It was my pleasure to join some co-workers and a guest for dinner this evening at the Boathouse. I arrived just before 5:00 P.M. and it was already a 45 minute wait to be seated outside. Thankfully, I had no desire to be seated outside in the 94 degree heat. There was no wait to dine inside even though it was quite crowded as well. That was just fine. We could still see the water from our table and it was air conditioned. Life is good.
I walked around the premises and took photos while I waited for the others to arrive. Although I have lived here for almost a year I still feel like a tourist at times. It fascinates me to stand by the ocean, to admire the marshland, to watch the birds, and to look for all the other creatures connected to this type of environment. It is unlike anywhere else that I have ever lived.
We did not stop at "The Beer Garden." The photo was taken so you could see the beautiful setting. (That's my story and I am sticking to it.)
Latitude and longitude were no longer enough on the sign. See the social media symbol in the lower left hand corner. Ugh. It's everywhere.
Although it was warm, I still enjoyed taking in the sights.
It was my first time to see a manatee. It is upside down and his head is under the dock, but at least I was able to get a close-up look for a while.
It finally turned over and watched us for a while. The beauty of God's magnificent creation never ceases to amaze me.
