Of Fins and Feathers

Last weekend, my DH and I went to Bass Pro Shop. Not to shop for a new boat or sporting accessories, but for dinner! I had heard nice comments about the restaurant so we decided to give it a try. The atmosphere inside was serene and lodge-like. Fish were mounted on the walls and there were various framed artwork of fisherman-in-pose with the catch of the day, but the scene-stealer was the enormous aquarium filled with all varieties of fish. The food was excellent and the prices reasonable. We both had a cup of clam chowder soup and I've never had this soup before with so much clam in it! DH had the Sportsman's Platter with Fried Shrimp, Catfish and Alligator. Yummy! I had the catch of the day, Snapper, and it was served on a bed of rice pilaf with fresh vegetables. Outstanding! We chose not to have dessert but they all looked great. If you're ever in the area (or check for other locations), I would highly recommend this restaurant.

On my way to work yesterday, I was driving down the frontage road and what do I came across? Just waddling free and easy, right down the middle of the road.

There was no yellow bus and no flashing lights, but I stopped anyway. :) Too cute. As I sat and waited in my van, momma or poppa, not sure which one, came up close to the driver's side and started honking at me, probably to warn me away from the babies.

This morning I noticed the family sleeping next to the pond of the subdivision next to mine. Maybe yesterday they were enroute to their new home.

Happy Memorial Day! I'm going to my cousin's graduation party in Kentucky. I'm looking forward to the drive where I can stitch and a couple days of R&R. Have a wonderful holiday weekend!
