A last bit of Vacation.

Well - we showed up @ the Ritz at about 1700 after my mom showed up to watch the kids - My loverly wife explained in the course of conversation that this was our little getaway after I got back from Iraq.  - They comped our valet parking and upgraded us to an ocean-side suite. Sweet.

We can back down to go out to dinner and it was time for the Ritz "Rum Toast" with the pirates - so we donned our pirate hats and downed our "Peppermint Patties" (2oz Rum, 2oz Creme de Coco[dark], 2oz Peppermint Schnapps) - yummy! Jumped into the Fusion and sped off to downtown Fernandina. En Route a fool in a late model V6 Mustang did they whole re-the-engine thing @ the stop lights on the way - so I decided to play his silly game - and demonstrated that the black on black sports sedan might not be the one to pick on

We arrived @ the Crab Shack for dinner I had Shrimp and Ma-hi (Dolphin) and the Shaza had Scallops. It was GRAND - yummy yummy. We then made our way down to the Palace Saloon for cocktails and the live band - "QUEST" from Jax - I had "Mount Gay" Rum (not "Mount Ghey") and Shaza had a variety. We ran into 3 Scots who are working on a project across the river and chatted until about 11. Back to the hotel for adult activities and enjoying our seaside balcony and the cold moonlight - BTW - the hotel left chocolate and gold dipped strawberries and a nice note for us - yummy

I woke up with a ridiculous hangover - musta been the Mount Gay - did not burn clean. Had room service breakkie and feeling poor went back to bed until about 1030 - off the the boy's basketball game @ the Y and then to Taco Bell and the drugstore for gatorade (both to kill the lingering hangover). Feeling all betterz we headed back to the hotel for more adult activities, and watched the new episode of BSG on demand in the room - DAMN  - crazy start to the last season of BSG !!!

We then wen for a sunset walk on the beach (although the sun was setting on the mangroves as opposed to the water like on the left coast. More adult activities -and room service dinner (BTW room service @ the Ritz was not great - it was good but NOT worth the outrageous sums charged)  

Slept like logs - more adult activities and then off to breakfast @ Barbara Jean's (excellent!) and back downtown to shop for furniture for the Shaza's office. Found some awesome stuff at some of the antique shops downtown and then drove around the island looking for all the cool nooks and crannies for later. Eventually we made it down to Freakville to pick up the kiddos from Mom's house (Thanks Mom and K!) and then back home in time to watch the playoffs! Yay!


This morning - back to the Honey-dos - last day before work

I just wanted to say "Howdy", Comrad.  I could't even get out of bed yesterday.  I just layed there in the fetal position crying like a baby.  Vacation sounds like it went well for you.  Vegas was good for me, expensive but good.  I thought you had fallen into a rum induced coma and that was the reason you had not blogged for a few.  It's good to hear from you.

p.s. I have several job applications out there so you may expect a call from one of them.
