6 Things That Make Dunedin Delightful

Our downtown merchants, chamber and city government advertise our small town as "Delightful Dunedin". We may have been unburying ourselves from all our boxes for the last 9 days but we agree. A few charms we're enjoying right away include:

Church bells ringing at 9 am on Sundays. We may not be joining the Presbyterians for service on Sunday (the Unity in Palm Harbor is likely going to be our church home) but their carillon reminds us of God's grace and our gratitude.

Sunsets over Caladesi Island viewed from Dunedin harbor. The harbor is an easy walk from our bungalow. We got to take in our first evening walk and sunset with our friend, Daniella, who was visiting from San Antonio.
The Serendipity Cafe. Located on Main Street just as you enter the historic district. Here we found Kim Mohr manning Dunedin's gluten-free, whole food cafe. We visited so many times in a week we were afraid she would think we were stalkers.

Dunedin Harvest and Co-0p. In Dunedin, buying local is possible. Farm fresh eggs, raw local honey and live plants will make up our order this Wed.

Dunedin Community Center.
I received a resident's pass and am now able to enjoy fitness classes for $5 ea or unlimited for $30 a month. As one would expect, the center offers a host of activities for children and services for low income families.

Walking to downtown for ice cream. The kind of ice cream you ate before Ben met Jerry and HFCS was manufactured. We figure the walk to the shoppe, then eating the cone as we make our way up to the harbor, down Edgewater Dr and back home burns exactly the same amount of calories contained in a one scoop cone.
