Estero Cousins and Ball Game

One of the things we like to do in FL each year is meet up with Dave’s cousins who stay in Estero each winter.  Estero is about a 30 min. drive south from where we are so we often meet in the middle to catch up and share Florida tall tales.

This year was no different.  We met Cheryl and Larry at Lakes Park one Friday morning and went to the green market they have there.  We love picking up some fresh vegetables, fruit and an artisan bread.  Then we go for a walk around the park and stop for a picnic lunch.

A new activity this year was to go to a baseball spring training game.  The Boston Red Sox play at Jet Blue Park and the Minnesota Twins at Hammond Field.  John Jarrell kindly gave us some tickets to a Minnesota – Pittsburgh Pirates game.  The seats were excellent and we really enjoyed the afternoon.  Pittsburgh won 2-0 in a closely fought game.  On our activity list to do again next year with the Jarrells.
