Jan Collects Weird Things . . .

With our last day here in the Gulf Shores area, we didn’t really have any thing special planned. Just sat around, talked, read, computed, and napped.

It just doesn’t get much better.

About 1:30 Jan and I drove over to the Fish River to have lunch at Big Daddy’s Grill. We were last here in November 2012 with friend’s Lu and Larry Tillotson, and new friend’s Paul and Margery Zeller.

It was highly recommended by our friend Nick Russell, and he was right on target, then and now.

I started out with a cup of their Seafood Gumbo.

This is old style gumbo, made with okra and tomatoes, as well as the shrimp and crab. A great roux, and really good.

For our meal we both got the Shrimp and Oyster Platter, mine with Blacken Shrimp and Jan’s with Grilled Shrimp.

And both with Cole Slaw and Sweet Potato Fries.

For dessert we split a piece of their fantastic home-made Key Lime Pie.

Again, all really, really good. We shouldn’t have waited 6 years to go back.

The view from the deck where we ate was really nice too.

Like I said, the view was nice.

And besides being a nice view, she collects weird things.

This is just a smart part of her collection of flamingos, pelicans, jelly fish, and moose.

She probably has some more weird things she collects, but the one weird thing that I’m most happy about her collecting is me.

After we got home I went out and disconnected water and sewer, and let in the awnings, pretty much everything I can do tonight for tomorrow’s trip to Quincy FL just west of Tallahassee, and about 204 miles away.

Then tomorrow all I’ll have to do is to stow the satellite dome, disconnect shore power, and hitch up the truck.
