The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill Authentic All the Way!!!

American Press Travel News–January 9th, Port St Lucie, FL-Barb and Bob “On the Road Again”- This time at The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill. For decades, Barb and I have dined at Greek Restaurants all over the USA and the world, particularly in the Mediterranean side of the world. What we found in our own backyard in St Lucie, County now obviates the need to dine on Greek food anywhere else. The foods and feeling of being at home were a huge joy! Lets face it; we all eat, and need to eat, but really enjoying what we sup on also has another huge component. Get into your Greek, The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill is located at 10513 SW Meeting St. shop 101 Port St Lucie, /fl. www.thegreatgreek.com  They offer authentic recipes and Legendary ancient recipes, too!

APressTravelNews-Feb 25th,-Bob and “Barb On The Road Again” & “Stopping to Smell the Roses” in Port Charlotte, at the Wyvern Hotel. Barb and I love great dishes, great ice cream, great views, friendly, hospitable folks and the feeling that your always on vacation. No kidding, Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda are such places. We came into town to work on our assigned article from New Pioneer Magazine. The article is about the Worden Farms Agri-Business and 3-Suns Bison Ranch, as the side-bar. While in Punta Gorda we visited with our friends Janis and her husband and Jack Montague. We tried to get some daylight between our short time we had in the area, so we could also visit the great Van Hubbard. Just couldn’t do it!  We were scheduled to visit the solar powered new town of  Babcock Ranch. We did and were mightily impressed. A gorgeous planned community that will have everything any fine town or village has, but with one giant unique feature: Totally sun-powered electricity! Not open to public yet, there is a school, lake-front restaurant, homes lakes, boardwalks, bike paths, sports store, gift shop, ice cream shop, etc. Grand opening will be next November we were told. There will be a show and tell on the ranch March 12th.

Oh, love that hot fudge on Pistachio Ice Cream with a cherry on top!
The Worden’s! PH.D’s in Agriculture, they are helping provide healthy, delicious veggies and herbs, sunflowers and a whole lot more in Punta Gorda.
Great Bison meat available at 3-Suns!

 The best ice cream we ever had was just across the parking lot from the Wyvern. Walk around the waterfront marina and enjoy at this great mom and pop ice cream shop, the Harbor Walk Scoops& Bites!
