To send Wendyl & Tiffany off in style, the six of us (Dick & Pat, too) went out to an early dinner at Lambert's. Wendyl & Tiffany had not yet been to Lambert's and it is a must when you are down here. You get plenty of food and a little entertainment, too. I know I wrote about Lambert's last year. It is the home of the “throwed rolls.” When you want a roll, it is thrown to you by one of the staff. Other staff members are walking around with their “pass arounds” which consist of fried okra, tomatoes & macaroni, fried potatoes, black eyed peas and more. This is on top of very generous portions of good home-cooking. Needless to say we all brought home doggy bags.
After dinner, we met back at Dick & Pat's to watch a movie. They have a good-sized TV set up in one of their outside storage area. Yeah, this camping gig is tough! :) All too soon the movie was over and it was time to say good-bye. After lots of hugs and promises to keep in touch, it was time to call it a night. It's great to make new friends and hard to say good-bye to them.
Before I end this post, I need to share a couple of pictures with you from our exploration yesterday. We had gone out on a milkshake run and decided take a drive down to the Bon Secour River area. We had not been down there before and I wanted to see where the road would take us. We found ourselves down where all the local fisherman sell their catch. Gosh, that's got to be a hard life. And those boats! Man, they are tough looking. We found some sad sights, too; a couple of boats that had seen better days. We wondered if they had been swamped or wrecked in pasts storms. You can't look at these pictures without feeling sorrow for those who had sought their livelihood on them. At least, I can't. I wonder what their stories are.
Well, that's it for our weekend. It has ended much better than it started. I am feeling almost 100%. Thank God for antibiotics and cold/flu medicine! And it's a good thing 'cause I've got a busy week planned and was not happy about being sick. I am really looking forward to the dulcimer festival in Louisiana this coming weekend. Pat & I leave Thursday and will be back Sunday. I'm sure I'll have lots to share with you.
Hope you have a great week. Be sure to smile at someone tomorrow; it'll make them a little happier, too. Until the next time . . .
