In which I continue my chrome postcard journey on the Gulf Coast of Florida.
Say Ethel, remember this place? You were wearing your flowered muu muu and we met that cute young thing, what was her name? After a few zombie drinks it's a wonder I remember anything.
From the back; "Visitors revel in the beautiful and romantic atmosphere of TIKI GARDENS - "Oro", two-faced Wind God in the foreground, Tahiti Hut in background, this exotic attraction is located on Indian Rocks Beach, between Clearwater and St. Petersburg, Florida."
Sadly this exotic place is no more. It was torn down in 1990, initially for a hotel but the land was later purchased by the county for a landscaped parking lot and beach access. Sigh. Another piece of roadside America is gone forever.
remember Sunday Stamps! This week, anything you wish.
