Gentle Readers and Dear Friends your warm sweet welcoming comments are just great and I do thank you all so very much!!
Our Christmas Trip Home was really super, we didn't do anything spectacular, but just sort of enjoyed each others company. I got in Friday and over the weekend helped with the decorating of my Mom's house. At 85 she ain't as spry as she once was!! My sister and niece came in on Monday evening so I drove over to Orlando to pick them up - and Interstate 4 between Daytona and Orlando is a complete free for all - even going 75 or 80 miles and hour - I was being passed up like I was putting along at 20! It was a super gorgeous day and I had my Mom's convertible - so I was jut tooling along with the top down enjoying the drive. As dusk settled in it was less glamorous and a bit chilly - so when I arrived at the airport I pulled the top back up.
John and my nephew got in on Wednesday - also into Orlando - but rented a car so he drove himself over to Daytona. We did a lot of running around and went down to pick up some lunch - we headed over to Caribbean Jacks - which is right on the Halifax River with docks for landing boats. I got some snaps....
This is the front - a little non plain...
sitting next to a sweet niece I had a great view!!
Some of the great boats moored up along side of the restaurant
|more great boats..|
and I ordered some delicious fried gator tail - love the stuff!!! It came with a delicious spicy Creole mayonnaise dipping sauce..
John had some crazy Caribbean burger and rings
another super boat!!
It was a really lovely lunch. The tables where all covered and the double seats acted like gliders so you could eat, glide and catch the wonderful balmy breezes off the water -
There you go for today sports fans -
check back tomorrow for more of the continuing Christmas Trip.
