We did a WHOLE lot of nothing this morning….. the wind was up a little more than usual and clouds rolling through kept the temperature at a balmy 73°……. awee, I know, right ? 😉 We were scheduled to meet new friends Cynthia & Shawn (and Daughter “Lexi”) at a new place called Blue Water Terrace for a Christmas Eve dinner. It was an all you can eat seafood (plus Prime Rib) holiday special. Kind of a long drive out there, but we were excited about it none the less. The opportunity for good food and spend an evening with good friends. We arrived promptly at scheduled time and ‘held down the fort’ while Cynthia & Shawn were running a little bit behind after an exasperating day at work.
While we waited, we were blessed with a couple of really great pictures of our babies and their babies at a Christmas Eve gathering at one of their houses. It just does this old heart good to see them all get together as a family like we did when ‘Mom & Dad’ were still at home. It is a tradition I hope they continue for many, many, many years to come. It is one of the few things in my life that I was always proud of, was to make sure everybody got together for the big holidays – particularly Christmas. While there were some years, I mumbled and grumbled and ‘cursed the day’ – in the end I was always (sometimes secretly) delighted for the event. Even through all the noise, chatter and headaches — worth.every.single.second~! Once again, slid off topic~~~
Cynthia, Shawn and Lexi showed up shortly after us and we were soon, drinking, chatting, eating and all just having a good time. The view from Blue Water Terrace is a close up of Buck Island, plus you have that water, palm trees and all the other views that make this a beautiful island. The company just magnified the whole evening. There was more Lobster, Clam Chowder, Crab legs, steak, baked taters and other stuff than you could shake a stick at. Topped it off with some cheesecake and other sweetness. MmMm good~! We finally wrapped a really great evening up and headed for our respective abodes. There is already conversation about getting together tomorrow night for a meal, as we all are away from the bulk of our families this year.
I’m a little bit light on words, but it’s Christmas Eve and you should be spending time with loved ones – not on hear listening to me ramble on…. I’ll put up pix I don’t think have made it yet…… enjoy the rest of your evening and I truly hope each and every one of you have a very Merry Christmas~!
Good night Ya’ll —– Thankx for stopping in~!
