 Page Through from Before to After

I'm back from a week by the beach in Central Florida--yes, of course we went to Disney, and the Kennedy Space Center, along with logging more than 100 miles of biking along A1A. Here are some small items while I regain my blogging legs:
* The October instance of the Truckeroo food truck festival, appropriately dubbed "Truckerboo," is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 28, from 11 am to midnight at Half and M Streets, SE. In addition to the usual lineup of trucks and the drinks flowing at the Das Bullpen bar, there will be "truck trick-or-treating" for kids from 3 to 5 pm, along with costume contests (kids, individuals, and groups). They're requesting a "one buckaroo" donation this time around, with all proceeds benefitting the King Greenleaf Recreation Center in Southwest. More info here.
* The bridge between Diamond Teague Park and the Yards Park is close to finished, as you can see in this not-totally-fabulous cellphone pic. When it opens, visitors will be able to walk along the west bank of the Anacostia from 1st Street SE (at Nationals Park) all the way to 11th Street SE (as long as the Navy Yard's stretch of boardwalk is open).
* Awnings for Lot 38 Espresso have now gone up at the old Little Red Building site across from Canal Park (reader photo here), along with a "Coming Soon" sign. The owner, Yung Park, told me this afternoon that he's shooting for a Dec. 1 opening date.
* The Nationals have announced that they will be playing a home exhibition game against the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday, April 3, 2012. The team's regular season gets underway on April 5 at Wrigley Field, with the home opener scheduled for April 12, against the Cincinnati Reds. No game times have been announced yet.

Welcome back from Melbourne Beach, where I grew up! Loved the shout out in twitter!

I've spent a lot of time at Amelia Island/Fernandina, and of course four years in Gainesville, but really haven't ever done much of the Space Coast other than some brief visits to Daytona and KSC. We liked Melbourne Beach--we were on the south end, just past Floridana and about six miles north of Sebastian Inlet. Reminded me of Fernandina some in terms of being on a smaller more intimate scale, compared to, say, Cocoa Beach.

When we rode our bikes southward, we went past the Disney Vero Beach resort on A1A, and were overwhelmed with the scent of vanilla, which they must be pumping across their grounds. Wacky....

"of course four years in Gainesville"

I didn't know you were a fellow University of Florida alumnus! The Gator Nation is everywhere! Amelia Island is beautiful but a tad remote; we go to St. Augustine/Vilano Beach a couple times a year, which is also a great location for me to slip back over to Gainesvegas for a game or two.

Yep, me and my brother and my dad and two of my uncles are all Gators. (Dad's family moved from Detroit to Ocala when he was a teenager.)

I love the fact that Fernandina is so remote--I don't really go for the big Beachy Beach experience. (Then again, I don't really much care for the beach and sun anyway, which makes it all the more humorous that I went south for school.)

War Eagle, Gators.
