nice to look at - soft drink station behind there!


Chic & Marilyn celebrate the anniversary of their partnership on Valentine's Day and I wanted to take them out to dinner and do something nice for and with them since then. Now that the season is over and we aren't so busy, we went to Gasparilla on Boca Grande to see the water and have dinner.

It was a beautiful day for a drive. When we got to the end of the island, we stopped near the lighthouse (square building that is now a concession stand!) and looked out at the water. Across from us is Caya Costa and while looking there, we saw dolphins swimming by. There was a swarm of boats and it seems they were fishing and making lots of waves when bringing them in because of the waves we saw once in a while between various boats.

I had thought we were going to go back into the town and eat at a restaurant there, but when we passed by the South Beach Bar & Grille, we just had to stop. What a great place to sit and enjoy watching the water, feeling the breeze, having a cocktail, and enjoying a meal! we had an appetizer of lobster queso and chips which was very good. I had a grouper basket; Marilyn had a seafood medley (forgot the name of it), and Chic had a salmon dish.

What a great afternoon!
