Last Week at the Beach

Dom and I headed to the condo on Friday for 4 nights of fun.  We stayed busy, busy, busy. The water was crystal clear, but ice-cold.

Went to Dee's Hangout on Friday night.... just the 2 of us.  Dee and Brenda continue to blow us away with their food.  Dom had a fried shrimp po-boy.  To give you an idea of the size and value....  he finished the 2nd half of it last night.... he counted THIRTY THREE shrimp.... leftovers!  I had a kick-arse 1/2 pound cheeseburger.  Their food is out of this world.

On Saturday, we met dear friends, Donn and Linda at Coyote Ugly for happy hour.  Had a couple of beers, then walked next door to Dee's for dinner.  It kills me that I forgot my camera!

 We had a couple dozen Jalapeno Baked Oysters, hush puppies, a Fried Shrimp Po-Boy and a  Smoked Sausage Po-Boy.  Topped it off with a couple of orders of their decadent Bread Pudding.

We had a lovely time with wonderful friends.

Sunday, we headed over to Beach Bar and Package for some football action.  We were delighted that local boy Eli Manning and his NY Giants will be playing in the Super Bowl.  Would have preferred the Saints, but beggars can't be chosers.  (I'm just glad that it's not stupid Green Bay!)

Travis entertained me with their new "DISCO LIGHT"....  Welcome to the 80's!!!!  He also taught me all there is to know about ADVECTION FOG

We had never seen so much fog before.  There were times that we couldn't even see the beach from our balcony.  Advection Fog is created when warm air (it was in the 70's) meets cold water....  How's that for Trivial Knowledge?  :)

We wound down on Monday with a late lunch/early dinner at The Pasta Grill  Great place!  Dominic had been in search of a good place for Italian Food.  Steve at Beach Package suggested that joint.  Good stuff!  We enjoyed tasty Veal Parmesean and Chicken Marsala.  Both served with piping hot linguine.  Real sweet waitress, too.... oh yeah.... dollar pints of draft beer!  We shall return.

Anyway, back to "normal" here at home.....  Hope this posting finds everyone healthy, happy and enjoying the New Year!
