Tarpon Springs, Florida (May 16, 09)
After spending several hours at Cypress Gardens, we took a drive to Tampa Bay, St. Petersburg and then north up the Gulf of Mexico to Tarpon Springs, Florida. The little town is a Greek community with many traditional restaurants and shops. We had a Greek dinner at "Hellas" that was delicious! Our waiter was absolutely delightful. He told us where to catch the best view of the sunset within close walking distance from the restaurant.
It's only about a 2 hour drive from Orlando. We had rain with lots of thunder and lightning, of course, on our return that night.
