Friday Fives and Hunt

How you all doing? It's Friday and that's a great day for all you workers 'cause you get the next two days off. But, me?  Every day is just about the same around this household. Sometimes I even forget what day it is...

But, today is Friday and time for Willy Nilly FridayFive on FridayFun Friday Favorites and Friday's Hunt

1. I am so happy it is strawberry time. I have been eating 'tons' of them in all sorts of dishes. Yumm.
This is R for red ripe strawberries to link with Friday's Hunt.

2. I take a lot of pictures... you know how it is.... some turn out and then others quickly become favorites. This is one of my favorites.  it's the bell tower at Brookwood Gardens. 

3. Although pollen makes me sick every spring, I love the textures of the sharp pine needles against the soft, spiny blossoms nestled therein. 

4. I saw a hummingbird zoom by my balcony just the other day!!
this picture was taken from last year.. and yes, I will be getting more pictures when those little stinkers settle down to stay.

5. If you had a million dollars I wonder what you would do with it? Just wondering. Not that it will ever happen but nice to think about.

Day 2 part 2 of Mystery Trip

It seemed that about all we did on this mystery trip was eat. I bet I gained 10 lbs. 

We had breakfast every morning at John's Restaurant across the street from the hotel. They were ready for the bus tour crowds with a nice buffet and able staff. On this trip we had all meals covered, tips and all, except lunch. Pretty fun just eating and walking out!! 

For lunch Day 2, (following our moonshine tasting) we drove to Prosser's on rte. 17. They had a low-country buffet. This is my plate.
sweet potatoes, collards, green beans, potato salad, slaw, chicken gizzards and something I had never heard of before.... chicken bog. 
That stuff was good. I hope I can learn to make it at home! 

We got some rest and then headed out again for a dinner play at Pirates Voyage. Now, I've never done one of those dinner play thingys and this was one of the best. (of course, it is because I have no other to judge it by) and it was great fun. 

They said not to take pictures during the show. But, I took a few right at the end. I wasn't the only one. What are they going to do... arrest us!!! 

During the pre-show, Salty the sea-lion entertained us. Here he is giving himself a hand!

 I wish I could have gotten better pictures of the colorful macaws flying around the room but each picture I took was blurry.

Part of the elaborate finale. 
We thoroughly enjoyed the show and the food.
