Boot camp…book club…board games!
My foot was feeling a little sore after all of our sports and Larbs is still feeling under the weather, so mother produced some IB profin for her daughters
We set out for an adventure to the one and only event on the island this weekend – an artist meet and greet and wine tasting at an art gallery
However we arrived to find the place empty and locked 🙁
We took the scenic way home along the beach
We were gearing up for the Bald Head Book Club all afternoon
Matt Allen was the chairman and did lots of preparation with passages and questions and all.
Karen prepared a delicious appetizer for some Road food. A black bean, sour cream, and raspberry salsa dip with melty cheese [RECIPE HERE]
8 hungry people around the pie dish went fast! I had about 5 or so chips dipped in
Book club began promptly at 5:30 with an intro by the chairman and we spent over an hour discussing the deep scenes and themes from The Road. I thought the book was amazing – very interesting and thought provoking. It was a great discussion and we’re already talking about a second book club!
Still fighting her cold
I ended up not drinking anything during the cocktail hour book club (to keep my mind clear!) and soon enough we were off to dinner at Ebb & Flow’s Steam Bar, one of 2-3 open restaurants on the island.
Didn’t feel like a beer, but I sipped off of Kanz’s 1554.
Ebb & Flow’s OKRA is awesome!! I had three of these guys…
And ordered a bowl of gumbo for the first part of dinner. It wasn’t fabulous, but I still finished it off.
Kanz and I shared the steamer pot (and by shared I mean he had most and I had some of each)
I gave back most of my corn, potato and kielbasa and stuck to the seafood cause I was getting full.
Once we walked back home we met in the living room for some Christmas tree and a group game of Trivial Pursuit
I enjoyed a few Christmas cookies as I’ve been blogging and must get back to the game!
