Life . . . Sweet & Savory Pleasures March 25, 2012

Posted by nrhatch in Art & Photography, Food & Drink, Poetry, Travel & Leisure.

Sandbar Beach Cafe
Kalik beer and college tunes
Sidewalk souvenirs

Sweet Berries custard
drips down delighted faces
“Let’s not waste a drop”

At Gulf Coast Cafe
we consume carbohydrates
devouring the view

A simple supper:
dirty rice, fresh green beans, ice
cold watermelon

Starfish Company
Rustic waterfront tables
Hungry pelicans

Fragrant bread paired with
melted Raclette fuels heated
poker tournament

Fried Green Tomatoes
share the stage with tossed salads
and assorted sides


 Potatoes, onions
Celery, carrots, peppers
A good day for soup

The Gulf Coast beckons
Lobster Roll and Key Lime Pie
On Siesta Key

Starry night smiles
Bolt appears . . . fresh hot buttered
popcorn disappears

Lunch at Tuscany
allows us to digest tour
of Freedom Village

Vacation’s end calls
for impromptu fun ~ ping-pong
paddles and peach pie

Tall tower offers
shade, capturing sea breezes
Kayaks paddle by

Coffee on the deck
A quiet conversation
Time flies so quickly

Labor Day Crab Fest
Celebrating Time’s Passage
Summer’s end, again

Aah . . . that’s better!
