A fun dinner tonight

     Country Guy checks the weather in Illinois everyday.  It is raining and the temperature is near freezing tonight as I write this, so I guess it's pretty miserable there.  Hearing that certainly doesn't make me eager to leave paradise.  :o)
     We took another long walk on the beach this morning.   After about 3 1/2 miles we stopped for breakfast at The Blue Dolpin and then walked another mile or so back to our condo.
     This afternoon we walked in the ocean for awhile.  The water felt really cold at first-- I saw somewhere the water temperature is in the low 60's, but after we walked in it a few minutes it began to feel much warmer and very refreshing since the temperature has been in the low 80's today.
       Don & Beth, friends from Aqueduct, live on AnnaMaria Island, which is connected to Longboat Key.  We met them tonight for dinner at The Beach House restaurant.  Because it was so warm today we ate outside and watched the sun set.  We had lots to catch up on since we hadn't seen them for several years.  Not only was the company great and the food good, but The Beach House had excellent live entertainment.
      It was another very fun and relaxing day!

Brenda, We were so happy you took a chance on our number, We have been in the beach phone book for 13+ years now....we love this island life. It was great to catch up on life with you and Kent. Thanks so much for calling and for the lovely cookbook...have picked out some recipes to try. We enjoyed our time with our granddaughters and are now waiting for two more to visit. If you and Kent are in Florida lets get together again. Blessings to you.
