Everyone has high expectations when planning a vacation. Right?
I know I do! I expect to get away from it all, rest and relax. I plan to go somewhere and do something that is far removed from my day-to-day routine. I think about the big picture! The Destination! The Activities! However, I like to leave the small details to chance. I love surprises!
We have stumbled upon a few unexpected treasures while vacationing. Once we discovered an incredible restaurant completely by chance without so much as a recommendation. Rails! Actually that happened twice. Once it was an incredible magic shop in a small Texas town. But nothing compares to the unexpected treasure we found while vacationing in Florida.
While vacationing on Gasparilla Island in Boca Grande, Florida I discovered a gem, a treasure, a diamond in the rough! This little gem is none other than a local grocery store. All I can say is “I want one”! I want one in my neighborhood! I would go into the grocery business in a heartbeat if I could duplicate Hudson’s Grocery.
