Winter Sunset in North Carolina

Twilight's Last Gleaming
In twilight's last gleaming
The sky slides away
Leaving me here at
The edge of the day
Songs in the sand

Hand on the door
I've been here so often before
In twilight's last gleaming
So smoky and gold

Endless horizons
Glister and glow
I see you in strangers

In light on the sea
In twilight's last gleaming we'll meet
In twilight's last gleaming

At this time of year
Wherever you go to
Whoever you're near

Think of these times
Remember these dreams
And twilight's last gleaming and me

Mazzaro's Italian Market

On a recent trip to St Petersburg I visited Mazarro's Italian Market -
a  true Italian experience in all things Italian; wine, deli foods,
coffee bar, pastries and a restaurant.
This Italian "samfia man" cart was parked by the entrance.

Downtown Saint Petersburg

Downtown Saint Petersburg, Florida has experienced a rebirth with the
construction of condos, sidewalk dining, museums and a vitality that is
missing from other older cities that have left the city center for the burbs.
Very refreshing to see this in Florida.

Bier Garden

Located on Haywood Street in Asheville, the Bier Garden
has an extensive beer selection and good food. Their
sidewalk signage isn't too bad either.
