Up a smidge earlier than I would have liked, but I was going diving so it didn’t really matter. I got up, got my morning stuff done and set into recharging all of my batteries that have sat quietly for that past couple of weeks…. [pitiful I’m tellin’ ya – pitiful~!] Batteries charged, camera put together and settings changed for deep water pictures….. I loaded my gear, kissed my bride goom-bye and I was off. The boat was leaving from the pier today, so I had a 4 minute drive instead of the usual 25 minute drive. The dive shop has another group of Instructors in, visiting us and logging a whole wad of dives with the dive shop. These Instructors, I found out are from Indiana. Well I had to squirm my way onto at least one of those loads…… which I did, this morning. Turns out they are from somewhere up near Chicago…… no – I did not pay enough attention to remember from exactly where. Several of them professed of knowing where Evansville is is, but that was about the extent of it. Not a bad bunch of folks to dive with – a damn site better than the last bunch of ‘professionals‘ that I dove with. On two sites this morning that are fun – but not known for holding ”fun” sea life….. like sharks and eels. So I got a lot of topography shots and practiced a little bit on my mostly unwilling subjects from Indiana.
Back at the humble abode, I got me and my gear rinsed and settle in to edit pictures. The subject of Dinner came up and in short order we both agreed we needed to go out to eat. Pictures finished [but not posted] we scurried off to the little place we went a couple of days ago. We settled in with a drink and a view to die for and the threat of yet again more rain. The clouds dispersed and we were left with that gorgeous sea sunset to take in. We had a young man as a server, whom I suspect was fairly new at his job – but we made the best of it, laughing with him, one of the owners that drifted by to see what the merriment was all about and the one other couple at another table. I had more Bang Bang Shrimp that my Bride made me share with her because she didn’t want to order an appetizer…. $%^&*… but I love her and [begrudgingly] shared my Shrimp….@#$%$#…… I guess subconsciously, I didn’t think I had enough shrimp – so I ordered the fried shrimp platter for my entree….. woo-boy… got enough shrimp now~! AND – it was pretty tasty~! I wouldn’t write home to Mom about it – but pretty decent. My Queen got her a magnum steak…. it was cooked exactly as ordered and was a smidge too rare for her – so she ate around the edges until she was full and the rest came home with us for what is sure to be a righteous steak and egg breakfast. We finished the meal with a Cappuccino Fudge covered Brownie with a scoop of Vanilla ice cream and it was smack your Momma good~! Just to be sure we had the appropriate amount of dessert – we each had a [fairly decent] Chocolate Martini as well. Obscenely full, we gathered our stuff and made the [thankfully short] 5 minute drive back to the house. Bloated and full…… I’m ready for some serious sleep. My Bride is working at Blues tomorrow and I’m gonna spend the better part of the day mowing grass while she is gone….. clean my schedule up, so hopefully more diving on Thursday~!
Good Night Ya’ll / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / Thankx for stopping in~!
