Somebody fed me half a beer while we played a game of bocci ball
I’m not that good at bocci…
…but I’m not bad either! Kanz and I won!
While we played, mom and dad got deserted on an island
The tide was a’comin’ in strong!
Every night at the beach has a theme. Last night was fiesta, tonight we’re going to a restaurant called Havana’s. So we had a slight Cuban theme.
Cheese n Crackers appetizer
OH, and mid afternoon we snacked on a few of Sweet N Salty By Design’s amazing pretzels!!!!!!!!!!!! I had a bite of the Resee’s – still good frozen and months later!
Cocktail hour appeared on time – ‘round 6PM after our showers. I mixed myself a tonic + lime and worked on the puzzle.
Did you know Dad and I are Puzzologists?
This is one of the hardest we’ve ever done!
Because beer is an art in this household…
Kanz prepared a barley wine tasting for us
4 different years of Sierra Nevada and one of his own:
I LOVEEEEEEEEE barley wine. It’s like a rich, malty, flavorful beer. So much better than the “yellow” ones
Because we’re also a family of jocks, we decided to walk to dinner tonight
About a mile to downtown Carolina Beach where there’s a county fair feel in the air
Dinner tonight was at Havana’s. I love Craftsman Bungalows!
Nice patio dining with live music
Our family loves to share – a way to get 100% of the flavor for less money and calories. Mom and I shared a glass of red, and Kanz and Larbs shared a glass of white.
There is only one kind of bread I don’t eat from the bread basket, and that’s a dry, cold french slice. Tonight’s rolls were doughy, and while they may have been par-baked, I still thought they were excellent.
For dinner I got a big salad topped with blackened mahi mahi, minus the eggs and cheese (which I don’t care for on salads). The fish was excellent!
Of course I shared my fish and had bites from around the table, but I ate most of it.
Lucky us, Thursdays are fireworks nights! We witnessed a great show.
My only request of beach week was one night out for ice cream. I love going out for dessert in the summer
Per usual, we did some sharing.
I got Resee’s and shared with Matt and Larbs
Who got a fudge sundae and shared with me!
Plus fudge for the group!
Fudge at the beach is the best!
We took the beach for the walk home. It was so nice out!
My feet hurt from sand!!
