Today was mostly a down day as we laid around and kinda recouped from the Oktoberfest from last night. We really didn’t get THAT torn down while we were there, but the heat kinda took it’s toll on my Bride. I made us a nice breakfast and we sat and watched our newest series “Goliath“. It stars Billy Bob Thorton and even though he is a loud mouth punk a$$ actor – I enjoy most of what he does. We are just about through the first season already and have been enjoying it – so “I reckon we’ll finish the rest MmHMmmm” (reference Sling blade) The time finally rolled around for the Fish Fry at the Fred that I had kind of been waiting on… so we spiffied up a little bit and headed West. We ran through a pretty good little rain shower on the way – but it did not dampen our spirits as we were both looking forward to some fried fish~!
Our first time at The Fred (the islands newest hotel) – they advertise and kind of cater to the younger more opened minded folks…. very nicely remodeled, a nice pool and right on what is left of the beach. Most of the sand has been sucked out to the Sea leaving a rocky shore – but still have those calm blue waters and sunsets that is every photographer or artists dream……. We had a couple of very well made drinks before ordering our dinner. Because my Queen wanted fish – I opted for the shrimp figuring we could share and taste both. We both got hush puppies with garlic butter as a side. [I thought] the fish left a lot to be desired…. but that is coming from somebody raised on Louisiana style fried fish… so really not a fair comparison. I thought the shrimp was tasty and well done – and the hush puppies were presentable…… so giving it 3 stars. I really can’t condemn the cook…. they gave him some pretty puny equipment to work with……..
We finished our meal and another drink while watching the crown around the pool and the bar -AND a spectacular sunset. I took way to many pictures of it – but you just can’t help yourself….. I’ll put the bulk of them up and you figure out which one YOU like~~ A new week tomorrow and no idea what it is gonna bring. I know I have t try and get DD back and then get DD 2.0 into the shop — I have a bogus charge on my debit card from a local place….. so I may have to go down and confront them (friends say they have bogus charges from this place as well)…and some where in that mix – I hope to squeeze in at least another couple of dives…… so we’ll see what happens~!
