Sweet Tomatoes.

Our Location today is Largo, Florida.

What a difference the new mattress and pillows made last night. Other than waking the odd time we slept the whole night and woke this morning feeling refreshed and minus a lot of aches and pains.
Another thing we woke to this morning was rain and lots of it. Were we ever glad that I had tied the old mattress on the back of the truck last night so we could dispose of it today. After a light breakfast and a quick look at the computers Kathy called the store to find out where we could legally dispose of our old one. Twenty minutes later we were on the way to the Pinellis Waste Management which was less than ten miles away and it only cost us $1.13 to dispose of our mattress.
We headed back to the Largo mall since we really didn’t have time to look at too much of it the other day. Upon arriving there the first thing we did was find a place to have lunch and since we like to try different places we went to a place called Sweet Tomatoes. This was an all you can eat Salad and Soup Bar. They had twenty different salads and eight homemade soups and all the garnishings. It was all good and amazing how filled up you can get on soup and salad. We also qualified for the seniors discount making it very affordable as well.
The rain had stopped while we were eating lunch so now we were going to walk it off because Kathy was struggling to find replacement sandals since we arrived in Florida because hers were starting to split at the seams. I dropped her off at the Rack Room and went to park the truck. Looking around I knew if she didn’t have any luck there she was within a short walking distance of four other shoe stores.
She had already found a pair close to what she wanted so with a bit of my help we were actually able to find two pairs of different shoes that she liked. The best part was you bought the first pair at full price and the second pair was half off.
Yes that is a chocolate sundae that you make yourself.
We looked around a few other stores in the mall before heading down the road to Walmart. We looked around and were surprised at how small this store seemed to be and merchandise was limited and packed in the aisles making it hard to move around. It looked like the store was under expansion.
More soup and coffee for supper to warm up.
Now we headed back to the trailer but instead of sitting outside like yesterday we stayed inside because the sky remained cloud covered with plenty of cold wind blowing to dry any standing water. Tomorrow is looking like another exploration day. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
