Kim and Mitch arrived Friday night around ten and we chatted for a bit before heading to bed. Early the next morning, we hit the road running. E had fixed his breakfast casserole with sausage, cheese, hash brown potatoes all baked in a dish and served with a side of salsa.
Our first stop was Kristen's to see the little boys. They have yet another cold and were not real happy campers. I think, because they stayed home for their first year with limited contact with other children, they are going to have to build up some resistance to colds etc. now that they are at day care school two days a week.
We headed to Dunedin and shopped and shopped and shopped. E had stayed at home to work on our evening meal (Spanish chicken with chorizo and potatoes and the 1905 ensalada from the Columbia restaurant cook book)but met us for lunch at Bon Appetite on the Gulf at the end of Main St. It rained most of the morning but cleared so we had a wonderful view of dolphins and sail boats.
Kim and I tried on some enchanting H'ween accessories including the spider ring. What fun. After lunch, we headed out to Miss Vickie's on the Anclote River and were joined by our friend, Bob. There was a wonderful breeze, plenty of sunshine and a great bluezy musician to wile away the afternoon. Then it was home for a swim and dinner.
More pictures to follow tomorrow!
Taking a moment to reflect on today: It hardly seems ten years have passed since that horrible day in American history and the attacks. Hoping we all take a few moments and reflect on how life changed for all of us that day but particularly keeping the families in mind of those who lost their lives.
