It's been said that I'm spoiled

But my Pawpaw used to always say that I wasn't spoiled, if I was he could have smelled me.  Instead, I was overly loved. 

But sometimes you just have to live up to what people call you and buy a bumper sticker to match.

After Thursday night and my all day Friday hangover, we decided to go over to the Boardwalk and have a nice dinner.  The Tilapia Bianca was delicious and I'm considering having my leftovers for breakfast this morning.  And I am happy to report that the only drinks being consumed were Cokes with fresh lime.  I think the rest of the marina was feeling my hangover too because the docks were still and silent last night by 11:30. 

Walking the Boardwalk is always fun.  There's a colonial style inn at the center, restaurants galore, rides, games, and live music constantly.  They even have a place where water shoots up from the ground at timed intervals and you can watch or play around and get wet.  We got to see a bird catch his dinner.  It was a ribbon fish and I had never seen one before.  It looked like a small eel and I was told they have 2 very nasty teeth up front.  It was quite a show and several people gathered around to take pictures.  We watched a second bird try and catch the same fish but alas his efforts were thwarted by the twisty fish.  These scary looking fish can grow up to 50 ft in length!!!  I can see how in the pictures of sea serpents on old maps appear to be based off of these guys.  But no mythical creatures for us, the ones we saw were only about a foot long.  But before we headed back to the boat I did take a picture with a shark! 

Heehee, or kinda something like that.


  1. Ah, the boardwalk. Wonderful place. I've had a green inflatable alien hanging around my house for a couple of years that I won at one of those games and my partner still won't let me throw away.

  2. Those games are so hard to win! I think I'd make it a permanent fixture in the house :)
