Leon’s House of Omelets 7246 55th Ave E Bradenton, FL 34203

First time here on a recent afternoon, it’s in a strip mall tucked in just south of State Road 70 and west of I-75 so can’t see from road.

Sit anywhere you like I was told, so sat by wall near the overhead TV. Few people there as near three o’clock closing time. Good lunch salads and sandwiches menu, so picked the turkey BLT plus coleslaw and lemonade.

Excellent server refilled my lemonade glass, and when done brought the bill within a folder. Paid with credit card and she brought back receipt to table for me to sign.

They have counter seating as you enter, then several tables in the middle and booths along the walls. Décor was understated darker colors with an upscale flair, inviting. Will be back.

Planet Fitness – 2210 SE Federal Hwy Stuart, FL 34994

First time here recently, it’s in a strip mall right off US 1 so easy to find. Plenty of parking even if shared by several businesses.

Greeted by friendly staff in this clean facility. Overhead TV screens set far back from treadmills, otherwise fine with bright glass view. Plenty of workout equipment and weights. Not many people on a weekday afternoon, maybe weekends are different.

Only three showers in men’s locker room, but they are spacious. All lockers are the small one-over-another type, also have small holes so you can see clothing in them.

This Planet Fitness is near the waterfront beach and hotels, so convenient for travelers

Freedom Library at 5870 SW 95th Street Ocala Florida

First time today at this South Ocala library in the middle of rolling horse country. It’s a bit difficult to find and there is no commerce out here whatsoever. If you need anything you have to drive a few miles north to State Road 200.

It’s a small library compared to the main one on Silver Springs Boulevard, but it’s a neat place to relax and look at the beautiful scenery through their glass wall. There’s only two tables where you can plug in your laptop, but four others if you are on battery power.
