Our last day in Florida happened to be Father’s Day, so Ryan and Heather invited us, well, really me, but Anneke could come along, to lunch to celebrate the holiday. We headed to Sandestin, Florida to a resort community which has an area modeled after a fishing village with shops and dining. It is called the Baytown Warf.
After admiring the yachts that we could not afford, we strolled the town and took in the sights and smells. It seems that the original inhabitants were quite large as the porch chair was a bit big for the girls. We enjoyed a good lunch and good company. Somehow, there is nothing more enjoyable than having your meal purchased by your children. I hope to enjoy this pleasure more in the future.
We headed out Monday morning for Decatur, Alabama for a planned stop to visit Anneke’s aunt and uncle. They are very nice people and we enjoy their company. Anneke says we should think of them as the Dutch B&B in Alabama. Again, we arrived with tales of drought and no rain for many weeks. Yep-today it rained off and on all day. I really am beginning to think we may have some kind of business opportunity here.
