Salads, Spoonbills, & Sunset Scenes August 11, 2015

Posted by nrhatch in Food & Drink, Humor.

For our 31st Anniversary, we went to Village Idiot Pizzeria.  A sign on the door said, “Closed.  On vacation for the month of June.”

They are NO idiots!

We came up with Plan B . . . dinner at the Bridge Tender Inn on Bridge Street.

Only the salads (and our waitress) turned out to be vegetarian friendly.

While waiting for our salads to arrive, we watched the locals.

As they spooned up muddy waters.

For a soothing sushi dinner.

While watching out for ankle biters!

After dinner, we walked down the beach to check out the groin project.

Looking it over . . . up and down . . . top to bottom.

We walked back to Bridge Street and watched the sun set.

Enjoying coastal colors and cheerful company.

Before retrieving the car, we turned around for a final peek.

Aah . . . that’s better!

Closed for the month of June. Now that’s heaven.

nrhatch - August 11, 2015

When we stopped back in July, they said they’d spent June in Maine . . . not too shabby.

2. Jill Weatherholt - August 11, 2015

Happy Anniversary, Nancy! Nice job capturing a perfect sunset…beautiful!

nrhatch - August 11, 2015

Thanks, Jill. As anniversaries go, #31 was low key but sunny.

3. Pix Under the Oaks - August 11, 2015

Now that’s the way to spend an anniversary… on the beach! Happy Anniversary you two! Wonderful pictures, Nancy! Good Morning!

nrhatch - August 11, 2015

Thanks, Pix! In the summer, we enjoy morning and evening beach walks ~ we stay inside during the heat of the day. 😎

4. Rainee - August 11, 2015

Lovely photos and it looks like you had a relaxing anniversary – congratulations 🙂

nrhatch - August 11, 2015

Thanks, Rainee! Life is all about be willing to move to Plan B when Plan A doesn’t pan out.

5. anotherday2paradise - August 11, 2015

Happy 31st and many more, to you and hubby. How lovely to share your anniversary with spoonies and a gorgeous sunset over the ocean……not so much the ankle biters though. 🙂

nrhatch - August 11, 2015

Thanks, Sylvia. The spoonbill was a nice surprise as we waited for our salads to arrive ~ and we didn’t see a single ankle biter!

anotherday2paradise - August 11, 2015

Two nice bits of luck. 🙂

6. NancyTex - August 11, 2015

Happy Anniversary,NH! I hope they had some yummy dessert following that salad!

nrhatch - August 11, 2015

We spied a yummy dessert on the menu. We ordered it . . . too late! Someone else got the last slice of chocolate Kahlua pie.

7. Val Boyko - August 11, 2015

Plan B was not too shabby. Nature provided the perfect ending.
Happy Anniversary you two!

nrhatch - August 11, 2015

Thanks, Val! Even after missing out on the Kahlua pie, we enjoyed the sweet finish to our day.

8. Carol Ferenc - August 11, 2015

I’d take Plan B near the ocean any day. Happy anniversary!

nrhatch - August 11, 2015

Thanks! Plan B worked out quite well.

9. tlryder - August 11, 2015

Happy anniversary! I used to frequent a little Thai restaurant that closed every July. They could have bought a bigger building and expanded their business, but they liked being able to go visit relatives in Thailand for a month every summer, so they stayed with the small, paid-off building. I really admired their dedication to balancing business and family life.

nrhatch - August 11, 2015

Finding that balance is hard to do . . . but it’s worth it!

10. Patricia - August 11, 2015

Sounds and looks like a wonderful anniverary date. Congratulations and happy days ahead.

nrhatch - August 11, 2015

Thanks! Here’s to living happily ever after . . . on a moment by moment basis.

11. diannegray - August 11, 2015

Happy Anniversary for June, Nancy – what a relaxing way to spend it. I wish I could have taken the entire month of June off. These people sure know where their priorities lie 😀

nrhatch - August 11, 2015

That’s what I thought. Sounds like they enjoyed some cooler temps in Maine.

12. Debra - August 12, 2015

Every anniversary, even low-key, is special. I like the way you spent this one, to be sure. And those sunsets on the beach are simply magical. I love the Spoonbills, too. I think you may have described a perfect day! 🙂

nrhatch - August 12, 2015

Thanks, Debra! We’ve enjoyed a few “over the top” anniversary celebrations, but far more “low key” ones.

13. Barb - August 12, 2015

Happy Anniversary Nancy, and a nice, relaxing way to spend it. Love that sunset.

nrhatch - August 12, 2015

Thanks, Barb! Sunrises and sunsets bookend our days, marking the passage of time.

14. Tiny - August 12, 2015

Congrats on your anniversary! Looks like it was a wonderful one, complete with a fabulous sunset!

nrhatch - August 13, 2015

Thanks, Tiny! When things didn’t pan out with Plan A, we went with the flow and allowed Plan B to unfold . . . in technicolor.

15. livelytwist - August 17, 2015

Happy anniversary! They must really cherish their vacation time at the Village Idiot Pizzeria or not have enough staff to run the place.

nrhatch - August 17, 2015

Thanks, Timi. Here’s to living happily ever after . . . on a moment by moment basis.

The tourist trade in Florida slows down enough each summer to allow restaurants to press *PAUSE* and take a breather.
