Our lucky 7

Jordan and I celebrated our 7th anniversary in a unique way. Tripp of the Puerto Amistad Marina held a "crawfish bake" that we attended. We have never tasted crawfish before and I must say it was quite delicious. They are also called crayfish or crawdads and resemble lobsters to which they are related.

With everyone seated at tables lined with paper tablecloths, the food came on! It was served on a big tray set in the middle of the table filled with boiled crawfish, potatoes, onions, and corn. There was no silverware or plates. Finger-food only. Oh yeah, free beer and wine too! Everyone had a great time and left with full bellies and a smile on their face.

Looks like a small lobster to me!

When the party broke up, Jordan and I were invited to a "party after the party" at a friend's condo (Dave & Miriam) With Jordan's fiddle, Eduardo's guitar, and Tripp's canned music, there was lots of entertainment, dancing, and fun! (Click on the collage of photos to make larger.)

This turned out to be a very special day that we will remember for a long time to come!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!! So glad to read that you celebrated in fine style - good food, friends and music - a memorable occasion for certian.

The blog is looking fabulous- not sure where you find the time to introduce new techniques and update your slide shows - very impressive.

All is well here - take care and definitely keep up those watches during the daylight hours - what a close call!
