A boat trip kind of day...

Yesterday we got up very early, which by the way is not normally something I would do on a Saturday morning, to go on a 3 hour boat trip with some friends. I don't actually know any of them well, so I was a bit apprehensive about the whole idea and had actually hoped it would rain again so I wouldn't have to go. Terrible, I know. Well, of course yesterday was a gorgeous day. So, we went. I have to admit I had a really good time....we went the intercoastal waterway to San Destin and docked at Bay Town Harbor (and I'm not even sure that's the name of the place). After a really nice walk, we got to the little "town" section, where we looked around then ate lunch at Jim & Nick's BBQ. If you've never been there it is worth a trip. We first went in Birmingham. Anyhow, then we went by shuttle to the Grand Blvd. We walked around looking at stores and of course I went in Coldwater Creek and found a few little things I went home with. 70% off sale! We then took the shuttle back and had another 3 hour trip home. On the way home, we had a nice selection of snacks we all brought and wine and cheese.

We got off the boat and literally drove to Russell's parent's home to meet and go to supper with no wonder I'm putting on a few lbs.!! Russell's sister is here for a couple of days and we went to the Captain's Table another fabulous little seafood restaurant. We decided we better share ours since we had basically been eating all day. Russell's dad seemed to be looking pretty well and I took a couple of pictures. When I looked at them, I could see that he's not looking all that good....we are praying he will be able to make the trip to NC at Thanksgiving.

Anyway, it was a long day and when we got home I was just ready to collapse. But it was a good tired.
