Caddy's - I'm not leaving the beach!  ____


Regrettably, no alcohol or food can be brought onto this beach,

but it sure can be purchased there!

We’ve chosen this site in part because of its shallow beach, calm waters, and indoor escape from the August sun......along with the fact that they can't wait for us to arrive!!


Less than 10 minutes away from the beach by bus, Florida Orange Groves Winery is Florida’s original tropical fruit winery. Today they produce over 43 different varieties of premium tropical fruit wines, all of which are gluten free! If you are looking for a wine that tastes like the fruit it’s made from then look no further. They are offering a free 30-minute tour, followed by a 30 minute tasting.  To see their award winning wines.... Key Lime, Hurricane White Sangria, and Mango Mamma... visit their website at

Their TripAdvisor rating is 4.5/5 and a recent visitor posted this review:

"What a fun experience! As a self proclaimed food and wine snob who has traveled the world on luxury wine excursions, I didn’t have high hopes. However, I was pleasantly surprised and found it to be more enjoyable that some Napa vineyards. Staff is friendly and wines are fun. Bought several bottles to use in cocktails and for cooking. Great adult outing option."

 (We all qualify as 'adults'......right?)

Oh, yeah, then there’s the beach .....

You may choose to have both lunch (because you can't bring your lunch and eat it on this beach)  and dinner at Caddy's  (  After all, they share their beach chairs and beach with us.  But if not, our buses will escort you a 1/2 mile to other restaurants in the area. 

They are:

Sea Hag Bar & Grill; rated 4.5 out of 5;  while they are unable to handle a crowd, they would love to see a few of us.

Shrimpy's Blues Bistro (cajun seafood);  rated 4/5;
Their happy hour/early bird runs from 3-5pm.

Taco Bus  -;  rated 3.9/5;  a converted school bus!  Fun, fun and tacos.

Sea Dog Brewing (on the water);;  rated 4.5/5;  these folks will be ready to accommodate any of us that venture to their establishment  

Carino's Northern Italian Cuisine -  rated 4.5/5; they'll be ready to accommodate any who come in;  early bird from 3-5pm

Of course, the easiest thing to do is lounge on the beach, saunter up to Caddy's and order.  The choice is entirely yours!

Just be sure to board your bus before we leave for home at 6:00pm. 
You'll be ready to sleep all the way home!
