Solomon's Island

 Last night we went to Solomon's Island for a little tour and then we went out to dinner with Rob and Lana.  The area is just beautiful as I am finding all of the area here is.  I just love the scenery and all of the homes, even the old ones.  They are lovely.

 This is not where we ate.  We actually went in and had a soda and looked at the menu, but we didn't find what we wanted so we left.

We actually went to a second place that was waaaaaay too expensive and besides that, it was to hot in there.  When we were leaving the girl in front said that she didn't blame us at all, "because something wasn't working right and it was just too blasted hot in there."  The third place was finally a charm and we had a delicious dinner.  I ate crab stuffed flounder which was so good.  

In the morning we went to an Amish outdoor market.  It was fun and the food and baked goods all looked great.  It was, however, very expensive.  We did buy a few things; watermelon, cantaloupe, tomatoes, corn and a pumpkin bread.  

In the afternoon there was swimming, a game of phase 10, and just enjoying each other's company.  

Before the dinner, R and L needed to go to a viewing of a good friend who died suddenly while bicycling.  He was not old, in great physical condition, and a great guy.  All of his family and friends are very sad.  Papa and I waited in the car and listened to Elder Bednar's talk which was just excellent.

We are having a great time.  I am missing little Tal.  I guess I've become very attached to her.

So glad you are having a great time.

Always so nice to go out and eat--of course, I love to eat ; ) And I love crab--never had flounder.

Keep enjoying your visit.
