A Visit to Tarpon Springs and the Sponge Docks

Niki and I traveled a short way up Florida’s Sun Coast this afternoon to have lunch with three charming ladies from the Hoosier State.

Former RVing neighbors and friends who were just in the area for a few days. We met for a really nice lunch at one of the better reviewed Greek restaurants on the famed Sponge Docks in Tarpon Springs – Dimitri’s “On the Water” Restaurant.

We were blessed with a beautiful warm and sunny day, the boats – large and small – were moving up and down the waterway. We had a fun and relaxed two hours getting reacquainted over good food, service and great scenery.

After lunch we all walked the couple of blocks down to the Greek and European Bakery for dessert. The selection of decadent desserts in their display cases are straight out of a chocoholic’s dream. I had to try the baklava tiramisu – now that is a combination to write home about!

Tarpon Springs is a fun place to visit if you find yourself in the Tampa Bay area. Settled largely by Greeks and a thriving source for the sponge industry for many years, they are proud of their history and food and happy to share both with visitors from all over the World.
