around the island---
Phil's mother Sue arrived yesterday - right on time - from St Louis... we took her home to River Cottage to relax a bit before going out for a fabulous meal at the Sign of the Mermaid- where we had excellent fish and outstanding (award winning) pies for dessert.
then today we headed back to the island to eat lunch outside at the Waterfront where Phil has shrimp and oysters and I had carnitas and Sue had a burger (since we will have seafood again tonight on Longboat)
and just Tuesday night we had a wonderful dinner at AMOB (anna maria oyster bar) the nutty grouper for me and the stuffed lobster for Phil---
other than these things we have been giving Sue the VJS tour of Anna Maria with a full blown history of my family on the island starting in the mid 1920s...LOL (whether she wanted it or not...)
tomorrow we head south to meet up with Phil's brother Larry and spend some time in the sun in Miami.
oh and regarding the family history of the being on Anna Maria- I do promise a blog entry some time this year during our stay at River Cottage... along with some photos if I can find them...
