I was picked up from my home, and driven down to the Voyager, Treasure Island beach. Here we met Donna’s husband, and the 4 of us walked the boardwalk. I will post photos of the sand sculptures later.
By the time we got back we were all really hungry, so drove the 5 miles north to the Seabreeze Island Grill & Raw Bar on Redington Shores. The sky was blue, and the sun was out. We decided to sit outside even though the temperature was in the 60’s. We had a 25-minute wait, not because they were full, but lack of staff. This is happening in every restaurant I have been to recently.
We were seated in the shade, and were shivering even though we had jackets. When our server brought out our ‘happy hour’ drinks, a table became available partly in the sun. We asked if we could move, and she told us to. The drinks were really good.
We ordered 3 appetizers, and an entree each. The appetizers were really good. They warmed us up, and so did the drinks. When our entrees came out, the white fish filled with crabmeat had a different sauce with it, and there were green beans, not small red potatoes. I don’t like moaning about my favorite restaurant there, but the sauce was really hot in flavor. Before it was delicate so you got the full taste of the fish, and the delicious crabmeat. I am hoping they will revert back to the wonderful proven dish. This came with homemade bread, and cocoanut butter.
We then all had cheesecake with either raspberry, chocolate, or caramel drizzle. I get both raspberry and chocolate, and Donna chocolate, and caramel.
We were all so full after this meal. Donna drove us back to the Voyager, to drop her husband off, and then us ladies had a 2-hour drive back home. As our meal was mid-afternoon, that will do us for the rest of the day.
Thanksgiving came early to our little gathering. We all said ‘How thankful we were to be sharing this time together’. A lovely new memory.
