Trip, I'd welcome the ride and look forward to meeting you. I'm willing to be your excuse to go shopping
I'm not a recreational shopper myself but the DW would be glad to join you.
Again it looked
like we could just cross A1A at the Walgreen's and continue down Eisenhower to 20th Street. I now know that is not the case.
True story, I once arrived at a hotel after dark. The next day called a cab to take me to my client's. the cab pulled out of the parking lot, the long way, crossed the the street and pulled into my client's parking lot. Boy did I feel sheepish. At least it was a long parking lot!
