Sorry for the silence around here. We scooted down to the Outer Banks for a long weekend.
I was asked for a photo of sandals in the sand, but the weather was just about perfect on Sunday, for early spring. The feet and legs belong to one really sweet young lady who was down there with my brother inlaw and his family.
Sadly, Sunday was the only day we set foot on the beach. Saturday was perhaps the coldest, windiest day I’ve spent at OBX. Monday, it rained harder than I’ve seen it rain before, so hard we couldn’t even see the ocean. (No, I’m not kidding.) Yesterday started out with rain, but the sun came out to dry everything out before we headed home.
Not all was lost though. My spindle and I spent some time together (another post for another day), I knitted and knitted, I read, and we did have a fine meal with said brother inlaw and his gals.
Saturday night, we went to Basnight’s Lone Cedar Cafe. BIL and I shared a bottle of Biltmore Estate Century White Wine. I would rate it sweeter than the link shows, but it was truly an outstanding bottle of wine. I also had the local oysters lightly fried, the sweetest sweet potato ever (brown sugar maple butter did the trick), tasty beets and cornbread. However, the key lime pie very well could have been the best I ever ate.
We also had a great dinner Sunday night at La Fogata, a local Mexican place. It seems to get mixed reviews, but we enjoy authentic Mexican and are rather demanding when it comes to good service, and we thought the food was good and the service, outstanding.
I have more photos that I’ll share over the next few posts, but I really have to thank my brother inlaw and his gals for walking the fur-girls on Sunday so that I was free to take photos. (Gretchen is in front the trio of humans in the distance… trust me.)
So, what have you been up to?
