His expression is understandable considering this trip, scenic though it may be, involves a visit to the doctor's office. I LOVE this commute! ............. a water taxi across to the mainland where we pay homage to "The Beast", our sturdy and trusted 1994 Ford Bronco. Rust is her only real predator. We drive long enough to enjoy a few tunes then catch a ferry over to the island. Dolphins frolic in the harbour and if you are lucky, you might catch a glimpse of the Manatee and her baby who frequent the area. An hourly golf cart rental is completely unnecessary but we do it each time without fail and within 3 minutes we are there and within 10 minutes the official part is all over. No trip is complete however without a stop in at our preferred restaurant where we have standard favourites, which happen to be things that we wouldn't dream of ordering, let alone eating, anywhere else! Sometimes we'll jump off the bridge, feed the goats, go to the beach, get a milkshake at the drive through window and then within a few hours we have made the trip in reverse back home - sure beats highways, traffic and multi level parking structures. Here's to your health!
