, Louisiana, and finally here in Sarasota. They brought with them their good friends, Carol & John, who have been following our blog as well. 

As we chatted away, we learned that we all have mutual RV friends……… went something like this: 
• Carol & John know Sharon & Mark from working together at Sheridan Lake, SD a couple summers ago. 
• Sharon & Mark know Ken & Sarah from working at Sheridan Lake last summer. 
• Sharon & Mark needed a blind restrung, so Ken & Sarah put them in touch with us. 
• We met Sharon & Mark (who, incidentally, worked at Sun-n-Fun a few years ago as well) and restrung their blind which resulted in us having dinner at their rig that same night. 
• We know JC & Bev who know Carol & John who know Sharon & Mark who know Ken & Sarah who know us who know JC & Bev (and now Carol & John). Full circle. 

Crazy, isn’t it! Speaking of crazy, dinner. 

Originally we planned to go to The Lobster Pot, recommended to JC & Bev by Susan & Carl (who, get this, we know from the Montana Circle in Quartzsite last year), but they were closed, thus we went across the street to The Hub Baja Grill at Siesta Key. Good thing we enjoyed one another’s company and still had lots to talk about, since we were there two hours due to incredibly slow service and a comedy of errors by our (we suspect stoned or drunk) waiter who couldn’t get the orders correct, couldn’t bill correctly, couldn’t charge the correct credit cards correctly, you get the picture. Additional tip for all waiters: smoke your dope after work, not before.
Easy and affordable - no matter where you are!

Full circle indeed! We had a great time and lots of laughs. Thanks for the tour of Sun-N-Fun. It's an amazing place.
