Trella Hemmerly – 1980-01-27

Sunday January 27th
Breakfast with Carl in the Esther and Carl packed two papayas for me. Left about 9 and drove to the beach south of them. There was fog over the gulf but the waves were washing the shell banks & the fossil shark’s teeth were easy to find. Left Venice about 10:15. Stopped in Bradenton trailer park on business 41 to visit Chester and Isabelle Scott at her mother Mrs. Rodger’s trailer. Isabelle so tickled to see us and made us stay for lunch. Then walked us all over the very clean trailer park. Fog very bad when we arrived but sun out when we left about 2:30 so it was beautiful when we crossed the Sunshine Skyway. Drove out past condos to Fort Desoto- wonderful recreation area- beaches and we climbed up the fort which was built in 1898. At St Petersburg beach was amazed at the big pink Don Cesar Hotel which was slated to be demolished when I was here 10 years ago. Arrived at Vivian’s at 4:50 and so good to see her and David. Dinner and talk.
