The boys went on a Boy Scout campout this past weekend, so Dean and I had our first weekend alone in a long time. We spent a significant portion of it at the Florabama Yacht Club and the actual Florabama. We ate there for lunch on Saturday, and I was delighted to find that they had toys outside in the sand for little kids to play with...like this Barbie, who was buried up to her neck - cute!
Then I stumbled on the Barbie massacre - this is only a portion of the poor Barbies scattered over the beach, many missing their cute outfits. (Have you seen what some bloggers are doing with Barbie clothes lately?!) This left me disturbed and I had to stop taking pictures.
This is "scotched mac eggs," and I have no idea what that name means. They're boiled eggs wrapped in pork sausage and fried, then served with horseradish sauce. Tasty, but a little dry. (Note to self: don't take family to Florabama Yacht Club for dinner - it's okay for lunch, though.)
We headed across the street to listen to a band play after lunch. You may have to enlarge the picture, but do you see the things hanging from the ceiling under the beer banners? They're bras, stretched across the ceiling, and they were in several of the bars. Alrighty!
Sunday, we took Jakey over to a dog-friendly restaurant for his first lunch out with the public. This was the only time he stayed under the table, but he didn't bite anybody, and he only barked once when surrounded by 4 really old people. Apparently, old people make him nervous.
And here's where I am on the dress. The slowness of the tiny bitty needle has been offset by Bianca's revelation that she can continuously backstitch with beads, instead of the stab and stitch method I was using. Using a shorter needle has some advantages, so I'm almost finished with this panel...
Now only 3 more to go!
