Fri, Oct 18 - Almost every morning for the past two weeks, since we have been at TT Orlando, Pat, Barb and I would leave the Pickleball courts and meet at the refreshing (burrrrr) pool for Water Aerobics using my Billie Jo CD.  It was there that we met Bonnie who joined us in the water each morning.

Here we are trying to keep warm in that COLD COLD water!!  Faye, Karen joined us for one day, Barb, Bonnie, and Pat.

Yesterday (Thursday) morning, Bonnie mentioned that she had found out about a wholesale seafood outlet in Orlando where you could get fresh Maine Lobster.  She and her husband Clyde had bought some and had them for dinner the night before.  She said they were wonderful!!  The catch was:  You had to have a special license to deal with a wholesaler to be able to buy from the seafood outlet.  Bonnie had such a license because of her Bling Bling business and she offered to get some Lobsters for her new Water Aerobics friends!  Thus, a Lobster Feast was planned for Friday afternoon!!

Our Chef Mitch checks out the Lobster that Clyde and Bonnie had just picked up from the seafood outlet.  Barb watches in the background.  After seeing the Lobster, Mitch quickly made his decision to steam the Lobsters rather than putting them on the grill.

Happy hour while waiting for our Lobster:  Pat and John

Barb and Mitch.

Bonnie and Clyde.

Faye and Ken.

The Lobsters are ready!!  They look amazing!!!

The Lobster Feast is on!!  Lobster, Corn-On-The-Cob, Green Salad and Breads, followed by Bundt Cake and Coffee!  It was divine!!!

A feast on my plate!!

Thank you everyone for making this an AMAZING LOBSTER FEAST!!


Wed, Oct 16 - It's Wednesday!!  Bang Bang Shrimp Wednesday at the Bonefish Grill!!!  Only $5 all day!!  As we were driving home on Rt. 192 the other day, we noticed a Bonefish Grill on the right that was not there the last time we were in Florida in 2010!  It is just a few miles from our campground at TT Orlando!  We could not wait for Wednesday to get here!!

John and Pat joined us on Wednesday when we went out to Bonefish Grill.  It was the first time they had tried the Bang Bang Shrimp!  We each had an order of Shrimp and couples shared a salad to make it dinner.  It was really delicious as usual!!

Can't believe I didn't think about taking a picture until we had already eaten all of our Shrimp!!


Mon, Oct 14 - We have a really good group of Pickleball players here at TT Orlando even though it is still early in the season.  We figured it was time for a Pickleball Happy Hour at our site!!

Larry and Lee just checked in yesterday and played this morning.  We were delighted to have the newly weds at our Happy Hour (married January)!

Patty and Frank.  Frank is a new Pickleball player.  We have not gotten Patty out there yet, but Frank loves the game!

Amy and Terry are also newly weds (February) and we welcome them into the Pickleball group!!

We met Rick and Eve out west at TT Wilderness Lakes and again at TT Chesapeake Bay earlier this year.  They are very active around the campground, playing Pickleball, and getting people together for Water Volley Ball and Fast Track!

We had met Diane and Jerry earlier, at TT Verde Valley, I think!  Good to run into them again.

And Ken and Faye.  Lots of fun to have the group over for Happy Hour and get to know everybody better!!
