See any sharks?
We just finished a lengthy discussion of The Raw Shark Texts. After over an hour, we still can’t come to any conclusions on the plot. It was an interesting book for sure. I loved all parts about it – except the plot! I am a stickler for plot, so that was an unfortunate thing not to love ; )
This afternoon we went out to see the ocean – it’s about time!
I also am now the family photographer!! More headshots were requested – including the inn’s owner, Rod!
After a chilly golf cart ride, it was time to roast by the fire
Cocktail hour is received very well with the warmth and cozy flames
We had a figgy brie, sliced Creminelli salami and crackers
As well as some Hint Of Lime chips with leftover dippers
Matt served one his first homebrews – the Maple Nut Squirrale, a rich, sweet, high alcohol brown ale
I had a taste – yum! And then switched to a little bit of red wine
Dinner tonight has been in the making for weeks – Linguini in a Red Clam Sauce as inspired by this recipe I made a while back.
Served with a side salad with bell peppers, walnuts, cranberries, blue cheese and a homemade balsamic and herby Great Harvest Warrenton bread!
During book club we all dug into the bottomless tin of Christmas cookies! Pumpkin cups, GH chocolate babka, gingerbread squares.
I also meant to post this photo after lunch – a Christmas M&M handful eaten E.T. style!
We depart early tomorrow morning. I had hoped to get in a run, but I’m thinking sleeping in sounds more fun at the moment!
See you for sunrise…
